Released:
Label: Hear Music
James Taylor, whom some believe is the bard of his generation, has never been known as a man of interpretation, much less one who covers golden oldies and classic honky-tonk. Yet that's exactly what JT reaches for on Covers. With a pack of solid pro musicians backing him, including smooth female vocalists, the One Man Dog breezes through Sunday afternoon versions of "Wichita Lineman," "Why Baby Why" and "Hound Dog." He even reworks Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues" -- funky brass, anyone?
