NeilTest™ Vol. 2 – The 1970s

The second volume of the NeilTest™ takes on the Canadian artist’s masterful work from the 1970s – a decade that produced a significant swath of Mr. Young’s finest songs. You will need a firm familiarity with his catalog from 1970′s After The Gold Rush running through 1979′s Rust Never Sleeps. That’s one hell of a sandwich with meat like Harvest, Tonight’s The Night and Comes A Time inside.

Now roll your sleeves up and get to work. Good luck – or you may be so damn good you don’t need it.
