James Taylor - Live In New York '74 - 2CD
In April of 1974, with his new album completed, Taylor took to the road for a four-week tour to promote 'Walking Man', which would be released that June. Building on the monumental hallmark albums 'Sweet Baby James', 'Mud Slide Slim' and 'One Man Dog', the album showed Taylor embracing electric instrumentation more than ever before. Accompanied by outstanding musicians, he began selling out large venues across North America. The two final nights of this tour would be held at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City where the audience was spoiled with vintage songs from his first two albums, guest appearances and an inspired overview of an already esteemed back catalogue. This timeless quality has served Taylor well and this show displays exactly why his music endures, and why he justifiably remains a cornerstone of the singer-songwriter genre.
