James Taylor made his music debut all those years back in the late 1960's – 70's during the folk revival time. Taylor began to write the first bulk of his well known material including "Carolina in My Mind", as he rehearsed with his brand new backing band… In this time James recorded what would become his first album from July to October 1968, at Trident Studios, at the same time the Beatles were recording The White Album – a fascinating and iconic time for music history.
But it wasn't until the following year that things would truly kick off for the singer/songwriter, in December 1969, James Taylor moved to California to record his second album "Sweet Baby James," and begun to collaborate with fellow musician Carole King. In 1970 the record broke the mainstream, particularly with the heartfelt raw single "Fire and Rain," written about his personal and troubled experiences with overcoming his drug habit.
This incredible release crafted him a career that has been a success up until today – almost 50 years!
