Greatest Hits comments
Great introduction to Neil Young. Every song is fantastic and of course, familiar. I have known for a long,time that this music is brilliant. I just did not know where to start. Hey, hey, my, my now I need to go back and listen to the albums.
About what you'd expect for a one CD release. A decent review, no real shocking omissions, just a competent compilation.
This release should have been a box set.
There will be different opinions, when the selection of tracks for a best of album with an artist with a long career has to be decided for. This especially must be the case with an artist like Neil Young, partly because his career has been long but also a musician who has changed his musical expression several times during this career. Above this, when only one CD is available, it seems a thankless task to select tracks with a total playing time, which may not exceed 80 minutes.
Broadly speaking, I think that this "Greatest Hits" is an excellent bid to provide an overview of Neil Young's career from 1969-91. Naturally there is a particular focus on the early years, when Young was undoubtedly at his most productive and innovative.
I do think, though, that it is a shame to choose two very long tracks from "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere." Both "Down By the River" and "Cowgirl In The Sand" are fine tracks, but are they suitable for a best of compilation? - they do take space for other relevant songs.
I especially miss '"See The Sky About two Rain" from "On the Beach", a strong album that is not even represented; the explanation for this must have something to do with rights.
"Do not Let It Bring You Down" and "I Believe in You" from "After the Gold Rush" would also have been an obvious choices.
I wonder also why "Out in the weekend" and the title track from "Harvest" are omitted.
Anyhow, most Young fans think that all of his 1970s records are albums to have in their whole; and this CD is only to be considered as an appetizer for more.
