Thanks for the post. I like a lot of these artists and certainly enjoy Jackson Browne.

jb really did write a lot of excellent songs, as this tribute shows, and he was the hub of the whole asylum records/la singer-songwriter thing. for me, though, he went into a slow, steady artistic decline after his first three records--the best songs on "running on empty" are covers and i never really liked "the pretender," though "lawyers in love is kinda underated. anyway, a nice listen; thanks for the rec.
Thx for the heads-up, Mofi. Jackson Browne is a favorite of many of us "of a certain age" aka old farts. I'll head right over to Amazon and order it. BTW, a great tribute album is the 2 disk set "This One's For Him" tribute to Guy Clark. Great songs given very good treatments...There are no real clunkers. One or two not great, but many are fantastic.
You should check out the group "Venice". They are 4 guys. 2 sets of brothers that are cousins. 2 of the brothers are the brothers of the Lennon Sisters. Sorry to get off the subject, but I've seen these guys live and they are so worth hearing. Incredible harmonies. I was pleasantly surprised to see them on this tribute album to Jackson. Also, loved this album!!
