Reseña de álbum

On his last couple of Warner Bros albums, Gorilla and In the Pocket, James Taylor seemed to be converting himself from the shrinking violet, too-sensitive-to-live "rainy day man" of his early records into a mainstream, easy listening crooner with a sunny outlook. JT, his debut album for Columbia, was something of a defense of this conversion. Returning to the autobiographical, Taylor declared his love for Carly Simon ("There We Are"), but expressed some surprise at his domestic bliss. "Isn't it amazing a man like me can feel this way?" he sang in the opening song, "Your Smiling Face" (a Top 40 hit). At the same time, domesticity could have its temporary depressions ("Another Grey Morning"). The key track was "Secret O' Life," which Taylor revealed as "enjoying the passage of time." Working with his long-time backup band of Danny Kortchmar, Leland Sklar, and Russell Kunkel, and with Peter Asher back in the producer's chair, Taylor also enjoyed mixing his patented acoustic guitar-based folk sound with elements of rock, blues, and country. He even made the country charts briefly with "Bartender's Blues," a genre exercise complete with steel guitar and references to "honky tonk angels" that he would later re-record with George Jones. The album's Top Ten hit was Taylor's winning remake of Jimmy Jones' "Handy Man," which replaced the grit of the original with his characteristic warmth. JT was James Taylor's best album since Mud Slide Slim & the Blue Horizon because it acknowledged the darkness of his earlier work while explaining the deliberate lightness of his current viewpoint, and because it was his most consistent collection in years. Fans responded: JT sold better than any Taylor album since Sweet Baby James.

As classic as it gets

There are few albums I've listened to more than this seminal work by my favorite artist. James Taylor defined an era for me, and defined what it meant to be a singer-songwriter. James has aged well, and so has his music. If you don't recognize these songs (perhaps because you're younger) you will recognize the names of those he's influenced. This album was released during a good period in James Taylor's life. It was rocky before, and it would get rocky again. This snapshot feels "frozen in time" during a surprisingly blissful period. I am reminded of these songs when I am in a mood. There's a lot of emotion here. And I am inspired to express my artist's self when I listen in. Effortless and beautiful. Keeping it as simple as enjoying the passage of time...simple until you try and play this stuff on the guitar.

Every track's worthwhile.

Yup - - been listening to this album since it first came out and I still love it. Never tire of it. iTunes reviewers consistently bash James Taylor, but he's still got a lot of fans that enjoy his sound and his music. Keep 'em comin', JT!


Funny thing is, my family has this RECORD and we play it on a turntable, and seeing it on iTunes is just WEIRD. Excellent album. Period.

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...
