Any good artist worth his salt will explore and push the boundaries. I like Rust Never Sleeps.

^ Sounds like a good one.... sorry I missed it. It's never too late....

Ok just watched a video of Computer Age and Sample And Hold. Ominously prescient. Still like it better than the autotune **** we have now...

Trans and This Note's For You!

Missed it and kind of wished I hadn't but I prefer electric Neil (and Crazy Horse Neil) to acoustic Neil, although the Massey Hall album is pretty fabulous.

I agree with Musicware4u that Zuma and On the Beach are both spectacular records; they probably get the most play here actually along with Harvest and Tonight's the Night. But the first three records are not shabby either.

Can't get into Neil's later efforts much though. For an artist he's a pretty astute marketer and business guy as well.

I highly doubt that actually. Regardless of what lynyrd skynyrd thought.

Yeah, for me overall Everybody Knows This is Nowhere would be my fav but that involves splitting hairs. Harvest & Heart Of Gold as a double album would be even better.

Skynyrd didn't actually mean anything by it, though. It was just a lyrical thing that worked. They were Neil Young fans, or at least the writer of the lyrics was...which was Ronnie Van Zant. He tried making that clear when in some of the concerts of the time, he wore Neil Young T-shirts, to show his fandom of Neil...

I thought the show was great.
Emotional for me.
Grew up listening to Neil in some pretty dark days and his voice lyrics and music inspired my own short lived musicianship.
A legend for sure.
Canadian or otherwise .
I dont know why people must politicize everything and everyone. Oh well their bag not mine.
Oh ya and ive seen many a concert by him but as the sign above the stage read Home Town. And everyone has one.
Rock on Neil.

Those lyrics are quite the honor. The only other song I can think of that so immortalizes another musician is Roll Over Beethoven. I may be biased but I'd say Young is in good company.
