Mojo wants to know your top Neil album picks

Mister Soul, Neil YoungMojo magazine out of the UK invites you to have a little fun by sharing with them your top Neil Young album picks.

The magazine writes: “This month we’re delving back into the 45-year-strong back catalogue of a Canadian singer-songwriter whose music has oscillated from acoustic balladry to countrified rock, electronic experimentation to gnarly rockabilly, film soundtracks to anti-war polemic.”

Polemic? Had to look that one up:

“a strong written or spoken attack against someone else’s opinions, beliefs, practices, etc.” 

It goes on” “Which Neil Young albums are the best? And why? What about 1969′s hard-rocking Crazy Horse debut Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere or the following year’s solo work After The Gold Rush? Then there’s mega-hit Harvest and the mid-’70s Ditch Trilogy. Don’t forget his late ’70s run of albums – American Stars ‘n Bars, Comes A Time, Rust Never Sleeps – and his ’80s sonic adventures. What about the raging Ragged Glory and Sleeps With Angels or more recent releases such as Fork In The Road and Psychedelic Pill?”

LincVolt breakdown

LincVolt_stranded-in-Truckee-California

TRUCKEE, Calif. — It’s not every day you come across a rock music legend stranded in the Sierra.

But that’s what happened on Friday, Aug. 23, when singer-songwriter Neil Young’s one-of-a-kind, $1 million electric vehicle broke down on Interstate 80 near Donner Summit.

Officers with the Truckee branch of the California Highway Patrol came upon the stranded Young and helped him get off the highway. LincVolt_stranded-in-Truckee-California

After posing for a few photos and signing autographs, Young repaired his custom-built car and was back on the road, said CHP Public Information Officer Pete Mann.

The Canadian-born rock star told CHP he drives the car across North America promoting green, sustainable living and encouraging less dependency on oil. He was on his way to a green festival in Canada, he told officers.

The Toronto native — whose full name is Neil Percival Young — is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer both as a solo artist (inducted in 1995) and as a member of Buffalo Springfield (inducted in 1997).

He is best-known for the songs “Heart of Gold,” Down by the River,” “Cowgirl in the Sand,” “Ohio” and “Rockin’ In The Free World,” among several other major hits.
