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

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!!!
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 cant 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
