Time Life Music’s Singers & Songwriters: Classics features 20 cuts, almost all of which were culled from the singer/songwriter-rich 1970s. Featuring a solid mix of certifiable classics including “Still Crazy After All These Years” (Paul Simon), “(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay” (Otis Redding), and “Everybody's Talkin'” (Harry Nilsson) along with artist high watermarks such as “Leader of the Band” (Dan Fogelberg), “Sundown” (Gordon Lightfoot), and “For What It’s Worth” (Buffalo Springfield), Classics dutifully replicates a classic rock radio Sunday playlist.
After the success of the first Classics delivers the musical range of the singer-songwriters enough good material to ease a second part to compile. This time with gems of artists we missed out on some one like Sting, Cat Stevens and Lyle Lovett, and also the old stalwarts such as Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon. The song was inspired by Mitchell's room in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. The inspiration for the first verse comes partly from the distinct decor of her apartment. While in Philadelphia, Mitchell and friends had made a mobile from shards of colored glass they had found in the street and wire coat hangers. VanWarmer was inspired to write Just When I Needed You Most by a devastating breakup with a girlfriend: he wrote the song six months after that breakup co-writing it with Tony Wilson of the group Hot Chocolate two years before it became a hit.
3 CD collection of Love songs including Chrise Rea, Tina Turner, a-ha, Simply Red and many others. Released on March 10, 2017 on Warner.
