"MOORE MUSIC"

YouTube - Tim Moore - Second Avenue -- [STEREO] - HQ Back in 1975-76 as a senior at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Connecticut I was the concert co-chairman of the Student Union Board of Governors. One concert we had that year at the Jorgensen Auditorium was a show with Tim Moore and Blood, Sweat & Tears with David Clayton Thomas.

Tim Moore from the Philadelphia area was and is a singer songwriter who played the piano and recorded songs including "Second Avenue" (see the You Tube link) and "Rock and Roll Love Letter". "Second Avenue" was also recorded by Art Garfunkle of Simon and Garfunkle fame. "Rock and Roll Love Letter" was recorded by the Bay City Rollers.

"Second Avenue " was first recorded by Tim Moore with Art Garfunkle recording this song shortly thereafter. Although Art recorded this song second he sold more records than Tim's "Second Avenue" version. It is always nice to hear and listen to "Moore Music".
