3.0 out of 5 stars Good Album, Can I Suggest Some Alternative Tracks !, 11 Jun 2009
This review is from: Greatest Hits [Cd Only] (Audio CD)
Neil Young is one of the greatest singer songwriters ever.
I would put Bob Dylan above him, but he is easily in the company of Johnny Cash, and I think he outshines such top artists as Jackson Browne and Gene Clark, to mention just two.
Neil has played nearly every type of music, rock, folk, country, rock and roll, even electronic stuff on Trans.
This CD has some fantastic tracks: Helpless, Ohio and Rocking In The Free World.
The very best are: After The Goldrush, Southern Man, The Needle and The Damage Done, Old Man, Like A Hurricane and Heart Of Gold.
Missing tracks: I would have chosen Philidelphia, from the same named film, and the sad On The Beach.
If you enjoy this album I suggest you check out Neil's self titled debut, After The Gold Rush, Harvest, On The Beach and Trans.

You seem to like it, so why only 3 stars (I'm quite conservative with mine, but your review indicates at least 4).

Hi Alex,
Yes you're right, 4 stars better reflects this CD.
Only problem is that while I can edit the text, I can't change the star rating!

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the question, yes Bruce sang Streets Of Philidelphia, however on the soundtrack album Neil contributed a lovely slow ballard Philidelphia, which I have'nt seen on any other collection.

Regards, Jerry.
