Music background, songs and collaborations

Although his first album failed to launch his music career, his second album “Sweet Baby James” helped him gain recognition. This album contains Taylor’s best known song “Fire and Rain” – both the song and the album reached number three in their respective chart categories.
His songs “You’ve Got a Friend” and “Shower the People” boosted his popularity even more. An album titled “James Taylor’s Greatest Hits” has also been a huge success – it has sold more than ten million copies and received diamond certification.
James Taylor has had the opportunity to work with iconic rock stars such as the Beatles, Elton John and Sting. He has also collaborated with his close friend Carole King on numerous albums.
