"This single, released to promote Billy Joel's cover of Bob Dylan's "To Make You Feel My Love," also contains two recordings of one of his classics, "Summer, Highland Falls." One of the recordings is from Songs in the Attic. The other is one that was only released on this single, from a tour he did in 1995. It is a brilliant recording, unique to this single. The song has always been good, but it seems that by 1995 Billy Joel's age has given a new depth to the song; rather than singing it like a sad teenager whose just lost his girlfriend, he sounds much more like an older man, looking back with a certain nostalgia and sardonic wisdom at the boy he once was. This is a truly special recording of the song, and obviously one that will remain very obscure, since it was only ever released on this little single. It's unfortunate, because never has Joel before captured the idea of "sadness or euphoria" so beautifully."
