I really appreciate hearing about a composer's inspiration for and the context of the music. Having listened to Taylor's body of work for decades, I now find myself nodding as lightbulbs go on for long-familiar but newly-understood lyrics. It took me a little while to get used to Taylor's narration: I found the flow sometimes a touch awkward, as if it was unrehearsed, and perhaps it was; it's his life after all, why rehearse? It wasn't until later that I realized this unusual flow is what I've always appreciated about Taylor's performance of his music: the unique phrasing that makes for a delightful auditory experience. Thank you, Mr. Taylor, for an illuminating read. Looking forward to the next instalment.
