You know it's James Taylor when you hear him sing. There's something very special about his voice and the classic songs he's sung over the years.
He's also regarded as one of the nicest guys in the music business and that really comes over in his work.
From the early days on Apple records to the unforgettable sucesses while signed to Warner in the 1970s, he really made his mark. He then signed with Sony and we saw something of a renaissance in the late '90s.
You can't help feeling fine and relaxing when you listen to him, as there's something soothing in the way he performs.
There a lot of variation in his collection though, so you really need to know where to start. Whatever you do, get yourself a copy of his Greatest Hits as you really won't regret it.
