Jackson Browne: A Once and Future Fan's Notes

Bud Scoppa, Paste, 1 June 2004

ON THE OCCASION of Jackson Browne's 2004 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Rhino Records has assembled The Very Best of Jackson Browne, a two-disc, 32-track retrospective spanning the years 1972 to 2002. The release of the set inspired veteran rock writer Bud Scoppa, who'd championed Browne early on, to reflect on how Browne's music has connected with his own life experiences.
