Totally agree Jan. He's influenced so many bands and because of his versatility he's managed many different genres
He has a great attitude towards music and doesn't give a shit what anyone thinks which is shown through the music he did during the eighties

This is a good pace to talk about Buffalo Springfield and CSN(Y) as well I think

I don't have any of his music.

Could anyone suggest a starting point?
How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me?

For solo stuff I'd suggest Neil Young. Great intro for his folk stuff. After that After the Goldrush and Harvest are pretty essential.
For Crazy Horse you should listen to Everybody knows this is Nowhere first I think.

If your more into rock rather than folk, the best album you could get is Rust Never Sleeps but all his late 70's albums are really good (specially On The Beach and Tonight's the Night)

So first Neil Young and Everybody knows this is Nowhere.
Then After the Goldrush and Rust Never Sleeps

Like iasc said, add some Crosgy, Stills, Nash & Young to the stew ("Deja vu" is highly recommended) and some Buffalo Springfield, then you got it. If you feel adventurous, check out the Dead Man soundtrack, veeeeery atmospheric.

Young's Tonight's the Night album was absolutely fantastic. From the lyrics to the way he sang it, it really was one of the closest things to heartbreaking sorrow ever recorded. Even in the more uptempo songs, they had a rather pessimistic quality. In much the same way that the Temple of the Dog made you feel for Wood's loss, this album shows the loss felt for Whitten and Crazy Horses' roadie Berry.

Also, in the past few years Neil Young has been releasing a lot of his older concerts on CD. Check out his concert from the Fillmore East. It really is quite legendary and has one of the best versions of Cowgirl in the Sand ever.

I love the acoustic version at massey hall.
But that is just an amazing song

That was his "comeback album" after the eighties which no-one seemed to like at the time (the 80s albums that is).
It is a very good album.

By the Way if anyone has a link to an electric version of Crime In The City it would be very much appreciated

im getting really into Neil Young,although so far I only have Harvest, Rust Never Sleeps, and this one other album I actually cant remember what it's called ATM because I don't like it that much :lol: It's okay i just haven't listened to it a ton. It's like everybody knows this is nowehre or something.

Anyway, I love Rust Never Sleeps. Especially the song Ride My Llama. Harvest is awesome too Old man and A Man Needs a Maid are really really special songs.

No thread for Neil Young ?? Or can't I just find it...? :weird:

Lately I've been listening to his albums a lot. It seems I always keep getting back to the 1978 album "Comes A Time". Has to be one of my favorite albums of all times! I just love it 8D

I love Neil Young a whole lot...

Have you got his book, Waging Heavy Peace? He's a great writer. A lot of fantastic stories in that thing, like when David Crosby thinks he's crazy for collecting model trains.

This song has always meant a lot to me
