SBRR likes Running On Empty

The blog Stocks, Bonds, and Rock & Roll thinks back on Jackson Browne’s Running On Empty.

Released in 1977 and easily Browne’s most successful record in terms of sales, Running on Empty is a travelogue, recorded by, of, and for the road in concert halls, hotel rooms, and on tour buses.  It sounds lonely and achey like an album born under such conditions should.  Melancholy pianos set a persistent tone, driven home by echoes that betray the stillness of rooms both empty and full, and the loneliness that can accompany each.
