The effect Jackson Browne had in the media with his many relationships with celebrities, including fellow 70's folkie, Joni Mitchell, and his stance politically, have staked his claim in history as not just an inspired individual, but someone who liked to put his point across without exception, when really he started out as an honest world-weary folkster. Indeed, 'Late For The Sky' the title track of what is widely considered Jackson Browne's greatest achievement, is about his failing relationship with Mitchell. It's also the highlight of this and any other album you're likely to find, along with around 20 beautifully crafted, timeless pop songs on a 2 disc set spanning 32 tracks.

Of course Browne wasn't ashamed to put his state of mind into his work, in fact he was one of the best at it. Numerous failed relationships ended with beautiful songs that reflected his personal relationship as well as a thousand others in just a few verses. The lyrics were never overly complicated or winding, nor should they have been; this is your average man singing a song for average people who know their emotions, or to an extent don't. So it was a bit of a shock when he turned political towards the end of the seventies and throughout the eighties, stubbornly sticking to this formula until 1994's superb comeback to original form, 'I'm Alive', throughout his political years showing very little signs of returning to where he began. He also stubbornly refused to release a greatest hits, the first coming in 1999, and this, only the second, appearing in 2004. On this superior collection spanning two discs features pretty much all of the emotions and stances that Jackson Browne ever put across.

I went to see JB at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester with a friend of mine yesterday. She had been a lifelong fan of JB I had heard of him. After 2 hours of acoustic songs I am a fan, not just a fan but a fanatic. Absolutely amazing songs. To anyone over 50 his songs could easily form a soundtrack to your life. The highs and lows, loved and lost, at times he was killing me softly with his songs, to coin a phrase. I may have arrived late but at least I have now found a rich tapestry of one of the best songwriters of his generation. Brilliant a must buy.

Jackson's Browne's music has been the backcloth of lives of many a 50-something - myself included - for more than 30 years. We have shared his joys, sorrows, anguish and hopes as if they were an integral part of our own lives. In fact, that is exactly what these emotions were, as we lived, loved, died, lied... and survived all that life threw at us over the years. Even in our darkest moments, we found solace in the music of the most wonderful songs of Jackson Browne, a man that was walking the same track and spoke the same language.
No 'best of' compilation can deservedly do justice to the sheer breath of talent that is JB. But this collection is almost as close as one could get, a truly wonderful selection of songs, sung with such real passion that they cut to the very soul and, in some cases, turn it inside out.
One could nit-pick: 'Your bright baby blues' and 'Somebody's baby' are not among Jackson's finest moments, enjoyable though they are. And 'Red-necked friend' is a thinly-disguised (but catchy) song about onanism.
It would be easy to substitute and add numerous stand-out tracks, my choices being: 'Song For Adam' (from his first album, Saturate Before Using), 'Walking Slow' (from the Late For The Sky album) 'Ready Or Not' (from For Everyman), 'Cut It Away' (Lawyers In Love), 'Some Bridges' (from I'm Alive) and ' My Problem Is You' and 'Take This Pain' (from Looking East).
The songs here - and many others - are timeless masterpieces that merit and withstand repeated listening. Fans will have all of these tracks already, so the compilation will make a great in-car companion. For those new to the music of Jackson Browne -just buy this album, listen, learn and let your heart open up to one of the greatest artists of the last 50 years.

After the disappointment of the last attempt to produce a greatest hits with 'The Next Voice You Hear', this collection of his best work is truly complete. This is probably as comprehensive a 'best of' collection as I have heard from any artist. Nothing essential has been missed out. If you like Mr Browne then you'll love this. Simply a joy to listen to.

By John Boy TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Aug. 2011
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The compilation was put together by Jackson Browne and spans 1972 to 2002 with tracks in chronological order. Disc 1 covers 1972 to 1977, and disc 2 continues with 1977 through some leaner times up to 2002. OK so you're not in your 60's, but you may have seen his set at Glastonbury in 2010, in which case you're going to recognise a lot of those tracks on both CDs.

Musically there's the days of the Laurel Canyon set with David Crosby and Graham Nash harmonising on Doctor My Eyes. Elton John and Glen Frey provide piano and backing vocal on Redneck Friend. The soft West Coast feel was replaced by his political stance in the 1980s. The arrangements have a bigger sound in the late 80's and up to 1996. In 2002 he appears to have been looking for a different sound as Bob Clearmountain is credited with mixing The Naked Ride Home album.

Some of the tracks are not as strong, but even then, the great tracks make this one of the bargain CDs of 2011.
