Singer-songwriter JD Souther is probably best known for his well-honed writing abilities, especially in the field of country rock. He co-wrote some of the biggest hits for the Eagles, including Best Of My Love, Victim Of Love, Heartache Tonight, and New Kid in Town.
He wrote Run Like A Thief, which appeared on Home Plate by Bonnie Raitt in 1975. Souther dated Linda Ronstadt briefly, co-produced her Don’t Cry Now album, and wrote songs for several of her multi-platinum albums. (by wikipedia)
“Hanging out in the bar at the Troubadour with Glenn Frey and Jackson Browne and playing open mike Mondays, then opening for Poco and The Flying Burrito Brothers – it was the best study in songwriting I can imagine… It’s also where I met Linda Ronstadt and where Don Henley and Glenn Frey met to form this little country rock band called Eagles that would go on to make musical history.” (jdsouther.net)
And here´s a pretty good solo acoustic show.
Thanks to rzahakos for the CD rip; and to kingrue for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den.
Recorded live at Ebbets Field, Denver, Colorado; July 2, 1976.
Very good FM broadcast.
