Just how badly did Warner Bros Records screw over James Taylor?

Digital Music News took a dive into the legal papers filed by James Taylor’s attorneys, and have broken down the 52 ways Warner Bros. screwed over James Taylor.

What’s interesting to note is that the first audit was given to Warner Bros. in 2007 in attempt to resolve the discrepancies, but in many instances Warner didn’t even pay the compromise they supposedly reached.

It also breaks down the specific examples of how the 1974 album Walking Man has been seriously under-reported by Warner by 50%. Considering this is James’ sole album of this period to never be certified Gold in sales, the long-held belief of this album not landing as strongly with listeners could very well end up being a myth.

Read the entire article. While some of the terminology goes over my head, it’s amazing just how deep the errors go, intentional or not. And this is only from 2004. This could have been going on since 1969.
