    Default Neil Young

    Old people of TC:

    If you had to recommend a Neil Young album to someone who was unfamiliar with his work (such as myself), which would it be?

    Hmm. Based only on listenability, and not one album so that you feel like you know his work as a whole, Ragged Glory.

    Work as a whole? You'll have to get two. Rust Never Sleeps or Weld (2-3 CDs each), and Lucky Thirteen.

    Studio Album, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.

    Live, I like Weld more but Rust Never Sleeps is good and maybe what you would expect from Neil Young.

    Harvest.

    Admittedly, that has nothing to do with getting to know his work (no electric for one thing)... It's just one I really like.

    I know i'm not old, but I'm very familiar with his stuff, and I've seen him live twice.

    In terms of getting to know his work, you're screwed, cause his work is pretty varied, but he has two sort of main styles, which are the grungy hard rock stuff and the acoustic singer-songwriter, country-ish stuff. The only album I can think of that has both of them and is amazing is Rust Never Sleeps, which is live.

    The recent Live At Massey Hall 1971 is great, it's all acoustic and it has a lot of songs on it he had either previously recorded electrically or would later record electrically. It's really great. I saw him at Massey Hall last year by the way -the first time he had played it since that 1971 concert. Massey Hall is amazing, he was amazing.

    Decade is a good one... two disc set of most of his best songs from 1967 to 1977.

    I've been listening to Harvest. That's good, but that's all I've ever heard so far.

    Everybody Knows This is Nowhere! It was my first Neil Young cd (and my favorite cd of all time). It's definitely more rocking than Harvest...

    Yeah, better than Harvest, but still primitive, like Neil hadn't found his voice yet.
