Without the songwriting talent of John David Souther, The Eagles aren't really The Eagles. JD Souther has cowritten some incredible great hits for The Eagles: "New Kid in Town", "Best of My Love", "Heartache Tonight", "Victim of Love" among others and "How Long" the first single from The Eagles new album "Long Road Out Of Eden". John David Souther is one of the great guys in Classic Rock.
On October 15, 2007, Salvo Records UK has released a 18 tracks CD from John David Souther: "Border Town: The Very Best of J.D. Souther" on which you can find two lovely duets with longtime friend Linda Ronstadt : "Say You Will" and "If You Have Crying Eyes". Also in this Best Of CD, the original version of "How Long".
During his surprising tour in UK in September and October 2007, John David Souther sold a 1000 EP limited edition CD of 4 tracks: "Possible Weather" (JWD Music) in a Blues / Jazz vein:
In my arms tonight
One more night (killing spree)
The Border guard
Journey down the Nile Cool
Two of these tunes can be listened to on his MySpace official page.
Lastly, a very important piece of news: John David Souther now works on a new studio album, his first LP since "Home By Dawn" back in 1984!
