You Can Close Your Eyes (Cover)
This week I’ve chosen to perform the James Taylor song “You Can Close Your Eyes” from his 1971 record “Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon”. The album was a follow up to the “Sweet Baby James” record that started Taylor’s career as a recording artist. There is certainly no shortage of James Taylor songs that I could’ve chosen to cover, and I imagine I will do some more of his songs in the future. I’m attached to this song personally, Maybe it is the amount of traveling we’ve been doing, or the fact that this song, and this record, remind me of family and of my home. It is also sort of an anthem for the couple who’s relationship is made complicated by travel, a simple message: I am away, I will be home soon, I love you, rest easy. I hope that I have done the song justice, and I hope you enjoy it. More to come this week on the site, and I hope if any of you are in the Nashville area that I will see you at Pour House tonight at 8 p.m., where I will be performing some original songs. Either way, have a great week.
