Warren Zevon (1976)

 

Perfect.

Absolutely. That is a perfect album. And so, in my opinion, was "Excitable Boy." He did some great work later--including songs from his gallant and heartbreaking final album, and of course Mutineer--but nothing touched the perfection of these two.

Perfect.

 

The songs are flawless and I love Zevon's voice and delivery, but the production is very 1970's and has Jackson Browne's heavy hand all over it.

Always a bad thing. Most overrated musician ever.

 

 

Wrong, wrong, and SO wrong.

 

Yes, everyone knows that Kanye West is the most overrated.

 

 

Glad to see some love for Warren, one of the most underrated musicians ever. His self-titled release is in my top 20 or 30 favourite records ever and Excitable Boy is right up there too.

Just to be clear, I was referring to Jackson Browne. I have no problem with Warren.

 

On second thought, maybe he's not overrated, per se. Maybe I should have said "Of all the respected music artists, Jackson Browne is the shittiest."

We'll just have to agree to disagree.

 

Vehemently.

:lol

 

Fair enough. I've given him a few chances. He failed. I like some of the cover versions I've heard of These Days. I'll give him that one.

 

I have no problem with JB. What I have a problem with is his sound running rampant all over Warren's lovely songs. The California Folk Rock Mafia was not a good fit for Warren. But the majesty of his songs stand the test of time.

I enjoy several of Jackson Browne's records, and think he's a respectable guitarist, a talent which comes through in his live, solo acoustic recordings. The one time I saw him live, however, was one of THE worst concerts I've ever been to. But his slide playing in the solo take of "Your Bright Baby Blues" is enough to make me happy.

I see what your saying, but that album would not even exist without Jackson Browne. At the time, Warren was living in Spain playing at bars with no intention of returning when JB convinced him to come back and record it.

 

In my opinion, the production is great. Have you heard Warren's first album? The songs are good, but the production is seriously lacking. I think Warren needed someone like Jackson to give him direction in the studio, especially because he was a raging belligerent drunk at the time...
