1975's, Gorilla is James Taylor's sixth album and in many ways it showcases his
electric, lighter side. Taylor's unique blend of well-crafted songs, meticulous
production and heartfelt singing are all in abundance here on Gorilla. Several
chart-topping singles came out of the album including "Mexico" and Taylor's take
on Motown's "How Sweet It Is (to be loved by you)" thrust the introspective
balladeer into the role of hit-making cover artist.
The two big Billboard hits from this album shouldn't overshadow some other true
classic James Taylor performances and compositions on Gorilla, such as "Music,"
"Fool to Care," "Lighthouse" and "Wandering" may very well be the most beautiful
song ever created. The lush mini-suite "Love Songs" opens with a guitar and
clarinet duet and finds James moving ever so discreetly into Gershwin territory.
In this period of JT's creativity he was surrounded by a busy and fulfilling
musical landscape where Philly Soul, Motown, funk and country rock were all over
the charts and radio stations across the nation and he was more then willing to
harness all of this into his own signature sound. Gorilla is a beautiful mature
album that contains some very good easy listening soft rock music and Taylor is
backed up by some of the greatest musicians around, like Graham Nash,
David Crosby, Carly Simon, Randy Newman, David Sanborn,
David Grisman, Lowell George and Linda Ronstadt. Not a bad
bunch to have on your album!
