Album of the Day
Running on Empty (Remastered)
Jackson Browne went on tour in 1977 with a remarkable group of musicians to create an album about the road, on the road; the result was RUNNING ON EMPTY, an album that is as brutally honest as it is achingly beautiful. Browne and his band (guitarist Danny Kortchmar; David Lindley on fiddle and lap steel guitar; keyboardist Craig Doerge; bassist Leland Sklar; drummer Russ Kunkel; and background vocalists Doug Haywood and Rosemary Butler) took an unconventional and, profoundly innovative approach to recording these 10 songs, opting for such natural settings as a Holiday Inn hotel room, a backstage rehearsal space and a tour bus as well as concert stages. Browne's biggest-selling album, the collection peaked at #3 on the Billboard chart and has been certified 7x Platinum by the RIAA. Released last month on CD and 180-gram vinyl, a new version of RUNNING ON EMPTY features meticulously remastered sound and a faithful reproduction of the original artwork.
