  • a very underrated album

    This album doesn't get the recognition it deserves in my point of view. Its ashame because all the songs are originals by James Taylor himself or co-written by him. I don't have to skip any tracks on this album.
  • The songs deserve better

    There are some great songs here that simply suffer from overproduction -- too much keyboards, too much electric guitar, too much studio stuff. Never Die Young is soooo much better on One Man Band, with just acoustic guitar and piano, and just about everything here would benefit from stripping several layers of studio-applied veneer off these songs.

    What a maroon! I just read all of these JT reviews. Definitely angry about something. Anyways, don't listen to them. JT is just a rare joy. Always has been - always will.

    a must have from JT. good range/diversity of songs. never die young "a classic" jt song from a more recent time. buy the whole thing - a partial selection won't be as enjoyable. what a voice.

    I still remember seeing JT on Saturday Night Live when I was a kid singing Sweet Potato Pie. It' why I bought this albumn when I got older. One of my favorite cd's to this day. Every few years I come back to it.

    The more I listen to this album, the more I appreciate what James put into it. What I love about this well-crafted work is it's lasting quality. How many of us have a loquacious friend like 'T-Bone' or a long-lost 'Baby Boom Baby' who keeps us wondering.....? Valentine's Day is pure fun with language and 'Runaway Boy' is just pure fun. I highly recommend quiet time, a glass of wine and a good listen to 'Never Die Young'. In fact, I think I'll do just that.
  • Superb!

    This is a superb album specifically the title track, the ultimate love song. ITunes makes it sound like the collection is dull...quite the contrary. Taylor is a fantastic writer and this album is no exception. Love "Valentine's Day" too!! Enjoy!
  • A terrific album

    The "commercial" review service cited on iTunes can't seem to get past sneering at James Taylor for the "sameness" of his music from album to album, but this is a very shallow way to approach his music. Taylor's musicianship is impeccable, and his appreciation for jazz chording and phrasing is underappreciated. Listen, for example, to what's churning under the simple melodic surface (in terms of chord progressions) in "First Of May," and to the way the band drops slick syncopated beats on "Sweet Potato Pie." And "Sun On The Moon" is a hoot. Download this album and enjoy!
