Info for Jackson Browne (Remastered)

Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne releases a remastered version of his debut album "Jackson Browne". Jackson Browne had already built quite the impressive resume by the time he signed with Asylum Records to release his debut album. The young singer-songwriter had already spent time as a member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, which he joined soon after graduating from high school. His songwriting prowess found Browne penning tunes for the likes of Linda Ronstadt, the Byrds, and Eagles.

So anticipation was high when Browne delivered his self-titled first LP in January 1972. Rolling Stone was fast to heap praise on the emerging artist: "It’s not often that a single album is sufficient to place a new performer among the first rank of recording artists," gushed the record review. "Jackson Browne’s long-awaited debut album chimes in its author with the resounding authority of an Astral Weeks, a Gasoline Alley, or an After the Gold Rush."

Jackson Browne made a solid chart run for a debut, peaking at #53 on the Billboard 200 for the week of May 28, 1972. The #1 album in the country that week: Roberta Flack's debut, First Take. It was Jackson Browne's lead single, "Doctor, My Eyes," that introduced the new artist to the mainstream. A radio hit, the song peaked at #8 for the week of May 7, 1972. America's top tune that week: Roberta Flack with "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."

While Browne's follow-up single, "Rock Me on the Water," only made it to #48 on the Hot 100, the impact of this new singer-songwriter had already been well impressed on the world of music. Jackson Browne had arrived, and was a force to be reckoned with.

“It’s not often that a single album is sufficient to place a new performer among the first rank of recording artists. Jackson Browne’s long-awaited debut album chimes in its author with the resounding authority of an Astral Weeks, a Gasoline Alley, or an After the Gold Rush. Jackson Browne’s sensibility is romantic in the best sense of the term: his songs are capable of generating a highly charged, compelling atmosphere throughout, and-just as important-of sustaining that pitch in the listener’s mind long after they’ve ended. Don’t miss it.” (Bud Scoppa, Rolling Stone)

"One of the reasons that Jackson Browne's first album is among the most auspicious debuts in pop music history is that it doesn't sound like a debut. Although only 23, Browne had kicked around the music business for several years, writing and performing as a member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and as Nico's backup guitarist, among other gigs, while many artists recorded his material. So, if this doesn't sound like someone's first batch of songs, it's not. Browne had developed an unusual use of language, studiedly casual yet full of striking imagery, and a post-apocalyptic viewpoint to go with it. He sang with a calm certainty over spare, discretely placed backup -- piano, acoustic guitar, bass, drums, congas, violin, harmony vocals -- that highlighted the songs and always seemed about to disappear. In song after song, Browne described the world as a desert in need of moisture, and this wet/dry dichotomy carried over into much of the imagery. In "Doctor My Eyes," the album's most propulsive song and a Top Ten hit, he sang, "Doctor, my eyes/Cannot see the sky/Is this the prize/For having learned how not to cry?" If Browne's outlook was cautious, its expression was original. His conditional optimism seemed to reflect hard experience, and in the early '70s, the aftermath of the '60s, a lot of his listeners shared that perspective. Like any great artist, Browne articulated the tenor of his times. But the album has long since come to seem a timeless collection of reflective ballads touching on still-difficult subjects -- suicide (explicitly), depression and drug use (probably), spiritual uncertainty and desperate hope -- all in calm, reasoned tones, and all with an amazingly eloquent sense of language. Jackson Browne's greater triumph is that, having perfectly expressed its times, it transcended those times as well. (The album features a cover depicting Browne's face on a water bag -- an appropriate reference to its desert/water imagery -- containing the words "saturate before using." Inevitably, many people began to refer to the self-titled album by that phrase, and when it was released on CD, it nearly became official -- both the disc and the spine of the jewel box read Saturate Before Using.)" (William Ruhlmann, AMG)

Jackson's career began in the mid-60s in Los Angeles and Orange County folk clubs. Except for a brief period in NYC in the late 1960s, he has always lived in Southern California. His debut album came out on David Geffen's Asylum Records in 1972. Since then, he has released thirteen studio albums and three collections of live performances; his most recent, Love Is Strange, features David Lindley.

Beyond his music, Browne is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights, and arts education. He's a co-founder of the groups Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE), Nukefree.org, and the Success Through the Arts Foundation, which provides education opportunities for students in South Los Angeles.

In 2002, he was the fourth recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, given to artists whose works exemplify the environmental and social values that were essential to the great California-born author. He has received Duke University’s LEAF award for Lifetime Environmental Achievement in the Fine Arts, and both the Chapin-World Hunger Year and NARM Harry Chapin Humanitarian Awards.
