    Every single freakin' track is a winner. I swear, what an amazing selection of James Taylor's best work, assembled on this album.
    I grabbed a near mint copy for $3. Score!

    The sound is amazing, very realistic, and pressing is great. Recommended.

      Great master! Sounds crisp and clear. Miss few of my favorite tracks but overall good introduction to James Taylor catalog.
