James Taylor was riding high in the charts back in the early 70’s- this one I haven’t heard played much very often. Backing vocals by Joni Mitchell. James Taylor had 22 Hot 100 hits and 13 Top 40 hits from 1970-97. I am always surprised when I see those numbers it seemed like he had more hits. His only #1- “You’ve Got A Friend’ earlier in 1971.
