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.

So this album is the very best of the songs that Jackson Browne has recorded. Indeed that might well be the case. But as Jackson Browne has possibly never recorded a duff track then other than deciding what to leave off the record due to space restrictions compiling this CD should have been an easy job. Although I've been listening to JB for a long time I've never owned a record by him. This offering, to my ears, is excellent! I would say if you don't have any JB records and want just one, this album is a good choice.

I knew most of the songs but was pleased to get them all on this excellently priced CD. Jackson is one of the greats when it comes to singer/songwriters.

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.
