Format: Audio CD
The vastly underrated Livingston Taylor has been honing his craft for some thirty years now, and on this CD he turns himself loose on a collection of well-chosen material. Two of the songs are Liv's own ("Our Turn To Dance" and "I Must Be Doing Something Right," both from the CD _Our Turn To Dance_); the rest are from all over the musical map.

For this recording, Liv has hooked up with a tight little outfit consisting of two (other) acoustic guitars, acoustic bass, percussion, harmonica, and a pair of backing vocalists; the overall style is no-frills jazz-inflected folk of the very finest kind. The tunes themselves are all wonderfully arranged for this musical setting, and some of them work shockingly well: I personally didn't even particularly like "Baker Street" when it was new (and tremendously overplayed), and I was pretty well blown away by this recording of it. (The sax part taken over by a blues harp? Believe it or not, they pull it off.) Likewise, a couple of the others -- for example Ambrosia's "The Biggest Part of Me" -- are not tunes I especially cared before before I got this CD. But Liv breathes new life into them.

Liv's own guitar work is uncredited in the liner notes, but if you're familiar with his style you can hear him playing on some of the tunes anyway. And his mellifluous tenor has only improved over the years; his delivery is earnest, credible, and inflected with his trademark impish humor. The result is one of Liv's finest CDs, a studio effort that sounds live.

If you're new to Liv, this CD is a great place to begin. (I even prefer the version of "I Must Be Doing Something Right" on this CD to the one on _Our Turn To Dance_.

This is one of those rare cd's that after owning for over a year, I still keep it with me constantly. whenever i am at a loss as to what to listen to, thisgoes in. Livingston combines the beauty of his acoustic talents with a never overbearing backup that is a joy to listen to time andtime again. His acoustic talents shine on Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely" and the romantic ballad "The More I See You". His remake of "I Must Be Doing Something Right", previously released as a duet with Michael Franks,is far superior to the original. The cd closes with a splendid version of "Never Can Say Goodbye". I recommend this cd to any and everybody. It makes a perfect gift for those who have never experienced Livingston'smusic.

" Ink " is an excellent place to start for anyone who is not familiar with Livingston Taylor's work. From beginning to end, this album is a definite winner--especially beautiful and poignant is the tune " Fly Away. " Liv always seems to have that ability to fill your heart to full capacity. From original tunes, such as " First Time Love " to startling remakes of Ambrosia's " Biggest Part of Me " and Stevie Wonder's " Isn't She Lovely, " Liv consistantly paints beautiful pictures of lovliness and delivers powerful doses of positivity. " Hallelujah, Liv ! We love you so ! "

The highly underrated Livingston Taylor joins the SACD roster with a very enjoyable disc that is perfect for high-stress days. Includes 2 original songs, "Our Turn To Dance" and "I Must Be Doing Something Right" as well as an eclectic collection of covers. The covers range from Ambrosia "The Biggest Part of Me" to Don Henley "The End of the Innocence" to Stevie Wonder "Isn't She Lovely." In addition, he presents interesting versions of "Never Can Say Goodbye" and "Baker Street."

As for the sonics, this is one of Chesky's best-sounding discs. Just listen to the whistle(s) on "Isn't She Lovely" -- excellent detail and realism. The multi-channel mix is not overly-agressive. The rears are used just for ambience. The vocals come from the front L and R speakers. There is very little center activity on this disc.

Like most Chesky and Telarc discs, the volume does need to be cranked up a bit. Since the material is so good, you won't mind. -- emilsjr, SA-CD.net

Whenever I am stressed out by the day's events, this is the first album I put on. Livingston Taylor's vocals are just so soothing and the songs on this CD are so smooth and easy to listen to. While Oleta Adams has the best performance of "Get Here," Livingston brings his own style to the song and makes it one of the best renditions of this classic.

His last name is Taylor and his voice sounds like James' so to answer the question is he related to James Taylor? The answer is yes, they are brothers. Livingston's music is every bit as good as his brother's in most every way and this album is excellent. If there is any criticism at all, occasionally Livingston's voice seems to get slightly stressed on certain passages but I also think Livingston is willing to go places his brother won't with his repertoire. James may make a conscious decision to stay within his vocal ability to avoid any limitations. I think Livingston is willing to take a few more risks and that is refreshing.

I did not purchase this album here but instead downloaded a much higher resolution version that surpasses CD quality to a large degree. CD quality is 16bit 48kHz. After all it is a technology that is over 20 years old. Recording studios now record at a minimum of 24bit 176kHz but the old CD does not handle that. The sound gets watered down in the process of transferring the music over to the CD. Super Audio CD or SACD does accommodate the higher sound quality of today's recordings but the SACD for this album is hard to come by. Now thanks to improved methods to move sound from a computer to your speakers using the latest DAC technology, the average person, for a reasonable cost, can download the better quality recording and you certainly can hear the difference. Enough of the soapbox.

The bottom line is the HD version of this album is superb and really shows Livingston's work in the best light and that light shines very brightly in any format you decide to purchase this album.
