iTunes Review

This is one of those dream-team combos: Carole King and James Taylor, two heavyweights of the early-‘70s singer-songwriter era reunited at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, where so many singer-songwriters got their start, with a sterling backup band featuring guitarist Danny Kortchmar, bassist Leland Sklar and drummer Russ Kunkel. Throw in all the major hits from each artist, from Taylor’s “Carolina In My Mind,” “Fire and Rain” and “Sweet Baby James” to King’s “So Far Away,” “It’s Too Late” and “I Feel the Earth Move” and you’ve got a high watermark accomplishment. This 2007 performance is top-notch throughout. Taylor and King both sing with an expressiveness that never sounds as if they might be the slightest bit tired of performing these songs after all these years. It helps that the band kicks up the perfect accompaniments, supporting the songs with a sweet purr throughout. By the time you get to the King-penned “You’ve Got a Friend,” it’s only a question as to who should take the lead vocal. (They harmonize to perfection.) For fans of either artist, this will surely satisfy.

Live At The Troubador

Truly fabulous, especially in contrast with what the guardians of our contemporary Pop Culture force upon us. Download and listen to it up on the roof.

Carol King & James Taylor Live at the Trubador

Excelent album (whatever) like I haven't heard in a long time. It brings back a better time in life than we have now! 5 stars not many get that rating from me!


On the CD they placed the spoken introductions to songs at the end of the previous track rather than the beginning of a track. The itunes version does not list individual tracks for song introductions so I can only assume that it is the same. Beware before you buy individual tracks that they will end with the introduction to the next song. Quite irritating if you only want to download a handful of songs.

While the landmark Tapestry album earned her superstar status, singer/songwriter Carole King had already firmly established herself as one of pop music's most gifted and successful composers, with work recorded by everyone from the Beatles to Aretha Franklin. Born Carole Klein on February 9, 1942 in Brooklyn, New York, she began playing piano at the age of four, and formed her first band, the vocal quartet the Co-Sines, while in high school. A devotee of the composing team of Jerry Lieber and Mike...
