Solo Acoustic Vol 1 is a live album by Jackson Browne featuring him playing his songs solo with an acoustic guitar and a piano. It was recorded in 2005.
When I was a student in the late 1970s, I used to play his album The Pretender when I was feeling down. It helped a lot to lift my mood.
It was such a success that a few years later, he followed it up with Solo Acoustic Vol 2.
