    cool. i think i have everything, but if there are any '70s live shows out there i haven't heard, i'll have to check 'em out.

    that's my favorite period, the mid '70s, when he "found himself in the middle of the road [with harvest], so he headed for the ditch" with ...

    Not sure what will be posted as far as new stuff as opposed to his library. There's that live show that is posted. Hopefully there will be thing like that.

    I went there. There are a lot of songs that aren't available when you click on them.

    I know, and music is SO subjective. I do tend to think most musicians and especially those who write and arrange music, tend to do their best when young, energetic and hungry. I loved Neil Young's stuff back in the late 1960's and early 70's, but didn't hear the genius in his later music.

    I don't know what zuma is. I do know what Zima is but haven't ever tried it.

    explains a lot.

    in related news ... neil young released ragged glory with crazy horse when he was 45 years old. he was still "young," but maybe not as "hungry." it rocks as hard as anything he's ever done. (not saying it's as good as zuma, though.)

    algebraically, young ≠ most.

    Well, my lazy side wanted you to explain zuma. Yes, even at 45 Neil was still Young. After the mid 70's, I would hear new songs from him and just not be as impressed as his older, super successful entries. I have not closely followed him since then, but will check out Ragged Glory. Thanks.

    "Long May You Run" and "Comes a Time" are both good songs, and reminiscent of his earlier days.

    yeah, most people prefer the poppier, more heavily produced stuff to the more raw, emotional stuff.

    'comes a time' is a really great album, a return to country rock (like 'harvest'), and a complete 180 from his "ditch" period of the mid '70s.

    Both HARVEST and AFTER THE GOLD RUSH are spectacular, and EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS IS NOWHERE has those 2 killer songs, Down By the River and Cowgirl in the Sand.

    need to listen to those again. he lost me through most of the '80s. but there's always a couple gems on those. like the track, 'mideast vacation,' from the 1987 album, life. such a quirky, catchy, heavy tune.

    choosing among the post-'79 catalogue, 1990's 'ragged glory' reminds me the most of the '70s garage rock i love. from there, i favor his quieter, folkier, countrified stuff like harvest moon ('92), silver & gold (2000), and prairie wind ('05).

    i finally logged in with my google account and took a look. it's pretty cool. he has a timeline of all his studio stuff -- even with buffalo springfield and csn&y -- and most of it is there to listen to or buy. (or play it and record it yourself? )

    i listened to one old album, hitchhiker, recorded in '76, but not released until this year. sounded good.

    there's not much live stuff listed, unfortunately. but the 5-volume collection known as 'the archives' is available. i haven't listened to it yet, but it's supposed to be filled with demos, alt-mixes and rare tracks.

    there's a cool multi-disk live collection called "a perfect echo" i found for free online years ago. it's really good. i used to use soulseek to download music back in the day.
