Blanc comme la pureté, ou n'apparaît sur la pochette que les titres de la compil', ce disque est aussi indispensable que celui des Beatles qui avait la même particularité dans sa représentativité extérieure. Celui qui c'est fait une spécialité dans les belles ballades intimistes nous propose une brève, mais fructueuse sélection de ses compositions s'étalants de 68 à 76. Pas mal de folk, un peu de blues, quelques intermèdes de country. Et des classiques qui animent à jamais la mémoire collective d'amateurs de titres d'écrivants des grands espaces de solitudes, d'amours controversés dans ses doutes et ses fragilité et ou l'amitié y a aussi une part bien imbriqué. La guitare y est souvent "gentiment" encadré par des instruments respirant la simplicité et la discrétion pour l'accompagner (Bass, steel, fiddle, percussion tranquille, piano docile, batterie apaisée). Les superbes en textes, mélodies et limpidité : "Something in the way she moves", "Carolina in my mind", "Sweet baby James", "Country road", le poignant "Fire and rain", sur la tragédie du suicide d'un ami. Comment ne pas citer aussi : "You've got a friend", l'une des plus belles chansons de l'histoire de ce folk, emprunté à son ami Carole King ("Si le ciel au dessus de toi se couvre de nuage noir, si le vent du Nord souffle un peu fort, ferme les yeux et pense à moi, bientôt je serais là, pour faire le jour sur tes mauvais chagrins"), aussi le douloureux "Don't let me be lonely tonight", avec son titre qui veut à lui seul tout dire.Lire la suite ›

It is interesting to note that Carole King plays piano on the three songs before James Taylor does his excellent cover of her "You've Got a Friend" on this collection of his best mellow rock songs. Joni Mitchell does background vocals on that song, and you will find Graham Nash & David Crosby doing vocal harmonies on "Mexico," Carly Simon doing the honors on "Shower the People," and David Sanborn playing Saxophone on "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)," the only other song on the album that Taylor did not write; it was an early Sixties song that certainly is in a completely different tone from everything else here.
This album marked the end of Taylor's contract with Warner Brothers, by which point he had eight Top 40 hits, six of which were collected on this album: "Fire and Rain" (#3), "Country Road" (#37), "You've Got a Friend" (#1), "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" (#14), "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)" (#5), and "Shower the People" (#22). I find that for me the quintessential song of an artist is usually not going to be one of their big hits and for James Taylor I would suggest that song is "Country Road," which features his best acoustic guitar work and some nice vocalization at the end. A couple of these songs, "Something In the Way She Moves" and "Carolina In My Mind" were re-recorded for this 1976 album, so purists should be aware of that fact. But then, purists would already have "Mudslide Slim And The Blue Horizon," "Walking Man," and the rest of the James Taylor discography.

Bien sûr c'est une compil ! Pour ceux qui, comme moi, essaient de compléter la collection, ce CD n'a pas un gros intérêt mais...il est quand même super ! En tout cas, ceux qui ne possèdent aucun CD de James doivent se le procurer illico ! En plus, il est à un prix abordable. Et normalement, vous allez avoir envie de posséder les albums studios. Un conseil pour les garçons : mettez ce CD sur votre platine si vous recevez une fille, elle va aussitôt craquer !

Tous ses tubes des années 70 (en fait de 1969 à 1976) sont rassemblés sur cet album légendaire, qui comprend Sweet Baby James, You've Got A Friend et tant d'autres. On note aussi une version "live" de Steamroller, un classique du blues. Incontournable pour aborder l'immense carrière du Francis Cabrel américain.

HASH(0x977ace4c) étoiles sur 5 Great for the young at heart 26 janvier 2000
Par Jason - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
As a 14 year old boy, i am expected to listen to Lymp Bizcuit and the terrible music produced today. What a refreshing type of music James Taylor has created; like no other type around, JT's music provides a soothing sound everytime I listen to it. When I'm down it cheers me up. When im too excited it calms me down. It is the greatest CD ever created. With great hits such as "You've Got A Friend", "How Sweet It Is(To Be Loved By You)", "Carolina On My Mind", and "Fire and Rain", James Taylor's Greatest Hits is a must for anyone.

HASH(0x977acdd4) étoiles sur 5 great--as far as it goes, that is (three and one-half stars) 6 mai 2008
Par Matthew G. Sherwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
James Taylor Greatest Hits is a good retrospective even though at twelve songs I think it's a bit too short. They should have added a song or two; but what we do get is excellent material. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is tastefully done.

"Something In The Way She Moves" has a very pretty melody and the guitar and James' singing carry the bulk of the melody. This song is a sweet one that has traces of folk music in it; and the string instruments are very well placed into the musical arrangement. "Carolina In My Mind" features James Taylor front and center--and that's OK with me! The melody is very solid and James sings this with all his heart and soul. Excellent! James' voice is very rich and full of masculine warmth; his uncanny sense of timing enhances his performance even further.

