James Taylor's first album as a solo performer showcases a massive song-writing talent and a beautiful voice. Neither wonder the Beatles signed him to Apple this is one of the best debut albums of all time and it has showed his songs can pass the test of time. It also contains the song which was said to inspire George Harrison to write Something from the Beatles Abbey Road album.
If you like singer/songwriters then this album will not disappoint, if you don't but have an open mind then give James Taylor a try, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Great songs all the way, with four bonus tracks which include an acoustic demo version of 'Carolina in my Mind' which, to my mind, is superior to the over-produced version which made it onto the album. The three other bonus tracks are superfluous, really, especially the demo of 'Let Me Ride' (what IS that sound that repeats throughout in the background? Awful!). Favourite is 'Something in the Way She Moves', although why the clumsy title? Was it borrowed from the Beatles, or did it inspire them? Either way, why not just call it 'I Feel Fine' or 'Around Me Now?' Ah well, it's long been a favourite and am glad to at last have it in my collection. Small gripe: can't cue this up without the snatch of mad Gothic sitar that precedes it, which is bothersome. Stop moaning, woman, this is an excellent album that still sounds great 40 odd (some very odd) years on.

Format: Audio CD
In 2008 I reviewed a reissue CD on Rhino called "The Circle Game" by American singer-songwriter-catalyst TOM RUSH. The original LP was issued in the USA on Elektra Records in 1968 and apart from two original compositions from Rush, the album subsequently became famous for introducing 3 new writers and their extraordinary songs to the world - Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor (yes - all 3 on the same album). Bolstered by his need to capitalize on this modest success, Taylor arrived in London in March 1968, was signed to The Beatles Apple label within weeks, recorded his songs between June and October and then saw his own debut LP released in December of that fateful year. This CD is an expanded reissue of that album - one of 14 Apple Label albums remastered and reissued on 25 October 2010.

Apple 5099990581120 breaks down as follows (51:09 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 12 are the LP "James Taylor" released 6 December 1968 in the UK on Apple APCOR 3 (Mono)/SAPCOR 3 (Stereo) and on Apple SKAO-3352 in early 1969 in the USA (STEREO Mix Used on the CD).

Tracks 13 to 16 are FOUR PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED DEMOS - bonus tracks new to this 2010 issue (there were none on the 1991 reissue):
"Sunny Skies" and "Let Me Ride" were recorded in Los Angeles in early 1969 with Danny Kortchmar on Guitars, Charlie Larkey on Bass and Bishop O'Brien on Drums.

"Sunshine Sunshine" and "Carolina In My Mind" were recorded in London in the Summer of 1968 as MONO Solo Acoustic Demos.

"Sunshine Sunshine" was one of the tracks that appeared on the Tom Rush album - "Something In The Way She Moves" was the other.

Like many, I have been a James Taylor fan since the late 60's. I spotted this 2010 Apple records issue and got it this week..Dec 2010. It consists of previous tracks -but remastered...I find it sublime and am actually listening to it as I write this review. Go and check out its 16 tracks. If you like JT and have not got this..you won't be disappointed. Superb and chilled! Thanks James for beautiful music..I think I'll stop there!
