Carole King & James Taylor

Live At The Troubadour - Hear Music HRM-32053 (CD+DVD Region 0)

A trend I have no complaints about is that of live CDs which come with a DVD of the same concert, viz. McCartney in NYC, Steve Stills, etc. As I first saw King and Taylor together nearly 40 years ago, this set brought a lump to my throat: for baby boomers, there’s no more comfortable pair of slippers. They’re simply the gentlest, warmest pair of singer-songwriters imaginable, they clearly adore each other, and they deliver a combined self-penned 15 classics. The DVD gives us the whole set in widescreen, with DTS and Dolby 5.1, with a longer playing time due to bits of commentary. Sublime music, and a reminder: yes, we once were this happy.
