    I like the sound of “spinning plates on 15 or so archival releases”

    I only really want to hear news about the Ragged Glory expanded deluxe release. Neil can just take my cash for that one, no questions asked.

    Confirmed by Neil. 2LP reissue with some bonus tracks - Ragged Glory / Smell The Horse.
    It was originally due out earlier this year but got delayed due to the vinyl shortages.

    This is great news. Been tempted to pull the trigger on an OG, but maybe I'll wait out the reissue.

    The reissue should hopefully sound better. Ragged Glory is one of my favourite Neil records, but there’s too much music on there for one LP.

    That garage sound doesn't hold a candle to Harvest/Harvest Moon-Neil.

    Also, Broken Arrow is the better Crazy Horse album. FIGHT ME IN A GAME OF DARTS

     am sitting in a restaurant eating dinner and The Needle and the Damage Done is playing. I asked my wife if it would be rude to tell everybody to quiet down so I could hear it? She said yeah. I disagree.

    Wrong.  Ragged Glory is better.  I prefer Year of the Horse to Broken Arrow.

    She's right. Way better to go home and play it with headphones on.

    Haha no way, Ragged Glory is my favourite NYCH album. But Broken Arrow is great too.
    One of my personal favourites is Sleeps with Angels. Change Your Mind is one of the best things they've done, for sure.

    Sleeps with angels is greatttttttttt.

    The 90s was crazy for Neil. Such quality output.

    I'll jump in just for the hell of it.

    Of the album mentioned above, in order of my preference, highest to lowest (but none are "bad"):
    Ragged Glory
    Broken Arrow (possible would have topped or at least equaled RG if side 2 were on par with side 1)
    At least 7 or 8 other NY, and NY and CH albums
    Harvest or Harvest Moon (take your pick)

    But Harvest and Harvest Moon are the best of all times. best. of all. times. all times. best.

    I prefer Silver and Gold over Harvest Moon, but it's close.

    One of the beautiful things about music is that we experience it uniquely.  None of us will ever hear music the same way anyone else does and no one else will ever hear it the way we do.  So, really, if you think about it, it is impossible to say what record is "best".  If someone told me "Old Ways is Neil Young's best record", they would be correct... for them.
    Besides, what universal trait could make one piece of music "better" than another?  Is complexity of composition?  The consideration of the proliferation of alliteration  in the lyrics?  The greater or lesser likelihood of different music to create tinnitus when played at the same volume? The number of units sold (beep beep)?
    For me, it's what feeds my soul, sparks my imagination, and rolls my socks.  And it's pretty much different every day.

    Beautifully put, thank you. I’ve been mulling over the Duke Ellington(?) quote about there only being two types of music: good and bad, but I don’t quite agree. I believe there’s music I like, and music I don’t like as much. And what I don’t like is probably someone else’s treasure, lol.

    Back on topic, Sleeps With Angels is probably my favourite Young album, mainly because that’s the album where he clicked for me, and Change Your Mind is just a beautiful track, both musically and lyrically.

    Exactly. We even hear it ourselves different depending on where we are mentally or emotionally at any given moment. There have been times where I have listened to a song dozens of times, only to hear it again and have it impact me at that moment in a way that it never had before. Any art, including music, maybe especially music, is completely subjective.

    The Greedy Hand store has fixed up the NYA members discount now. All items should now be eligible.

    I just ordered the the Harvest 50th box set for under $90 with free shipping.
    I also picked up the ATGR 50th box set as well because I'm a sucker with no will power! (it was only $40 with the discount)

    Perfect!

    And also to go back on topic- had my first listen to World Record today.  I like all of it, and love some of it.  "Chevrolet" is an easy 5 star number!

    I've always wondered about this:  at about the 4:45 mark, kick in the ass from Poncho, or near miss? :lol:

    I had to look up the quote because it was bugging me and it seems there’s actually a couple versions, I prefer Ellington’s version, lol. It was Louis Armstrong who labeled music as good or bad, apparently.

    I could see cutting Louis Armstrong some slack on this assuming he might have been frustrated by the fact that white musicians and bands (good though they may have really been) like Benny Goodman, the Dorseys, Glenn Miller, Harry James, et al, were raking in large sums of money and had the freedom to play and go anywhere those chose,  while black artists were underpaid and (at the very least in the south) were restricted by where they could eat and spend the night, etc. 
    If his motives for saying there is "bad" music were otherwise, I would respectfully disagree.
