CD Of The Week: James Taylor's 'Before This World'

james.jpg

James Taylor’s ‘Before This World’ is his 17th studio record, and his first #1 record on the Billboard charts.  These new songs were written over the last 2 years in a self –imposed seclusion in a friend’s apartment in Rhode Island.  James has said that he didn’t feel he could write a new song unless he had an isolated, distraction-free environment in which to write.  Recorded at his home studio, ‘Before This World’ was worth the 13 year wait since ‘October Road’ in 2002.   Tune in to High Plains Morning this week to hear 'Before This World' in it's entirety. 

Mike Fuller remains our station's favorite prodigal son. Former Music Director of High Plains Public Radio, and host of High Plains Morning (2010-2015), he has returned to HPPR with a new show called What The Folk?—a signature mix of folk, roots, Americana, and more—woven together by a unifying theme. Tune in every Saturday night at 7pm CT for a two-hour mix that could only come from the man himself.
