James Taylor is my favorite recording artist. Me and him go way back.. too many years for me to be specific, haha. Yesterday I received an e-mail from him! Well, it said it was from him but really it was his November newsletter and it focused on his new CD/DVD release (released today, in fact), One Man Band.
There was a link to his website, where there was more information about the new release, as well as an audio and a video sample. Unfortunately either someone goofed up the audio recording or something is wrong with my computer because when I clicked on the “play” button, it played back at double the speed and sounded like Alvin and the Chipmunks.
Thankfully the video sample was fine. If you’re a James Taylor fan, click on the link and check it out. He performs a very interesting version of “Slap Leather” and it is worth watching if just to see the drum machine he uses. Note: it took quite a while for the page to load, at least for me, so you may have to be patient. There's also a nice video on Amazon's product page that introduces the DVD.
What does this have to do with wine? Well, as Chateau Petrogasm does a wine review with pictures, I’d say you can do the same with music, too.
I love good wine and I love James Taylor. I haven’t found it yet, but I think that my perfect wine would be like sitting back and being carried away listening to Mr. Taylor, enjoying an integral part of the soundtrack of my life and reminiscing about the very best parts. One of these days I hope to tell you that I’ve found that wine.
