Review Expert : Rolling Stone (p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "In the Seventies, James Taylor and Carole King practically invented the sensitive songwriter....It's a nostalgic fest, but a good one." Uncut (p.84) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "This nostalgia-soaked summit finds two of the most celebrated exponents of '70s confessionals returning to the LA scene of their early triumphs..." Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he troubadours are still simpatico on sage, Taylor taking on much of the banter, King content to lay back at the piano...
Misc Note : Personnel: James Taylor (vocals, guitar); Carole King (vocals, piano); Danny Kortchmar (guitar); Russell Kunkel (drums). Audio Mixer: Nathaniel Kunkel. Liner Note Authors: James Taylor ; Carole King. Recording information: Troubadour, Los Angeles, CA (11/2007). Photographers: Jim McCrary; Elissa Kline; Sherry Rayn Barnett; Rob Shanahan; James OMara; Kevin Estrada; Lou Adler; Rudy Guess; Robert Peterson. Carole King and James Taylor reuniting isn't quite a monumental reunion -- they never were an official performing entity, so they never had a falling out, appearing on-stage and on record from time to time since their '70s heyday -- but it is a notable one, particularly when they choose to perform at the Troubadour, the L.A. venue so crucial at the start of their stardom, backed by such fellow veterans of the SoCal singer/songwriter scene as guitarist Danny Kortchmar, bassist Leland Sklar, and drummer Russell Kunkel, musicians who supported them the last time they co-headlined the club back in 1971. All this made their series of shared shows in November 2007 an event, albeit a low-key one. King and Taylor embrace their classics -- it seems that there's not a hit missed between the two of them -- and there's genuine warmth to the whole show that's quite appealing. Perhaps there are no surprises here, but any shock would have run counter to the whole spirit of the evening: this is about basking in both nostalgia and friendship, and if you're on the same wave as the musicians, Live at the Troubadour is enjoyable. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
