James Taylor and Stevie Wonder Classics Get Limited Edition Reissues (A Top Story)

On Wednesday James Taylor and Stevie Wonder Classics Get Limited Edition Reissues was a top story. Here is the recap: (Sub) This week saw the release of 24-Karat Gold CD reissues of James Taylor's 1971 album Mud Slide Slim And The Blue Horizon and Stevie Wonder's 1973 Innervisions.

Both recordings will be available as limited, numbered editions that will be sold through online and brick-and-mortar retailers alike; however, Wonder's groundbreaking Innervisions will be limited to a run of 3000 units due to contractual restrictions, rather than the company's usual run of 5000 units.

Mud Slide Slim And The Blue Horizon was Taylor's third album, following his 1986 Apple Records debut and the 1970 Warner Bros. LP, Sweet Baby James, which was his commercial breakthrough and the record that, with Carole King's Tapestry, ignited the singer-songwriter movement. The LP proved as popular as its predecessor, ascending to No.2 on Billboard's chart, where it remained for four weeks (its overall chart stay was just under a year). Taylor took home a Grammy in 1972 for Best Male Vocal Performance for Mud Slide Slim's chart-topping single, his rendition of Carole King's "You've Got a Friend," which was also named Song of the Year. Also included were the To -40 hit "Long Ago and Far Away" (which features King on piano), the country lament "Hey Mister, That's Me Up on the Jukebox" and the ballad "You Can Close Your Eyes," which has been covered by, among others, Linda Ronstadt, Sheryl Crow and Richie Havens. - more on this story
