  • After performing many cover versions in concert over his forty odd year career, American singer/songwriter James Taylor decided to commit them to tape. Recorded in January 2008 in a converted barn in Massachusetts, the album sees Taylor take on a selection of songs by some of the world's greatest songwriters. From Eddie Floyd's soul classic 'Knock On Wood' through Rogers and Hammerstein's 'Oh What A Beautiful Morning' to Jimmy Webb's 'Wichita Lineman', the tracks are presented here in Taylor's characteristically understated and soulful folk rock style. Taylor's recording of Webb's masterpiece earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

 Sweet Mr T...

After the brilliance of October Road, James Taylor shows a return to form with Covers. At first glance the titles may seem a motley crew of choices - but a close listen will dispel any reservations you may have. If anything, the assembled songs simply confirm James Taylor's ultimate skill in turning somebody else's song into something entirely his own. Let's face it: anyone who can take Oh What A Beautiful Morning and make it into a smooth, easy ballad oozing laid-back charm simply has to have class! Highlights for me include Wichita Lineman and Seminole Wind, whilst Some Days You Gotta Dance and Knock on Wood will have you up and dancing - whether you like it or not! This may not have the immediate appeal or originality of October Road, but it's more than worth a listen. Great to see Mr T singing as sweet as ever!
