Stay, The Loadout, Jackson Browne, Rayman’s Song Of The Day [VIDEO]

It was on this day in 1977 that Jackson Browne recorded “Stay” and “Running On Empty” live, in concert, in Columbia Maryland.

In many ways, Jackson Browne was the quintessential sensitive Californian singer/songwriter of the early ’70s.  While the majority of his classic ’70s work was personal, it nevertheless provided a touchstone for a generation of  baby boomers coming to terms with adulthood. Not only did his lyrics strike a nerve, but his laid-back folk-rock set the template for much of the music to come out of California during the ’70s.

Born in Heidelberg, West Germany, Jackson and his family moved to Los Angeles when he was three years old, and by the time he was a teenager, he had developed an interest in folk music. He began playing guitar and writing songs, which he sang at local folk clubs. Early in 1966, he was invited to join the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. While he was only with the band for a few months, the group recorded a handful of his songs on its first two records.

During the late ’70s and early ’80s, he was at the height of his popularity, as each of his albums charted in the Top Ten. Midway through the ’80s, Jackson made a series of political protest records that caused his audience to shrink, but when he returned to introspective songwriting in the 90′s, he made a modest comeback.
