When I read on James Taylor’s fan site that the great man himself was coming to Auckland on April 10, 2010 along with Carole King, I was ecstatic! Their Troubadour Reunion concert was advertised yesterday in the Sunday Star Times, along with an interview with Taylor and his long-time friend and collaborator Carole King. I have been a fan of James Taylor for years now after my dad introduced me to his music and his albums take up a significant space in my CD collection. He’s one of those artists that whenever I listen to his music my soul glows because it just makes me so happy. He has an amazing voice, which I think has aged like a fine wine, and has written some amazing songs, such as Fire and Rain, Carolina in my mind, Line ’em up, and My travelling star.
I’ll definitely be lining up for tickets when they go on sale on Monday 23 November.
If you’re also a fan, we have some of his albums in the library including my favourites October Road, You’ve got a friend: the best of James Taylor, and One Man Band.
