Don't be fooled by the cover...

"For fans of James Taylor, this is an odd looking album. The cover art is bright, the pictures inside are less than flattering, and the general look of it seems at odds with the warm, country roads type feel of J.T.'s music. Even the music is a little more electric than usual. But don't dismiss this album so quickly. Even the songs that don't seem right on the first listen will grow on you.
It's got the sweet, mellow tunes we've all come to know and love (Millworker, Chanson Francaise), some great mid-tempo stuff (B.S.U.R., a re-working of Rainy Day Man), classic covers (Carole King's 'Up On The Roof' and an interesting version of the Beatles 'Day Tripper'), and some originals that rock a little more than usual (Company Man, I Will Not Lie For You).
This is definitely a different kind of J.T. album, but it still has some great stuff on it. I recommend it highly."

"Flag is a release by James Taylor that is not readily available elsewhere.Songs include "I Will Not Lie for You, Company Man, and others. I was able to purchase this item, brand new still in the wrapper. Extremely pleased and would recommend to anyone who is a fan of James Taylor."
