Note to self: Delete any James Taylor “music” that might have been mistakenly downloaded. What an asshat!

I have to admit, I’ve never heard that one. My favorite is “Fourth of July” on his October Road album. I love the way he sings about the patriots and the minutemen and the things we believe, we believed in then.... such as freedom. I’m just so disappointed.

Down 3.6 million jobs since he was inaugurated. Absolutely remarkable.

That is a remarkable record. Never to be outdone.

And don't forget the debt! That is an even bigger legacy.

...his fans overran the snow-covered Berkshires like a bunch of cockroaches.

Don't forget about Arlo Guthrie. Every Thanksgiving we've got to hear that one trick pony singing about Alice...

WOW. That was sublime.
Funny, the name Roy Buchanan has been bouncing around in my head for many many years because the first (and probably only) time I heard him was about 20 plus years ago and I was transfixed, just as I was by “Messiah”, and I said to myself “that is the GREATEST guitar playing I’ve ever heard”
Whenever the subject of guitarists came up in conversation
I’d inevitably say “Have you ever heard this guy Roy Buchanan?
And I say this as someone who grew up with Michael Bloomfield’s cousin, and Bloomfield, who hailed from nearby Glencoe, Ill.,about five,six years older than us, would sometimes pop in at our highschool dances and treat us to an impromptu jam. He was amazing, and would usually show up with jeans torn from crotch to below the knee on the inseam, and make a point of prominently displaying that as he played.
I’m going to make listening to RB a regular thing now.
Still nothing that gets me more than blues-grounded music, whether its bigger category is rock, or jazz, or country or whatever. Great music is all alike, it’s simply great.
Too bad Buchanan didn’t do an encore: he was finished a good two minutes before that 9:36 clip ran out, and never came back to the stage.

Can anyone find a link to the hilarious piece Joe Queenan did several years ago on James Taylor? I think it was from GQ. Reading it, my long-simmering resentment and discomfort with the icky music of Taylor and his persona and his unearned Icon status finally came into focus, and I found myself saying
“Yes, Joe’s put his finger on it!”.
And he was so good back in 1970.
