This delightful James Taylor concert from 1976, broadcast live in FM stereo from Pennsylvanias legendary Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh, admirably displays the cream of the artists sublime songwriting abilities in the early-to-mid 1970s, as well as highlighting his skills as one of the most consummate performers around at the time. Sharing the stage with the one-man-band that is David Lindley, the shows big, abounding but largely acoustic sound is superbly reproduced in crystal clear quality on this CD. Featuring a fine selection of self penned numbers - augmented by a solitary cover all taken from James first eight albums, this recording also serves as a reminder of how productive Taylor was during this era, delivering an album a year in the first decade of his career.
