"Newly remastered from the original analog tapes onto RTI HQ-180 vinyl, Sweet Baby James is nothing short of sensational." - Neil Gader, TAS January 2008

"Taylor's second album landed him on the cover of Time magazine and secured his place as the patriarch of the 1970s singer-songwriter scene. But he went through a private hell on his way to success; the album's Top Five hit "Fire and Rain" was inspired by Taylor's stay in a psychiatric institution in the mid-1960s (he had committed himself) and the suicide of a fellow patient. Taylor set a new standard for confession in pop lyrics on "Fire and Rain." But it is the quiet strength in his voice, framed by the skeletal grace of Peter Asher's production, that still makes this album a model of folk-pop healing music." - www.rollingstone.com

"Taylor wrote the three verses of this song ["Fire And Rain"] in three phases following the breakup of his band the Flying Machine. The first came in a London flat while he was signed to the Apple label, the second in a New York hospital as he kicked heroin and the third during a stay in a Massachusetts psychiatric facility. 'It's like three samplings of what I went through,' he said." - Rolling Stone
