Anyone see the James Taylor Special on PBS?

I was watching this,& even my Wife noticed when he
mentioned "Ford Cortina".
Seems that after going to England,he returned to the
US with a new '68 Cortina (an estate,if I remember right).
I love to hear stuff like that!

If I described it as a cross between a solo show and a Powerpoint presentation your heart would probably sink. It shouldn't. By using a screen to show us old pictures of his teenage girlfriend, his parents, the nephew for whom "Sweet Baby James" was written, the actual frozen man who was found in the permafrost,....
and an advert for the Cortina GT he bought when in London in 1968,...
