Come Down in Time

One of the more under-appreciated compositions in Elton John's extensive repertoire is the yearning, yet stately 'Come Down in Time', originally found on Reg's mythical 1970 concept album 'Tumbleweed Connection'. Former Police chief did an unassuming and unadorned, but also engaging and persuasive version for the 1991 John and Bernie Taupin homage collection 'Two Rooms', and that adaptation was arguably one of the bona fide highlights of an otherwise run-of-the-mill tribute record. Check out this historic televised performance, where these two British mainstream rock legends finally got together to do an impromptu but inevitably first-class rendering of this classic ditty about unrequited love.
