Just got back from the James Taylor concert at the Molson Amphitheatre.

Fabulous. Played some new stuff from "October Road" along with all the great Oldies:..Carolina, Fire and Rain, Mexico, How Sweet it is, Steamroller, You've got a friend.

After three encores Jmaes returned with his guitar and to a hushed crowd of 15.000 he ended the night with the soulful "Sweet Baby James"

It was nice to see Toronto out again...A good time was had by all

Funny, his song "Fire and Rain" had been running through my head since Rebecca's sad story of her brother:

Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Suzanne, the plans they made made put an end to you
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
I just can't remember who to send it to

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Won't you look down upon me Jesus
You got to help me make a stand
You just got to see me through another day
My body's achin' and my time is at hand
And I won't make it any other way

Oh I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Been walkin' my mind to an easy time
My back turned towards the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows
It'll turn your head around
Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line
To talk about things to come
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you, baby, one more time again now
Thought I'd see you one more time again
There's just a few things comin' my way this time around now
Thought I'd see you, thought I'd see you
Fire and rain

I'm glad to see he's still performing. He has been in and out of severe depression and multiple addiction problems to self-medicate for same. Good to see he seems to be doing ok these days.
