James Taylor - Voice Your Choice

James Taylor was born March 12, 1949 in Boston, Massachusetts, into a very musical family. His siblings, Kate, Alex and Livingston were also recording artists. His first recording contract with with The Beatles' Apple Records no less! Released in 1969 and reissued in 1970, Carolina On My Mind only did marginally well.His fortunes changed when he signed with Warner Bros. Records in the US and his career took off. Between 1969 and 1979, he appeared on the charts a total of 18 times, including 5 visits to the Top Ten and two Gold Records.

Treasure Island Oldies is pleased to present James Taylor with two of his many hits. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Fire And Rain or You've Got A Friend. I'll play the winning song on next week's show.
