Product description

2001

Please see photos for more details

James Taylor emerged in the late Sixties, a protege of Paul MaCartney, on Apple records and became a Seventies global superstar, his music reflecting the trend for confessional singer-songwriters ably backed by talented professionals. He hit the charts with "Fire and Rain", "You've Got a Friend", "Carolina on my Mind", and "Handy Man".;His career was given a further boost by his high-profile marriage to singer Carly Simon and he retains a huge cult following world-wide which, on his last visit to the UK, sold out the Royal Albert Hall.;This "worts and all" biography explores Taylor's Scottish ancestry and family history as shipbuilders and pioneering American settlers. It details the intriguing family history - his father was a university professor and doctor, and both his parents were political activists for liberal causes. It also examines Taylor's heroin addiction, the failure of his marriage to Carly Simon and the numerous disputes with Warner Brothers, his record label for the most prolific period of his career.
