    Oh man, that song is ten thousand tons of heaviness.  Talk about a deep cut.  That one goes to the bottom of one's soul.  But at the same time, it's one of those songs that's a soothing balm to the soul.  It's easy to get lost in that one.  Great pick.

    Should I have bought it (95 dollars)? Also had Le Noise and Living with War for $110 and Silver and Gold for $40


    Yes, you should have bought Are You Passionate, Le Noise and Living With War and sent them over to me!
    They were all part of a bunch of records that got damaged in a move years ago, and I haven’t been able to replace yet.
    Even for 100 a pop? :O

    they had sleeps with angels too.

    Yep, even for that price I would have been very tempted to get at least one of them. Probably all three.

    It wouldn’t have been the most I’ve paid for vinyl...

    I really want an original Le Noise on vinyl. I had to settle for the Bluray instead. much too expensive.

    Same here.  I blew it with that one.  When it came out, Dimple in Sacramento had the new vinyl for around $25 and at the time I thought that was way too much.  Dang!

    Glad I found a copy on CD back at the start of the year, remastered!

    I'm struggling to like 'Tonight's The Night'.

    I've given it a number of listens and it's not doing anything for me.
    It's rated as one of his best albums and is on Rolling Stone's top 500 greatest albums of all time list.

    I dig "Mellow My Mind" however. 

    Any fans of this album?

    There has always been something keeping me from being head over heels into it to:

    https://instagram.com/p/Bbh4_xflRw6/

    Following the death of Crazy Horse member Danny Whitten and roadie Bruce Berry Neil Young recorded this raw and painfully personal record - even including a note saying sorry to the listener for its personal nature. There's pretty much no production to separate Neil from me, and maybe that has a part in why I don't revisit the album that often. It sounds in part like demos in all the crudeness and Neils voice shifting in volume. Even though there are really great songs on it, e.g. World on a string, Borrowed tune and Tired Eyes.

    It's definitely one of my all-time favorite Neil Young albums with with a slight catch.  This is one that I only listen to late at night when in the right mood.  The more tired and depressed I am, the more I love this album.

    Tonight's The Night is my favorite album of all time by anyone.  I can't relate to any Neil Young fan not liking it but that's okay.  We don't all have to love the same music.

    "Roxy - Tonight's The Night Live" is Album of the Week on NYA, and Neil has posted some interesting insight into the TTN sessions.
    Looks like the original version of TTN will be included in the Archives Volume 2 box set :smiley:

    What is everyone's favourite album?
    I really love On The Beach. 
    What next?  Going to ask which family member I love the most?  :lol: 

    Oh, that's tough!  If I had to go with one and only one as a favorite, a lot would depend on when I answered.  But that's copping out on the question! 

    OK, I'll go with Rust Never Sleeps.  The first time I heard Rust I was at a small intimate party outdoors in the countryside  in Windsor CA (before it was ruined and turned into a wealthy Sonoma County suburb) on a perfect late spring evening.  It was magic.  Such a great album and I really love the two differing sides that somehow make total sense.  And the album builds and is sequenced perfectly.  One of the greatest.

    Elliot Roberts, Neil’s friend and manager for over 50 years, has passed away.

    Ralph Molina just confirmed the sad news on Facebook a little while ago:

    Elliot was described in Jimmy McDonough’s “Shakey” biography like this:

      "There have been other infamous artist/manager teams in rock and roll – Dylan and Albert Grossman. Ray Charles and Joe Adams, Bruce Springsteen and Jon Landau – and, of course, Elvis and Colonel Tom Parker. Elliot Roberts definitely resides in that hall of infamy – and is the only human capable of guiding Neil Young's career."  
      "Neil likes quirky people around him," said Elliot Roberts, Young's manager since the late sixties. "I think having quirky people around him lessens-in his mind-his own quirkiness. 'Yes, I am standing on my head, but look at these two other guys nude standing on their head.' " His mane of gray hair flying, Roberts was on his ninety-sixth phone call of the day, either chewing out some record-company underling or closing a million-dollar deal. Not far away, a bearded, sunglassed David Briggs- Young's producer-prowled the stage, palming a cigarette J.D.-style and looking like the devil himself. 
       Briggs and Roberts were the twin engines that powered the Neil Young hot rod. Feared, at times hated, both men possessed killer instincts and had been with Neil almost from the beginning. Roberts was a genius at pushing Young's career, Briggs at pushing his art. It's an understatement to say the two didn't always see eye to eye. Roberts and Briggs were two of the quirkiest characters around- difficult, complicated men-but then so was just about everybody and everything in Young's world. 
      "Let's look at Neil's whole trip-the ranch, the people he plays with," said computer wizard Bryan Bell, who worked extensively with Young in the late eighties. " 'Easy' isn't in the vocabulary."

    Oh, this is a huge loss.  Roberts was such a huge part of not just Neil's work over the years but, as Wikipedia lists them, these as well:

    Joni Mitchell
    Neil Young
    Buffalo Springfield
    Crosby, Still, Nash and Young
    Bob Dylan,
    The Eagles
    Tom Petty
    Talking Heads
    Devo
    Tracy Chapman,
    Spiritualized
    Mazzy Star
    Devendra Banhart
    The Alarm

    Very few in the world of music have had a resume like that.  Very say news.
