Editorial Reviews

Jackson Browne & David Lindley's Love Is Strange is a chronicle of their 2006 Tour of Spain. Performing in Madrid, Barcelona, Oveido and Sevilla. The experience is expressed by Jackson Browne as "a CD of some recorded moments, or perhaps a bridge, or a small door, between a life lived mostly in America and time spent with some really good friends in Spain."

5.0 out of 5 stars Intro translation July 3, 2010
By mfan33
Format:Audio CD
I'm surpised about the complaints about the intros being in Spanish, since actually only a little part of them is in Spanish. Anyway,I've translated the Spanish portions in the hope that somebody who might be put off by them won't pass up this terrific set (well, except for maybe three songs). I've made a few changes since Browne's Spanish needs a little fixing, but, that said, I really admire him for making the effort to speak to the audience at the shows in their language.

Intro:
Browne: Hello. Hello, hello. Thank you for coming.

Call it a loan
Browne: This song is a song written by David and me many, many years ago. It's called "Call It A Loan".

The Crow on the Cradle
Browne: This song is a little, not very, but a little old, from the 60s; a song against the war.

Mercury Blues
Browne: Well, here's a song from one of David's albums. It's a song about a car. It's called Mercury 49.

El Rayo X
Browne: This is another one of David's songs, written by Jorge Calderon and David. It's a song in, well it's not Castillian, it's not, well it's Spanish but I'm not sure what kind of Spanish...California Spanish, but via Puerto Rico, Tijuana, I don't know...

Other speaker: Mexican from the north...

Browne: It's a little Mexican. The main thing is, it's true. It's called El Rayo X.

Take It Easy
Browne: This song is a song that I wrote with a great friend, Glen Frey of The Eagles.

Your Bright Baby Blues
Browne: Javier plays an instrument called a banduria.

Tu Tranquilo
Kiko Veneno: This is a great day
Browne: Yes, a great day, yes, yes
Kiko Veneno: A great day for Barcelona, for Albeti (?), for Spain, for the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jackson & David recorded live in Spain May 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Love Is Strange is a welcome live release from Mr. Browne and his old buddy, "El Maestro David Lindley." It contains two CDs with 17 songs from across the two artists' careers (mostly JB's). The other tracks are intros or commentary. Their tour of Spain captured on these discs did not involve a full band, but rather various acoustic settings with the two guys accompanied by a few people playing the odd percussion, whistle or other instrument. (I did miss Lindley's legendary lap steel, which I guess didn't fit in with the format. He does play a tangy slide guitar on several songs.) Jackson is in pretty good voice, about the same as on his Solo Acoustic albums from a couple of years back. A drawback for me personally is that Mr. Browne is often talking in Spanish in the spoken segments. (The song lyrics are mostly in English.) It was admirable of him to speak in the local tongue, but it doesn't help a listener such as I who understands little of the language. Oh well... I suppose that's what the "skip ahead" button is for. Otherwise, I enjoyed this album a lot, especially "Your Bright Baby Blues" from The Pretender, my favorite Browne album, and "Call It A Loan."

A week ago I traveled to Washington to see the Jackson Browne with David Lindley concert with my sister. The only other time I saw Jackson Browne or paid much attention to his music was in 1979 at the No Nukes concert in San Luis Obispo. So I went to the show not expecting to be very into it. I was pleasantly surprised. It was a wonderful concert. This album is a good reflection of that show. The fact that it's acoustic makes it completely pleasant to just turn on and relax to. Last night I sat in bed reading and writing and being soothed and entertained by this album.

Now, it is a concert in SPAIN. Therefore there is Spanish being spoken and sung. In fact, the recording contains a mix of Spanish songs and well-known Jackson Browne songs. I'm studying the Spanish language and think it's beautiful so I was pleased to hear Jackson and David it speaking it to their audience. I thought the Spanish songs were good. But if you're looking for straight American Jackson Browne tunes then you may be disappointed with this recording. As for me, it renewed my appreciation for Jackson's music. In fact, I just downloaded a fresh copy of The Pretender... ah... back to my college days!

First of all, I am a long time Jackson Browne fan. He has been my favorite artist since I was in High School when Running on Empty was released. His lyrics just crush it. I also respect his convictions to stand up for the less fortunate in society. His outspoken political and social viewpoints have no doubt cost him some commercial success, which I give him kudos for.

Wow. Amazing record. I expected a lot as I have always felt that many of JB's best songs involved David Lindley playing along with Jackson. Lindley is a master. On the "Going Home" DVD, there is a segment in which Lindley and Jackson Browne are taking about playing music "in the moment" and JB states that Lindley gets in that zone, every time. Lindley is gifted and a very special talent. Perhaps the most overlooked musician of the last 30 years, from a mass audience standpoint. It's a shame that more people don't know just how brilliant this guy is.

Highlights for me:
Late For The Sky. What can you say. A brilliant song. Anyone who has a pulse and has gone through the emotions of a loving someone deeply and then seeing that relationship end will be deeply moved by this version of Late for The Sky. This is where you will need the Kleenex. Jackson has probably performed this song a thousand times, and yet, you would think he was singing it for the first time. He channeled something deep here from his past on this performance. You can hear it. His vocals are remarkable. I don't often cry, but I wept when I heard this version of the song. A truly remarkable performance. Lindley nails his parts, as usual.

Your Bright Baby Blues. Best version of this song I have ever heard. They have a couple of guest musicians from Barcelona playing with them on this song and they add some very rich layers.
