Jackson Browne - Jabberwocky Club 1971

This is Jackson Browne live in concert a year before he released his debut solo album.

Prior to this Jackson Browne had already written songs for, (and recorded by) Nico, The Byrds, Bonnie Raitt, and The Eagles (with whom he later co-wrote 'Desperado' and 'Doolin' Dalton').

Tracing the roots of Jackson Browne's career leads back to the mid 1960's and Los Angeles and Orange County folk clubs.

Born in Germany to American parents, Jackson's family returned to Los Angeles when he was three. Except for a brief period in NYC in the late 1960's, when he was an integral presence in the coffeehouse scene there, he has always lived in Southern California.

This then is Jackson Browne solo and playing guitar and piano, live at the Jabberwocky Club (a small, 200 seat nightclub), at Syracuse University, New York, USA, back on the 27th, March, 1971.

This is the first known recorded live show of Jackson Browne.

Comments: This recording may not be exclusive to this site, however it remains quite rare, especially considering this versions quality.

His debut album, came out a year later on David Geffen's Asylum Records in 1972. Rolling Stone wrote in its original review that, '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'.

Material performed on this recording later appeared on his first two albums, some of the songs were never formally released.

I've already got this, cobbled together from two sources, but it's a real favorite, so I'm always interested in an upgrade. I'm currently enjoying his old compadre Greg Copeland's new CD Diana and James. His second release in only 27 years!! Thanks again for this...

Uh, at risk of coming across as a know-it-all, I think there are more songs here that were never on a Browne album, namely
Mae Jean Goes To Hollywood
Jesus In 3/4 Time
Someday Morning
Shadow Dream Song
Under The Falling Sky is the title of track 02. Thanks once more!

Nice post wherever it came from. My live Jackson Browne stuff is so full of curse words, it's difficult to listen to you. The Beehive is warming up with all these great concerts. thanks

Very very special this is. I simply love jackson. He is my favourite living singer-songwriter. And this show which i have the luck to have it about a year or so is a preview of all his later so great albums.
Thanks once more.

This is another of those FlameUpload shows that goes nowhere. Hope it is salvageable somehow. / Another show, not here, which has been lost is his 1975 show at Tulane University, a great Brown / Lindley show with his early band.
