PLAY: Carole King & James Taylor, "Live at the Troubadour" [VIDEO]

James Taylor and Carole King first performed together in 1970 at The Troubadour. The West Hollywood club launched the careers of Elton John, Randy Newman, Linda Ronstadt, and a million other folkies. The old friends and collaborators swore they'd get back together one day. Forty years later they made good on the promise. The song list alone is mind-boggling: "I Feel the Earth Move," "Fire and Rain," "So Far Away," "Country Road," "You've Got a Friend," and ten others you know by heart. "Live at the Troubadour" is as nostalgic as nostalgia can get. It's also some of the best American songs ever written. Go head, hear 'em one more time.

    Excellent! I must say that in my youth I remembered their songs, and vaguely their voices. It was like knowing the songs but not knowing who was singing them, but my exposure was limited. I've started collecting James Taylor now and love his music, and I do recognize his voice from long ago. They are both great song writers. It's sweet going down memory lane. They've got my vote.
