Synopsis

In this major biography, the late Timothy White explores both the career and the troubled personal journey of the legendary singer-songwriter. Rich with insights from Paul McCartney, Carly Simon, Sting, Danny 'Kootch' Kortchmar, the entire Taylor family and many other key figures around James Taylor and his music. Dispelling myth and rumour, Long Ago and Far Away examines the roots of Taylor's mental anguish and his recurring battles with heroin and alcohol. This is an epic family history, an exploration of the real stories behind Fire and Rain and the rest of the songs, as well as a frank account of Taylor's days on the Apple record label, the financial disaster of his Greatest Hits album deal and the deaths and divorces that have haunted his life. This edition has been updated by his friend and former Rolling Stone comrade Mitch Glazer and includes an epilogue about the memorial concerts for Timothy that James Taylor helped organise. The book includes many rare photos and an extensive discography and bibliography.
