    Lee stuck with JT until “Never Die Young”. Danny and Russ should have, too.

    I really had no idea James Taylor music was like this. I thought it was just “carolina in my mind” and “how sweet it is”. Dang I have really missing out !

    I like the fact that during the solos the other musicians are watching the soloist and smiling. They look like they were having fun on stage.

    @Grendelmonster8u: Right on, this show was a record crowd at Blossom at the time, close to 20,000ish at an outdoor venue just packed to the gills.

    Linda Rondstat used a lot of members of the band that JT put together, and yeah they wailed with her too.

    JT and the musician lineup from the perfect dream…what a band..

  15. 1PhilHarmonic says:

    They had some fun that night

    The [Flag] tour was drawing well. At Pine Knob, JT was about to play for his third of four successive sell-out crowds (12k per night) that were wildly enthusiastic. Honest-to-goodness rock & roll made up a healthy portion of the performance, spurred by Kortchmar and Wachtel’s thick, punchy rhythm guitar textures. And Taylor, who more than any other singer has been branded with the term “mellow,” belted out the songs with fire and closed each hard number with (ctnd…)

    I was absolutely at this show at Blossom. I was sold down the river to be a musician this night…bought it lock, stock and barrel.
