Drowning In The Sea Of Love / The Section

Listen: Drowning In The Sea Of Love / The Section SectionDrowning.mp3

The Section were James Taylor’s backup band in the 70′s. They issued one album on Warner Brothers, with a freshly baked homemade pie on the cover. Despite the visual invitation, I paid no attention to it. Still knee deep being an Anglophile didn’t mix at all with these tasty, let’s go back to the country unkept musos.

Now I like the album. And despite it’s title, I really like the single from it, ‘Do The Meatball’. But here’s the question: are the above Section the same bunch? Sounds like they could be. ‘Drowning In A Sea Of Love’ is a super blue eyed soul version of the Joe Simon classic. I’m posting both to let you hear it – and hopefully to get the answer to my question. Email me at
