Jackson Browne: Jackson Browne (2023 Remaster)

Read "Jackson Browne (2023 Remaster)" reviewed by Doug Collette

It was only a matter of time until Jackson Browne turned his attention to an archival endeavor devoted to his self-titled debut album. Having plumbed the vault for his masterwork, Late For The Sky (Inside Recordings, 2014), then a re-release of his most commercially-successful record, Running On Empty (Inside Recordings, 2019) five years later, he may have been saving what he considers his best for last (unless and until he turns his attention to his brilliant sophomore outing For Everyman ...

Jackson Browne: Running On Empty: 2019 Remaster

Read "Running On Empty: 2019 Remaster" reviewed by Doug Collette

There is no other album quite like Running On Empty in Jackson Browne's discography. But then, there may be no other album comparable in contemporary rock: it is an absolutely unflinching portrait of an artist looking for a connection to the muse and only fleetingly establishing one. In a sense, this 1977 album resides at the opposite end of the creative spectrum from the masterwork Late For The Sky (Asylum,1974) wherein this archetypal singer/songwriter captured an early peak of excellence ...

Nevertheless, the diptych of “For a Dancer" and “Fountain of Sorrow" was ...

Jackson Browne / David Lindley: Love Is Strange

Read "Love Is Strange" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jackson Browne and David Lindley's Love Is Strange isn't merely a clever reworking of familiar material. On the contrary, it is brilliantly conceived and executed reinterpretation of songs in which the principals and their comrades display as much respect for each other as musicians as they do the extraordinary compositions themselves.

Recorded over five nights of concerts in Spain during March of 2006, this double-CD reunites Browne and Lindley, who collaborated as band mates during most of the seventies and ...

Jackson Browne at The Shelburne Museum, Shelburne, Vermont

Read "Jackson Browne at The Shelburne Museum, Shelburne, Vermont" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jackson Browne Shelburne Museum Shelburne, Vermont July 14th, 2009

Jackson Browne should have opened his two-set performance with “I'm Alive," closed it with “Running On Empty," and encored with the much-requested “Redneck Friend." In so doing he'd have effectively avoided the pedestrian moments early in the first set ("Boulevard," “Tender is the Night") and framed his entire show in such a way as to highlight the mix of new and old material.
