New live album on the way from Jackson Browne & David Lindley

You'll either wince or smile at the words "new live album" and "Jackson Browne" in the same sentence. For me personally, I'm happy that Jackson is starting to dig around in the vaults with some of his recent releases.

During an interview last week on Nicole Sandler's Radio or Not program, Browne revealed the news that he's currently finishing work on a double live album, recorded during a tour of Spain in 2006 with longtime collaborator David Lindley.  The album will see release in May as a prelude of sorts to a summer tour that will feature Lindley touring with Browne and his band.  (And Cleveland is finally going to be on that list of tour dates, right Jackson?  RIGHT?)

David and Jackson

I enjoyed the audio of Browne and Lindley from the 2006 edition of the Philly Folk Festival a lot more than the Solo Acoustic releases, so I'm really looking forward to hearing the Spain show.

Here's a link to the entire Browne interview on Radio or Not - for those of you that are not a fan of political discussion, the first 4 minutes of the interview focus on Browne's music, before the conversation turns to current events.  One of the interesting points that I enjoyed, was Browne's discussion of what he's doing to personally conserve energy at home, and you can hear that part of the discussion at 24:40.

I've been a fan of Nicole Sandler's work since her days at KSCA 101.9, and I'm glad to see her continuing to do her own thing with Radio or Not.

Jackson Browne fans lucky enough to be in Japan will have a chance to catch him co-headlining shows with Sheryl Crow in March.  Jealous.
