Album Review

Taylor's third recording for Capricorn was remastered and reissued in 1999. Though he began his career before brother James, and curtailed it early due to a psychiatric disorder, Livingston was obviously never as successful as his brother. It's hard to figure; his clear tenor is almost indistinguishable from his brother's, and even song structures which shift from the sprite ("Pretty Woman") to sweet melancholy ("I Can Dream of You,") could be from his brother's pen. Yet, like his other brother, Alex, his strongest suit may have been in his vocal interpretations of others' songs. Before Willie Nelson made "Somewhere over the Rainbow" his own, Taylor turned in an inspired vocal version (though the cheesy organ accompaniment isn't all it could be). And he does a completely unique take on George Harrison's "If I Needed Someone," essential for anyone into Beatles covers.
