Singer/songwriter Don McLean recently revealed to Yahoo! Music that the West Forty Fourth Street Rhythm and Noise Choir credited as back-up singers on his iconic song “American Pie” actually consisted of James Taylor, Carly Simon, Pete Seeger, and Livingston Taylor.
It’s hard to tell from the mix, but producer Ed Freeman confirms it. “It was quite a star-studded cast, and one that I really should have photographed.”
James, Carly and Livingston also sang together on Liv’s “Loving Be My New Horizon” from his third album Over the Rainbow (1973).
