This wasno google or internet, so it took several years until I had the courage to ask him who and what was on that tape. By then I was 16 and he cared little if I played the stereo, as long as I take care of it.
Flash forward toI'm 51, and The Circle Game has a different meaning to me. Toms work is so seminal, it affects you at different stages of life, makes you feel. Urge For Going, Tin Angel, Rockport Sunday, No Regrets, as ever evoke powerful emotions, and not just the words, but the music is so perfect accompanying them.
Each song is like a story that leaves the listener with different feelings each time you hear them, depending on where you are at in life. You begin to prioritize differently, think and feel differently. Suddenly you are in no big hurry to do this or that, Tin Angel - Tom Rush - The Circle Game (CD be a certain age so you can do this or that.
You now want the wasted years back wasted chasing things which now so unimportant. Time has become the enemy, rather than that benign companion as you aged.
The Album) Circle Game takes on another meaning, a poignant one, the meaning of the lines become crystal clear And the seasons they go round and round And the painted ponies go up and down We're captive on the carousel of time We can't return we can only look behind From where we came And go round and round and round In the circle game Only Tom can give these song that gravitas, the feeling that gets into you deep down, even bringing tears to your eyes.

If you only have experienced it on CDdo yourself a favor and find the vinyl. Urge For Going will never sound sweeter than on vinyl. It's my second favorite of his songs.
No Regrets is number 3. I keep several copies of Circle Game on hand and whenever I find one in near perfect shape in the wild, I'll bring it home.
It's the same with many of his albums but The Circle Game will always been my favorite. I'm listening to it right now, the deep black background, zero surface noises, pure perfect music from the grooves. I have several red label Electra's, and they sound good, but this Gold label first pressing sounds amazing, as if I'm in the studio with him and it's again, which is the year I was born. Makes me a youngin' compared to many of you I'm more than sure. Last edited: Album) 17, This section is for people that have made a purchase from our online store.
