As most people may have already seen, Neil Young and Bob Dylan will both be playing the first BST Summer Time concert in Hyde Park next year. Big problem for me is top price tickets (to the only area where the sound is decent!) are £320 each  :-X Both BBC4 and Sky Arts are bidding to show highlights so I’ll have to make do with that

Barclaycard were sponsors the last time he played Hyde Park in 2014, so why does he have a problem with them now but, presumably, not then?

Zuma is definitely my favourite Horse album (even if there are variations from the Horse theme within) - and probably my favourite Neil album full stop.  But Ragged Glory is brilliant (the last stone cold cert no debate classic?), and this will be nice to hear, which is almost certainly something we'll never be uttering about a new Neil album again.

Harvest Moon ahead of Harvest? You gotta be kidding.  :o

But then I like Long May You Run so what do I know?  :)

I'd put Are You Passionate higher up the list. Only time I've seen him live was when he had or was about to release that album.

It's well worth having a rant at with oneself!  I wrote elsewhere it is a little revisionist, but some of that revisionism I rather care for (I'm not a fan of Harvest for instance).  I cheered when I saw Landing on Water at the bottom, but tbh some of the 21st century albums are worse than that...  In general I do rather care for the top half of the table though...it's quite similar to how a list of mine might look - although Sleeps with Angels hasn't aged well, I don't think...it's not a Top 10er, surely?.  On the other hand, Life, Old Ways and Everybody's Rockin' are all much better than their placings suggest.  Opinions, eh?   ;) ;D

As I (half) said above (or is it below) I'm not really a fan of either, but that does seem a somewhat deliberately perverse decision!

I'm not desperately surprised to see Fork In The Road and Americana languishing fairly low down but along with Freedom, they are probably my favourite post-Seventies Neil albums.

I read this earlier this evening. It is of course nonsense on all sorts of levels. Ridiculously high placing for Le Noise which is unlistenable to me. Old Ways by contrast should be much higher.

And how dare they put Landing On Water last?  ;)

Genuinely there are probably 10 albums on that list that I would place below it.

He has no quality control button - there's probably 10 albums on the list that should never have seen the light of day.

I agree with this.

On form, he's one of the greats but he's probably made more bad albums than anyone else I regard myself a fan of. However, he's so diverse, I'm pretty sure if I listed either my ten favourites or the ten I'd happily organise burnings for, I'd get a bunch of replies telling me what a cloth-eared buffoon I was.  :)


Title: Re: Neil Young

In truth I'd probably put 10 albums below Landing too...sadly they'd all be recorded in the last 20 years.

I see that Archives 2 is in the works. It’s a lovely looking box, but isn’t a lot of it already out (Tuscaloosa, Live at The Roxy et al)? Although according to the track listing I saw I guess a lot of people will be looking forward to the live versions of ‘Stringinan’ and that old Saturday night TV staple ‘Lotto Love’. 😁

Tuscaloosa


Apropos of nothing at all to do with Neil Young, I spent far more of my life than I really wanted to working in Tuscaloosa, Alabama...

I helped design and build Sprint's Alabama mobile phone service from there. College town I remember, and with a massive football stadium. Mercedes Benz had a plant there too if I recall. Most abiding memory was of a 'restaurant' that had 5 words on its menu: "Steak", "Ribs", "Pork", "Chicken", "Pie" (Pie was desert.)

Sorry, sudden flashback. Do carry on.

As someone on another forum points out - another week, another unreleased Neil Young album. It might be interesting to see what the Trans band sound like on ‘normal’ songs. Mind you, it’s not out yet, and you know what he’s like for the old release date switcheroo. https://americana-uk.com/neil-young-announces-release-of-lost-album-johnnys-island
