Covers songs Product Information
Covers album for sale by James Taylor was released Sep 30, 2008 on the Hear Music label. James Taylor has never been afraid of covers--some of his biggest hits include relaxed versions of the soul classics "How Sweet It Is" and "Handy Man," as well as his sensitive acoustic take on Carole King's "You've Got A Friend"--but COVERS is his first album consisting entirely of other people's songs. Recorded live-to-tape with his 11-piece touring band, these 12 songs range from playful takes on early rock and R&B classics like Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" and the Drifters' "On Broadway" to graceful versions of songs by contemporaries like Jimmy Webb ("Wichita Lineman") and Leonard Cohen ("Suzanne"). Covers CD music contains a single disc with 12 songs. ...See Full Description

||James Taylor is still So Sweet|
I love the creative talent of James Taylor. He has always had that elusive ability to write songs and perform songs with style and integrity that no one else can equal.

||Love my James!!|
We love the CD..James Taylor adds his unique sound to old favorites..we play him all day at work!!

||Very good... but too friggin' short!|
This is a very good CD. James is at his best on remakes of Motown songs. Had his version of "It's Growing" been issued in the late 70's to early 80's at his commercial peak, it would have been a major hit.

||JT Almost Does It|
I have bootleg recordings of Roadrunner, Some Days You Gotta Dance, and Summertime Blues that completely shame his tame studio versions, but Wichita Lineman more than makes up for it, worth the price of admission alone!!!
