This is shaping up to be an incredible year for Neil Young fans. After eight long years, Young reunited with Crazy Horse for the folk standards album Amerciana, and another album of originals is slated for release later this year. Also, a lengthy Crazy Horse American tour kicks off in early August.

We figured this was a good opportunity to look back at Young’s lesser known classics. These songs were all released after his golden period of 1966-1978, and we also excluded material from his three late 1980s/early 1990s comeback albums (Freedom, Ragged Glory and Harvest Moon.) That leaves a ton of material.

Here are our 20 favorite songs from those remaining albums. (You can hear most of them in the Spotify playlist directly below, and the rest via YouTube.) We expect there will be plenty of differences of opinion here, so free share your picks in the comments section.
