Tolan McNeil – There Will Always Be a Salesman

There’s smorgasbord of songs here on this CD by Carolyn Mark sideman Tolan McNeil but the tune I keep going back to is worth the price of product plus postage alone. You Should Probably Just Come With Me Now is the best song that Elvis Costello never wrote and it’s pop smarts hit you from the get go and never let up. It’s one of those songs that I want to listen to again while I’m still listening to it! Clearly just the tip of the iceberg (rather than McNeil’s only wad), this song might eventually relax its demands on my ear but I have comfort in the knowledge there’s more where it came from.
