Time Will Show the Wiser

The Fairport Convention version is more famous, and I like it a lot, but Emitt Rhodes wrote it and it's hard to beat the original (available on this great Merry-Go-Round collection.) Paul McCartney never had a better or more satisfying emulator. Listen to that bass. Such a great recording.
