The Boston Globe has posted a review of James Taylor’s Covers, which is on-sale today. They dub “Wichita Lineman” the essential track of the album.
This metaphor may be the oldest in the book. But to open James Taylor’s new “Covers” album and settle back to listen to his voice is like uncorking a fine wine that has been deepened and enriched by age. Taylor’s new collection of covers is a bit of trifle, composed of musical chestnuts recorded with his “Band of Legends” in a 10-day period in a converted barn on Taylor’s western Massachusetts property. However, for a modest little offering, you’ll be amazed at its presumption.
