James Taylor's commercial breakthrough in 1970 was predicated on the relationship between the private concerns expressed in his songs and the larger philosophical mood of his audience. He was going through depression, heartbreak, and addiction; they were recovering from the political and cultural storms of the '60s. On his follow-up to the landmark Sweet Baby James, Taylor brought his listeners up to date, wisely trying to step beyond the cultural, if not the personal, markers he had established.

Musically, Mud Slide Slim is a continuation of Sweet Baby James. It maintains Russ Kunkel on drums, Carole King on piano, and Danny Kootch on guitar, so the album is superficially similar-sounding to his previous effort. Yet the steel guitar is absent, Kootch’s driving electric guitar appears on only three of the album’s 13 cuts, and the tempi are moderate. The first few times through, it is dull listening; once the melodies begin to sink in, and the LP’s raison d’etre is discovered, the album’s subtle tensions begin to appear  . The nucleus of Mud Slide Slim is Taylor songs of travel, songs of home, and, finally, songs of songs. Songmaking and song-singing, of course, are James’ occupation and calling.
