Downtown in Tivoli

Bobby Angels ode …

To small riverside towns everywhere.

Bobby Angel delivers another masterpiece, this time his homage to small riverside towns: Downtown in Tivoli. The song was originally conceived as a snapshot in time of a small town along the Hudson River that the singer/songwriter visited many times (and many a moon ago) with his brother, who lived in the region for some time, until he left. But twenty years after it was originally penned, Bobby Angel spent two days straight trying to remember the chords and lyrics and eventually did. The song is now a nostalgic look back to a world both gone by and still there as it always was and always will be. Long live Tivoli and long live Cafe Pongo!
