Back in time

6 November 2021

Artist: JACKSON BROWNE
Who: Legendary, 73-year old, singer-songwriter from L.A.
Started his career in 1966 / 15 studio albums including his
most recent one Downhill From Everywhere, released last July.

Anniversary album: THE PRETENDER – 4th LP
Released: 6 November 1976 – 45 years ago
The record came out a few months after his wife took her
own life and left Browne behind with their 2-yer old son.

AllMusic said: “Browne took a step back from the precipice so well defined
on his first three albums, but doing so didn’t seem to make him feel any better.
The man who had delved so deeply into life’s abyss on his earlier albums was
in search of escape this time around.”
Score: 3.5/5.
