James Taylor played Verizon last night. Anybody there?

Was it really 1970, on a 3 a.m. drive beneath the oaks arching over St. Charles Avenue, that  I first heard that bittersweet song about fire and rain? Anybody else have first-heard song moments? James Taylor's or anyone else? That's one of mine.

Another is "City of New Orleans," sitting outside a convenience store in Duson, La., right by the Southern Pacific railroad tracks. Summer night beer stop en route to Abbeville.
