James Taylor is not what this author would consider to be a “rock ‘n’ roll” star, but he’s in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is a big recording artist who still racks up big numbers in sales. Taylor, fresh off the release of what would be a hit album in Gorilla, appeared in Youngstown on May 9, 1975 at the Beeghly Center. At this time Taylor was enjoying the success of the cover of “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)” which reached No. 5 on the pop charts. His wife at the time Carly Simon sang on that recording.
