Chip Taylor - A Song I Can Live With

.
The very prolific Taylor begins this album in an understated way with "Crazy Girl" which he delivers in tones so hushed that he's nearly whispering, a device that ensures that the listener has to truly listen, at least until repeat play brings familiarity. "Until it Hurts" finds Taylor in a talking mode and here his speech is not entirely unlike that of Leonard Cohen, except that Taylor is more stream of consciousness than the late Canadian poet and singer, talking about things like the death of David Bowie and how Bowie used to live on Lafayette Street in New York. And that's the modus operandi here, sedate yet intense songs with minimal accompaniment (mostly guitar and piano) that might throw those who only know Taylor from his work with Carrie Rodriguez for a bit of a loop. Conversely, many will find A Song I Can Live With to be one of Taylor's most personal and rewarding albums ever. Get your copy here
