JD Souther: Black Rose (Asylum)****

Barbara Charone, Sounds, 12 June 1976

THE FIRST time JD Souther toured America it was almost a disaster. Just like LA crony Jackson Browne, JD was microphone shy and mumbled his way through an erratic solo set. That was back in '72. Since then his diction has improved considerably.
