JACKSON BROWNE Released His Debut LP 50 Years Ago

Back in time

9 January 2022

Artist: JACKSON BROWNE
Who: Famous singer-songwriter still going strong.
Last year, he released Downhill From Everywhere,
his 15th LP.

Anniversary album: JACKSON BROWNE
Also known, mistakenly, as ‘Saturate Before Using’
which was printed on top of the LP.
Released: January 1972, 50 years ago this month.

Rolling Stone wrote back then: “It’s not often that a single album is
sufficient to place a new performer among the first rank of recording
artists. Jackson Browne’s long-awaited debut album chimes in its author
with the resounding authority of an Astral Weeks, a Gasoline Alley, or an
After the Gold Rush. Its awesome excellence causes one to wonder why, with
Browne’s reputation as an important songwriter established as far back as
1968, this album was so long in coming.”

Singles: Doctor My Eyes / Rock Me On The Water

JACKSON BROWNE – ‘THE PRETENDER’ 45 Years Ago

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.

Soulful Sunday With Legend JACKSON BROWNE – New Album ‘DOWNHILL FROM EVERY WHERE’ Out Now

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

1 August 2021

Artist: JACKSON BROWNE (age: 72)
Active: since 1966 / 15 studio albums
(including the new one)

New album: Downhill From Everywhere
Released: 30 July 2021

One of those imperishable artists from bygone hippie times.
One of those legendary Americana masters of songwriting.

AllMusic says: “An album full of strong performances, few missteps,
and the weary charisma that has been one of the singer’s hallmarks.
A half-century into his career, that timeless feeling that signified even
Browne’s earliest releases is still present, if ever-so-slightly more
shopworn by time’s passing.”

Don’t move an inch, have yourself a lazy Sunday…
