    A welcome release from Jackson Browne featuring the superb David Lindley prior to their European Tour. They are accompanied by a number of spanish musicians in a concert recorded in Spain during 2006.

    There's nothing really new from JB with the album featuring well-trodden Browne fayre with a more acoustic bias and some interesting 'spanishesque' arrangements of some of his popular tunes with Lindley and others sharing or taking the vocals on some songs. Indeed there is a lot of the song introductions are spoken in Spanish by Browne. There are a couple of songs featuring Browne's spanish collaborators too.

    It feels much more like Browne's last two 'Acoustic Live' albums, atmospheric, warm and relaxed with Lindley's fiddle and slide/guitar playing simply superb. No matter how many times I hear 'For Everyman' or 'Late For The Sky' I never grow tired of them. The minor changes to the arrangements and Lindley's playing provide such high quality across both discs.

    It's a fine recording, highly recommend to existing fans and those wanting to explore the talent of a great song-writer and performer.

    Just waiting for this to arrive. JB is, quite simply my favourite artist. Especially those early albums. Still remember the first time I heard him, when I should have been studying for my "O" levels, in a long gone record shop in Canterbury,Kentin a "listening booth". Bought "For Everyman" and still love playing the first side all the way through from Take it Easy to These Days. 20 minutes of anyone's life well spent.

    Late for the Sky is equally splendiferous. Fountain of Sorrow, fountain of life. It just doesn't get any better.



    No matter how fast I run I can never seem to get away from me.

    I just couldn't do without his albums in my collection, I love his voice, his melodies and his lyrics.

    Everybody I talk to is ready to leave
    With the light of the morning
    They've seen the end coming down long enough to believe
    That they've heard their last warning
    Standing alone
    Each has his own ticket in his hand
    And as the evening descends
    I sit thinking 'bout Everyman

    Seems like I've always been looking for some other place
    To get it together
    Where with a few of my friends I could give up the race
    And maybe find something better
    But all my fine dreams
    Well though out schemes to gain the motherland
    Have all eventually come down to waiting for Everyman

    Waiting here for Everyman--
    Make it on your own if you think you can
    If you see somewhere to go I understand
    Waiting here for Everyman--
    Don't ask me if he'll show -- baby I don't know

    Make it on your own if you think you can
    Somewhere later on you'll have to take a stand
    Then you're going to need a hand

    Everybody's just waiting to hear from the one
    Who can give them the answers
    And lead them back to that place in the warmth of the sun
    Where sweet childhood still dances
    Who'll come along
    And hold out that strong and gentle father's hand?
    Long ago I heard someone say something 'bout Everyman

    Waiting here for Everyman--
    Make it on your own if you think you can
    If you see somewhere to go I understand

    I'm not trying to tell you that I've seen the plan
    Turn and walk away if you think I am--
    But don't think too badly of one who's left holding sand
    He's just another dreamer, dreaming 'bout Everyman

    I'm a JB fan, but David Lindley is a genius IMO. I own all of David's albums which are excellently mastered.

    The CD is partly because JB lives in Spain mostly now-or did.
    Like lStanley, my youth was paralleled by his music.
    And David Lindley's albums are some of my all time favourites. Always lift the spirits. Would (and do) recommend to all.
    He promised to do another El Rayo X (group) CD, but am still waiting!
    Current Concerts are quite pricy though!

    Off to see him tonight at The Sage Gateshead. 45 a ticket although not cheap it's reasonably comparable with leading artist concerts at major venues.

    Seen JB a few times but tonight will be my first concert with the genius David L
