As a longtime James Taylor fan, this book was exactly what I had been looking for. It is the companion to JT's LIVE album of a couple of years ago. It contains complete sheet music as well as guitar chord blocks for those of us that don't read music. The songs covered in the book are a very good cross section of JT's hits. They are ( in order )
Sweet Baby James Traffic Jam Handy Man Your Smiling Face Secret O' Life Shed a little light Everybody has the blues Steamroller Blues Mexico Millworker Country Road Fire And Rain Shower the People How Sweet it is New Hymn Walking Man Riding on a Railroad Something in the way she moves Sun on the moon Up on the roof Don't let me be lonely tonight She thinks I still care Copperline Slap Leather Only One You make it easy Carolina in my Mind I will Follow You've got a friend That Lonesome Road
Along with all the great sheet music, there are several pages of pictures from the live tour. As you can guess, I highly recommend this book.

Not even close to the original score Oct. 30 2008
By T. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Don't buy this if you want the actual transcription of the performance. It isn't even close. If all you need are the guitar chords, the basic melody notes, and a dumbed-down piano score, then this will suit.
Best "how to" guitar book I've seen! Feb. 8 2009
By susan morrison-vega - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This "how to" book, which lays out the musical notation, tabulature, and lyrics for the James Taylor (Live)CD, is incredibly useful for the vocalist or guitar player who is experienced, but does not have the ability to sing and play without written support. Perfect for guitar players who either can read music or tabs to play. It's good, very good, and provides a great opportunity to sing and play along with the James Taylor (Live)two disc CD. I highly recommend this top quality, 148 page songbook for guitar and voice teachers and students alike. Thirty-three songs.
Great resource from a great artist. April 21 2010
By Kay Irgens - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Pretty new here at my house, but the possibility for both the intermediate as well as the pro, to get the grasp on these songs, are here within range. I bought the video as well. I have to admit that I'm seriously biased in this review, since I've listened to this artist since I was a small kid, always loving his smooth and soulful presentation of whatever material he performs. If you want to learn some great material, as well as getting some really nice guitar approaches to them, get this! He's truly a wonderful artist.
