Hollywood Town Hall is a 1992 album by country rock revivalists, The Jayhawks. It peaked at #11 on the Billboard Heatseekers and #192 on the Billboard 200. The cover art for the album was shot in Hollywood Township, Carver County, Minnesota.
Hollywood Town Hall found a finely balanced point -- accessible enough for should-have-been success but bowing to no trends. Olson and Louris' great harmonies are the core of things, giving songs like "Crowded in the Wings" and "Settled Down Like Rain" a high-and-lonesome sparkle. The Jayhawks emerged on the music scene in the mid-'80s and have influenced many bands like Uncle Tupelo, and The Honeydogs.
Hollywood Town Hall was the Jayhawks' 1992 breakthrough and includes the classics "Waiting for the Sun," "Two Angels," and "Settled Down Like Rain."
