Souther, Dan Fogelberg (background vocals). Jackson Browne's early career was inextricably linked to the singer-songwriter movement of the 70s, and LATE FOR THE SKY has proven to be one of the era's strongest and most enduring releases. Browne's reflective songwriting style attained a new level of maturity on songs such as "Fountain Of Sorrow" and "For A Dancer," the latter a strikingly literate meditation on death. The high points on LATE FOR THE SKY are the title track and "Before the Deluge," two brooding songs of personal and social apocalypse that bookend the album and seem to reflect the disillusionment and weather-beaten mood of the counter-cultural generation in the early '70s. The balance between Browne's gentle, emotive voice and the tasteful arrangements perfectly matches the incisive quality of the songwriting, making LATE FOR THE SKY one of Browne's strongest, and most consistent albums.

      I haven't been able to locate this title in my local music store so I was thrilled to see it on "O". This is one of the best Jackson Browne titles. It evokes memories of period of introspection in our lives. Thanks for having it available.
