If you like Expecting to Fly (and who doesn't) . . . check out As We Go Along by the Monkees. Not kidding - basically the same folks who brought you Expecting to Fly are on that record as well. Including Neil Young, Jack Nitzsche (and Ry Cooder). Similar sound and production.

I like the song but prefer the live acoustic version on Live At The Cave.

This song is one of NY's post-Pepper forays into Art Rock. It is a lovely melody sung poignantly by Young, although the arrangement is fussy and overproduced .
