CLASSIC LAID BACK NEIL YOUng
on 3 June 2010
I have had this recording for a few decades on tape cassete, and have been intending to replace that copy with CD, which I have just done. This to me has always been one of Neil Young's better albums, and he does have very many great ones out there. The overall feel is of country rock with a slant towards folk and whilst I really love it when he rocks out with Crazy Horse, it is the songs such as those on Comes A Time that I tend to come back to first. This recording I would class as being in the style of Harvest, Harvest Moon, After The Gold Rush, and Prairie Wind to name a few. A relaxing listen that provides a feeling of warmth. All the tracks are good, but Comes A Time / Look Out For My Love / Human Highway / Goin' Back and the cover of Four Strong Winds are for me the outstanding songs. Of these, Four Strong Winds would possibly be the best known tack here. (On the Prairie Wind DVD, before singing Four Strong Winds, NY explains that he would play this song, written by Ian Tyson, regularly on the juke box when he was growing up in Canada)
A great and very under-rated CD well worth a listen.
