Original Notes:

James Taylor is the kind of person I always thought the word folksinger referred to. He writes and sings songs that are reflections of his own life, and performs in them in his own style. All of his performances are marked by an eloquent simplicity. Mr. Taylor is not kicking out any jams. He seems to be more interested in soothing his troubled mind. In the process he will doubtless soothe a good many heads besides his own.

Taylor’s music is a mix between country, blues, and some antique folk styles. Whichever idiom he is leaning on in any particular song, both his lyrics and his voice flow with a lyricism that connotes a deeply personal style. Taylor is aware of his mastery of his material and therefore tends to understate things. His reserve is a sign of his maturity. He sings with resonance and plays with grace; he refuses to let himself get lost in anything that obscures his identity as an artist.

  2. Led Zeppelin appeared on BBC Radio’s Top Gear
    14 Apr 1969
    This was probably the first Led Zeppelin version of Dazed & Confused recorded for BBC radio, and certainly the first audition panel for Led Zeppelin. The setlist is:

    I Can’t Quit You Baby
    Communication Breakdown
    Dazed & Confused

    The trial broadcast was sent to the production panel, here it is.

    By Jimmy Page on Apr 14, 2022

  3. Nice writing!
    James always reminded me of a Clarinet. He has the same wonderful sonorous quality, a slightly nasal buzz and perfect pitch. After his first few albums his Influences widened quite a lot: Brazilian and Jazz are also a solid part of James’ stable.

  4. Rumor has it James gots a Big Un

    By U L E on Apr 14, 2022

    By Paul on Apr 14, 2022

  7. So James has a foot long dik . That pales in comparison to Uncle Milte who was packing close to a two footer .

    By Scaromouch on Apr 14, 2022

  8. Who starts these rumors?

    By Jocko P on Apr 14, 2022

    By T J on Apr 14, 2022

  16. Paul : Since those pervos or morons or both, started posting, those interested in music hardly ever comment. Bigozine should do something about all this stupid filth but unfortunately they don’t give a damn.

    By Theo on Apr 14, 2022

  17. I think it is only one moron who suffers with multiple lack of personality disorder. My chief worry has always been that one of its idiotic comments will attract the wrong sort of attention and the subsequent shutting down of the site.

    By Bev on Apr 14, 2022

  18. Hi Theo and Paul, I think we ought to get a room, as we all sound like we are gonna cry in a minute, cry in a minute, we’re gonna cry in a minute!

    By Bev on Apr 14, 2022

  19. Shut the fuck up Paul and Theo. Both of you are 2 fucking homos. We loves to talk bout coc ks pricks, dic ks ballsacs, shaft head girth. Thats good shit to discuss. We wants this site to be all homos like me Derriere, Nelson Anti and the rest of us fags

    By HHH on Apr 14, 2022

  20. It’s multiple morons , not just one or two . No one has that much free time on their hands . Frankly I laugh at these fools . I just mainly come for the music , not the comments .

    By Thomas on Apr 15, 2022

  21. I now notice Asian writings with the trolls . So it’s like a cancer that keeps growing.

    By Thomas on Apr 15, 2022

  22. Your a real dic khead Thomas. Suck my manet dicwad. You probably jag off to all the gay comments. All the haters out there need to shut the fuck up and ram a dildoe up their poop chute. Then do what I do. Suck on a cucumber or a Boar Heads sausage and pretend its a coc k.

    By HHH on Apr 15, 2022

  23. Thomas
    True, morons can’t spoil the music, no matter how disgusting they can become, but I ‘d rather they went to some place else. I wonder why they chose a music site to do this.

    By Theo on Apr 15, 2022

  24. HHH is talking in third person again and calling himself Thomas!

    What a pathetic fucking pants shitting asshole loser jagoff!

    By Derrick on Apr 15, 2022

  25. Most music blogs review comments before posting them . So many roads to ease my soul , guitars 101, BnB Chronicles etc . You never hear moronic comments on those sites .

    By Paul on Apr 15, 2022

  26. I’m for free speech though , against censorship, maybe it’s a good thing to know how many wackos there are out there . I don’t know what the right answer is .

    By Paul on Apr 15, 2022

  27. paul , theo and bev sounds like they gots little uns .

    By Porn Starr on Apr 15, 2022

  28. The name stealers as HHH calls them should get what Joe PESHIEEE got in Casino

    By T J on Apr 15, 2022

  29. Paul you sound like a low-level pimp who sells his wife to nigger men. I cant blame you for feeling the way you do. You have a needledik, no one wants to fuck you and you jagoff to kiddie porn watching lil boys blow each other

    By HHH on Apr 15, 2022

  30. Paul you sound like a low-level pimp who sells his wife to nigger men. I cant blame you for feeling the way you do. You have a needledik, no one wants to fuck you and you jagoff to kiddie porn watching lil boys blow each other

    By Derrick on Apr 15, 2022

  31. However, I am sure if the blogs mentioned above received the sort of comments that appear on this site then they would immediately be deleted by a moderator.
    It’s just that big0 can’t be bothered I reckon.

    By Paul on Apr 15, 2022

  32. Paul you sound like a toothless white trash redneck , I reckon….LOL..Get the fuck off my website…. WE only wants gays, faggot, quiffs, rim job specialists, glory hole pros like me and pedohiles and kiddie porn lovers

    By Derrick on Apr 15, 2022

  33. Paul
    I am all for free speech too, especially since I have experienced the deprivation of it in my youth. These people, whatever they are, have the right to talk about “big uns” and such and I am sure that there are many sites in the internet which can accommodate their interests. But this is a music site. And I don’t think that a moderator to protect its dignity, would harm the principle of free speech.

    By Theo on Apr 16, 2022

  34. Theo, Paul, Thomas - haven’t you realised that unless you are a racist or profess an interest of a gay sort in the muscle of love, or are Swappy, you ain’t gonna get traction on here. If you can’t get with the program you’ll never be U L E’s friend

    By The zookeeper on Apr 16, 2022

  35. ACHTUNG JUDEN

    SIEG HEIL
    SEIG HEIL

    By The AntiChrist on Apr 16, 2022

  36. Long Live The KKK

    Lynch The Niggas

    Brink Back Jim Crow

    Bring back Bull Connor and George Wallace

    Bring back the German Shepherds and the firehoses

    By Derrick on Apr 16, 2022

  37. Niggas need to know their place

    Leave our white women alone

    Go back to Africa

    By Derrick on Apr 16, 2022

  38. Let me shit my pants in peace

    Let me walk around with brown stains on my pants

    Let me defecate in public

    Let me smear feces on Whopper Swapper face

    Let me crap on my lawn with my dog

    By HHH on Apr 16, 2022

  39. I wants to fornicate with lil boys in public

    I wants to jagoff in public

    I wants to visit every gloryhole in the USA

    I wants to dress like a women and prostitute myself

    I wanna give rabbis blowjobs in their cars

    By U L E on Apr 16, 2022

  40. Me thinks Paul, Theo, Thomas and zookeeper are all homos. They probably have jagoff contests to see who squirts the farthest. So pathetic and they talks about me

    By U L E on Apr 16, 2022

  41. These morons just keep going at it nonstop. There has to be more than one knuckle dragging troll. There gots to be. No one has that much time on their hands

    By Paul on Apr 16, 2022

  42. NOBODY gives a shit about your racist ranting. If you really hate - go out and do something - go lynch someone if you are so bent on it. You won’t because you are full of shit. All talk and NO action. How pathetic.

  43. Inciting a hate crime IS A CRIME.
