It was written by Carole King, and though they each recorded it, James Taylor's version is much more well-known.  My older siblings had both Carole King's 'Tapestry' album as well as James Taylor's 'Mud Slide Slim'.  And I must say I probably wore out both albums equally!

When I hear that song today, it still sounds as good as it did the first time I heard it.  With it comes a rush of fond memories that I will forever cherish.  James Taylor was and still is a very special artist to me, and judging by his sold-out shows even today, I'm sure a lot of people agree.  With James Taylor, even after 44 years, You've Got a Friend.  :)
