An album full of skillfully crafted pop songs and classics with a jazzy twist. Originally released in 1993, Good Friends is singer-songwriter Livingston Taylor's ninth album. Taylor includes several cover songs along with his own self-penned material.

His cover of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands" takes the original's simple arrangement (just a bluesy electric guitar, bass and drums behind Wither's voice) and recreates the song into a gospel-choir backed a cappella performance. Based on the lyrics, the Grandma of this song was a religious woman who "clapped in church on Sunday morning" and "played a tambourine so well. He also tackles the Wizard of Oz selections, "If I Only Had a Brain" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

Keeping with the Chesky Records standards, as the back-cover reads, this album was "recorded with minimalist miking techniques and without overdubbing or artificial enhancement to ensure the purest and most natural sound possible."
