When James Taylor releases an album, it is always a much welcomed event to his millions of fans around the globe. This superstar singer/songwriter/guitarist is undoubtedly one of Americas most important contributors ever to popular music.
After a major run of hit recordings with Apple and Warner Bros. Records throughout most of the 70s, James Taylor signed with Columbia Records and began even more decades of gold and platinum successes which have forever stood the test of time. His 1988 platinum achievement Never Die Young continued his winning streak.
Filled with a number of hit singles and definitive album tracks, this masterwork LP kicks off with the smash title track Never Die Young. After the first few seconds of his signature guitar riffs and original lyric and vocal delivery, you know you are in for an unmistakable James Taylor musical journey.
More hit sounds abound as his soulful voice and stunning guitar belt out memorable Taylor favorites like Baby Boom Baby, the country rock feel of Runaway Boy, as well as the uplifting funk of Sweet Potato Pie.
The album continues its brilliance with one of his most interesting and clever compositions yet with his love ballad Valentines Day.
More introspective James Taylor is found on favorites Home by Another Way and Letter in the Mail, which echo the brilliance of how James Taylor just reaches millions with his stellar voice and music.
As a fine closer to this LP, the rhythm and emotion of First of May truly captivate the fans into yearning more and more listens of this powerful album.
