Day 62

Jackson Browne- Running On Empty

I'm going to keep this post brief. Mainly because I'm running out of nice things to say about Jackson Browne.

But I do really like this album too. I thought it was really cool that it was recorded live in concert or in hotel rooms, buses, or backstage. I didn't realize that "Running On Empty" was never recorded in studio. I suppose all the years growing up and hearing it on the radio, they edited out the applause at the beginning and end.
That's definitely a great tune, but my favorite song on the album is "The Load-Out". Great ode to the roadies out on tour.

Well that's it for Jackson Browne in the 70's. Five down and three to go. Here's a video of "The Load-Out".
