My wife and I have several songs which we refer to as "our song". It's impossible for either of us to hear it and not get that connection — feel the same feelings we experienced when it became our song. If you're in need of a song that would fill that bill for young lovers, or lovers that still feel young and can actually remember the seventies, then these two artists can provide it.
Right smack dab in the middle of a special moment, when you realize that your way and my way seem to be one and the same, then you CAN believe the magic of my sighs. The funny thing about this is that when King and Taylor were making their impressions on us, we had not met. We didn't meet for another twenty years. We had a long distance courtship and enjoyed the moon together — and the songs we loved. Music and celestial bodies are like that. They give people in love something to share intimately even when they aren't together.
As the DVD opens with quiet scenes of an empty Troubadour, Taylor's voice is heard having a conversation with King who answers and then fades. The show begins with solos of significant songs by each. After Taylor sings "Blossom", King comments that when she was preparing for this tour, and she sat down to play this song, her brain didn't remember it but her fingers and heart did. The conversation between numbers ranges from warmth to humor to the joy of reveling in a friend's accomplishments. After the first two songs, Taylor introduces "The Section", their original band as "..still alive and at the top of their game." Joining them on stage are guitarist Danny Kortchmar, bassist Leland Sklar, and drummer Russell Kunkel. Kortchmar gets a nice solo when King performs her monster hit, "It's Too Late", and Kunkel is noted for his brushwork on "Fire and Rain".
A respectful round of applause was prompted by the opening notes of "Fire and Rain" which could easily be Taylor's signature song. It was a moment in which Taylor connected with his audience and their emotions with his experiences recounted in an autobiographical song. It was a moment to remember and the type of moment not found in enough concerts.
