Our Review

At first glance, this isn’t the “Covers” album one might expect from a folk titan like James Taylor. Sure, he once scored a hit with an easy listening interpretation of Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You),” but to tackle Buddy Holly’s Bo Diddley-inspired “Not Fade Away,” Jr. Walker and the All-Stars’ “(I’m a) Road Runner,” Eddie Cochran’s rockabilly rumble “Summertime Blues” and George Jones’ honky-tonk standard “Why Baby Why”? Now that’s playing outside the box for Taylor for sure. He knows his limits, however, and doesn’t attempt to toughen up. Instead, he searches for the nuance, much like Lyle Lovett and his stylized approach, immersing himself in the melodic joys residing in these aggressive compositions. Taylor is in his most rewarding and comfortable territory when he jazzes up Jimmy Webb (and Glen Campbell’s) “Wichita Lineman,” emphasizes the romantic longing of the Drifters’ “On Broadway,” brings out the story-song behind John Williams’ “Seminole Wind” and retains the solemnity of Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne.” Still, it’s a kick to hear Taylor take a rip at “Hound Dog,” a song so far from his own comfort zone that he turns its raw blues into nightclub jazz.

Another great album from a master musician! (5 stars)
I have been watching & waiting for this new album, albiet not too patiently. Wichita Lineman is probably my favorite ~ I never thought I'd ever hear anyone do this song outside of Glen Campbell. I've been a fan of JT since "Handy Man" came out in the late 70's and this album proves that once again, JT has the unique ability to sing anything and everything and make it his own unique musical creation. As a vocalist & fello

Really Nice Release from James Taylor (5 stars)
James Taylor really delivers in this fine release that is well produced and incredibly easy on the ears. Taylor's version of "Sadie" is an absolute delight. His take on "Wichita Lineman" adds even more layers than the original, and "On Broadway" and "Not Fade Away" are also standouts. JT remains in his prime...and he probably always will. An artist and a workman in every sense of the word. Well done, J

welcome back friend (4 stars)
Like a return of an old friend from chilhood, happened to be browsing through and just found this new release from J.T. sounding the same as i remember.

Biography

Born: March 12, 1948 in Belmont, MA
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

When people use the term "singer/songwriter" (often modified by the word "sensitive") in praise or in criticism, they're thinking of James Taylor. In the early '70s, when he appeared with his introspective songs, acoustic guitar, and calm, understated singing style, he mirrored a generation's emotional exhaustion after tumultuous times. Just as Bing Crosby's reassuring voice brought the country out of the Depression and through World War II, Taylor's eased the transition from '60s activism and its...
