JACKSON BROWNE Running On Empty|
Jackson Browne's classic album, originally released back in 1977, gets a revamp with an added DVD disc featuring the entire album in surround sound plus photos and a couple of video montages.
If you have yet to sample the delights of this album then you are in for a treat. Lyrically it is based around life on the road with songs being recoded live, in hotel rooms and one even on a coach!
The title track contains a cracking guitar soloing – nothing flashy but damn good to hear. 'You Love The Thunder' hints at a country rock vibe a la the Eagles, whilst 'The Load-Out' must be one of the few tunes to show the roadies' life in a true light.
There are some, wonderful performances on here not least Brown himself and his melancholic vocals. David Lindley stands out to with his lap-steel and fiddle playing.
A very classy package and if you don't have this album I suggest you grab a copy now.
