Live at the Troubadour / Carole King, James Taylor

From Charlene Muhr
Live at the Troubadour / Carole King, James Taylor
In the early seventies, James Taylor and Carole King played a landmark concert at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.  This album reunites the musicians/songwriters in November 2007 for the 50th anniversary of the Troubadour.  Their return to this venue was a sentimental journey in which the artists take turns accompanying each other on their most popular hits. Between songs, King and Taylor reminice about their early careers, their first hit songs, and how they got together.  “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” was King’s first hit which was written with her then husband, Gerry Goffin.  Although King wrote “You’ve Got a Friend”, she loved Taylor’s version and it became his signature song.  We also learned the origin of Taylor’s “Sweet Baby James”, written for his nephew, his namesake, while driving down to North Carolina to meet him.  This cd and dvd is a wonderful collaboration of two artists that is not to be missed.
