You’re Only Lonely – J.D. Souther (1979)
This American singer-songwriter built a successful and distinguished career as a songwriter for others – particularly Linda Ronstadt & The Eagles – before scoring this hit of his own. Souther released another album in the early 80’s….and then disappeared from the music industry’s spotlight. His songwriting continued in the background, albeit at a slower pace than during the 70’s. Finally, in 2008, Souther returned as a performer with a new studio album. A collection of his biggest hits – both as songwriter & singer – followed in 2011. And his latest effort, a live album, came out last fall. Looks like he’s making up for lost time.
