I`m happy to own this album, but that is speaking mainly as it completes my NY collection.
I`m not likely to listen to it very often. Not that there is a great deal wrong - its a rock `n` roll record in the truest sense - but the thing that renders this important is the reason he did it; his two-fingered salute to David Geffen who had refused to release the countrified "Old Ways", and demanded a true rock and roll record, something more "representative"...well, as Neil himself has said, "If you`re going to TELL me to do something, you better be absolutely sure what you want".

"Payola Blues" is probably the only song with some sort of meaning - "No matter what I do, I never hear my song on the radio" - but that isn`t the point. If you have a real point to make, you probably don`t dress up in silver and slick your hair back and wrap up ten songs in just over 24 minutes! "Everybody`s Rockin`" is a brilliant statement, not a brilliant record.

It`s hard to put into words my total admiration for Mr Young, but his unwavering belief and determination to remain "in the ditch" and experimenting when he could give everyone "Harvest Vol.23", "The Rust Still Isn`t Sleeping", or "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere Again"...well, you just have to respect this man and everything he has done, and continues to do. It really is about the music. You might not like it all, but that is almost the point! I can`t think of any other musician who actually delivers on record the same integrity that he talks about off-record.

Geffen accused him of not being 'Neil' enough and asked for something old sounding. He responded with music from the fifties. For that reason alone I really like this album :)

What a great album! Neil may have been sticking a finger or two up to the company but he still made a great album (I can remember the fifties), albeit a bit short.

This is wonderful. I am sure that Neil Young had a lot of fun making this and I know that I had a lot of fun listening to it.
The album is a collection of ten songs in fifties rock and roll style. Lots of echo especially on the vocals, syrupy backing vocals, classic twelve bar chord progressions. Added in are occasional bursts of harmonica that sound like sixties Dylan. It's great.
The songs all sound fresh and explore many differet facets of the period. The lyrics range from from the pastiche of "JellyRoll Man" to a strident complaint about the music business in "Payola Blues" all delivered with Neil Young's characteristic vocal range.
You only get 25 minutes of music for your money on this album but I guess that, in that time, Neil Young said just about all that he had to say in this style. More would probably have lead to some degree of repetition.
This album will not appeal to everyone but any Neil Young fan with a sense of humour will enjoy it.

I had this at one time on vinyl and liked it a lot. It has taken a long time to come across it (accidently) on CD. It has a good time, nostalgic feel to the music.

Some people say that Neil did this record because people from Geffen asked him "A real rock and roll album" after he showed them songs from "old ways" album that Neil had recorded at that time (2 years later the album will be release, anyway). I'm 32 now and I can't understand the impact of hearing Neil singing a extremely simple rockabilly songs in the early 80's to an average fun. But for me it's a very enjoyable album with some 4 star songs like Wonderin', Payola blues and kinda fonda wanda. Maybe the classic covers are a litlle bit tacky and tremendously old fashioned like wondering wich made laugh at the first listening...

The clips of the album are deliberately miser and hilarious at the same time like cry, cry, cry, as you can see in youtube. Neil can'stand that nobody tells him what he must do...

Great record. Mostly overseen, and considered a crappy album. I like 'cause of its straightforward rock and roll sound. And i think the concept is well produced. A good collection of classics. Mail-delivered in Copenhagen, Denmark from the states within 2 weeks.

80's Neil Young is perhaps the most infamous decade of his career. At the beginning of the 80's he signed for Geffen records run by his former manager David Geffen six years later it would result in Geffen suing Young for making music that was not representative of Neil Young!! The 80's was Young experimenting with his music and also his persona with 'Trans' it was computers that influenced his music, with 1985's 'Old Ways' Young took on the persona of a country singer both these albums have songs to recommend them and then there is this album. Everybody's Rockin' is an album of rockabilly covers interspersed with Young originals this was not a particularly original concept The Band had returned to their roots with the wonderful 'Moondog Matinee' and John Lennon with his album 'Rock 'n' Roll'. What this album has in it's favour is that it is Young having fun, the music is joyous if not Young's best I particularly enjoyed ,Wonderin' , Kinda Fonda Wanda and Mystery Train all are played with a verve and a sense of fun. So this album is not Neil Young's best but is for me one of his most enjoyable. As for the lawsuit well Young made two more albums for Geffen that to say the least are lacklustre ['Landing On Water' and 'Life'] he left the label and returned to his natural home at Reprise beginning with the great blues influenced album 'This Notes For You' .
