Alphabet Beats #164: Y is for....Young as in Neil

Y is for....






I decided to split this Neil Young post into two with today focusing on the Solo releases and tomorrow focusing on the releases with his band Crazy Horse.

He's had a lot of output over the years, not all of it great mind you but the ones that are not so great are interesting from the fact that Young is his own man and he does what he wants even when the Record Label is left scratching their heads wondering what on earth has landed on their desk!

Of his solo material the ones that stand out for me are 'After the Gold Rush', 'Harvest', 'American Star 'n' Bars', 'Freedom' and 'Harvest Moon'.

Some of the live material as well is quite a fascinating listen. His set for MTV's 'Unplugged' is superb I think.

He's been on the go since 1960. Wow! 55 years of performing! He still putting out new music as well and doesn't look likely he'll be stopping anytime soon.

As can be expected there's loads of links, click on them to hear Mr Young in action.
