I know I’m getting old. The other day (as in very recently, a matter of weeks ago) I bought a brand new JD Souther CD. I have never owned anything by JD Souther (save for some Eagles compilations that feature some of his songs). I still don’t know why I bought that new JD Souther album but I kinda like it. A guy told me that the new J Mascis album was “like Dinosaur Jr for old people”. SOLD! He had me at old people. I have been playing loads of James Taylor records. And I always loved Running On Empty but thought that was allowed, since it was part-live album, part-concept album. It was acceptable to own and play that – for research/reference. Right? Right? But lately I’ve been looking through my record shelves for more Jackson Browne (you know save for some Eagles compilations that feature some of his songs or whatever). And I’ve found some. I am not going to fight this. Why should I? I’m going to sit back and enjoy it. My favourite albums of the last week are allowed to be both Lykke Li’s Wounded Rhymes and Jackson Browne’s The Pretender, right? Right? Well that’s how it is this week. (And lately).
