    Man, I picked up World Record a few weeks ago and I keep coming back to it again and again, lol. I think the main reason is the simplicity and sincerity of its message (as I perceive it, lol), along with the musical variety. I more or less read it as Neil’s love letter to the planet and reading about its genesis and recording was interesting as well.

    Several times now I’ve listened to the album back-to-back, something I don’t remember doing for years if not decades, lol, and it’s getting significantly more play than both Happiness Bastards and Dark Matter (which are both incredibly solid albums).

    Getting really jazzed for the show in July, happy to see Love Earth appearing regularly!

    This album’s also given me my favourite lyric in years:

    Because the Earth has held me so
    I never will let go 
    I never will let go
    I never will let go
    "The world is full of idiots and I am but one of them."

    he should play more from Broken Arrow

    Yes!  Some only so-so songs on that record, but the really good stuff is amazing.  I would love to see, for example, "Slip Away" done live.  Such a mesmerizing song!

    This might seem like a bizarre request but if anyone catches a clue on social media, etc about where the band's travels may take them on this off day a heads up would be awesome.

    Am attending an event with a TBA musical performance and there are only so many artists that logically line up even though it's crazy to consider.

    I'd love to hear "Loose Change" get an outing but I'm not sure if Neil is too into that one. It's rarely been played live. Love that song.

    On an unrelated note, I'm listening to the song "On The Beach" right now and thinking that this is not only my favourite Neil song, but one of the greatest songs ever recorded. The atmosphere of that song is something I've rarely come across elsewhere. Unbelievable music and lyrics to match.

    Oh man, YES!  Loose change is such a great song.  My idea of "meditation" (or "medication", for that matter, lol) is listening to Loose Change and getting lost in that long extended single chord part.  Good call, Edved!

    Apart from Big Time (2018) and Scattered (this tour) Neil hasn’t played anything from Broken Arrow since 1997. We know Big Time was soundchecked last week, so there’s always a chance.

    He has only played Loose Change 7 times, all of them in 1996. Only Changing Highways has been played less. It would be a super-deep cut if he broke it out now.

    I wonder if he avoids those songs because the pain- even after all this time- of losing David Briggs is just too much?

    Wow, talk about digging deep into the way-back machine! 
    Every time I think about early Neil Young and Crazy Horse, I remember sitting on the floor in my girl friend's parent's living room listening to Everybody Knows... and After the Gold Rush.  Magic moments, those.

    I hope he keeps putting out releases like Early Daze. Start Collecting the rareties from the box sets and the NYA on vinyl. These are day 1 NY releases IMO and I'm not waiting for a deep Amazon discount for those.

    Amazing show and great energy. Really impressed how he can still do it at that age.

    I said it before but we're blessed to still have Neil, Billy and Ralph around and have them playing live shows. There's something really magical about seeing them on stage.
