Neil Young

Album: Harvest

Yielded Young's only Number One hit, "Heart of Gold," and helped set the stage for the Seventies soft-rock explosion -- both James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt sing on the album. Along with Young, they all were in Nashville to appear on Johnny Cash's variety show the week that Harvest was cut. With an odd group of accomplished session players that included bassist Tim Drummond, who had played with James Brown. The sound was Americana -- steel guitar, slide guitar, banjo -- stripped down and rebuilt with every jagged edge exposed. The standout tracks include "Old Man" and "The Needle and the Damage Done."

Chosen the 78th greatest album of all time by Rolling Stone magazine in Dec. 2003

Mike Oldfield - "Tubular Bells, Part 1"
Listened to this one for the first time yesterday. Awesome album, I wish I'd have checked it out before. Some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard.

Neil Young

Album: Living With War - In The Beginning

/ Neil Young, features a 100-voice choir that backs the singer/songwriter's musings on President Bush, the conflict in Iraq and families on the home front.

The ten-song collection includes songs with such titles as "Shock and Awe," "Looking for a Leader" and "Let's Impeach the President." The music is the latest work from Young that seeks to capture a pivotal moment in time, much as he did with "Let's Roll" -- about the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and 1970's "Ohio," about the shooting of students during a protest at Kent State University.

Young, who was born in Canada, has lived in the United States for decades. The songs he wrote for Living With War reflect criticism and concern for people living through a trying time.

Neil Young

Album: Live At The Fillmore East [Live] 1969

The long-awaited Neil Young Archives have finally been released (Dec '96) to the public with Live at the Fillmore East.
A month after releasing 1969’s Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, his second solo album and the first backed by Crazy Horse, Young joined up with Crosby, Stills, and Nash. They played Woodstock for their second gig, and recorded Déjà Vu. Their musical talents, combined with the void created by Bob Dylan’s refusal to accept what fans wanted him to be and the break-up of The Beatles, saw them rise as a voice for and stars of the counterculture; however, they broke up soon after their 1970 summer tour, which was captured on 1971’s Four Way Street.

As part of his arrangement to join the CSN, Young was allowed to carry on with his solo career, so during February and March of 1970 he went on tour to support Everybody Knows with Crazy Horse (Danny Whitten on guitar, Billy Talbot on bass, Ralph Molina on drums) and producer Jack Nitzsche on electric piano.

Collected from two nights is their brand of electrified county rock straight out of the canyons of Los Angeles, quite possibly the home Young refers to in the album’s title track. “Winterlong” is an unusual love song, finding the couple at place where moving forward together is difficult and the end can be seen. The song was first released on the 1977 best-of compilation Decade, and later covered by The Pixies.

However, the real genius of the joining of Neil & Danny is revealed on “Down By The River,” a love story with a different ending. The country sound disappears and rock comes to the forefront as the song wonderfully winds into a sprawling 12-minute epic of guitar virtuosity with Young and Whitten exchanging leads on the bridges. Nicely recorded too ;-}
