    James Taylor has never been afraid of covers--some of his biggest hits include relaxed versions of the soul classics "How Sweet It Is" and "Handy Man," as well as his sensitive acoustic take on Carole King's "You've Got A Friend"--but COVERS is his first album consisting entirely of other people's songs. Recorded live-to-tape with his 11-piece touring band, these 12 songs range from playful takes on early rock and R&B classics like Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" and the Drifters' "On Broadway" to graceful versions of songs by contemporaries like Jimmy Webb ("Wichita Lineman") and Leonard Cohen ("Suzanne"). It's a fresh, relaxed, and endearing take on the often-tired covers album concept.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.71) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] great singer-songwriter playing DJ, showcasing songs he loves for listeners who love him."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.101) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[M]ainly a joyous affair, good-timey in a well structured way and often reminiscent of the kind of thing Johnny Rivers used to dispense at the start of the '70s."
