Man’s a genius.
He’s too damn prolific, I find it hard keeping up with his recent albums!
Was just listening to his Unplugged album yesterday.

^this - do less stuff old man, you’re wearing me out!

Unplugged is amazing. Great version ‘World on a String’ on that.

Yep, it’s easily the best thing he’s done since Psychedelic Pill, and it’s more accessible than that album (no 27 minute jams!)

The second chorus on Green is Blue, when the harmonies kick, is achingly beautiful and sad.

41 solo studio albums in 40 years. Mental.

Its better to burn out than fade away my friend…

I think Shut It Down is my standout from the album on early listens.

New one is pretty good. In the Good Neil pile.
Current favourite NY performance:

That whole Farm Aid '94 performance is magical.

Thanks Neil! A particularly great ‘Change your Mind’, which he doesn’t do too often, one of my favourite long NY jams.

There’s a great story of him taking Graham Nash out in a rowing boat onto the lake at his ranch to listen to in-progress Harvest recordings.

To get it really loud, he was using whole buildings as speakers, and the lake was the best place to hear it. The left channel was rigged to a set of speakers in the open windows of the house and the right channel to a huge PA in the doorway of the barn.

Legend has it he shouted ‘more barn’ from the middle of the lake.

I think Nash has confirmed it was true, although Nash definitely recognizes the benefit of a great story.
