Description

Between 1970 and 1976, James Taylor released six albums with Warner Bros. Records that became the foundation for his unparalleled career that includes five Grammy® Awards, induction into the Songwriters and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, and more than 100 million records sold worldwide.

-
Each album in the set has been remastered, a process overseen by Peter Asher, who signed Taylor to the Beatles’ Apple Records label in 1968, worked as his manager for 25 years, and originally produced several of these albums.  
-
In the collection’s liner notes Asher writes: “Revisiting these albums several decades later has been revelatory, nostalgic, and exciting. I have heard bits and pieces frequently over the years, of course, but listening with concentration and in detail to each of the original tapes without interruption has been a thrilling luxury.”
-
THE COMPLETE WARNER BROS. ALBUMS: 1970-1976 includes: Sweet Baby James (1970), Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon (1971), One Man Dog (1972), Walking Man (1974), Gorilla (1975), and In the Pocket (1976). 
-
The collection is filled with some of Taylor’s most iconic and beloved songs like “Sweet Baby James,” “Fire And Rain,” “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight,” “Walking Man,” “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You),” “Mexico,” “Shower The People” and “You’ve Got A Friend,” the later which was Taylor’s first #1 hit and earned him his first Grammy Award (Best Male Pop Vocal) in 1971.  
-
The collection also offers up some spectacular deep cuts like his acoustic lullaby “You Can Close Your Eyes” from Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon; the 10-minute song cycle that closes One Dog Man; “Rock ’n’ Roll Music Is Now” from Walking Man, which features backing vocals by Paul and Linda McCartney; and “Don’t Be Sad ’Cause Your Sun Is Down” from In the Pocket, a song Taylor wrote and recorded with Stevie Wonder.

James'' six albums on Warner Bros. cemented him as one of my favorite musical acts of the 1970''s. The new boxed set is terrific. All 6 LPs in their entirety; and reproduced with detail re: original packaging. The small size of type does make it almost impossible to read the liner notes and lyrics on some of them without the benefit of a magnifying glass. But the restored sound is what matters. While his lyrics and voice, and acoustic guitar, are his hallmarks; the production of his tunes and the skill of the supporting players and singers comes out clearly - be it strings, horns, harmonica, etc. (or Joni Mitchell''s, Graham Nash''s and David Crosby''s harmonies). Lots of gems on these 6 LPs and really, they have never sounded better. Great value for the price of admission.

I am apparently the first and only reviewer of the vinyl version of this six album box set that contains "Sweet Baby James", "Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon", "One Man Dog", "Walking Man", "Gorilla" and "In The Pocket".

To be honest, I already have all of Jame''s albums on vinyl, as well as on CD. But I was intrigued and very curious about the remastering process being overseen by Peter Asher, and while most of my albums are in excellent condition . . . music like James Taylor, Cat Stevens and other acoustic artists, tends to pick up the pops and crackles on the old vinyl. So I felt getting James Taylor on some new 180 gram vinyl should sound pretty good. I was not disappointed. The remastering is beautiful and the music is incredibly warm with excellent sound separation and clarity. There is nothing between songs but dead quiet. I love these albums and I''m so glad I got this set!!

This box set represents the early work of James Taylor, and these six disks stand the test of time in both quality and originality. The sound quality is spectacular. Sweet Baby James, the only record that I have experienced for 50 years, is so improved to lead me to believe that it was both remixed and remastered. It rivals the remixing and remastering of recent classics from the Beatles, The Band, and others. It is that good. As we progress through the set, the musicianship, arranging, and recording only get better. So much that I would deem Walking Man, Gorilla, and In the Pocket as genuine audiophile recordings that one might spend as much as $30 a piece. I would highly recommend sitting down and listening to these records on a good audio system start to finish. There are many singles in this set, but some of the deeper cuts really shine in overall quality and may be new to you as they were to me.

