James Taylor and Carly Simon, Close Your Eyes

At 61 today, James Taylor has lived quite a life. He’s written folk songs, married women with absolutely enormous mouths, and taken lots and lots of heroin. We simply had to buy him a present. After taking some heroin to get a feel for what a former addict might like, we decided that it was a toss up between a battered old mattress for the floor of a grotty bedsit, or a clip of him performing a classic track with his then-wife. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday James!
