Chip Taylor Charcoal Sky

Posted by Americana2 on Nov. 20, 2009

In his nostalgic new video, Charcoal Sky, esteemed singer-songwriter Chip Taylor reminisces about placing nickels on the rails as a kid and listening to his father chat with the conductors. Taylor sets numerous family stories to music on a new album, Yonkers NY, with one of the two discs bolstered with personal anecdotes. Taylor is most recognized for writing Wild Thing and Angel of the Morning -- which couldnt be more different -- but throughout his brilliant career hes also placed songs with the likes of Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra and Dusty Springfield. Theres also a terrific new Chip Taylor anthology on Ace Records, with dozens of vintage artists offering their own renditions of his work, in case youre in the mood for memories too.
