Star Maker Debuts: Danny O’Keefe

Danny O‘Keefe: The Road


I posted this song two years ago on my own blog, Oliver di Place, and it drew the most comments I think I have ever had. The Road is a song that seems to resonate with people. Most first heard it on Jackson Browne’s album Running on Empty, and they think Browne wrote it. But here is the original, by Danny O’Keefe. O’Keefe personally had his greatest success with Good Time Charlie’s Got the Blues, and Farewell to Storyville is another personal favorite. In short, O’Keefe is a wonderful songwriter, so if you like this, you will want to go deeper, and find more of the treasures in his songbook.
