Another Amazing Song by Jackson | Reviewer: TexCube | 9/5/14
As many of you know, this is not a new song but it has been recorded for Jackson Browne's new album coming out in October of 2014. I could write for hours and be very long winded about his gift for lyrics but it's already been explained in great detail. Do a search for Jackson Browne's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and listen to what Bruce Springsteen says about him and his writing. It's the best way to explain why The Birds of St Marks is such an amazing song.
Two Versions | Reviewer: Mike Lewis | 8/24/09
Hi. This was originally recorded on an album of demos in 1971 called The Criterion Demos with just Jackson's acoustic guitar as backing. The album has been bootlegged but not officially released (as far as I know).
Beautiful | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/4/08
I have been a huge Jackson fan since I was a teanager, some 30 years now and I have to say although I prefer the old classics, he has outdone himself with this song, the lyrics as well as the melody are, to put it simply, beautiful!
Ethereal Perfection, possibly his best. | Reviewer: sally
This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, but it is severely marred by the obnoxious crowd noise. Is anyone aware of another version that is clean? Please email me, it is to be used for an important occasion. Thanks.
