This review is from: Live At The Troubadour (CD +DVD) (Audio CD)
Carol King and James Taylor together at the Troubadour! I have to say that of all the artists, I can't think of two others that represent the 60's and 70's better than these two. There songs and voices are cornerstones to the era and have the power to propel us back to a momentous time when we felt empowered to change the world.
James Taylor performs most of his classics, Fire and Rain; Carolina on My Mind; Sweet Baby James, and others. Carol King likewise gives us her classics, I Feel the Earth Move; So Far Away and others. I also did not know that Carol King helped to write Up On the Roof and actually let James release it before she did. The benefits of live concerts.
Both the CD and DVD are well produced. Watch the DVD allows the producers to include the small banter and stories that are often left off a live CD.
If you're a product of the 60's and 70's and you listened to the music then, this is one purchase you'll want to make.
Bless us all and peace.

It was "You've Got a Friend" that Carole gave James to release before her version on Tapestry was released. Up on the Roof was first covered by the Drifters. Great review!
