Wow, thanks for the fantastic review Soda - it sounds like a really special night. I would have loved to have been there.

That's awesome that he did Talking To The Moon. What a treat!

His handwriting is little more than a scrawl, but I think he wrote "Best Wishes, JD Souther." lol He signed his new CD for me, too, and personalized it "To Nancy." I love that!
I am so glad to hear that!!! Now it is complete!!!! I was thinking about you last night and wondering if you would get to actually meet with him and get him to do it!! That is such a special album now. Will you get it framed?

I'm so glad you enjoyed the show and now have both signatures on your album--quite a feat!
And I can't believe he sang Talking to the Moon--I forgot Don collaborated with JD on that one! That must have been amazing.

Wow, Soda. Glad you had such a great time. That is quite a thing to have both signatures on the album! I had never heard any of JD's recordings before I started following The Border, but I am glad that I have been introduced to him as a singer & not just as a co-writer of Eagles songs. I very much enjoy listening to his voice.

Wow, Soda, that's terrific about getting to meet JD and getting his signature on your album. How cool to chat about Glenn and Taylor as well. It sounds as if it was a great evening, and thanks for your review.

Wow Nanc - That is fantastic that you were able to get J.D.'s autograph on that album. I am going to go out on a limb and say there aren't too many of them around and the few that do exist were probably signed years ago. This is a rare collector's item that you definitely want to preserve. You need to take a picture of it to show Glenn at Pebble Beach if he plays in February.

Glad you enjoyed the show. I would like to see him play as well, but right now he isn't scheduled to play anywhere near my home town.

Tunes for all tastes

By JONATHAN TAKIFF
Philadelphia Daily News

Rock, soul, jazz and classical are all well-represented with new CD releases this week.
OLD KID IN TOWN: Where's J.D. Souther been the last two decades? In Nashville, living off his songwriting royalties. (Yeah, all those Eagles' covers made him rich.)
Good news is that the guy's comeback, "If The World Was You" (MRI Associated, A-), is a near-perfect project, re-establishing where much of the Southern California country-rock-noir movement came from and how good that genre can still be.
Souther still sounds a lot like old playmate Glenn Frey after a hard night of carousing, with muted horn and piano-vamping arrangements that evoke jazz classics like "All Blues" and another Souther contemporary, Tom Waits.
Several tunes are stamped with his sultry, south-of-the-border rhythms and streetwise lyrics, like "Come On Up," wherein he reminds, "People tell you anything you want to hear/ The truth is always whispering in your ear." Also juicy are his biting appraisals of egotistical women ("A Chorus of Your Own"), his metaphoric example of a life spoiled by self-indulgence ("House of Pride") and well-turned declaration of love eternal, "I'll Be Here at Closing Time."
