Mainstream Isn’t So Bad basically likes Covers

The pop music blog Mainstream Isn’t So Bad… Is It? writes a mostly positive review of James Taylor’s Covers. It also includes MP3s of “(I’m A) Road Runner” and “Not Fade Away”.

I’m not going to lie to you; not all of the covers here do it for me. Part of it might be the material, the country songs in particular. I’m not all that familiar with the originals, so I can’t compare, but Taylor’s voice and even more so his style just don’t seem suited for them. He does better with the Motown material and the oldies in my opinion. There are some good tracks here, you just might need to search through to see what tickles your fancy.
