Chip Taylor

Last Chance: The Warner Bros. Years

train wreck


Released: 10th Nov 2017


this collects three inspiring country-rock records he made for warner bros in the mid ‘70s, taken directly from the original masters, plus a never-before-seen concert & a booklet by taylor, including rare photos – a glorious slice of material from one of the world’s greatest songwriters.

During the 1960s, he had great success as a songwriter – ‘Wild Thing’ & ‘Angel Of The Morning’ are two of the most iconic hits of all time, let alone of the ‘60s! As the '70s began, Taylor began a solo career with the well-regarded ‘Gasoline’ album on Buddah Records. This led to being signed to Warner Brothers in 1972, for whom he would release the seminal record ‘last chance’. Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Anne Murray & George Strait would go on to record cover versions of the songs on this album. It is one of the foundations of country-rock.
