 Notes & Reviews
Gorilla is singer-songwriter James Taylor's sixth studio album. Released in 1975, it was more successful than Walking Man, his previous release, with two hits: 'Mexico' and 'How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)', which rose to the top five on the Billboard charts. This would be his second-to-last release of new material for Warner Bros. Records, his last being In the Pocket. In many ways, Gorilla showcased Taylor's electric, lighter side that became evident on Walking Man. The song 'Sarah Maria' is about his daughter Sally (born Sarah Maria Taylor on January 7, 1974). His wife Carly Simon is featured on 'How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)' originally recorded by Marvin Gaye. Jimmy Buffett covered 'Mexico' on his 1995 album Barometer Soup and performed 'Lighthouse' during his Salty Piece of Land tour of 2005.
