Nothing impacted me more during the 70's like 'Fire and Rain'. I was working towards a degree in Psychology and had worked in a locked ward at a local mental hospital. This song came to me during that time and helped me to realise that maybe Clinical Psychology was not the answer to life's troubles. I have since found that answer to life's troubles and it is the best answer. All of James Taylor's songs on this album are my favourites. I have been blessed listening to them from time to time over the years. Forgot to add that James Taylor survived mental illness and wrote some of the most brilliant gentle songs of all time.

Your comment about Mexicans in Mexico making Fender guitars and Mexicans (re-defined as Latinos in the US) making Fender guitars in Corona, CA made me laugh. So true! Frankly I like the Mexi-Strat. Weird because I usually diss the Hecho in Mexico guitars. I would say I liked it because it had a buttery smoothness that I liked. The Japanese made one (your favourite guitar as you've described in your vid on Elixer strings (thanks so much for that as I am a big fan of Elixer strings but have always gotten the Nanoweb version - I will definitely buy the Polyweb version) and the American Strat sounded a bit brighter and therefore less mellow. Doesn't make them bad guitars at all. I would buy a Japanese version though my bias is still towards the American made Strats. Someone said that it is not the expense of the guitar you play that makes you a great guitarist rather it is your playing capability that makes you a great guitarist. You made all the guitars sound good, dude.

Love both these guitarists. Listened to Keb before I ever heard of Phil but started to get into Phil's guitar playing a few years ago. Just saw Phil perform live and think he is one of the most genuinely awesome and nice performers around.

Metrics, the bane of humanity! I have worked in the corporate world for too long. When I started hearing the term metrics whilst I was working at a large American corporation and started to have the demanding and impersonal term of 'metrics' we need metrics to defend our programme thrown at me, I heard a term that was like the sound of the death knell. Students are NOT automatons! Stop thinking in terms of statistics! Remember the book, 'How to Lie with Statistics'.

Listened to it many times during the early 70's. Love it to the full extent. One of the great albums during the 70's.

I have such respect for this man! He speaks for all of us who were born in the 50's. A great actor!
