JT's voice is so instantly identifiable - which some people might think is not a good thing, but they're just wrong ;-)    I faintly heard this track playing on RP from the other end of the house - I had to break off what I was doing and simply sit and listen.

His music was the romantic background to my student years (1970s) and has drifted in and out of my life, at the right moments, ever since.  A highlight was seeing him play at the Hammersmith Apollo (London, for those who may not know where Hammersmith is) - beautiful voice, beautiful music, and a beautifully relaxed, low-key and amusing presentation style in between the songs.....one of the world's great, class acts, seemingly without effort.

Huge fan when Sweet Baby James (a sometimes-brilliant album) was released, but then not at all again until I saw a good friend of mine perform a long set of Taylor's music live at a cafe. Since then, I have been enjoying Taylor's music again — until this song this morning. Sorry, but this is really not doing it for me.

Bill, perhaps I am missing other plays of JT... all I ever hear is Copperline. While it is a great tune, so many more every bit as good if not better. I'm sure you knew that, but had to say something. Several on "In the Pocket.

Ick, vomitrocious.  My gawd, I thought I was free of JT way back in the '80's.  Nearly forty years later, this sunken log has worked itself back up to the surface.  RP, please, please, please bury this...again.

Great song from a great album.  When I think of a lifetime of listening to James Taylor, and all of the great pieces to choose from, I find it surprising, but true, but this is the track that I instinctively go to when I want to hear just one.

Amazing segue from the Energy 52 tune — lovely. And this tune is a solid "9". Saw him from the front row in a small venue in Texas and I realized how much I've taken him for granted as an artist all these years. He's actually not simply a solid and talented performer; he brings a really human element to his songs. And he knows how to play that guitar in a way that makes you kind of gently swoon...
