Buffalo Springfield - We’ll See (demo)
This one’s much faster than the box set one. I like this one more.
Neil Young - Guitar Solo 2
(Dead Man Soundtrack)
The Mynah Birds - I’ll Wait Forever
(Neil Young/Ricky Matthews)
The Mynah Birds - Go On and Cry
“The Mynah Birds were a R&B band based in Toronto, Ontario in the 1960s. Although the band never released an album, it is famous as one of the earliest efforts of a number of musicians who went on to be hugely successful, including Rick James and Neil Young, as well as Bruce Palmer (Buffalo Springfield). These recordings were thought to be lost but resurfaced a few years ago.”
Neil Young - Scattered (let’s Think about Livin’)
I am heading to North Carolina for the Week to visit my brother. This is the first of a couple of Queued Posts that I have set up for your edification.
Neil Young - Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown
(Tonight’s The Night)
Of all the ancient song-gods of the boomer years, secret Canadian Neil Young is said to be the one most worshipped by the OG indie-rockers we know and love. Everyone from Franky Black to Westerberg to Mark Arm to Yngwie Malmsteen wanted to be Neil Young when they grew up, and for a long time I just couldn’t understand why. I studied my Harvests and Gold Rushes and that one that sounds like the title of a Modest Mouse album and (aside from Mascis’s leisurely meowl) I couldn’t hear a thing that translated to that fuzzy Gen-X goodness.
Then one day I heard Tonight’s The Night, and it all made sense.
Neil Young (with The Band and Joni Mitchell) — Helpless
Baby, sing with me somehow.
I’ve Loved Her So Long - Neil Young
Thrasher - Neil Young
It was then I knew I’d had enough,
Burned my credit card for fuel
Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
And my suitcase in my hand
How I lost my friends I still don’t understand.
Sad Memory - Buffalo Springfield
So sad, yet so beautiful. Written and sung by Richie Furay. Him (vocals and acoustic guitar) and Neil Young (electric lead guitar) are the only members of the band who were present when this song was recorded September 5, 1967.
I feel like every time I start listening to Buffalo Springfield a lot again, I discover a bunch of new things depending on the member of the band I’m crushing on at the moment.
Powderfinger - Neil Young
Raised my rifle to my eye
Never stopped to wonder why
Then I saw black
And my face splashed in the sky
Neil Young - What Did You Do To My Life
Expecting To Fly - Buffalo Springfield
