180gm double vinyl LP pressing. James Taylor began his career in the late-'60s with a guitar, a suitcase and a handful of original songs. On 2007's One Man Band - recorded live over several dates at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, MA in July 2007 - Taylor returned to this spirit and showcased material from the previous 40 years of his legendary career from "Something in the Way She Moves," "Carolina In My Mind," "Fire and Rain," right up to "Mean Old Man" and "My Traveling Star" from his most recent release October Road. One Man Band marked a return to an earlier, simpler style of performance for the quintessential singer-songwriter. "This project has been working in my mind for years," said Taylor. "Performing these songs in their original, stripped-down form in small halls is like going to the well for water. It reconnects me to the music and puts me back in touch with the audience." The result is an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind portrait of an iconic American artist and his renowned repertoire!
