Atlantas' Civic Hall was graced with the presence of one of Americas' finest voices and songwriters in James Taylor.

His career is, of course, legendary and likewise, hugely influential, two factors alone that have led to his iconic status that is evident in his retrospective work. Although backed by a formidable band for the 1981 tour to promote the platinum album Dad Loves His Work, Taylors' own essence could have always stood alone achieving equal regard and commanding the utmost in respect. J. D. Southers' valuable input was no doubt a helping hand at this time as it had proved on Taylors' Billboard hit Her Town Too, but it is Taylors' own personal and professional convictions that command his music and as the man said.... 'Dad loves his work'.

Echoes' beautifully presented performance by James Taylor from 1981 has forever been an elusive one, but at last fans of this exceptional artist can, for the first time, enjoy the entire original Atlanta Civic Hall WNEW-FM broadcast from 13th May 1981.