"Fire And Rain" tugs at my heartstrings whenever I hear this torch song; it's all very beautiful and James sings this passionately. James carries this tune well and the piano works well for this love ballad. "Country Road" again places James right in the spotlight--and he doesn't waste a minuet! James delivers "Country Road" with panache and this impresses me greatly. The slight twist of folk and country music elements enhances the natural beauty of "Country Road."

"You've Got A Friend" is probably my very favorite song on this CD; James delivers this flawlessly and the emotion again tugs at my heartstrings because James sings of unconditional and undying love and friendship. The guitar carries the melody well but the other instruments help out, too. James also handles tempo changes effortlessly--although we know that it really wasn't so easy; James could make it seem easy because he is so talented.

"How Sweet It Is (To be Loved By You)" has a pop music flavor to it; and I can never tire of hearing James Taylor singing this fine tune! The melody stuns me with its beauty and there's no wonder why this was a huge hit for James. Great! "How Sweet It Is (To be Loved By You)" is clearly a major highlight of this album. In addition, James Taylor does a great job on "Shower The People;" this touching love song stresses the importance of showing your special people just how much you really love them.

The CD also ends very strong with James Taylor performing "Steamroller." "Steamroller" is a live track that James carries perfectly and his adoring audience loves every minute of it!

James Taylor fans will want this CD if they don't already have these songs in their collections. Because this album is so short it may be best suited for the casual fan who doesn't care to delve too deep into James Taylor's work. I have to take off one and ½ stars to make this a three and ½ star review because the CD is just too short to be called a "greatest hits" collection.

HASH(0x97876390) étoiles sur 5 Rock-a-bye, Sweet Baby James 19 avril 2010
Par Tim Brough - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
When James Taylor wrapped up his years with Warner Brothers records in 1976, that label promptly issued a greatest hits CD that remains one of the label's biggest sellers. Issued one of the RIAA's earliest "Diamond" certifications, this album has sold over ten million copies and remains available to this day. It's a time-capsule of Taylor's early work, spotlighting the years of sensitive singer-songwriters and his calm, soothing voice.

Staring with re-recorded versions of his Apple Records songs "Carolina In My Mind" and "Something In The Way She Moves" and a previously unreleased live version of "Steamroller Blues," this was Taylor before he became a staple on the summer festival circuit and a cover-er of oldies (although his version of "How Sweet It Is" is included here). There's a lot to be said for the simple pleasures of this collection, be it the warm reading of Carole King's "You've Got a Friend" (with Joni Mitchell on back-up vocals, it won Taylor his first Grammy) or the confessional "Fire and Rain."

After this, Taylor would be come more the studious professional that intimate singer-songwriter, continuing to make solid, if predictable soft-rock albums for CBS. There are two best of's since this one, a Columbia round-up on James Taylor's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 and a full on retrospective on The Best of James Taylor (both labels represented, but heavy on the Warners years). The biggest gripe is that this CD has yet to receive a proper remastering, but for the money, it's James Taylor at his best.

This is a great CD. Makes me mellow and makes me remember the past. Sometimes best of albums are the best buy. Get this one. And I do not personally know cydneyday but I kinda like her reviews. I read her profile after that nasty comment from some reviewer. He must not get it. I like her personal touches not just saying whats on the cd or in the book. She seems okay to me. Stay mellow and buy James Taylor today.

Par David Hogan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I really haven't much to add to the reviews already written about this wonderful album. I guess what I really love the most about JT's Greatest Hits is that it's one album my Dad and I both really enjoyed. Even though he and I both loved music, there were very few artists we agreed on, and James Taylor was one of them. At the one JT concert I was fortunate enough to attend, there were people from all walks of life just lost in the music. He opened with "Something in the Way She Moves" (as this album does) unaccompanied on acoustic guitar, an excellent rendition of my personal favorite Taylor song. The songlist was essentially: songs from 'Hourglass'; three songs from the album "JT" (Handy Man, Secret of Life, and Your Smiling Face, for anyone interested), and all twelve songs from this recording. All together, the best concert I've ever attended.
There was one review I read which asserted that anyone who had the "James Taylor Live" double CD did not need to purchase this album because every song on 'Hits' was on 'Live' as well. While the latter statement is true, Greatest Hits is still very essential. At least for me, the original studio version of "Fire and Rain" is much more stirring than the 90's live version. I think that's because the studio version was recorded much closer to the event which was the impetus for the song. Also, the version of 'Steamroller' on Hits is THE definitive version of that song. Now that JT has gotten older, his voice has actually gotten better in my opinion. But that notwithstanding, he's never, EVER going to do a better live version of Steamroller than the one on 'Greatest Hits'.
