I quite liked A Letter Home, I thought it was fun and the crackly sound worked for the song choices.Young did a cover of Needle of Death on 'A Letter Home', that (mostly shite) album he recorded a year or two ago in that 'record your own record' booth owned by Jack White.
It's an amazing song. As is Ambulance Blues.
It was three nights, "Cortez" was on the second night and "Ambulance Blues" was on the third night (which was the one I was at). The first night got "Campaigner"! Given that they recorded all the nights and released the Greendale section as a DVD with the album, I live in hope that he releases the full three nights (or at the very least a best of the second set from each night).A while back (circa 'Greendale'), Young played two nights acoustic and solo in Vicar Street. I went the first night and he finished with Cortez The Killer (it was fucking immense). My mates went the second night and he finished with Ambulance Blues. Still not sure which of us got the better deal.
I've seen him play six times and I've only seen him do "Cortez" once.He's plays Cortez regularly I think? I've seen him play it 2 or three times, I'd rather get Ambulance Blues now
Yeah, I will be. Even if he drops some clunkers into a set, the rest of the set usually more than makes up for it.I only managed about a song and a half of the Monsanto Years and I didn't bother with the Storytone one (unless that was that ghastly orchestral abomination). I presume you're going to see him this summer?
It's absolute dross, nothing but an extended ad for his shite eco-friendly (pah!) car.On a related note, has anyone read his biography (Waging Heavy Peace)?
It's totally mental. My old man (also a massive Youngers fan) was almost totally put off him in the process of reading it, so irredeemably shite did he consider it.
I could see where he was coming from, but I found it was bearable if I read it to myself in a Neil Young voice.
Was there not Time Fades Away and Tonight's The Night in between?It's mad to think that On The Beach was the album that followed Harvest. That must have been a shock for his audience at the time!
