So I just go on and on about the music. Really, it permeates everything having to do with 1972. Here are two wonderful, witty and wry dudes that touched my soul. I still listen to these songs and think Glory to the Day by Jesse Winchester might be one of my top ten essential singer-songwriter-y songs. Jesse was off in Canada because of the war, and Jackson Browne was just arriving on the scene. If you will indulge me here, I will later submit a blog to the lady songwriters whom I must salute and thank for inspiring me to write songs. And I will come back to Jesse Colin Young. But first accolades to these princes...

Thank you both for sharing the love!

  1. Love Jackson Browne. One of my favorite lyrics is "Gonna be a happy idiot and struggle for the legal tender." It was how I felt being in the Air Force during my "wanna be a hippie" period of the late 60s and early 70s. Just saw Jackson Browne July 22nd at Wolf Trap. Last time I had seen him was at a concert in 1978 or 79. It was at Merriwweather Post Pavilian.
