Musical TBT: You Can Close Your Eyes

#TBT to 1971, the year Mud Slide Slim and The Blue Horizon was released and this song was on it. It has gone through many incarnations over the years, covered by everyone from Linda Ronstadt to Eddie Vedder. I would argue that it has always sounded best coming from the mouth of James himself!

In July 2007, Taylor teamed up with television producer Don Mischer to produce "One Man Band". The album was recorded at the magnificently restored Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Massachusetts and included this song.
