Jackson Browne starter kit!!!
on 4 March 2003
I must confess that I bought this simply to get a copy of "Somebody's Baby" which I think is one of the greatest pop songs ever - and, yes, I realise that Jackson Browne isn't associated with pop. However, you listen to the other tracks and you realise the brilliance of the man. And you wonder why his tracks aren't played more often and, in my case, you feel the world is missing out on something special.
Mr. Browne isn't just a musician, he's also a poet. Listen to some of the lyrics and you will weep - listen to others and he will lift you up, "Running on Empty" being a particularly good example of this, it just picks you up and runs along with you. Sorry, I'm sounding rather evangelical now but I really do feel that he's under rated and this collection is a great introduction to a fine body of music.
