    I just hope that he releases a live CD from the current tour with The Promise Of
    The Real. The concert I saw in Detroit in July was extraordinary.

    I have always thought that Live Rust is one of the best albums of all time. Does anyone else agree?

    I'm sure I would agree if I could get an unedited CD of it....

    Mr-Beagle Ah, but the song carries on, so holy

    Mirror Ball was the first album that left me cold. Unfortunately several more have followed.

    Come on Neil, give the east coast the Buffalo Springfield shows that you decided not to go through with.

    I saw Neil for the first time early last year at Massey Hall.
    It was an all acoustic show.
    Amazing night. I still get chills when I think about it.
    Before the show, my brother in law and I stood behind Massey Hall where Pocahontas was parked.
    He signed my Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere CD cover.
    Now a cherished possession.
  16. Neil & I share a birthdate, November 12th. It's usually pretty cold outside, especially in Winnipeg.

    If Neil Young and Paul Bunyan got in a fight, who would win?

    I say Babe the blue ox would stop it.

    How about that pattern on the inside sleeve of the original 'On The Beach' vinyl release?

    Super cool

    I still listen regularly to Weld. That is Neil Young and Crazy Horse at their finest backing up a record that is, arguably, one of Young's best and definitely one of his heavier outings. Great cuts on Weld; too many to mention, really. Arc? Uh, I think he was too influenced by Sonic Youth or something. I like noise projects (Melvins, SunnO))), Boris) but I still don't know what he was doing with that one. Woah.

    I still remember Neil's version of "Rockin' in the Free World" from Saturday Night Live. Steve Jordan on drums, Charlie Drayton on bass, and Frank Sampedro on guitar. Pure rock fury for the 6 or 7 minutes that track ran on TV. I've yet to see a performance like that on live TV except maybe Fear when they did SNL in the Belushi years.

    Studio wise, I think I listen to Freedom more than any other album. That was a mind blowingly good album for its time. It still blows my mind that he came up with such a strong record after a string of fairly bad records in the 80's. Freedom took Neil into the 90's with strong, strong momentum.

    I'm opting for a legit CD...vinyl does not work for me.

    For a few years in the early to mid-'80s, he was my favorite artist of all. And not because of his '80s albums, but because it was only then that I started catching up on his magnificent '70s work.

    Top five albums:

    After the Gold Rush
    Tonight's the Night
    Comes a Time
    Rust Never Sleeps

    And, speaking of Freedom, he staged one of the greatest comebacks of all time:
