1996 Jackson Browne – Looking East

Looking East is the eleventh album by American singer-songwriter Jackson Browne, released in 1996. It peaked at number 36 on The Billboard 200.

Coming over two years after his successful I’m Alive, Browne returned to more politically and socially oriented themes on Looking East. Only two songs are credited to Browne alone as composer, the rest co-credited with his core backing band.

Guests include Bonnie Raitt, David Crosby, Vonda Shepard, Ry Cooder, Waddy Wachtel and David Lindley.
