Synopsis

Amazon.com
Livingston Taylor will forever be James Taylor's younger brother, and that's too bad. It keeps him from being recognized as the talent he is in his own right--and he's a lot more entertaining in my book than that insidious, insipid James. Carolina Day is a fine sampling of Livingston's laid-back, sweetly melodic music, from his earliest Jon Landau-produced work to his brief late-'70s chart run. Throughout the album, his subtle, honey-tinged voice decorates sharp tunes like "I'll Come Running" and "Get Out of Bed." One grumpy caveat, though: It's a shame that Taylor's best song, the lovely "In My Reply" from his self-titled debut, is not included here. --Michael Ruby

Remember when the music......

(5 out of 5 stars)

"was something you could actually hear above the racket that hides most of today's so-called music.This is not simply a Greatest Hits collection, but one that is well worth 10 times what it costs. Although his slow melodic tunes are wonderful, he's much more than that. One of my favorites, Pajamas, is a cute, springy, jumpy yet certainly not juvenile number and if any of today's artists have the intelligence to remake that, I'll buy all his CD's. And that includes Nirvana. Yeah right. In my dreams. Maybe "Howl At The Moon." When they get an IQ over 20.Believe me, you spend $14 for this and you have a wonderful investment.Although I would hardly call his genius brother James insipid, Livingston is at least as good as James, if not better.If it is true that alternative rock numbs one's brain, listen to this and experience healing, something like when you've smoked for 40 years and suddenly quit.From I Will Be In Love With You to First Time Love this is a CD not to be missed."
Excellent Retrospective

"This album is an excellent retrospective of one of pop music's longest, yet most hidden, careers. Livingston Taylor is more than James' brother; he is a versatile musician who is a much more gifted entertainer. Both have thier place in pop music history. Hopefully this release will create a lot of new fans for one of pop music's hidden talents."
The way music is meant to be....

"If you like James Taylor you'll equally love his brother Livingston. Their singing styles are identical. One has to believe it's a fluke of genetics than imitation. His voice and music is sweet and mellow. The plus to not being familar with him is that you get a "born-again" experience of returning to a time when great music was being release almost daily.I can assure you on my word as a gentleman and a Brazilian this CD will be amoungst the more cheerished in your collection."
