I've always felt that this was one of EJ's best ballads, if not quite in the same league as "Come Down In Time" (Tumbleweed Connection). The song never got the attention it deserved.

I first saw James Burton with Rick Nelson at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City in 1959. Rick had been unhappy with the more traditional back-up band provided in the previous year ("Poor Little Fool") and put together his own, including James. By most accounts, Rick and James were like brothers and lived together in the Nelson's home. The band was absolutely kick-ass and I stayed for every show over the weekend (as I would for the next few summers when they appeared).

They set an attendance record that broke Frank Sinatra's from the 1940's bobby-sox era, over fifty thousand in two days!

Just last night (12/15/13), my son and I played an Elton John marathon. A 24 year-old with an amazing eclectic taste in music, his recent obsession with the Beatles has now morphed into a passion for Elton John. (He does love the Brits!) I've had all the early EJ albums on vinyl since the day they were released, but only the first two on CD (I'm not counting "Empty Sky"). He's bought me "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" on CD for Christmas and is now intent on collecting them all. 

But in sharing with him on YouTube about thirty of my favorite songs from several different albums, I'm struck all over again by just how good these tracks are and what a remarkable career he's had. I met him twice, at the 1975 Rock Music Awards and when he did the "Cher" show (I worked for CBS), and if I' ever get the chance again I'd like to tell him what he's meant to not only my generation but to all that have followed.

His music stands the test of time.

Hey, 25 here man. I honestly hate the Beatles but Elton John is INCREDIBLE.
