two great albums! I actually would rank Hold Out a bit higher than Running On Empty
It would be hard choice- I like them both also. I would probably lean a little more to Running On Empty just because I like David Lindley's lap steel playing on it. But tomorrow I might say Hold Out. It is really close.
agree, I'm pretty sure I would be in the minority on these two. but that's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL
