James Taylor & J.D. Souther - Her Town Too b/w Believe It Or Not (1981) - single

"Her Town Too" is a song written by James Taylor, J.D. Souther and Waddy Wachtel. It was first released as a duet between Taylor and Souther on Taylor's 1981 album “Dad Loves His Work”, peaking at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The subject of "Her Town Too" is the aftermath of a break up of a long term relationship. Taylor has called it "a tender, well-meaning song about how difficult it was to be friends" with both parties after the breakup. Since Taylor's marriage to Carly Simon was breaking up at the time, there was speculation that the song was about their relationship. However, Taylor has stated that the song was about "the ex-wife of a mutual friend." Author Sheila Weller has written that the subject was Betsy Asher, who had recently divorced from Taylor's long time manager and producer Peter Asher. Taylor has said of the song that it "showed a maturity in song structure that had been developing since I wrote 'Your Smiling Face' for JT." "Your Smiling Face and JT had been issued four years earlier, in 1977. Taylor also claimed that the song had "a relentless bolero quality."
