Hearts of Darkness
James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Cat Stevens, and the Unlikely Rise of the Singer-songwriterBook - 2012
Hearts of Darkness is the story of a generation's coming of age through the experiences of its three most atypical pop stars. James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and Cat Stevens could never have been considered your typical late-sixties songwriters. Self-absorbed and self-composed, all three eschewed the traditional means of delivering their songs, instead turning its process inward. The result was a body of work that stands among the most profoundly personal art ever to translate into an international language, and a sequence of songs. From Sweet Baby James and Carolina in My Mind, to Jamaica Say You Will and These Days, to Peace Train and Wild World. That remain archetypes not only of what the critics called the singer-songwriter movement, but of the human condition itself.
