  • Mostly recorded at Taylor's home studio, ONE MAN DOG is an atypical release for a man known for putting out straightforward sets of his distinctive brand of folk-rock. This release from 1972 came after Taylor had achieved a good measure of stardom, and was free to explore some untraditional approaches. After this record, he returned to a more straight-forward format, but ONE MAN DOG has a relaxed, pastoral vibe that makes for enjoyable listening.
  • The record consists of 18 shortish pieces strung together: traditional pop/folk songs, like the graceful single "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight," as well as humorous, off-the-cuff gems like the ode to a favorite food "Chili Dog," a jig, a drug song ("Mescalito"), and several gentle instrumentals. The production is more low-key than usual, and even though the atmosphere is relaxed, the playing is top-notch thanks to Taylor stalwarts Danny Kortchmar, Russ Kunkel and Leland Sklar. Taylor covers John McLaughlin's "Someone, " with McLaughlin providing a scintillating lead, and elsewhere, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King and Taylor's future wife Carly Simon supply backup vocals.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (1/18/73, p.49) - "...it will hit you from behind because on the surface it all sounds so simple, and yet underneath the horns--so dazzlingly arranged--and the beautiful rhythm, the voice and the thoughts resonate long after the record is over..."
