1970 (5/5)

The final song in this mini series hasn't just popped into my head, its been kipping in the attic ever since my son was born. Sweet Baby James is 50% cowboy song, 50% lullaby, 100% immaculate. There may well have been better songs written than this; but not many. Even its writer, James Taylor, said it's the song he's most proud of. I can't disagree with that.

James Taylor: Sweet Baby James (1970)


  1. That is one very cute-looking sweetie (and I'm not referring to Mr Taylor). Presumably your own sweet baby James?

    1. It is! James was 30 last month; imagine how old that makes me feel.
