Released in 1990, “New York Minute” features Eagles drummer/singer Don Henley…he of “Boys Of Summer” fame when he eventually went solo for a while. His session musicians were equally impressive – Toto legends Jeff Porcaro and Davis Paich.
I love the lush intro which then morphs to chimes and percussion before the song starts. The catchy chorus with its “oohs” reminds me of the Beach Boys and another song that for the life of me I just can’t place…over to anyone else for help!? Love also the muted trumpet in the middle. In the end if you’re an Eagles fan – like me – then it’ll definitely appeal.

I grew up listening to music from the late 60’s onwards. Pirate pop radio; swapping LP’s with friends; exploring genres; daydreaming over the latest woofer and tweeter.
