My dad used to play this album a lot when I was a kid, and after American Pie and Vincent, this is the track that I remember being most impressed with. Even when I was too young to know what it was about, the despair came through loud and clear.
Enormously influential album, above and beyond the winning classic hit "American Pie". A kinder, gentler soul in the anti-war era than some of his better known contemporaries. Gorgeous lyrics and wonderfully wistful voice.
