Vintage Country Vinyl - Jackson Browne
The vintage vintage seam has pretty much been mined I'm afraid.
We are now into country rock territory albeit the The Pretender the fourth album by Jackson Browne is actually 40 years old this year
This album was never earmarked for this series primarily because I had totally forgotten that I had it.
It was not until it was plucked from the shelves last weekend as a random selection that it made the list.
Typical Laurel Canyon soft country rock which is alright in relatively small doses. I must admit that I prefer the follow up album Running on Empty probably because I have played it more often
Fellow Laurel Canyon luminaries Don Henley and John David Souther provide the harmonies on the first track with David Crosby and Graham Nash doing the honours on the latter
Jackson Browne - The Only Child
