    Musing on old times-The Pretender

    So I went to the rack reaching for Jackson Browne's Running On Empty, and came up empty, realizing I didn't have it here in the desert. The only JB cd I have is The Pretender. Now back in FL, I have a 1/2 speed master vinyl of this record, but I threw in the cd available here- what a wonderful record this is! At the time, I had no idea that his 1st wife had committed suicide. Always thought it was well recorded, and even the cd, played through a minimal system here (but at least with the new tube pre), sounded most excellent. Never necessarily agreed with his California left-wing politics, but from the S/T debut in 72 thru 77's Running On Empty, this was about as good as it got for me.

    Wonder what I'll dredge up now...............the room smells like ozone.

    Good ol JB made some good music in his prime. For Everyman, Late For the Sky and the Pretender two of my favorites from that era.
    Do I have to spell it out?




    Oh No
