A great song by the former Eagle but as with many of the Eagles’ hits didn’t make the Australian Top 40. Maybe, in the case of New York Minute, it might be to do with its duration (over 6 minutes)

The Eagles did a version on the Hell Freezes Over tour and album – otherwise, you’ll need to track it down on Henley’s very excellent End Of The Innocence album (1989).

Very poignant lyrics and a great melody, bordering on a jazz feel.
