He's a polarizing guy. I've known people who absolutely cringe at the sound of his singing, and I've known people who would travel 600 miles to hear him. I don't know of another act like that.....except maybe Willie Nelson

My old room mate and I had an agreement, he wouldn't play the Grateful Dead when I was home and I wouldn't play Neil Young when he was home. We got along just fine as a result.

I'll take Willie, not Neil. But maybe I just don't like Neil's songs.

LOL.. my college roommate and I had a similar arrangement. He wouldn't play his Frank Zappa albums, and I wouldn't throw his Frank Zappa albums off the balcony.


(yes, albums, and I know I just dated myself)

My first college roommate was my introduction to Zappa - FOREVER grateful!

heh... my roomates threatened me with death whenever I played my Leon Redbone album. So I'd only play it when I was angry at them. I still have that album. My kids hate it. My wife doesn't like it either.

And I'm in the 'rather listen to Neil than Willie ' camp. Something about his voice. But I will listen to Willie.

I've even listened to David Grohl's singalong band...

Not a Neil guy myself, but aside from that, I'm struck by the quality of that video. Not much live music footage from that era that looks anywhere near that good.

As far as roommates' music goes, I had a real doozy my sophomore year. My roommate had a 5 disc carousel that was permanently filled with Van Halen. He HAD to fall asleep to it every night.

Oh, and Willie ALL the way!

I think it's film. He overpowered the mic in this version and there is way more reverb than I would have chosen. A slightly better audio balance/capture on a record company 'official' channel (WB, Vef03k5i8VI), but the video is like 240p.

I have only had one roommate where I couldn't fully appreciate his taste in music. Neil over Willie. I might own one Willie album (might have been given one, I wouldn't have bought it). I think I have three Neil (not counting other bands). I would choose Zappa over Grateful Dead about 90% of the time.

I've seen that one before. Those English and German music shows made the American shows look like home movies. I have an arrangement here, too--No Neil, Willie, GD, RS, Who, or Doors. If you can't handle Zappa, Beefheart, Gentle Giant, Gong, and King Crimson, don't come over, lol.

I have never owned either a Neil or a Willie album. Weird how that became an either/or....But I hope to see Neil again.

Willie's right up there (or is it down there?) with Bob Dylan. Although if push came to shove, I might actually listen to a Dylan song or two.

CDs are 'albums', too. 'Album' is a generic term: LP record albums, CD albums, photo albums. . .

A common error. Just one I feel impelled to correct. old fogey smiley

Thanks for that hal, it truly illustrates what an incredible talent Neil was and is. His songs go straight to the heart.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I generally refer to CDs as "records." Which makes sense, as CD is analogous to LP, which are most often referred to as records.

I guess that's better than calling everything "tapes."

I really enjoyed that! Thanks! thumbs up

I like Neil's music. IMO, easier to listen to than some of the other names listed above.

Was this during his heroin days? Looks to be in the early seventies. Anyone know?

Young's real strengths are his tunes (composing) and his lyrics. Like Dylan and Nelson fans, you have to make concessions for his singing voice; although he can carry a tune better than Dylan (or Johnny Cash)*.

*listen at around 2:42; cringeworthy

That's been my overall impression too, but his singing and voice are top-notch in the video in the OP.
