    Picked up a few more replacement Neil records to fill in some gaps in my collection:

    I've always liked Trans, it's a very misunderstood record. Everybody's Rockin is a harmless bit of fun, but I fully accept that Landing On Water is pretty awful! :)

    Those were the three Neil Young records, together with Life and Reactor that you always found when looking for used vinyl. Seems a lot of people (in Sweden atleast) bought and didn't want to keep those.
    Really like Trans and Reactor though.

    Trans is cool! A few cuts don't hold up so well but mostly great and the really good stuff is terrific!

    Unbelievably, I still don't have the Shocking Pinks LP. 36 Neil albums but no Shocking Pink!

    Recently repurchased Landing on Water because I had to hear "Hippie Dream" again!

    I hope Neil is ok... and I hope he is recording a classic album on his hiatus... I also expect to see a massive CSNY tour in the next few years...

    and hopefully Farm Aid is near the east coast again this year

    I haven't heard much about the Old Man lately. Any idea what he's up to?

    What makes you expect him playing with Crosby ever again?

    I hope he's focusing on Archives volume 2. And thinking about a Mirrorball 2

    Yeah, a CSNY reunion is unlikely although you never know with these guys. First it was Crosby slamming Young for dating Hannah. Then came Crosby's apology to Young and Hannah. Then it was Nash saying "I don't want anything to do with Crosby..." The it was Crosby tearing into Young again, this time over comment Young made about Trump using his music. Then it was Nash saying Crosby “ripped the heart out of CSNY. He’s been awful for me the last two years, just fucking awful. I’ve been there and saved his fucking ass for 45 years, and he treated me like shit.” Meanwhile, Stills just keeps plugging along, probably trying to ignore all the hype and B.S.

    They should get together and do a cover of the Ramones' "We're a Happy Family".

    Maybe a SNY-tour?

    Hey Brian, welcome back!
    But what do you mean you don't have Kinda Fonda Wanda on vinyl? Shame on you! =)

    Fantastic! A really great collection of Neil's first 10 years. Definitely recommended for those who don't have it. Hopefully it will have the same cool gatefold layout