James Taylor is one of America''s Greatest Songwriters and performers. So I was awaiting this Long Overdue Collection and although, Great, Just by the sheer body and performance of James Taylor''s work, It''s Not Perfect. With such a Monumental Collection of arguably Jame''s Best Albums and the Remastering by Peter Asher, Why additional tracks, alternative cuts, demos,etc. and a decent set of liner notes weren''t included is almost a sacrilege. The short two page notes by Peter Asher, hardly qualifies and can almost be overlooked hidden in the last CD "In The Pocket" with it''s insert. Giving your fans those kind of extras, would have taken this collection to a Justifiable Perfect Collection. Too Bad the Extra Effort wasn''t done on such a Great Artist as James Taylor, one that is richly deserved.

I have just about every James Taylor CD and have pre-ordered "Standards". I owned these albums back in the 70''s. The music is wonderful but I don''t think it was worth the money to get new copies of CD''sthat already own. What was I thinking? I must admit that I''m 73 years old and have worn hearing aids for more than a decade but I can still hear the difference between good sound and bad. To my ears there is no discernible difference between this set and the CD''s that I bought decades ago. I''ve done a sound comparision between some of my favorite cuts and just don''t hear any cxhange. Younger people with better ears may hear it but I don''t. Five Stars for the music. One star for the so called improved mastering and you wind up with three stars. If you don''t own these albums on CD then it''s a bargain but don''t get them if you think they are an better than the original CD''s.

I bought this box set the day it came out. The CDs are remastered, but it isn''t a huge difference. The best way to explain would be listening to the old CDs is as if you were listening to speakers with blankets over them. The new CDs take off the blanket. There is a manufacturing issue with "In The Pocket". The indexing is off between "Slow Burning Love” and "Everybody Has the Blues". The first three seconds or so of "Everybody Has the Blues" is at the end of “Slow Burning Love". If you listen to the CD straight through, you will not notice it. Should you try to play "Everybody Has the Blues" by itself, it will start with "uppy" instead of "Poor puppy". I have contacted Rhino several times. They sent me a 15% off gift certificate and never acknowledged the issue. One e-mail said since I didn''t buy it directly from them, they couldn''t help. So, I bought Sound Forge and fixed the issue myself for when I playback through iTunes. Not my first go round with a Rhino issue, but they at least corrected it in the past. I guess since we''re not supposed to care about physical media any more, they aren''t supposed to either.

All these records have been in my collection, Vinyl or CD, since they came out. They represent much of the best works he and his musicians have put out and the the collection, these early discs has made him a true icon in popular music. Thankfully, with the tweaks of Peter Asher & the remastering folks, these unforgettable songs sound even better. I am SO grateful that, as an enthusiastic James Taylor lover, I''ve had the opportunity to hear this wonderful music again, and fresh. Just wish, with the CD packaging, the type / font was LARGER. While my heart has been with JT since 1970 and my ears tell me how great the tunes are, my eyes have not weathered as well. Last but certainly not least, looking forward to a NEW CD this year. Hurry, James!!

