Our Review

Actually, it’s a two man band. This live collection was recorded at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, MA, July 2007, with keyboardist Larry Goldings joining Taylor for a pleasant and inspired evening of many well-known Taylor classics. “Something in the Way She Moves,” “You’ve Got a Friend,” “Sweet Baby James,” “Carolina In My Mind,” “Fire and Rain,” alongside later faves such as “Never Die Young” and “Copperline” show that Taylor has lost none of his vocal range while his ability to convey the same warm sincerity that catapulted him to fame in the early ‘70s as the prototypical sensitive singer-songwriter remains undiminished. His guitar picking is stellar throughout and Goldings’ piano flourishes are empathetic and never overpowering, though Taylor does allow Goldings a few fine displays (“The Frozen Man,” the jazz leanings of “Mean Old Man” and the instrumental “School”). In between song patter is quick, witty and never a hindrance. Only “Slap Leather” with its faux-funk breaks the mood. Taylor’s songs are amazingly resilient and though obviously he has sung these songs thousands of times, he still brings them to life with empathy and meaning.

AMAZING! This needs more than 5 stars. (5 stars)

Longtime James Taylor fans might be skeptical about buying yet another collection comprised mostly of Taylor's 'greatest hits.' After all, most of these songs are available on the 2-disc "Live" set as well as on 2 or 3 different concert DVDs already. But let me assure you, this set is worth every penny, no matter how many times you've heard these songs before or whether you already own them on another collection. On ONE MAN BAND, T

a plea for new material (3 stars)

James Taylor is by far my favorite singer/songwriter and performer. His catalogue is deep and rich, and his songs are models of craftsmanship, integrity, emotion and taste. He is an engaging and tireless performer and his concerts are top-notch. His appeal cuts across a wide demographic. But he is not a prolific songwriter, at least in terms of new material, with studio albums appearing approximately every 5 years. So, I have to admit a

Wow! (5 stars)

This is absolutely and utterly amazing. Taylor's voice is as fantastic as ever and we all know the songs are great! The recording of "Carolina In My Mind" gave me chills. I think any Taylor fan will appreciate this album.


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…
