The best of Neil Young.

Apr 24, 2017

I had heard most of the songs on the radio before, but I discovered one song, track 12 that I had never heard before. I was surprised to read how early so many of his big hits came (1969-71).

Originally from Toronto, Ontario - Neil Percival Young (born November 12, 1945), is a singer-songwriter, musician, producer, director and screenwriter. From his early solo albums and those with his backing band Crazy Horse, Young has recorded a steady stream of studio and live albums, sometimes warring with his recording company along the way.

Young's often-distorted electric guitar work, deeply personal lyrics and signature tenor singing voice transcend his long career. Young also plays piano and harmonica on many albums which frequently combine folk, rock, blues and other musical styles.

A multiple music-award winner - Young has been inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice: as a solo artist in 1995 and in 1997 as a member of Buffalo Springfield. In 2000, Rolling Stone named Young the 34th greatest rock 'n roll artist.

This "Greatest Hits" CD contains 16 tracks in all which were recorded by Young (along with accompanying musicians) primarily in the years between 1969-1978. Three of my favourites are - Down By The River, Cinnamon Girl, and Southern Man.... (*Watch music-video*)

It's been a while since I listened to Neil Young. He still sends shivers down my spine. Glad I found this in the stacks. Excellent digital recording done right (even if Neil doesn't think so.) Well worth checking out. Especially if you were of the age, even if you aren't. Check this out.

A true Canadian music legend - and the songs here prove it

After more than forty years making his music, Neil Young has a special place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Few artist are as prolific throughout their career. Whether he is on stage with his band or singing alone with just his guitar, you know he is something special. He is the evidence of the genius of Neil Young. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