For long-suffering JT fans (and those who like the earlier hits from 1970 and 1971 but don''t know much more after that) - the big news here is not just the sweetly handled new remasters, the tasty presentation box (hell it even has an insert) and the extremely reasonable price (roughly three quid each) – it''s finally getting availability to these Seventies albums after nearly four decades of digital shenanigans. The Warner Brothers period of James Taylor''s career has had a very chequered CD past since the mid 80ts. Then after years of ok-sounding reissues - there was the beautiful audio of the "You''ve Got A Friend" Best Of compilation in 2003 with choice album tracks, followed by the six sexily cool Japanese SHM-CD reissues in April 2010 with new mastering and exact repros of the American artwork. There were also American Audiophile Gold CD reissues of "Mud Slide Slim" and "One Man Dog" – and on it went. But the average Joe has been looking at £20 to £30+ per album purchase (if you can find them). Well now – at last – in July 2019 - Rhino and Warner Brothers have finally done Boston''s Walking Man the reissue business. You get six albums in one neat clamshell box set with 75-Tracks from "Sweet Baby James" in 1970 through to "In Your Pocket" in 1976 with new Remastering of the whole shebang supervised by original Engineer and Producer Peter Asher (first three LPs, he also managed JT for 25-years). There is a woke load of detail to wade through, so let''s indeed get sweet on baby James once more... UK released 19 July 2019 - "The Warner Bros. Albums 1970-1976" by JAMES TAYLOR on Warner Bros/Rhino R2 587550 (Barcode 603497852390) offers six albums from 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974, 1975 and 1976 newly Remastered onto 6CDs with Mini LP Repro Artwork and it plays out as follows: CD1 "Sweet Baby James" (31:54 minutes, 11 tracks): Second studio album, US released February 1970 on Warner Brothers BS 1843 and November 1970 in the UK on Warner Brothers WS 1843 (reissued December 1971 on Warner Brothers K 46043) Tan label CD, single card sleeve with gatefold lyric insert as per original 1970 vinyl LP CD2 "Mud Slide Slim And The Blue Horizon" (37:21 minutes, 13 tracks): Third studio album, US released April 1971 on Warner Brothers BS 2561 and May 1971 in the UK on Warner Brothers WS 2561 (reissued in the UK on Warner Brothers K 46085 in March 1972) Tan label CD, gatefold card sleeve with no insert as per original vinyl LP CD3 "One Man Dog" (37:44 minutes, 18 tracks): Fourth studio album, US released November 1972 on Warner Brothers BS 2660 and November 1972 in the UK on Warner Brothers K 46185 Tan label CD, single card sleeve and lyric insert as per original vinyl LP CD4 "Walking Man" (34:03 minutes, 10 tracks): Fifth studio album, US released June 1974 on Warner Bros W 2794 and June 1974 in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56042 Burbank label CD, single card sleeve with no insert as per original vinyl LP CD5 "Gorilla" (39:02 minutes, 11 tracks): Sixth studio album, US released May 1975 on Warner Brothers BS 2866 and May 1975 in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56137 Burbank label CD, single card sleeve with no insert as per original vinyl LP CD6 "In The Pocket" (44:56 minutes, 12 tracks): Seventh studio album, US released June 1976 on Warner Brothers BS 2912 and June 1976 in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56197 Burbank label CD, single card sleeve with lyric insert as per original vinyl LP There are cool period photos on the front and rear of the clamshell box and inside, a six-leaf foldout inlay (more period snaps) with new liner notes from original Engineer, Producer and Manager of JT for 25 years - PETER ASHER. Asher gives us a potted a backdrop into 1969 and 1970 especially - Taylor''s cohorts in rehearsal and studios – huge names like Carole King of The City pre "Tapestry" fame, Randy Meisner of Eagles (before he''d joined the mega Country Rock band), Red Rhodes of Bamboo, Chris Darrow of Kaleidoscope and his regular rhythm section - Danny Kortchmar of The Flying Machine, Russ Kunkle of The Section and Leland Sklar. There are even corrections to missing musician credits - Craig Doerge (of Jackson Browne''s band) playing Electric Piano on "One Man Dog" while David Sanborn played Alto Sax on the huge hit single "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)". They were mistakenly left off the original inserts. But the big news is a full-on vaults trawl for the remasters - Asher working in supervision tandem with one of Rhino''s longest-standing Audio Engineers since the early 90s - BILL INGLOT - and then to final mastering by the legendary BERNIE GRUNDMAN - a name synonymous with audio excellence. And that''s where this Box Set hits all the right notes - finally hearing deep album gems like "Sunny Skies", "You Can Close Your Eyes", "One Morning in May", "Wandering" or "I Was A Fool To Care" in properly great audio is fab. A gorgeous job done, and as mentioned earlier, not a box set that’s going to cost your life’s savings. SINGLES: This box set will also allow JT fans to sequence almost