I listened to this album based of the golden oldie appeal of 3 tunes, but now I'd say that JT's greatest hits are not very great. His vocal quality is pleasant enough but other similar artists such as Art Garfunkel, Jim Croce, Carole King and Don McLean have better, more distinctly evocative (non-Best-of) albums. As I don't collect singles, I deleted this album.
Live "Steamroller" Replaced By Studio Original
By D-J Ross
The vinyl LP fans have noticed it already, and the above review claims that "Steamroller" here is LIVE but this CD replaces it with the original 1970 studio version from the "Sweet Baby James" album. Too bad because this was the only album with that explicit rockin' bluesy live version. Docked One Star!
One of the Greatest Greatest Hits Albums
Iconic album - a must-have by an American treasure
I really like Fire and Rain because it reminds of myself a lot. So amazing that I can't even describe how lovely this song is.
(So is the rest of the album!)
The only secular album my mother owned
I grew up listening to this *tape* in my mom's two-tone brown Ford Aerostar van. To my knowledge it was the only secular album she owned, and she'd always fast forward at the end when Steamroller came on to start the tape over again at the beginning (apparently Jesus didn't approve of that track). I bought her the CD for Xmas over a decade ago, the tape having long been lost. Now I finally own my own digital version and I cannot wait to sing along.

Apple iTunes, You lousy politically correct punks! You replaced the longer and much better with more emotion original version of steamroller blues because, let me guess. He said the curse word MF.
He's the music version of Bob Ross
Love Taylor’s music. Wish his song with Steven Colbert was on this CD.
By Don Corleone 1974
This is NOT the original version of “Steamroller” from the LP “Greatest Hits.” It’s the only way JT can be disappointing.
