"I've seen fire, and I've seen rain..."

James Taylor - One Man Band CD/DVD

Available Tuesday, November 13
at Starbucks and other locations that sell CDs and DVDs

One of the neatest sights to see is a musician tell the audience the stories behind the songs. Sweet Baby James does just that on this intimate performance with a pianist and a drum machine - for real! Reminiscing about the 1970s in the days with Carole King and admitting what his songs were really about ("The Frozen Man" was about his father), you feel like you're on the back porch at his house doing story time.

What's also good to hear and hard to come by nowadays is a musician such as Mr. Taylor sounding the exact same as he did when he recorded these some. Watch the DVD on a quiet night or listen to the CD when you're Sunday driving. It's like an extended version of VH1's "Storytellers" without commercials.
