Editors’ Notes

A companion piece to 2005’s Solo Acoustic, Vol. 1, 2008’s Vol. 2 again presents Jackson Browne in a relaxed live setting where with just acoustic guitar or piano he brings his deep catalog to new life. While Browne’s mellow musical tone has come to represent a laid-back ‘70s Southern California lifestyle, the reality beyond the surface is quite different. Browne is a dynamic live performer, infusing great intensity with his gripping often emotionally ambivalent songs that are far more saturated with fright and worry than their gentle piano notes suggest. Browne has never shied from speaking his mind and many of his tunes are less those of a ‘70s styled navel-gazing troubadour than those of a concerned citizen. “Casino Nation” is the most outspoken here, but Browne doesn’t settle for a mere recapitulation of his greatest hits either. “Somebody’s Baby” from the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack is the album’s most well-known track. “Something Fine” reaches back to his debut album. “My Stunning Mystery Companion,” “The Night Inside Me,” “Sky Blue and Black” and “In the Shape of a Heart” show that he’s never lost his melodic touch. Throw in some casual chatting with audience and you have an evening with an engaging and extremely talented old friend.

Customer Reviews


This album may have fewer "well known" songs than Volume I, but each song on Volume II is a gem. I'm only 20, but I'm a Jackson Browne fan for life. JACKSON BROWNE ROCKS!

Two is Better Than One

Jackson Browne's second addition to his solo acoustic tour is "Something Fine!" His acoustic versions are so much more intimate than his studio work. This is a must have for all Browne fans, and if you can't decide if you want to spend $10 on me you do!

A Teenager's Perspective

I'm 16 years old, and Jackson Browne is my favorite singer. Most JB fans are a generation older than I am, but he can still appeal to teenagers! I especially love Sky Blue and Black, and this live version is excellent! Great album!

In many ways, Jackson Browne was the quintessential sensitive California singer/songwriter of the early '70s. Only Joni Mitchell and James Taylor ranked alongside him in terms of influence, but neither artist tapped into the post-'60s Zeitgeist like Browne. While the majority of his classic '70s work was unflinchingly personal, it nevertheless provided a touchstone for a generation of maturing baby boomers coming to terms with adulthood. Not only did his introspective, literate lyrics strike a nerve,...
