Sometimes, we really need to be able to give a six star rating. This is one of those times.

"Carolina in My Mind" was written and recorded by 19 year-old James Taylor at Abbey Studios, London, England at the same time the Beatles were laying down their last tracks as The Beatles.

In fact, Paul McCartney played bass for the first release of "Carolina in My Mind" and George Harrison did back up harmony. (Paul McCartney appears in the LP's credits; George Harrison's contribution was noted but not printed on the LP jacket.)

For goodness sake, "Carolina in My Mind" is to folk-rock what the Mona Lisa is to Renaissance paintings.

The only way you cannot eternally enjoy this tune is if you just don't like the genre at all or you are James Taylor's next door neighbor and his dog keeps leaving his business in your yard.

Other than that... you have to acknowledge "Carolina in My Mind" is the Great JT's masterpiece of popular folk rock.

I like James Taylor and this was his first big hit describing his time dealing with mental difficulties. folky and somewhat sparse compared to later stuff like Mexico and Copperline which sound more full and provide a real look at his improvement as a musician. still you gotta have this one if you like Sweet Baby James.

James Taylor a singer from my younger years that I never get tired of listening too. All of his music tells a story and it is easy to imagine exactly what he is singing about. This album has some of my all time favorites!

Assuming you like James Taylor or either of the Carolinas.
