None Better

Wife and I experienced a piece of pure heaven last night. We attended James Taylor's and Carole King's concert in Nashville, part of the "Troubador Reunion" tour.

Although I know every generation thinks the music they listened to in their formative years is the best ever, I challenge anyone to say/think it gets any better than this.

The tunes took me back, of course. Whether it was the radio at summer Boy Scout camp, my bedroom or in the car-- or wearing out the turntable with JT"s Great Hits and Carole King's "Tapestry" -- so many of their songs were the ones that defined my youth and have stayed with me.

"It's Too Late."

"So Far Away."

"Sweet Baby James."

"You've Got a Friend."

"Way Over Yonder."

"Carolina in My Mind."

"Natural Woman."

"Shower the People."


And the hits just keep on coming. You know them, too.

Thanks, my old friends, for a great time last night. Thanks for continuing to ply your trade and give the gift of your amazing talent.

"You Are My Only One" is my favorite!

I'm unbelievably jealous right now. And I feel just as badly about that as I do the stinking undo key on the solitaire game. Which I decided not to play any more.
