Neil Young – Glastonbury 2009

Nothing so far at this years Glastonbury that’s a patch on Neil’s string shredding antics from 2009, in my humble opinion.

The links on the original post are now defunct, so it’s a perfect time repost.

Keep on Rockin’

Neil Young – Needle & the Damage Done

Neil Young – Words (Between the Lines of Age)

Neil Young – Get Behind the Wheel

Neil Young – Keep On Rockin’ In the Free World

Neil Young – A Day In The Life

Neil Young “Long May You Run The Illustrated History” (Voyageur Press 2010)

Picked up a copy of this last week whilst window shopping on holiday – then a few days later reading Mojo there was a positive review – which is spot on in my opinion, then today I read another article here about it.

Recommend it to any casual fan (assuming the fanatics have it anyway) of Neil Young there are some great visuals and as the two reviews attest the writing is excellent too.

Long May You Run (five live and the original)

Buy Emmylou Harris – Long May You Run

Buy Josh Ritter – Long May You Run

Buy The Duke & The King – Long May You Run

Buy Willy Clay Band – Long May You Run

Buy Neil Young – Long May You Run

Buy The Stills-Young Band – Long May You Run

Neil’s new album Le Noise is only around the corner – having listen to some live versions of the tracks here and read some of the pre-release articles (here, here ,here and of course here) I’m definitely looking forward to it’s release, the CD/DVD “deluxe” version sounds like a must have.
