Comment of the Moment: "ALL ROADS LEAD HOME": MTL&Y = Ralph Molina, Billy Talbot, Nils Lofgren & Neil Young

 Nils Lofgren, Billy Talbot, Neil Young & Ralph Molina & ???


Ralph Molina, Billy Talbot, Nils Lofgren and Neil Young have completed a new album titled All Roads Lead Home and scheduled for release on March 31.

Here is the Comment of the Moment on "ALL ROADS LEAD HOME": MTL&Y = Ralph Molina, Billy Talbot, Nils Lofgren & Neil Young by Ron:

I  have been enjoying listening to this tune by Nils too. 

He is indeed a very talented guy - guitar, piano, accordion and vocals he can do it all - and its good to see his brother Tom involved again too.

I saw Nils a few times in the seventies and they were great shows. As part of the show he and Tom used to get together on one song and pick each other's guitar strings while fingering the notes on their own guitars. Bit of a gimmick but the crowds loved it. And then of course Nils would do a backflip on a mini trampoline for fun too.

Nils was quite big in the UK in the seventies - he appeared on the unique Old Grey Whistle Test show on UK TV a few times which helped. His first self-titled solo album and Cry Tough were and are big favourites of mine. Billy and Ralph sing on one track on Cry Tough.

He still tours solo/with friends in the UK regularly. I saw him a few years back and it was another great show. A great mix of acoustic and electric songs and he even plays a harp on one song. He's a good storyteller too and has a many good anecdotes to share. Catch him if you can if he comes to your town.

PS - The first time I saw Nils the support act were a just starting out Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. They were great too and you just felt sure they were going to be stars. So sad that we lost Tom so young.

Thanks Ron for the CotM. Yes, Nils and Neil have quite a history... a tale we've told before that never gets old.

I enjoyed the comment.

My question, which I don't know how to answer exactly, is whether or not anyone has ever written a song on this theme. I am not sure how to name the theme. But it seems unique and for that reason alone worthy. Beyond that the melody makes the mood and I am not sure how to name the mood. Locke once said that we have not named all of our emotions, moods, etc.., some are combinations. I am listening to this song all the time along.

@Abner : I completely understand where you’re coming from. I don’t think we humans have an understanding of many things. Yet we experience them on a regular basis. If we could let go of the assumption that we’ve figured everything out already, perhaps we would be more open to the possibility that the unknown still exists.

Peace 🙏
