EDITORS’ NOTES

The brown-eyed, handsome man-child of California's '70s pop-rock scene wrote "These Days" when he was 16, and the rest is era-defining history. Jackson Browne delivers his literate lyrics and memorable melodies with deceptive calm, conveying even the cataclysms of "Before the Deluge" and "Doctor My Eyes" with country-rock cool. Songs like "The Load Out" and "Running On Empty" demystify rock stardom, while "Red Neck Friend" and "I Am a Patriot" do no less for America itself.

3/4 Classic

If you were a fan of seventies singer-songwriters, you probably discovered Jackson Browne either through his association with the Eagles (he co-wrote their first hit “Take It Easy”) or, like me, through his classic concept album of life on the road, “Running on Empty”. At 2 discs, this set is a big improvement over the earlier “The Next Voice You Hear”, and it works...up to a point. It might just be me but it seems like around the time of “Lawyers in Love”, Jackson let his social conscience take over and he seemed to disappear from the radio airwaves. So while disc one is a solid collection of hits, disc 2 sputters about halfway through. And while it skips over great songs like “That Girl Could Sing” and “The Road”, there's still a disc and a half of solid classics of 70's FM radio.
