I just got back from a stunning, outdoor Jackson Browne concert. My hands-down (or should I say Hands-Up?) favorite song was his encore–a remix of “I Am A Patriot” with “It’s Your Thing”. I thought it was a brand new song, titled “Liberal for the Righteous,” but he actually released the original version in 1989. The version I heard tonight is different even from the YouTube versions. I hope he re-releases a concert version.
Another song that shook up this Florida audience was “Going Down to Cuba.” Man, Browne has guts. I loved the song, but basically it was a protest against restraints on American freedoms. This comes from his latest album–I urge you to play it.
