It was re-recorded for Taylor's Greatest Hits album in the version that is most familiar to listeners. It has been a staple of Taylor's concert performances over the decades of his career.
Strongly tied to a sense of geographic place, "Carolina in My Mind" has been called an unofficial state anthem for North Carolina. It is also an unofficial song of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill , being played at athletic events and pep rallies and sung by the graduating class at every university commencement.
It has become one of Taylor's most critically praised songs   and one that has great popularity and significance for his audience. The song references Taylor's years growing up in North Carolina.
He started writing the song at producer Peter Asher 's London flat on Marylebone High Street , resumed work on it while on holiday on the Mediterranean island of Formentera , and then completed it while stranded on the nearby island of Ibiza with Karin, a Swedish girl he had just met. Dark and silent late last night, I think I might have heard the highway calling Geese in flight and dogs that bite And signs that might be omens say I'm going, I'm going I'm gone to Carolina in my mind.
The original recording of the song was done at London's Trident Studios during the July to October period, and was produced by Asher. The song was first released on Taylor's eponymous debut album in December February in the United States , and was later released as a single in the UK in February and in the United States in March A previously unreleased acoustic demo of "Carolina in My Mind" was issued as a bonus track on the Apple Records remastering of James Taylor.
In Canada, the song peaked at No. Different versions of both this song and "Something in the Way She Moves" were remade by Taylor for use on his Greatest Hits album because of the difficulty of obtaining licensing rights from Apple during the s and because of uncertainty about where the Apple masters were. This rendition of "Carolina in My Mind" had a slower tempo than the original, and accompanying Taylor on acoustic guitar were experienced LA session musicians Dan Dugmore on pedal steel guitar highlighted in the descending note sequences at the song's conclusion , Lee Sklar on bass, Russ Kunkel on drums, Clarence McDonald on piano, Andrew Gold on harmonium , and Byron Berline on fiddle.
Bill Janovitz of Allmusic said of the recording that it "accent[ed] the languid, plaintive and wistful country melancholy of the song,"  while in the Rolling Stone Record Guide , critic Stephen Holden said that the "stunning" remake showed how much Taylor's singing had strengthened in the intervening years.
The audience reaction demonstrates that the song has great popularity despite never being a hit single: there is immediate cheering as the first notes are picked out on Taylor's acoustic guitar, and further cheering as soon as he starts to sing.
By this era Taylor's always-excellent touring band  was using four backing singers. Arnold McCuller , David Lasley , Kate Markowitz , and Valerie Carter featured strongly in the arrangement, continuing the emphasis on the song's harmonies that had begun with the remake.
In a interview with Parade , Taylor stated that "Carolina in My Mind" was his favorite song to perform, explaining, "Because my audience responds well to it, and because it wears well, I like 'Carolina In My Mind'.
I play it almost every time I perform, and I haven't tired of it. While "Carolina in My Mind" did not gain much attention from the public upon its original release, it did from other artists. It was a No. The song was recorded by Melanie on her hit April album Candles in the Rain ; the arrangement and vocal phrasing are different from Taylor's, and Allmusic writes that her version "exist[s] on an entirely separate plane from the original".
About the same time, Glen Campbell was performing the song as a sped-up country duet with Linda Ronstadt on his popular television series The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour ; this was later collected on his video release Good Times Again.
The song subsequently became so identified with Taylor that other artists recorded it less frequently, [ citation needed ] but still by the late s there were some 60 albums including compilation reappearances and albums from Taylor himself that featured it. Thinking of the red soil, the seasons, the way things smelled down there, I feel as though my experience of coming of age there was more a matter of landscape and climate than people.
Author James L. Peacock sees it akin to Stephen Foster 's " My Old Kentucky Home " and other songs and works of literature in establishing "the South's sense of place", even if that sense is sometimes an exercise in projected nostalgia.
I realized that the song had a lot of significance. We also sing it at graduation every year, as a send off, so there's more significance behind it We love what you do and how you represent this university. It draws a line through my own personal history and connects me again to a place that I go to in my dreams, a landscape that will forever be a part of me.
They recorded a version of the song on their album A Soldier's Heart ,  and the song is part of their concert repertoire. Some of the song's lyrics are used as an epigraph in the Celebrate the States series volume on North Carolina  and in the reference book America the Quotable. Although it was North Carolina that inspired the song, it is popular in South Carolina too, tying for first place on a South Carolina Information Highway's construction of a soundtrack regarding the state.
