On Wednesday night, The Gotham Gal and I went to see Shining City at the Manhattan Theater Club. It’s a wonderful play and features a commanding broadway debut from Oliver Platt. The soundtrack to the play is old Neil Young songs. As the final curtain call ended, a song came on that I haven’t heard in years – Comes A Time.
There was a time, back in college, where my friend and roomate Pete would play Comes A TIme every day. So yesterday morning I put on Comes A Time and went back 25 years.
Comes A Time sits betwen Decade and Rust Never Sleeps in Neil’s discography and is often overlooked. But it’s a wondferful record. The kind of record that sets a mood from the start and never loses it.
If you want some of that mood or want to go back 25 years, give it a listen.
