There are so many James Taylor’s songs I love but here are two of my favorites to tide you over while I’m gone to Carolina in the flesh to help our daughter move.   James and Livingston were still in Chapel Hill when I went there, and his Daddy was still at the Med school.  And every time I hear  ‘Carolina in my Mind’  I get homesick and I’d rather be home and well.  Thank you James for so many wonderful ballads in the North Carolina folk ballad tradition.  Thanks James for letting your hair go, so you had more room in your noggin and on your mind for all those great songs.
