Jackson Browne's new CD

I know it's Christmas and all are playing Diana Krall's Christmas CD and such but, this new J. Browne "solo acoustic" has been in my player for weeks now! The more I play it the more I want to hear it. It J. Browne's good stuff, you know the stuff that never gets played on classic rock stations. Songs such as The Birds of St. Marks,Fountain of Sorrow,These days, etc. These songs are what I think J. Browne is all about. I'm not into those top 40 stuff he did to pay the bills. Oh well, music is what it's all about, just thought I would let some others know about this great CD.
I've got to agree. A great CD. I can't count how many times I've played it since I got it.Pretty well recorded as well, although a bit close miked on the voice. Jim
I just bought it . . . I agree, it's great. It's a must-have for anyone who likes, or at one time liked Jackson Brown.
There was a thread here a couple of months ago about this same CD, and I said then, as I say now...FABULOUS!!! I love Jackson Browne, saw him at Red Rocks this last summer and he was just incredible.

They just reissued his "Running on Empty" CD as a totally remastered Anniversary Edition with a bonus CD/DVD. It is also VERY, VERY good. It sounds MUCH better than the original, which kinda has always sucked as far as sound quality went, but the remastered version is stellar!!!
Yes it is very good. See article in the latest Stereophile.
Gotta be one of the best CD's I have ever heard. Amazing.
Even not being a JB fan, I have taken a huge liking to this CD. Play it just about every day. Well recorded, great music, and some humor to boot....Looking forward to Vol II, which he said he would do if this CD took off.
Performance = 4.5 stars
Recording = 4.5 stars
I'm having trouble getting it out of my CD player, too.
Well I guess I know what I'm getting myself for Christmas! I saw him a few years back when he opened for Steely Dan. What a show ... I not only bought his new CD at the time but filled in the rest of my collection. Steely was outstanding but I was just blown away by JB.

I was driving across Montana this summer and I threw in Running on Empty ... I had forgot how fantastic that CD was. I listened to it maybe 3-4 times back to back - it was a great feeling, so much awesome music on that CD. I really can’t figure why his commercial success never fell in line with the quality of his work but I guess that applies to so many good bands (Wilco, Phish, Beck, The Mule).

That guy should never open for anybody ... it's such a teaser
Thanks for the tip, guys. I picked this up this morning as a birthday present to me. Great music and seems to be very well recorded.
Where is the best city in the country to live in?
Ha! I was trying to figure that out, too! It doesn't matter, they vote a new city in every year.
I know the CD was recorded in several cities, but I believe he's referring to Palm Desert, California. This one made my Audiogon top 5 list this year.
