Nov 15, 2002
Columbia Music Video is releasing Pull Over, a brand-new DVD and VHS recorded live on James Taylor's 2001 concert tour. Pull Over is Taylor's first DVD release since 1998's RIAA platinum-certified Live At The Beacon Theatre, which has become one of the biggest-selling music-content DVDs. Pull Over will be in stores on Tuesday, November 19.
As much as he's known for his recordings, James Taylor has been perennially in-demand as one of the world's most popular live concert performers. During his Pull Over tour of 2001, James Taylor treated his audiences to magical concerts comprised of greatest hits, personal favorites, live surprises, and new songs from his then upcoming October Road album, which the Boston Herald has called "Taylor's best in more than 20 years ...."
In addition to timeless classics from career, Pull Over includes three of Taylor's October Road songs for the first time on DVD. Included on Pull Over are "Everyday," "That's Why I'm Here," "Only One," "Frozen Man," "On the 4th of July," "Whenever You're Ready," "Raised Up Family," "Mexico," "Steamroller Blues," "Carolina In My Mind," "Millworker," Sun On The Moon," "Junkie's Lament," "Copperline," "Shed A Little Light," "Fire & Rain," "You've Got A Friend," "Your Smiling Face," "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)," "Traffic Jam," "Knock On Wood," "You Can Close Your Eyes," and "Sweet Baby James."
"Taylor's voice is better than ever," wrote the Los Angeles Times of the Pull Over tour, "choirboy clear, as if filtered through stained glass." And you can experience that pristine clarity first-hand in the state-of-the-art 5.1 audio mixes of the Pull Over DVD.
As a bonus for fans, the Pull Over DVD includes exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the making of James Taylor's best-selling October Road album as well as a biography and discography of the artist.
Pull Over captures James Taylor -- winner of 41 gold, platinum, and multi-platinum awards -- at the peak of his craft.
October Road, James Taylor's first studio album in five years, debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Sales chart (for the week ending August 18, 2002), giving the artist his biggest sales week, 154,000 copies sold, in the SoundScan era, and his highest charting album since 1977. October Road was certified gold by the RIAA on September 17, a month after its release, making it one of the fastest selling records in Taylor's career.
Taylor's last studio album, 1997's RIAA platinum-certified Hourglass, won that year's Grammy award for "Best Pop Vocal Album."
