Album Cover

The Offender Meets the Pretender is a widely bootlegged Dutch radio program featuring songs by, and interviews with, Warren Zevon alongside his friend and colleague Jackson Browne. The recordings are from Zevon's first tour in 1977, shortly after the release of his second album, which included guest appearances in the middle of Jackson Browne's concerts. The Offender Meets the Pretender is a recording of one of theses appearances. Later when Jordan Zevon started allowing the release of old concert recordings online on the Internet Archive to be freely redistributed, these recordings were released.
