Product Description

Live At The Troubadour is a CD and DVD package presenting the momentous reunion between two of America’s greatest songwriters. As the 1970’s dawned, American music moved away from psychedelic hard rock sounds towards a gentler, more contemplative aesthetic. Leading this new scene of acoustic singer songwriters were James Taylor and Carole King. Taylor was a shy introspective teenager with a remarkable talent; King, already a famous songwriter, was embarking on a career as an artist in her own right. Together they found a unique musical affinity, as well as a close personal relationship, that led them to collaborate on two of the most legendary and beautiful albums of the decade; James Taylor’s Sweet Baby James and Carole King’s Tapestry. At Thanksgiving in 2007, Taylor, King and the original players ("The Section") who appeared on both Sweet Baby James and Tapestry, returned to the Troubadour for a sentimental journey through their old set list. Live at the Troubadour captures the moment when Taylor and King reunited to perform some of their best loved hits, including "Will You Still Love Me?" and "You’ve Got A Friend".

Let me start this review by saying I am a huge fan of James Taylor, he has produced some of the finest music over the last forty years or so. His fame here grew when The Beatles label Apple signed him,and the classic songs began to appear on albums that remain on all time albums still as popular now as they were then.He is a superb guitarist,one of the best acoustic players ever and an inspiration to so many up and coming artists,and his voice is just perfect for the material he records and performs. Add to that on this set the wonderful Carole King,again a great vocalist and pianist writer of songs like 'It's Too Late','Will You Love Me Tomorrow','So Far Away' and many more,classic albums including 'Tapestry' which was recently re-mastered and re-released in de luxe form,Here we're talking two artists of incredible talent who performed together thirty years ago coming together again at the LA Troubadour venue for this very special gig,along with a band consisting of three musicians who recorded and performed with them way back in the seventies.So well did this gig go they are currently on a major US tour of large arena's.
To this set then , coming as a CD/DVD set, not at an arena but a club type venue that is absolutely perfect for their music, this set is even better than I thought it would be,the songs are well known all fifteen of them, the production by Peter Asher excellent throughout. The DVD is nicely filmed draws you right into the concert with Carole King enjoying every second of it.James Taylor between songs shares stories and has a few funny quips along the way.The band are excellent and add such a dimension to the songs as well although some are just JT and CK,some just James alone.

If you enjoy JT or CK, even just a little, this is not an optional purchase! I can't say I'm an avid fan of either but I just can't get enough of this DVD!

JT is clearly still at the very top of his game, with ever-more-convoluted winds and twists in his delivery and an impossibly deep understanding of what makes a great song truly unforgettable. CK oozes emotion throughout and bathes the stage with what I can only describe as an aura, delivering some truly moving performances.

But this show wasn't about two individuals, though great artists in their own right they undoubtedly are. This was about celebrating a deep friendship spanning over 4 decades and producing some of contemporary music's most hummable melodies. Add to all that the historical importance of the venue and an uncanny feeling of being totally intimate with the performers, this has to be my best ever music DVD.

The melding of JT's guitar, CK's piano and the surprisingly small band produces sounds which, if you close your eyes, you would think were coming from a dozen or more performers - to the verge of being orchestral in places. The arrangements are exquisite, the sound mixing and recording is virtually faultless and, (at least reproduced on my 25 year old Hi-Fi, which is hooked into the DVD player), produces countless high spots and emotional rushes.

If I were to be hyper-critical (excuse me for this - I have been playing live music most of my life), CK's voice reveals the odometer reading in places and, amazingly, JT's pace has a noticeable wanderlust until brought into check by the drummer. But hey! This is live music, right? I can only ponder as to how anyone can create such quality live on stage.

43 of 45 people found the following review helpful By Bodhi Heeren TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 1 Jun. 2010
Format: Audio CD
On this wonderful set these two illustrious singer/songwrtiters are accompanied by the host of musicians that originally played on their groundbreaking hit albums in the early 70s. The formidable rhythm section of Leland Sklar and Russ Kunkel. And adding the always interesting lead guitarwork of legendary Danny Kootchmar.

Not only relying on their hits this is a great crosssection of their work with lots of emotional and artistic highpoints. Carole King might sound a bit rusty in places where as James Taylor - like Graham Nash or Art Garfunkel - seems to have lost nothing whatsoever.

The DVD - directed by another legendary figure Peter Asher - is absolutely top notch. And of course beautiful to see these mature musicians in such intimate surroundings. Celebrating the club where the likes of Linda Ronstadt and Eagles also started their career.

Not merely nostalgic but absolutely beautiful and timeless.

What a treat! Two absolutely brilliant singer-songwriters, both still singing beautifully, working together and celebrating their friendship. The songs are performed with enormous brio, the sound quality is excellent and the live experience is just right. And the DVD is something I can watch many times. A great package at a great price.

The problem with live recordings is they rarely capture a mood and are often full of self-indulgent performances. This is the exception - it's a return journey to where the West Coast sound began for these two exceptional talents.

Earlier this year, Carole King and James Taylor did the same again and I hesitated over the expense of travelling to LA for one gig and a one night stay. I deeply regret not going after seeing this DVD.

The atmosphere is electric; the music featuring some of the finest songs ever written ... and played by two of the world's greatest singer/songwriters. This is very special; The Troubadour is a surprsingly intimate venue and (having been there) a real piece of West Coast music history. It's where it all began.

Don't just buy this for yourself; buy a copy for someone who truly loves music. It's a very special piece of magic.
