During his time as part of the popular duo, Hall released the solo album Sacred Songs (1980), with guitar and production work by Robert Fripp. Another Hall album came in 1986, Three Hearts in the Happy Ending Machine, with songwriting contributions from Allen, Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and producer T-Bone Wolk.

(The show's site provides a full archive of previous performances.)
Hall released another solo album, Laughing Down Crying, in the fall of 2011. Not long after, the musician was in the throes of filming a DIY Network home-improvement show, The Daryl Hall Project, which is slated to premiere in 2014.
