A Jackson Browne Playlist

1209-DE-FFWG-01.jpg

He's the quintessential California bard—the laid-back, barefoot-in-denim troubadour of Laurel Canyon and the Los Angeles freeways—and for most of the Seventies Jackson Browne was at the twangy heart of a world-conquering West Coast rock scene that included the Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Randy Newman, and Tom Waits. Here are some of his high points:

1. "Running on Empty" (from Browne's 1977 album Running on Empty)

2. "These Days," written by Browne, performed by Nico (from the Teutonic songbird's 1967 album Chelsea Girl and the 2001 soundtrack to Wes Anderson's film The Royal Tenenbaums)

3. "Rock Me on the Water," written by Browne, performed by Linda Ronstadt (from the Arizona chanteuse's 1972 album, Linda Ronstadt)

4. "Desperados Under the Eaves," written and performed by Warren Zevon, and produced by Jackson Browne (from Zevon's 1976 album Warren Zevon)

5. "Linda Paloma" (from Browne's 1976 album The Pretender)

6. "Take It Easy," performed by the Eagles, cowritten by Glenn Frey and Jackson Browne (from the 1972 album Eagles)

7. "Sky Blue and Black" (from Browne's 1993 album I'm Alive)

8. "For a Dancer" (from Browne's 1974 album Late for the Sky)

9. "Lawyers, Guns and Money," written and performed by Warren Zevon, co-produced by Jackson Browne (from Zevon's 1978 album Excitable Boy)

10. "Something Fine" (from Browne's 2008 album Solo Acoustic, Vol. 2)

11. "Doctor My Eyes," performed by the Jackson Five (from the 1972 album Lookin' Through the Windows)

12. "The Load- Out"/"Stay" (from Browne's 1977 album Running on Empty)
