I saw this tour at the Gorge on a beautiful, drizzly, crisp night. Still goes down as probably my best concert .... well, there was that Pink Floyd show with VIP tickets ... but if I got to choose only one to see again it would be Neil. -Curt

A Neil Young poll!! What an appreciation of an exceptional artist. Great music never dies. Humm.... kind of like "Rust never sleeps". Without dating myself, there are some members here who actually bought those albums when they were first released.

I call this a "Sophie's Choice" type question. (The movie in which she has to choose which child's life she will spare.) Kind of like asking your favorite hiking destination, to the exclusion of all others. That said, the winner is...............Cowgirl in the Sand....both the longer version with Crazy Horse and the live version of CSNY.

So hard to choose.. I picked Southern man..it rocks out pretty hard. I got to see Neil play quite a few times.. cool.gif Wild realization of the age gap on the way back from the Olympics.. I looked at Dane and commented on listening to some Neil Young..Dane looks at me and replies "Who's Neil Young"..I was almost in shock eek.gif

"Cinnamon Girl" is my favorite Neil Young song, but my fave song he's recorded is the first song I learned on guitar, from "Comes a Time", my favorite NY album, ladies and gentlemen I give you wait for it... That old Ian and Sylvia classic, "Four strong winds" Do any of you remember Neil's rockabilly turn with The Shocking Pinks? I actually liked that album.

For me it's a tie between "Cortez" and "Powderfinger" Those were the first songs I remember my dad playing on his new record player when I was like 6. shakehead.gif

Yeah I have plenty of Neil on vinyl . . . 8-track and cassette too! bagger.gif One of the great things about Neil is the easy access to bootlegs. I also love many of the bands he has profoundly influenced; e.g. Sonic Youth and j. mascis. up.gif

Akula and Toonces---there's more than one old enough to have bought all his stuff as first releases. Neil is one of my favorites...hard to pick one. May be Rust Never Sleeps...

So many good ones...
Wow. Out of the list, and thinking as a guitarist, I'd have to say Rockin' in the Free World. After seeing him do that on SNL in like '89 or something, I thought it just might have been the fiercest performance I'd seen to date. There are so many more, though. A couple I haven't seen mentioned are Long May You Run and Roll Another Number. Harvest Moon is a fave to play, along with Powderfinger. Comes a Time , Unknown Legend, and of course, F*@#in Up!, which ties in nicely to the aforementioned Piece of Crap. If I never heard Cinnamon Girl again, that would be fine.
