If one song stands out in my own life experiances, it is Second Avenue. Written, and sung with tenderness by Tim Moore, it has taken me back many nights to a time that is filled with all of lifes emotions. I had this album, and finally played it until the vinyl was completely worn out. Through the years, I've tried to find copies of the album, but to no avail. You can guess my reaction when I was able to get it on c.d. I have a store, and there isn't a day that I don't play Second Avenue. I let Tim Moore weave his brand of magic, and once again I am transported back to that time in my life where I keep most of my memories. Thanks, Tim, for many years of memories.I also have Art Garfunkle's version; love it, but Tim Moore's version is just so pure.....

Bowie was looking for his one song that could make him break down and cry. Second Avenue is it. I can't listen to the song without getting choked up. For anyone that had a long term relationship that wasn't going to work, there is solace in this song. Second Avenue had many plays on my turntable in the early 1980's.

The 70's had this endless string of one LP hits for this revolving door of songwriter/singers. My roommate had this LP and it was there that I first heard "Second Avenue". I had heard Moore's version before I heard Art Garfunkel's excellent version. I like them both equally. Moore, the author of this poignant ballad, should have blasted to the top of the charts with this one. The voice and piano really entangle you with the lyrics. This is one of those LP's I would check into every few months,... , and what a great surprise to see it pop up on my screen this last time I looked it up. The other truly great song on this CD is "Love Enough". Eqaully as good as "Second Avenue". Where "Second Avenue" is powerful in the imagery of its lyrics, "Love Enough" says something rather profound about ourselves and relationships. Both songs easily escape the all too familiar sound of the 70's that has dated many songs and artists.The other song worth mentioning is "A Fool Like Me" which rounds this threesome of great songs from an otherwise obscure and mediocre collection. I would have purchased this CD for anyone of these three songs, and given the rating of four stars, as one great song deserves such recognition. This is the first time I've heard this LP/CD in over twenty years, and all three songs pass the test of time.

In the 1970s when this album was released, I remember stopping in reverance whenever "Second Avenue" was played on the radio. At that time I wasn't buying much music, but the song stayed in my mind.
Now, so many years later, I looked up the song, heard a snipet, and knew I had to have the CD -- which I bought and have listened to repeatedly. Such talent. There's a quality to Tim Moore's voice that reaches deep inside me and calls up every emotion centered around love that I've ever felt. His words are pure poetry, and his command of so many instruments amazes me.
I believe that Clay Aiken has the type of voice to make "Second Avenue" a hit in today's market. Clay, please record this song!

His songs came out way before my time and NEVER played on any of the oldies station, so I never even knew of Tim Moore's existence. What a waste of talent unnoticed by the mainstream media.
Thank goodness a friend with good ballad music tastes told me about "Second Avenue." I purchased the CD because of "Second Avenue", expecting only to like that one song. Was I wrong. I enjoy "A Fool Like You".
"Love Enough" is simply FANTASTIC! It's one of the most beautiful ballads I ever heard, and I never get tired of listening to it.

Tim Moore never had a top 40 hit by himself. "2nd Avenue" done by Art Garfunkel (on the 45, it reads Garfunkel no Art)and that was as close as he got. Tim won a song writing contest, 1974 Grand Prize best song at the 1rst annual American Song Fesival, an attempt for promoters in USA to copy the World-Wide Song Fesival where ABBA got its first buzz with "Waterloo". Later, that same song festival acknowledged "Feelings" as the best song...

Anyway, Tim won in 1974 with "Charmer", a mainstream piano uptempo song that Billy Joel would have liked to have stolen. That song went nowhere. But Tim got a recording contract, made an LP with some basic 70's rock and released the 45 "2nd Avenue"

That song was indicative of the time, but better than most singer/songwriter lyrics and had an evocative voice. Those who heard it when played. rarely, on AM stations knew that it was a fine song but it passed quicky. I actually bought the LP, but even at the time it was hard to find. Now to get the LP on CD is a treat. Tim Moore has a terrific sense of melody and verse, but it is easy to see why he didn't go much further than those who got it in the first place. I wonder if those who didn't hear him then will get it now....
