Reseña de álbum

James Taylor's first Greatest Hits album, released in 1976 and consisting of his well-known early '70s recordings on Warner Bros. and re-recordings of some of the songs from his 1968 Apple Records debut, is in the rarefied sales category of double-digit millions, so a second volume, taking in his tenure at Columbia Records, was a no-brainer. The only wonder is why it took so long. But the second part of Taylor's recording career has been different from his first, especially when it comes to hits. All of Taylor's Columbia albums have been good sellers, hitting gold or platinum sales. But he has scored only four Top 40 hits on the pop charts: "Handy Man" (his only Top Ten single on Columbia), "Your Smiling Face," "Up on the Roof," and "Her Town Too." It's a different story on the adult contemporary charts, where he has been a mainstay. But Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 is not so much a collection of Taylor's chart entries as it is a best-of. There are several tracks, among them "Secret O' Life," "Only a Dream in Rio," and "Song for You Far Away," that were never hits but have become audience favorites, frequently played in Taylor's concerts. And there are chart singles, notably "Only One," which got into the adult contemporary Top Ten, and "Hard Times" and "Honey Don't Leave L.A.," which made the pop charts, that have been omitted. That said, this is a well-balanced compilation that should please most of the singer/songwriter's fans and that serves as a good selection of his work, circa 1977-1997.

Classic JT

I agree with the previous review. If you get a chance, go see James Taylor in concert. Pure entertaining talent. Getting rare these days. FYI the Steam Roller cut offered here is not the version from the original album. This one is not nearly as good as the one on the original album.

feel good song

This is the perfect song to help get you out of the dumps. Plus the smooth, easy going voice of James Taylor. If you like his songs I recomend checking out some of David Gates (Bread) .

Real Talent. Real Music.

James Taylor is amazing. There is not a bad song on this album. One of the only real artists still around in a world of manufactured and over-marketed "music".

Cuando la gente usa el término "cantautor" (con frecuencia antecedido por el calificativo "sensible") como elogio o como crítica, está pensando en James Taylor. A comienzos de los ‘70, cuando éste apareció con sus canciones introspectivas, su guitarra acústica y su estilo de canto tranquilo, no hacía sino reflejar el hartazgo emocional de una generación frente a tiempos tumultuosos. Así como la voz confortante de Bing Crosby sacó al país, de la Depresión y de la segunda Guerra mundial, la voz de...
