Editorial Reviews

A sequel to the 2005 Grammy nominated Vol. I. Twelve songs culled from Browne's extensive and critically acclaimed solo acoustic concerts around the world over the past few years. Like its predecessor, it captures both spirited and humorous exchanges between Jackson and his audiences, making for a truly intimate listening experience. It reaches back to his debut album and spans his entire career with highlights such as "Never Stop", The Night Inside Me" and "In The Shape Of A Heart".

Jackson Browne's second installment of "Solo Acoustic", shows an introspective and revealing side of Browne. Not just music, there is a self-biography and story-telling approach to the songs, much like Harry Chapin used to do in the 70's that endeared him to millions worldwide. There is no backing full piece band behind him: just Browne, his guitar/piano and the small intimate audience. It's a `here is what i am really like' performance that is made to be heard from beginning to end, and will not lend itself well to IPODs.

Even the songs that Browne selects from his vast catalog are personal, close to the vest songs that don't need much embellishment for a listener to understand that they are more than just words and music. It's also not some kind of unplugged retread of his hits either: it's an intimate recital that you could only get from small venue atmosphere. It opens up, perhaps, a new genre of recordings: personal presentations with the artist speaking ad-lib about the songs, life, loves and disappointments. It differentiates itself from other uplugged cds in this way.

The songs are mostly culled from his latest studio release: 2002's "The Naked Ride Home" (4 songs); "Somebody's Baby" from the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack; "From Everyman" and from "Looking East". With the exception of 3 or 4 songs, the body of the work will be largely unknown except to Browne fans who know his entire catalog. For me, this made the music even more evocative, since it's just not something you sing along to in the car, it's a bonding between listener and artist: something only a privileged few in music can pull off.

I've loved Jackson Browne and his music since I first heard "Fountain of Sorrow" back when it was a new song. I have most of his recordings and many have been moved from scratched vinyl to tape to CD.

What I love best about the two solo acoustic CDs is that nothing comes between the man and his music. While these are live concert recordings, the sussurrus of voices and applause are kept to a minimum so all you hear is Browne's crystal clear voice and his guitar--with an occasional piano for accompaniment.

These aren't the Browne songs with a lot of radio play. "Somebody's Baby" is probably the most commercial of this collection, followed by "Redneck Friend." Still, every song is beautifully engineered with the quality Browne's voice and musicianship deserves.

On his new CD Solo Acoustic 2, Jackson Browne has produced another intimate, classy collection of "unplugged" material from throughout his career. As with Vol. 1, it's just Browne and his guitar (or sometimes piano), a setting that seems to highlight the lyrics more strongly, prompting a greater appreciation of the songwriter as a poet. I'm impressed that his vocals have remained so pure and true after all the years, and what minor trembling or breathless moments occur just add character to the performances. Vol. 2 has a somewhat more obscure songlist - many of the more "famous" Browne tunes already having appeared on Vol. 1 - but they're still a well chosen set of tunes. Most of them converted really nicely to the acoustic mode, particularly "The Night Inside Me" and a movingly beautiful "Sky Blue And Black." A few songs, particularly "In The Shape of a Heart," fall a bit flat without the band. Seven cuts have brief spoken introductions by the artist. Most are pretty uninformative and completely off the cuff, and include a lot of shout-outs from the live audience. Fortunately (also like Vol.1), the spoken bits are separately indexed so they can be skipped. I will be listening to the CD many more times, but I won't need to hear the intros ever again.

Jackson Browne's SOLO ACOUSTIC VOL. 1 was the rarest of live albums: it was close, intimate, friendly, inviting--you felt like you were a part of the show, just listening through your headphones. VOL. 2 is much the same. There is a greater emphasis upon Browne's 90's work, but fortunately he largely avoids the political tunes (granted, Browne can write a political song like few can; but let's face it, we don't like having politics shoved down our throats). Instead, he sticks to songs of love and longing, of growing wiser and (more or less) better.

Here is a man who hauls around a huge collection of guitars, who declares "Aw sh**" when he misses a note, he jokes with the audience as though they were his close friends. Jackson Browne is one of rock 'n roll's greatest singer/songwriters--but he became that way because of his humanity, because of his poetic ability to take an ordinary life and put it to music. His songs are largely works of art (in a career as long as his, there are obviously a few mis-steps; the most impressive thing about Browne's body of work his how FEW mis-steps there really are), which speak to everyone at some point in their lives. SOLO ACOUSTIC VOL. 2 draws you into his world, makes you feel like you're sitting around a fireplace, drinking hot chocolate and listening to your Uncle Jack play a few songs on the guitar and piano. As the record closes, it'll leave you wanting more. So here's to hoping there's a VOL. 3 coming out sometime in the near future; and in the meantime, sit back and get lost in the world of Jackson Browne.
