Friday night at 5 PM we got a call from friends who suddenly had happened upon 18 EXTRA tickets to see the Troubadour Reunion Tour of James Taylor & Carol King at the Hollywood Bowl. Lived here all my life, and I still love living in LA, if for nothing else but stuff like this.
Nancy got on the phone, and rustled up 12 close friends, and off we went. The concert time was 7:30, and we entered the Bowl (two rows from the very very top) right as the band took the stage.
As we sat in the gathering dusk, eating cold chicken, crackers, and grapes, we listened to two of the icons of our generation. It was beautiful. Thanks to the wonders of YouTube, and illegal videos, below, please watch, for the few days before the lawyers shut it down, a moment from that evening. This is the first encore.
