Anything electric, especially live electric. Anyone see his performance of Rocking in the Free World on SNL? This guy totally understands what rock is about.

Yes. That was a great performance!


And the best part? ... Neil understands the meaning of "rocking in a free world" ... and playing it in there is a double whammy ... both SNL and American TV are the worst when it comes to music and exposing ... "rock in a free world" ... so yeah ... he would probably know that he wanted to blow out the audience and the show as much as possible.

I would too.

And so would you, if you knew and thought and understood that!

You guys are overwhelming the new 'B', keep it simple Harvest.

No thanx. I'll keep my recommendations as they are. Alot of Harvest is nice if overrated and I'd never recommend it before the many much better albums available. I'd listen to Year of the Horse dozens of times before I'd put on Harvest if it was my only alternative. Same goes for any of the live titles I listed. And for those interested, FZ didn't much care for Harvest either.

Yeah...it's hard to go wrong with almost anything he's done. I saw him live for the first time 2 1/2 years ago. And I still remember it being one of the ten best shows I've ever seen.

Some of my favourites are:

Patiently awaiting the CD release...
Image

Without a doubt, one of the five best live albums of all time
Image

One that rarely gets mentioned and it's also Neil's favourite
Image

A return to form, after a lackluster mid 80s period...
Image

Yes, that's right, you heard right, I like it better than Harvest

I have enjoyed Neil in his many incarnations, he usually takes risks...

Check out Chrome Dreams II

American Stars 'n Bars, probably should have been mentioned on this thread.

Journey Through the Past, probably shouldn't

Maybe there's another NY thread, I dunno, but it looks like this thread was at least before these:

Image
I don't have it, haven't listened to to it. Probably'll get it at some point.

Image
Got this one recently. Liking some of it, others not so much. Mixed bag.

Image
Had this one in my hand at several record stores, but it hasn't made it to the register yet.

For relatively recent stuff, I like this one from 2012:

Also Chrome Dreams II, Le Noise, and Greendale.
