John David Souther

JD Souther Black Rose

Charity shop Oxfam have a keen eye on the collectors market and their prices reflect this; however, they do seem to have good stock and this gem turned up for £2.99, a bargain for a laid back listen!  JD first came to my attention when perusing song writing credits on Eagles albums, with the likes of ‘New Kid in Town’ & ‘Victim of Love’  from Hotel California and ‘Doolin-Dalton’ from Desperado.  If you have a copy of Desperado, am I correct in thinking JD is in the photo on the rear, on the far right of the roped up ‘desperados’?

I’m sure that I read somewhere, sometime, that JD spurned a place in the Eagles as he didn’t enjoy the limelight. His solo work is definitely worth a listen and Black Rose from 1976, on Asylum Records, is a fine place to start.
