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.

Also Chrome Dreams II, Le Noise, and Greendale.

Watch Bob Dylan and Neil Young Sing Together for the First Time in 25 Years

They played “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” during a co-headlining show in Ireland

ROCK

During their co-headlining show at Kilkenny, Ireland’s Nowlan Park on Sunday night (July 14), Bob Dylan and Neil Young took the stage together for the first time since 1994, as Rolling Stone notes. They performed “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” the traditional hymn that Dylan sang early in his career and later with the Band during the sessions for The Basement Tapes. Last night’s show marked Dylan’s first time performing the song since a Rolling Thunder Revue concert in 1976. Check out videos below.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse Share ‘Milky Way’ Single
Aug 30, 20199:15 am PDTScott Bernstein

https://www.jambase.com/article/neil-young-crazy-horse-milky-way-single

Neil Young & Crazy Horse will release Colorado, their first new album in seven years on October 25 via Reprise Records. The band unveiled the LP’s lead single, “Milky Way.”

The quartet consisting of Neil Young, multi-instrumentalist Nils Lofgren, bassist Billy Talbot and drummer Ralph Molina recorded the 10-track LP high in the mountains of Telluride, Colorado this past spring. Young co-produced the album with longtime collaborator John Hanlon and additional mixing took place at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu. Neil and Crazy Horse tapped Chris Bellman to master Colorado at Hollywood’s Bernie Grundman Mastering.

“Milky Way” was debuted live by Young on May 14 at his solo concert in Vancouver and the song was a staple of his May tour, which included some shows with Promise Of The Real. Stream “Milky Way” below:

Neil Young Announces New Documentary Mountaintop: Watch the Trailer
It chronicles the making of Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s new album Colorado

https://pitchfork.com/news/neil-young-announces-new-documentary-mountaintop-watch-the-trailer/

Image

Neil Young and Crazy Horse have announced a new documentary chronicling the creation of their forthcoming album Colorado. It’s called Mountaintop, and you can check out the film’s trailer below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6CRn71oi6Y&feature=youtu.be

Colorado marks Neil Young’s first record with Crazy Horse in seven years. The album arrives October 25 via Reprise, while Mountaintop hits theaters across North America on October 22, and in Europe and South America on November 18. Mountaintop is credited as a “a Bernard Shakey + dhlovelife film”—Bernard Shakey being Neil Young’s directorial pseudonym. The new documentary is one of 15 new films Young said he would be making.

Ahead of Colorado, Neil Young and Crazy Horse have shared two singles: “Milky Way” and “Rainbow of Colors.”

Neil Young says his US citizenship application is being held up because he uses marijuana

Image

Neil Young wants to become a US citizen and vote in the 2020 presidential election.

After Trump used Young's song "Rockin' in the Free World" during his presidential campaign announcement in 2015, Young said Trump had not been authorized to use his song and instead endorsed then-candidate Bernie Sanders.

And in 2018, Young criticized Trump's response to the wildfires in California that destroyed the songwriter's home.

According to Trump, the photo was taken after Young asked for investment in his Pono service.
