Dec62015.png1968: Apple Records releases James Taylor in U.K. markets, the first time the label puts out the work of a non-British artist.  It is Taylor’s first LP and includes songs such as Something in The Way She Moves, Carolina in My Mind and Rainy Day Man. Released in February 1969 in the U.S., it is greeted favorably. Rolling Stone writer Jon Landau calls it “the coolest breath of fresh air I’ve inhaled in a good long while.” It suffers commercially in part because Taylor is hospitalized for his drug addiction and cannot promote his work.
