Whether he’s sung of political upheavals or the survival of everyday dreams, Jackson Browne has recorded some of the most eloquent songs of our era. His lyrics have traced his quest for insight in a world of heartbreak and temptation. On Solo Acoustic Vol. 1, Browne glances back over the high points of his four-decade career with renewed creative fire. Distilled from a series of intimate live performances, these tracks feature the singer/songwriter backed only by his own acoustic guitar and piano. From the youthful introspection of “These Days” through the outraged commentary of “Lives in the Balance” and the mature reflection of “Looking East,” Browne revisits some of his most enduring works. Also included is a never-before-recorded tune, the haunting “Birds of St. Marks.” An essential document from a legendary career, Solo Acoustic Vol. 1, is Jackson Browne at his most nakedly personal and profoundly moving.
