American singer-songwriter, six-time Grammy winner and one of the biggest selling artists of all time James Taylor is a force to be reckoned with. With a career spanning decades Taylor achieved his first No.1 hit in 1971 with his recording of ‘You’ve Got A Friend’, a track written by Carole King, and his first U.S. album No.1 in 2015 with his album ‘Before This World’ his nineteenth studio album.
With a massive collection of songs under his belt this Greatest Hits brings together a small selection of instantly recognisable tracks from his early catalogue. Released in 1976 with 6 albums already completed, Greatest Hits is still his best-selling album. Taylor is a master wordsmith and that is showcased on the selection compiled for this album.
Including massive hits written by Taylor such as “Something in the Way She Moves”, “Fire and Rain” and “Sweet Baby James” plus covers of Carole Kings “You’ve Got a Friend” and the Marvin Gaye track “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)”. It brings a very nice balance of what has made James Taylor one of the best American songwriters of all time. A folk god who will sing you through Americana and leave you wanting more.
