This song brings back a few memories.

So, this is still a wonderful song that has been meaningful to me for well over a decade.

You really have to be good to do session work.

In 1971 I repaired to the new Madison Square Garden in New York accompanied by my buddy Steve on a tough date night. I was twenty years old and as my raging angst and hormones rebelled within my adolescent system, I wanted to calm down by going to a concert offered by a devastatingly handsome and tall hippy like singer song writer named James Taylor, subsequently to be monikered JT. Insiders in the music business were well aware of this young man's gift for guitar and song writing and distinctive vocal style. He had spent some time in Greenwich Village with his group James Taylor and The Flying Machine achieving some following. Interestingly enough in maybe 1968 James did some session work with the Beatles at Apple Records. You really have to be good to do session work. Glen Campbell and Nicolette Larson were two of my favorites background musicians or vocalists the latter was an outstanding vocalist, both of them emerged from the background afterwards. Anyway, we get into the Garden and immediately notice that the place was half full. James was sitting on a stool and there was actually debris on the stage. He sang Fire and Rain and I was stunned at how I connected with the song. After that the kids, all of us emotionally wound by the era and the god awful one that proceeded it went on to as fans to help to create a mega star in James Taylor. Incidently I understand that he will soon appear with his old friend and collaborator Carol
King, probably up there in the top five singer song writers of our generation. This is what I have desired for the music industry beginning five years ago when I started out as a critic and it is beginning to happen with the Who chosen to perform at the Super bowl and Paul McCartney performing on television. Getting back to James Taylor, he exemplifies verifiable genetic talent, we really need that today anywhere we can get it.

The song recording quality seems to be low. It would be nice if it was redone in a better quality.

Words can scarce describe the simple, heartwarming beauty of a track such as this. We have all heard at some point; playing on the radio, or gracing a film with it's accompanying presence. It can speak to anyone; everyone who has left a spark of human understanding, who has built up mountains of hopes, and lived to see them fall to pieces, yet live on in dreams. It is a deeply human song; crying from the wells of aching love and troubles borne throughout the passing of years. For most, it will bring a tear in their eye; only because they know the feelings so very closely. For others the song has no meaning; they are masters of their life and fiercely proud of it. Let them live awhile longer, and return when time has ripened their humanity.

A must own.
