James Taylorby James Taylor
James Taylor was the first artist to be signed to record on the Beatles' short-lived vanity Apple label. In late 1968, Taylor's sophisticated self-titled disc foreshadowed the introspective singer/songwriter genre that dominated pop music in the early and mid-'70s. Although often touted as his debut, this release is chronologically Taylor's second studio outing.

James Taylor based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This early James Taylor album was produced by the Beatles Apple company and it is best known for the song "Something in the way she moves" which George Harrison "borrowed", reversed the scale, and came up with the Beatle hit "Something" (or was it just a strange coincidence?). Along with that, there are some nice songs here but his best work was yet in the future.
This CD contains the only version of "Carolina in my Mind" worth listening to.
