2002's October Road is the last album James Taylor released of original music. This has been a long time coming. I love listening to James Taylor. It brings back many fond memories for me.

James Taylor is 67 years old now and has been in the music business for almost 50 years. I would call that successful. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.

James Taylor was a little out of practice writing lyrics for his new album of originals but in the end it all worked out. He has been working on this album for some time now and also released an album of cover tunes in 2008 titled "Covers."

James Taylor's new album of original songs titled Before This World is due out June 16. I can't wait. I think I want the actual CD. Do they still make them or do I have to download it to my computer?
