Episode image for Troubadours: The Rise of the Singer-Songwriter

Morgan Neville's full-length documentary is James Taylor and
Carole King's first-hand account of the genesis and blossoming of the
1970s singer-songwriter culture in LA, focusing on the backgrounds and
emerging collaboration between Taylor, King and the Troubadour, the
famed West Hollywood club that nurtured a community of gifted young
artists and singer-songwriters.

Taylor and King first performed together at the Troubadour in
November 1970, and the film explores their coming together and the
growth of a new, personal voice in songwriting pioneered by a small
group of fledgling artists around the club. Contributors include Taylor,
King, David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Kris
Kristofferson, JD Souther, Peter Asher, Cheech & Chong, Steve Martin
and Elton John.
