Description

First signed to The Beatles'' Apple label, gifted American troubadour James Taylor released his eponymous debut in 1969. Throughout the 70s, he continued to build his reputation as one of pop''s most beloved and influential recording artists, delivering such multi-million sellers as "Mud Slide Slim", presented here on 180-gram HQ vinyl and mastered from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman. Features all original packaging. Highlights include "You''ve Got A Friend", "Mud Slide Slim", and "You Can Close Your Eyes". Taylor has gone on to garner four Grammys as well as inductions into both the Rock And Roll and Songwriters Hall Of Fame, and in 1998 he was honored with the Billboard Century Award.

The yearn to travel and bitter sweet rememberances of people encountered and places left behind are the primary themes of this album. Most of the songs are slow balads, many with sad or regretful overtones. This is good background music for a quiet evening at home spent thinking of people and events of the past. Not especially uplifting, but there are times when uplifting and joyful songs simply don''t fit the current mood.

Not recommended if you object to downers or simply sad rememberances. However, if you generally like James Taylor and or easy listening songs of a more reminiscent moods, this may be just the ticket.

The audio is very clean, but does seem to not have the sharp high of other James Taylor albums. Perhaps this was an artistic choice to better reflect the general mood of this album. Of course, it may also be that Rhino simply didn''t catch the sharper highs when they digitized this music.

I''m ashamed to admit that the very first James Taylor song I heard was back when I''d never heard of him. A cover of "Fire and Rain" showed up on a new Blood Sweat & Tears album I''d just bought, then the next thing you know I heard his own version of it on FM. But it took this landmark third album for his sound to carry its own ID card no matter who did one of his songs. A guy I was jamming with at the time did the title track from this album and I immediately spotted it as a Taylor song by its sound alone--I''d never heard Taylor''s own version of it. It proved that his music carries his own stamp no matter who does it. He even brings his own style to covers like Carole King''s "You''ve Got a Friend", which I hadn''t known was hers when Taylor released it as his second single. But you listen to King''s own version of it and you spot the fact that Taylor even copied her piano intro on guitar. I think that was what made Taylor a success, critical mention of a "thin, reedy voice" notwithstanding. For a singer of the "folkie" genre to be that skillful on guitar is not in the least a given--the other one who comes to mind is the early Paul Simon. Chordal accompaniment is usually the rule, even for the iconic Dylan. When you get someone who can be a really outstanding player as well as songwriter, well, that doesn''t happen every day. That''s when you start to influence others. Friends of mine spotted an unintentional Taylor influence in one of my own songs back then. When musician fans tend to sound like you in some of their own work, that means that you''re a star, no matter where you stand on the charts or how long you''re there. Which makes "Hey Mister That''s Me Up There On the Jukebox" from this album a bit ironic. It has to have been well before this release that it was necessary to point out who that is on the ''Box. Play him on XM and you don''t need to look at the screen tag.

Just as good as "Sweet Baby James" maybe, just maybe, even better. Yes, classic JT is represented here with ''You''ve Got a Friend" , "Hey, Mister That''s Me Upon the Jukebox", but there are alot of other great tracks. ''Riding On A Railroad'', "Let Me Ride" and the title track have always been favorites of mine. I had this album on vinyl and haven''t heard them in years, so it''s good to hear it all on CD again. In James'' long career in the music industry, "Mud Slide Slim" is truly at the top of my list of all-time favorite JT albums.

I am writing this review in response to the one star review of this Audio Fidelity release provided by a "Mr. Withnail." After reading it, I went to the comments on the review in which a Mr. Stephen Marsh stated that "Mr. Withnail" had used the same verbiage, and given the same one star, in a number of reviews of Audio Fidelity audiophile Gold CD reissues. Mr. Withnail denied these assertions.

For the record, I don''t know Mr. Marsh, I have no relationship with nor work for Audio Fidelity (or Mobile Fidelity or any record company for that matter), and, like others, I have found the results of Audio Fidelity''s remasterings to be mixed, ranging from excellent down to "just OK." But I was curious about Mr. Marsh''s assertion and so I personally checked out the reviews of "Mr. Withnail." It turns out that Mr. Marsh is correct. Mr. Withnail does give only 1 star to EVERY Audio Fidelity CD release and a number of his reviews reveal both identical (or very similar) negative verbiage, and, despite his positive words about Steve Hoffman and Mr. Withnail''s compliments on the products of Mr. Hoffman''s DCC label (with which I concur), Mr. Withnail clearly has an animus against Mr. Hoffman and is misusing this Amazon reviewer''s forum as a way simply to lower the average ratings on these limited release remasterings whose sales are directed solely to an audience of audiophiles. I don''t know the causes of Mr. Withnail''s antipathy twoards (or grudge against) Mr. Hoffman (or against Audio Fidelity) but I am aware that, within this audiophile community, Steve Hoffman''s opinions and recent work have brought out passionate responses which, for a few of this limited group, has risen to overt and obsessive hostility. Mr. Withnail seems to be amongst this group and his reviews are likely not based on either purchases or fair listens to AF releases.

