Classy reissues from '70s songsmith
LATE FOR THE SKY
RUNNING ON EMPTY
LA singer-songwriter Jackson Browne has made 11 albums in his 37-year career, starting with Saturate Before Using, a late debut cut in 1972. His style typifies the south California ethic?wholesome, country-tinged, reflective, and haunted by melancholy. This set of reissues comes from the beginning of his discography, omitting second and fourth LPs For Everyman and The Pretender. The discs are remastered but nothing has been added to the packaging and there are no song credits, let alone sleevenotes.
