RhinoA new box set featuring remastered versions of the six studio albums that James Taylor released on the Warner Bros. Records label during the 1970s will hit stores on July 19. The Complete Warner Bros. Albums: 1970-1976 will be available as a six-CD set, a six-LP heavyweight vinyl collection and digitally.

Sweet Baby James was Taylor’s second album, following his self-titled 1968 debut, and features the enduring title track and his classic song “Fire and Rain,” which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon features Taylor’s chart-topping rendition of Carole King‘s “You’ve Got a Friend.” The album peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200, and has sold over 2 million copies in the U.S.

One Man Dog includes the #14 hit “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight” and reached #4 on the Billboard 200.
