Lazy Sunday: Carole King and James Taylor

Dear Kay,

Just when we’re all having that Sunday Night Feeling, here come two of my all-time favorites, hanging out together and making us feel better.

It’s a new concert documentary premiering tonight: Carole King & James Taylor: Just Call Out My Name, 9:00 PM ET/PT on CNN. (It’ll be on HBO Max later on.)

The concert footage dates to 2010, back in the Before Times, when this pair of old friends set out on tour together. We know all the words, right?

While waiting for the show, here’s a lovely tribute to James Taylor by Adam Gopnik.

And up top, time travel to 1972, which was about the time I heard “Fire and Rain” for the first time.
