Troubadours: Carole King / James Taylor & The Rise of the Singer-Songwriter
Interview with filmmaker Morgan Neville

Morgan Neville describes the making of the documentary Troubadours: Carole King / James Taylor & The Rise of the Singer-Songwriter, a riveting chronicle of the time, weaving together archival footage, rare performances, and interviews from a veritable who’s who, including Elton John, Steve Martin, and Bonnie Raitt. Neville discusses his editing process and the relationship it has to the way he makes a mix-tape, elements of the film that serve as a ode to Los Angeles, and more. Troubadours: Carole King / James Taylor & The Rise of the Singer-Songwriter airs Wednesday, March 2 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings).

    I’ve been watching, almost ready to turn it off several times. Watching people talk without sound is annoying! Finally, after 47 minutes of this, it changes and one can hear the voices. Strange way of doing this show.