all 14 of his Warner Brothers US 45s from the period (see Note): 1. Sweet Baby James b/w Suite For 20 G (May 1970, Warner Bros 7387) 2. Fire And Rain b/w Anywhere Like Heaven (August 1970, Warner Bros 7423) 3. Country Road b/w Sunny Skies (January 1971, Warner Bros 7460) 4. You''ve Got A Friend b/w You Can Close Your Eyes (May 1971, Warner Bros 7498) 5. Long Ago And Far Away b/w Let Me Ride (September 1971, Warner Bros 7521) 6. Don''t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight b/w Who, Don''t You Know (November 1972, Warner Bros 7655) 7. One Man Parade b/w Nobody But You (February 1973, Warner Bros 7682) 8. Hymn b/w Fanfare (April 1973, Warner Bros 7695) 9. Let It All Fall Down b/w Daddy''s Baby (August 1974, Warner Bros WBS 8015) 10. Walking Man b/w Daddy''s Baby (November 1974, Warner Bros WBS 8028) 11. How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) b/w Sweet Maria (June 1975, Warner Bros WBS 8109) 12. Mexico b/w Gorilla (September 1975, Warner Bros WBS 8137) 13. Shower The People (Edited) b/w I Can Dream Of You (July 1976, Warner Bros WBS 8222) 14. Woman''s Gotta Have It b/w You Make It Easy (October 1976, Warner Bros WBS 8278) Note: the ''edited'' version of "Shower The People" runs to 3:52 minutes; the LP cut is 4:32 minutes Also the B-side "I Can Dream Of You" is a Livingstone Taylor cover version (his brother) and is a non-album track not available here No less that six of the eleven tracks from his 1970 Warner Brothers debut album "Sweet Baby James" were issued across 1970 and 1971 as 45-singles and reissued many times after – classics like "Fire And Rain", "Country Road" and the title song "Sweet Baby James". But fans will go straight for deep cuts like "Lo And Behold", the warm California sound of "Sunny Skies" and the cool acoustic Blues of "Steamroller" – a track he would return to for his first Greatest Hits set in 1976 with a raucous live version. As a simple Americana, Singer-Songwriter almost Folk-Rock album - "Sweet Baby James" remains as much beloved in 2020 (50 years after the event) as does the follow up from 1971 - "Mud Slide Slim And The Blue Horizon". And the Remaster here is gorgeous. For sure you can’t actually read the lyrics in the repro foldout insert without a magnifying glass – but a nice touch nonetheless. And they have correctly used the "Sweet Baby James" title-only artwork of the February 1970 original - copies from late 1970 through to 1971 and beyond had "Including Fire And Rain and Country Roads" printed beneath the album title when those tunes became huge radio hits. While "Fire And Rain" from 1970''s "Sweet Baby James" and "You''ve Got A Friend" from 1971''s "Mud Slide Slim..." made him a global star (Carole King and Joni Mitchell''s songwriting and vocal presence helped) - 1972''s "One Man Dog" had a lot of small tracks that felt awful like filler amidst the obvious singles like "Don''t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" and "Hymn" (with Randy and Michael Brecker on horns). Linda Ronstadt lent her voice to the excellent "One Morning In May" while a trio of Taylors (Alex, Hugh and James) gave their family harmonies to "Woh, Don''t You Know". Although he managed a healthy No. 13 placing the US Billboard album charts, it''s safe to say that by 1974 and "Walking Man" (what boring cover art too), the public was deserting him in the UK where the album didn''t chart at all. It''s this forgotten album and the two that followed - 1975''s "Gorilla" and 1976''s "In The Pocket" when he''d teamed up with Carly Simon and was having a parallel career with her on Elektra Records - that will interest hard core fans the most. They are the albums you don''t hear and acoustic-peaceful songs like "Daddy''s Baby" and "Wandering" are tunes that deserve this second go round. None other than Paul and Linda McCartney provided backing vocals on the bluesy "Rock ''n'' Roll Is Music Now" while his Walking Man band featured famed guitarists Hugh McCracken and David Spinnoza as well as Carly Simon on Backing Vocals. Speaking of pretty (she sings on) "Ain''t No Song" and its smooth production reminds me so much of Stephen Bishop''s delightful 1976 debut "Careless" over on ABC Records. For sure stuff like "Hello Old Friend" with its city and country naming feels a tad too Neil Diamond (and not in a good way) and the Chuck Berry cover of "The Promised Land" smacks way too much of easily dashed-of filler. But then you get "Migration" - a perfectly lovely JT song - feels just a symphony to me - he sings - and I agree. For sure there are those who would argue that JT has essentially sung the same tune for 50 years – just in many tiny variations. But I saw him live only ten years ago and it sure didn''t feel like that to me. He was magical – evenly paced – never flash - but classy – steady and true. Re-visiting these albums has been both a joy and on occasion a tiny bit of a disappointment (especially LPs 3 and 4). But I''m certain that fans and newcomers are going to feel lifted up too - the good far outweighing the bad. Shower the people with love, he sang all those years ago. It was a good idea then and it still is now...

