James’s Taylor’s 11th album was actually named Dad Loves His Work as a reply to an ultimatum from Taylor’s then wife, Carly Simon, who demanded he stop the relentless touring and recording to spend more time with his family. While the opening tune “Hard Times” sounds airy and optimistic, the lyrics reveal a relationship reaching its irreparable end. Similarly, “Her Town Too” (a collaboration/duet with J.D. Souther) contrasts a light and breezy melody with the sad details of their failed marriage as Taylor sings, “Well people got used to seeing them both together/ But now he’s gone and life goes on/ Nothing lasts forever/ She gets the house and the garden.” Taylor picked up the pace with “Stand and Fight” a tune that put a little bit of rock back in his folk-rock with some accompanying gospel-tinged backing vocals. “Summer’s Here” is another standout as it muses on the simple things about Californians’ favorite season, grooving on a free and easy vibe with a feel-good mix of Rhodes jazz piano and Hammond organ playing under a smile-inducing harmonica solo.
