 Notes & Reviews
Stunning; James Taylor transcends these marvelous songs into his own shining interpretations while saluting those who have gone before.
- Helen Matthews, 12/24/2008, Australia

COVERS is the CD that James Taylor fans have been anticipating for years. Recorded live with his full band in a barn in Massachusetts that was transformed into a studio, the album is a treasury of songs he has performed live over the years, but never recorded. It is an American songbook of tunes made famous by artists as varied Buddy Holly, the Dixie Chicks, the Temptations, Leonard Cohen, George Jones and Eddie Cochran, but embraced and interpreted by James Taylor in a way that makes each one his own. It is a significant work by one of the greatest artists of his generation, which pays tribute to classic American songs from Broadway to Nashville, Detroit to Memphis and across all boundaries. COVERS is in itself a classic James Taylor recording.
