Oh, to have been a fly getting high on the wall of JD Souther's LA pad in the late '60s. His roomie was Glenn Frey, and his neighbor was Jackson Browne, and the tunes that fermented there would become the sweet wine of California country rock. Souther's co-writes for the Eagles — "Best of My Love" and "New Kid in Town" — had a dreamy sheen and unabashed sentimentality that, like his biggest solo hit "You're Only Lonely," sounded great on early FM radio. Blame him for soft rock if you must, but just try to resist humming along.

What to Expect: There's no better tour guide to the SoCal scene of the '70s, so bet on Souther to cover all the hits, just as he did on last year's revisionist album Natural History.
