I know several members here are my age, which means James Taylor was probably a presence during your "formative" years. He has a new CD out, Before This World, which is his first new material in 13 years. It's great to hear his beautiful, mellow voice again!

Frankie - James Taylor has such a soothing voice.  I had a dog that was afraid of lightening and I used to sing JT to him to keep him calm.

 

Thanks for the heads up :-)

But, did you know this is James Taylor's first chart-topping album?  According to news reports, he leapfrogged over Taylor Swift to reach the No. 1 spot!

 

From Forbes online:

 

The people have showered Mr. James Taylor with love this week (if you’re a fan, you’ll understand the interesting choice of prose) by finally giving him a number one album. After 45 years in the business, the legendary singer-songwriter has nabbed his first chart topper with his seventeenth studio album, Before This World.

 

The record has been a long time coming…but not as long as the chart achievement. Before is Taylor’s first album of original material in thirteen years, and what a welcome back it is. The album is his twelfth top ten, and with 97,000 units moved, easily this week’s best-seller.

Listening to James Taylor is like reconnecting to an old friend. You just pick up where you left off! I love the man and I will have to check out his new music.
