How can you not love this record? I remember when it came out & everyone had a copy and everyone had a relationship to its every word & sound.

One of his very best. Not a bad song on the album.
- Michael Baurer, 09/17/2007, USA

A must have for all JT fans. Like a second greatest hits album.

A classic!

The album that launched a thousand heavy-hearted singer/songwriters on their not-so-merry way, Sweet Baby James was arguably the first shot in what became the soft revolution of the early '70s. a refugee of the Beatles' Apple label, Taylor struck commercial gold with Sweet Baby James by augmenting his acoustic guitar and soothing vocals with laid-back accompaniment (which included equally influential singer/songwriter insurrectionist Carole King on piano) and penning a slew of songs that drew upon folk, soul, and rock influences. 'Fire and Rain' stands as the quintessential early Taylor tune: musically mellow and lyrically restive, it put Taylor in the Top 10 and set the tone for a popular school of '70s sound.
