Nashville 1978 [no label, 2CD]

Live in Nashville, TN; February 2, 1978. Good to very good soundboard. Some fans noted speed issues, dropouts, imbalance, distortion, etc. Have yet to come across a speed-corrected version.

While many consider Jackson Browne’s Late For The Sky (1974) to be his best and most influential album, it’s likely that Running On Empty, released on December 6, 1977, is his most popular. In August 2012, we shared Jackson Browne and David Lindley’s show in Columbia 1978 (click here); and here is a show barely two months after the album’s release.

Thanks to Michael Lombo for sharing the tracks at The Traders’ Den. Michael noted: “This is a nice complete show from the late ’70s. All the lap steel work by David Lindley is great… There is a small dropout on Take it Easy, whoever is running the board [is probably making] some adjustments.”

scottsays2 commented at Dime: “I believe this is a soundboard that was taken from a video feed. As I recall - this show was filmed, not sure whatever happened to the video, I’m sure it’s out there somewhere.”

  2. hey bigo, not really jackson browne related, but arthur doyle died today. he played with sun ra, thurston moore, rudolph grey, sonny murray, alan silva etc…. i saw arthur doyle play here at bottletree even before they were officially opened on 9.16.06. this was a sunday 5:00 pm early show. $10 was a good deal. i spent time talking to arthur, before the show. he was nice to me. i still have his autograph.

    do you know if there’s a show out there of his? if so, be nice if you could offer one. i have the show i was at on a cd-r. i’ll get it out and listen to it.

  5. theres a very nice nearly 90min clip of demos of jb from 1967 on youtube. prob the earliest item available of him anywhere. in fact i know of nearly nothing else from that year or any other year til 72. starting in 73 there is a huge amount of stuff surfacing. i found a few things from 71-72 on sugarmegs. 9 to be exact. but nothing prior other than the 67 item mentioned already. interesting that there isnt a single item from 68 69 or 70.

    btw.. sugarmegs lists this as 2-22-78. a full 20 days later than is listed here.
