5.0 out of 5 stars NO BETTER INTRODUCTION TO NEIL YOUNG, 30 Dec 2009
This review is from: Decade [VINYL] (Vinyl)
As a first year student back in 1979/80, I was first introduced to Neil Young by a good friend through this compilation of the best of his work from the Buffalo Springfield era of the 1960s to his solo work up to the mid 70s. Because of that introduction, I still would regard this (tripple LP on vinyl as it was then) as my all time favourite N.Y. album. For me this is the starting point. This release includes most of the styles we have now come to associate with N.Y. (Rock, Country and Country Rock). From this point I have gone on to explore his varied output (Some great, some good and some downright terrible) and have remained a fan to this day. I will not bore you with a listing of the great songs contained within this release but I will say that there is not a single bad song anywhere and all the classics from that era are included (Hurricane; Heart of Gold; Harvest; Cortez The Killer; Long may You Run; Cowgirl In The Sand; Down By The River etc. etc. etc.) . I have aquired at least 80% of his releases since the date of Decade being released, but in recent years have started to purchase the late 60s, early 70s recordeing from which this compilation was taken. If you wish to sample the genius of Neil young, I can think of no better starting point than Decade. It is essentially the only N.Y. album you will ever need, but I would suggest that you do not stop there as there are so many great N.Y. albums.
