Info for Late For The Sky (Remastered 40th Anniversary Edition)
When discussing singer-songwriters who started their careers in full creative bloom and stayed the course for several albums, you can’t chat about the ‘70s without citing Jackson Browne, but while his self-titled debut in 1972 was outstanding and 1973’s For Everyman can in no way be viewed as a sophomore slump, it’s often been said – and it’s not hard to understand why – that it’s Browne’s third album, 1974’s Late for the Sky, where he first truly soars.
With cover art inspired by René Magritte’s painting 'L'Empire des Lumieres,” Late for the Sky may not have earned Browne any traction on the Billboard Hot 100 – neither “Walking Slow” nor “Fountain of Sorrow,” the two songs released as singles, even so much as charted – but when Bruce Springsteen calls an album your masterpiece, Martin Scorsese borrows its title track for use in Taxi Driver, and Rolling Stone includes it on one of their lists of the 500 greatest albums of all time…well, all we’re saying is that Browne probably hasn’t been bothered by Late for the Sky’s lack of hit singles in many moons, if he ever was to begin with.
In conjunction with its 40th anniversary, we’ve put together a new digital reissue of Late for the Sky for you, and we’re hoping you find that it sounds better than ever. At the very least, we know it’s aged well musically, but from a sonic standpoint, it’s crisp, clean, and ready for your ears to savor all over again.
„Possibly the best thing this long time successful writer and, over the past few years, successful singer has come up with. The lyrics are meaningful and come as close to poetry as anyone else making music today. This album really transcends any categorization, which is one of the highest compliments that can be paid an artist.“ (Billboard)

has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music and has defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics. He was honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, and the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2007.
Jackson's career began in the mid-60s in Los Angeles and Orange County folk clubs. Except for a brief period in NYC in the late 1960s, he has always lived in Southern California. His debut album came out on David Geffen's Asylum Records in 1972. Since then, he has released thirteen studio albums and three collections of live performances; his most recent, Love Is Strange, features David Lindley.
Beyond his music, Browne is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights, and arts education. He's a co-founder of the groups Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE), Nukefree.org, and the Success Through the Arts Foundation, which provides education opportunities for students in South Los Angeles.
In 2002, he was the fourth recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, given to artists whose works exemplify the environmental and social values that were essential to the great California-born author. He has received Duke University’s LEAF award for Lifetime Environmental Achievement in the Fine Arts, and both the Chapin-World Hunger Year and NARM Harry Chapin Humanitarian Awards. In 2004, Jackson was given an honorary Doctorate of Music by Occidental College in Los Angeles, for "a remarkable musical career that has successfully combined an intensely personal artistry with a broader vision of social justice."