For those few who care, I think that this AF reissue is very good. While not as sonically revelatory as the previous first CS&N album or Sweet Baby James, it''s very listenable, easy on the ears and clearly a few steps up from the mushy sound of the WB plain vanilla redbook CDs. I also own and have listened to the Japanese SHM-CD releases of the first five or so James Taylor albums (including the first one that was released on Apple Records). They are also very good but (as is often found in Japanese remasters) are a bit brighter in tone than the AF releases. So, some listeners may prefer the Japanese pressings while others may prefer the somewhat flatter but warmer results from the AF reissues. Due to the extremely high value of the yen against the dollar, however, these Japanese pressings are currently prohibitively expensive (at around $36 to $40 per CD) for even a great number of American audiophile enthusiasts.

In short, there is no one, "ur-perfect" resissue or remaster, since even when the original vinyl albums were released they often sounded different in pressings made in different countries. (For example, one could contrast not only the original EMI British Beatles albums against those radically different masterings and pressings on Capitol in the US but also would find differences in the mixes -- as well as in the masterings -- used in the British versus German or Japanese pressings). For this reason, I think that it is important not only for reviewers to provide thoughtful and honest opinions about the sound quality of reissues and remasterings (whether labelled "remastered," "deluxe," audiophile gold CDs or whatever) but also for prospective buyers of these CDs to read a number of reviews before pressing the "add to basket" button, as those opinions will likely differ to some degree or another. But actual listening and an openness by reviewers to fairly describing the results of these sonic auditions are crucial to the system working. In this context, reviews such as those by Mr. Withnail can unfairly hurt the manufacturers of these products as well as confuse rather than educate prospective purchasers and, thus, should be given little creedence by any reader. Hope this was helpful.

I bought this CD for the one song "You Can Close Your Eyes" which is stunning as is everything this man did..

Many of these songs here are accompanied by Carole King and/or Joni Mitchell, and on really good audio equipment, the all sound so clear and beautiful !

I love the song about the feds stuck him in a hole in Leavenworth Prison where he lived until his dying day. The guy who wrote that song played guitar in James Taylor''s band and they played well on some video I saw lately. There is a duet video with Carly Simon singing You Can Close Your Eyes that is great music for the kind of people who like the songs on Mud Slide Slim and The Blue Horizon. I like hearing in 2013 what impressed me like Hey Mister That''s Me Up On The Jukebox, which seemed perfect to me the first time I heard it. I''m the one: singing this sad song. The logic floors me.

I recently saw James Taylor in concert with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir which was a great show but only lasted a half hour.

Back in the sixties when I was a regular in the Birmingham folk clubs I first heard people singing James Taylor songs and have been a fan ever since. This and Sweet Baby James were two of the first vinyl lp''s I bought at the newly opened Virgin Record shop next to the old law courts in Corporation Street. I still have these in pretty good condition but rarely use the deck these days and you can''t really play them in the car. I''m gradually replacing all my favourite vinyl and recently picked up the revamped Gordon Smith tracks. A very underated guitarist was Gordon. It is nice to listen to all the tracks without having to stop and turn over the disk. Well Gorden has only ever recorded a couple of albums and James moved into the world of jazz but it is nice to hear these old songs now and again, I always considered them to be his best work. JR.

I love vinyl records and the quality from so many of them. This recording is old but must have been at the fourfront of recording technology in 1971. The songs are nice and easy listening and hold my attention with great insight. There are no rough edges to any of the songs but meticulious throughout. This rates as a 70s classic in my opinion. I would not be interested in hearing or buying it on CD as I know the original quality would not shine through in the same way. Pressed in highest quality 120gram extra thickness the record is substantial and very well made. No warps and surface noise is at a minimum. No jumping or sticking stylus. I''m rebuilding a vinyl collection to put sound quality before convienience and this is a great addition. Highly recommended.
