Jackson Browne
The Early Days Of Jackson Browne [no label 2CD]
Live at Jabberwocky Club, Syracuse University, New York, March 27, 1971.
One song has swearing.

This is the complete version often referred to as "Jackson Browne’s first known recorded performance". This show appears one year before Browne recorded and released his self-titled debut album that is popularly known as Saturate Before Using. Prior to that, Browne wrote songs for Nico of the Velvet Underground, Tom Rush, the Byrds, Bonnie Raitt and most famous of all, The Eagles. Take It Easy, Desperado and Doolin’ Dalton were all co-written with The Eagles.

Browne’s early songs were mostly romantic but some hinted at social activism. This is an excellent recording of just Browne on guitar or piano playing songs that would later appear on his first and second album, For Everyman. So early in his career, Browne talks to the audience about Black Panther Bobby Seals, an indication he would be active in political causes in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

Many of the songs here remain unrecorded by Browne. Like Neil Young, Browne was prolific in his early years. Unlike Young, he was no rocker. Even when he had a band, the sound was still centered on his songs and lyrics rather than riffs. Browne was much more wordy than his contemporaries and he did garner favorable reviews for his poetic bent.

Jackson Browne’s lasting appeal was his conviction, something that was shared at the time, that an individual could stand up and make a difference. He has since been without a major record label and his latest album is on an indie label. It’s a live album released late in 2005, called Solo Acoustic Vol 1. Just Browne, his guitar and piano and the audience. Just like in the beginning.
