James Taylor Online reports that the 1984 documentary In Our Hands has been released on DVD. The film captures the historic peace demonstration in New York City on June 12, 1982. More information on the documentary is available on the director’s website RichterVideos.com. The movie was originally released February 16, 1984, and was released on DVD (actually, it seems to be independently released on DVD-R, which is basically like a print-to-order burned DVD) on January 5, 2009. Both James Taylor and Carly Simon perform. I’ve never seen this and have never heard too much about it, so I’m not sure whether they appear together, what they perform, or how much they are in this. Anyone know?
Also on DVD is the October 14, 2002, episode of “Charlie Rose” with an interview appearance by James Taylor during his promotion of October Road. The interview concludes with a solo performance of “Carolina In My Mind”. This actually isn’t a new release (August 15, 2006), but JTO might be the first to actually notice it’s out there. You can also watch the whole segment at CharlieRose.com.
