Jackson Browne at Ravinia
Posted:Thursday, 06/27/2013 at 02:06am by Greg Easterling
The Drive welcomes Jackson Browne to Ravinia Weds. night, always a special evening to have one of our premier singer-songwriters in town.

Yesterday morning we had his 1983 release, Lawyers In Love, an album that found Jackson at his most rockin' and the same time, most pop. The times were indeed changing in the Eighties, especially for established Seventies artists and many found it necessary to change their approach to continue their careers. Browne wasn't immune to this but still brought a high level of craft to his more pop oriented efforts. We listened to Side 2; highlights included "Tender Is The Night" and "For A Rocker".
