Jackson Browne Plays Bluesfest March 27 2016

Jackson Browne has performed the first of his Australian shows for 2016 at Bluesfest in Byron Bay.

Browne featured three from his latest album (2014) ‘Standing In The Breach’ but it was the 1973 album ‘For Everyman’ that he went back to mostly through the show.

‘For Everyman’, Browne’s second album from 1973, was the album his version of ‘Take It Easy’ appeared on. Browne wrote the song just weeks before his debut album was released and he gave the song initially to his room-mate at the time, Glenn Frey, to use for his new band Eagles. Browne hadn’t finished the song so Frey completed it added the lines ‘It’s a girl, my lord, in a Flatbed Ford, slowin’ down to take a look at me’.

Jackson told Noise11 this week that the original incident for the song actually happened in Flagstaff, Arizona, not Winslow, Arizona, the truck was actually a Datsun, not a Ford and that he was looking at the girl, she wasn’t looking at him.

You can hear the Jackson Browne interview this week at Noise11 iHeartRadio.
