Metro Canada likes Covers

Metro Canada has a brief review of James Taylor’s new release Covers, giving it 3 1/2 stars.

We’re supposed to be skeptical of these cover albums by veteran artists.  They’re usually cash cows by dried up songwriters and artists in decline. But James Taylor has the voice  for it. His version of Jimmy Webb’s Wichita Lineman alone makes it worthwhile. Other standouts are George Jones’ Why Baby Why, John Anderson’s Seminole Wind and Leonard Cohen’s Suzanne. Taylor also rocks out — in his way — on Hounddog, Summertime Blues, Not Fade Away and Road Runner. Taylor is smooth and classy.
