Glenn Frey And J.D. Souther Collaboration Set For Reissue

Glenn Frey and JD Souther are teaming up for a reissue of their self-titled 1969 Longbranch/Pennywhistle album. The album, recorded before Frey co-founded the Eagles, will be pressed on compact disc for the first time, while the 180-gram vinyl will mark Longbranch/Pennywhistle’s first pressing since its release nearly 50 years ago. “Glenn Frey was my roommate, best friend, and first songwriting partner in Los Angeles,” Souther said in a statement. “We knew we were onto something original, as are most young musicians, including our soon-to-be friends and collaborators Jackson Browne and Don Henley; but quite honestly, we were just trying to do our best work in a very competitive environment. Glenn Frey touched so many people with his music, friendship, and wit. Honestly, it’s just a struggle to wrap my head around a world without him in it. Hearing our freshman effort together helps a little with that pain and, for all its imperfections, the spirit of what we were doing rings clear and true; two young songwriting partners in the early days of a satisfying and enduring collaboration.” The reissue of Longbranch/Pennywhistle will be released on September 28.
