A good bassist I've been gigging with recently played me some JDS. I didn't get into him back in the day, caring for The Eagles not at all, Ronstadt a little, though Jackson Browne a lot. I was somewhat underwhelmed, but perhaps JD takes a few plays to reveal himself. His LP's are available used for real cheap,
@rpeluso, have you seen the Ronstadt documentary? Fanf*ckingtastic! I have a newfound appreciation for her. I don’t care what Costello thinks, she may be the "best" female singer of her generation.
Souther had a role in the Nashville TV series, and did a good acting job. Seen in various episodes were Buddy Miller, Vince Gill, and a few other faves of mine. T Bone Burnett was the show's musical director.