I''ve heard bits and pieces of these albums and like what I heard, but never bought them; so, 40+ years after their initial release, I bought this collection. Well, how wonderful they are - and, what more, each album is better than the previous one. The exception is One Man Dog which is very interesting but the weakest of them all (nothing wrong with it, just not so strong). I love Gorilla and In the Pocket most, so am now investing in the next five albums available in a five-for package. There is so much more to Mr Taylor than I thought - lovely songs, vocals and arrangements. The vocal backing is fabulous. The 60''s was a great decade for music; the 70''s was better with Mr Taylor, the wonderful Joni Mitchell, Carly SImon and the rest. Fantastic and never too late to appreciate wonderful music.

I have on vinyl the first two LPs by JT ("Sweet Bay James" & "Mud Slide Slim") but never found myself buying any more subsequent releases. With this remastered CD set of all his six Warner Bros LPs I was looking forward to hearing what I had missed over the years. Sadly my conclusion is not a lot - Taylor may be a renowned guitarist but there is not a lot of evidence on show here of such skills. The greater problem is that over six LPs his pacing and vocal style shows little variety or development. Great if you like his initial recordings and hearing endless variations over the next five years but by CD 3 and definitely CD 4 I was finding it seemed all too much the same. He may be a great songwriter and lyricist but that deadpan and almost monotone delivery just ended up grating with me. Based on other reviews I am clearly in a minority on this one!

This is a really lovely box set, showcasing James'' 6 albums for Warner Bros 1970-''76. Each disc comes in a mini-lp card sleeve and the remastering has been undertaken with maestro Peter Asher at the helm. The result is a clear and mellifluous sound that allows James'' vocals to shine through. While the quality of the albums may be uneven, all provide a pleasant listening experience, in my view. Pricing, at little more £3.00 per disc, is the icing on the cake!

I love these Rhino clamshell collections. They''re such great value I''ve even bought ones covering artists I might not have considered istening to - and been converted! However, I''ve always enjoyed Taylor''s Apple album and the first two Warners records. I wasn''t familiar with the rest of his Warner''s catalogue so here was a way of familiarising meself with that for the cost of just a couple of full price CDs. Very pleased with the purchase. These are all remasters, too. Bargainous!

Description

Between 1970 and 1976, James Taylor released six albums with Warner Bros. Records that became the foundation for his unparalleled career that includes five Grammy® Awards, induction into the Songwriters and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, and more than 100 million records sold worldwide.

-
Each album in the set has been remastered, a process overseen by Peter Asher, who signed Taylor to the Beatles’ Apple Records label in 1968, worked as his manager for 25 years, and originally produced several of these albums.  
-
In the collection’s liner notes Asher writes: “Revisiting these albums several decades later has been revelatory, nostalgic, and exciting. I have heard bits and pieces frequently over the years, of course, but listening with concentration and in detail to each of the original tapes without interruption has been a thrilling luxury.”
-
THE COMPLETE WARNER BROS. ALBUMS: 1970-1976 includes: Sweet Baby James (1970), Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon (1971), One Man Dog (1972), Walking Man (1974), Gorilla (1975), and In the Pocket (1976). 
-
The collection is filled with some of Taylor’s most iconic and beloved songs like “Sweet Baby James,” “Fire And Rain,” “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight,” “Walking Man,” “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You),” “Mexico,” “Shower The People” and “You’ve Got A Friend,” the later which was Taylor’s first #1 hit and earned him his first Grammy Award (Best Male Pop Vocal) in 1971.  
-
The collection also offers up some spectacular deep cuts like his acoustic lullaby “You Can Close Your Eyes” from Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon; the 10-minute song cycle that closes One Dog Man; “Rock ’n’ Roll Music Is Now” from Walking Man, which features backing vocals by Paul and Linda McCartney; and “Don’t Be Sad ’Cause Your Sun Is Down” from In the Pocket, a song Taylor wrote and recorded with Stevie Wonder.
