*Various tracks were shortened using CD Wave Editor. Some were combined using WAV Joiner Trial Edition. Then, Audacity was used to fade in and fade out on certain tracks as well as to normalize the sound for all tracks. Tracks 12 and 21 were
also corrected (minus 4%) for pitch with Audacity.

This is the seventh volume in a series which looks back at Jackson Browne's commercial albums by incorporating on-stage stories and radio interviews concerning the albums and their songs with selected live performances of each song in the original order from the album. In addition to the initial trip through the album, this volume includes alternate performances of 3 of the songs.

Lawyers in Love was Jackson Browne's fourth straight Top 10 album, peaking at #8 and staying on the charts for 33 weeks. The single "Lawyers in Love" went to #13, "Tender Is the Night" went to #25, and "For a Rocker" peaked at #45.

Jackson seldom spoke about the album and has offered insight on only 4 of the songs during concert appearances and radio interviews. "Knock on Any Door" was performed a few times on Jackson's 1982 European Tour--before the album was released--but never again, not even during Jackson's 1983 Lawyers in Love Tour for the album. "On the Day" and "Cut It Away" have not been performed since that 1983 Lawyers in Love Tour. Jackson continued to play "Downtown" from time to time during the 1986 Lives in the Balance Tour but has not performed it since. "Tender Is the Night" has remained somewhat of a staple, performed both acoustically and with the band on various tours, and "For a Rocker" has been used to close some band concerts in the 1990s and 2000s. Interestingly, Jackson has apparently performed "Lawyers in Love" only a single time--acoustically in Stockholm in 2003--since the 1980s.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: The intent of these volumes is to introduce you to Jackson Browne's albums or to renew your appreciation of them. All of Jackson's albums are still available, and hopefully if you don't have all of them or need new copies, this will encourage you to purchase them. They are available at Jackson's own web site (www.jacksonbrowne.com) and at Amazon.com.
