Lives in the Balance is the eighth album by American singer/songwriter Jackson Browne, released in 1986.

The title track as well as "For America" and "In the Shape of a Heart" were released as singles. Lives in the Balance was the first album by Browne where overtly political and socially critical songs dominated (three of which were about president Ronald Reagan), although it also included one of his best remembered songs about relationships, the tragic "In the Shape of a Heart", inspired by his relationship with his first wife. The radio play garnered by "For America" and "In the Shape of a Heart", and the use of "Lives in the Balance" in the show Miami Vice, gained him many new fans who later went back and discovered Browne's earlier works.

AllMusic Review:
Usually among the most introspective of songwriters, Jackson Browne cast his gaze on the world outside on Lives in the Balance and did not like what he saw. Beginning with "For America," he lamented his previous indifference to social issues -- "I went on speaking of the future/While other people fought and bled" -- but immediately tried to make up for lost time.

The album's context, of course, was five years of Ronald Reagan's presidency, with what the Left saw as an indifference to the plight of the poor at home and a dangerously aggressive policy against insurgent movements in the Central American countries of El Salvador and Nicaragua they feared would lead to a Vietnam-like war. Without naming those places, Browne wrote and sang passionately against poverty in the songs "Soldier of Plenty" and "Lawless Avenues" and against war in "For America," "Lives in the Balance," and "Till I Go Down."

Elsewhere, his more familiar themes of romantic ("In the Shape of a Heart") and philosophical ("Black and White"); disillusionment also made appearances. But, from its hard rock sound and forceful singing to its frankly agit-prop lyrics, "For America" remained primarily a political statement, and if Browne sounded more involved in his music than he had in some time, the specificity of its approach inevitably limited its appeal and its long-term significance.
The album was ranked number 88 on Rolling Stone's list of the best 100 albums of the 1980s.

The 71-year-old singer has revealed to Rolling Stone that he recently tested positive for the coronavirus. Browne noted that he was recently in New York City for Love Rocks NYC benefit. The singer said he is feeling well and recuperating at home. "My symptoms are really pretty mild, so I don't require any kind of medication and certainly not hospitalization or anything like that," Browne said.

God; I had a cassette, back in the day. The hiss during the opening, of Funeral for a Friend; was louder than the wind sounds

I'll check my versions, when I get home. Of course, TIDAL has it in MQA; but I'm pretty sure, I have a 24/96 SACD...among others (maybe a Steve Hoffman/Kevin Gray remaster?)

Freddie King (1934-1976) is an album by Freddie King, released in 1977.

Freddie King (September 3, 1934 – December 28, 1976) was an American blues guitarist and singer. He recorded several hits for Federal Records in the early 1960s. His soulful and powerful voice and distinctive guitar style inspired many musicians, particularly guitarists.

In 1949, at the age of 15, his family moved from Dallas to the South Side of Chicago. Almost as soon as he had moved to Chicago, King started sneaking into South Side nightclubs, where he heard blues performed by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, T-Bone Walker, Elmore James, and Sonny Boy Williamson. As the 1950s progressed, King played with several of Muddy Waters's sidemen and other Chicago mainstays, including the guitarists Jimmy Rogers, Robert Lockwood Jr., Eddie Taylor, and Hound Dog Taylor; the bassist Willie Dixon; the pianist Memphis Slim; and the harmonicist Little Walter.

King was repeatedly rejected in auditions for Chess Records, the premier blues label, which was the home of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Little Walter. The complaint was that King sang too much like B.B. King.

He was one of the first bluesmen to have a multiracial backing band at live performances.

Nearly constant touring took its toll on King—he was on the road almost 300 days out of the year. In 1976 he began suffering from stomach ulcers. According to those who knew him, King's untimely death was due to stress, a legendary "hard-partying lifestyle", and poor diet. He was in the habit of consuming Bloody Marys rather than solid food so as not to waste time when setting up shows. His health quickly deteriorated, and he died on December 28 of acute pancreatitis, at the age of 42.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
