Take the NeilTest™ Vol. 3 – Deep Cuts From The ’70s

by Peter Wendel
We value your input so please make comments at the end of this post.

This one goes deep inside Neil Young’s prodigious 1970′s song book – from his dark and somber 1970 album, After The Gold Rush, straight through to his partially live masterpiece from 1979, Rust Never Sleeps, which features a pristine acoustic side A and a raunchy electric side B. You guys know the deal.

Neil generated nine studio albums during the ’70s – including one credited to The Stills-Young Band – a total of nearly 90 tracks. There are plenty of deep cuts to choose from. Buckle up, folks! Here we go.


NeilTest™ Vol. 3 – Deep Cuts From The ’70s

The third installment of the NeilTest™ drops you into the deep end of the artist’s extraordinary 1970′s catalog. This is neither for the faint of heart nor the average fan. You will be challenged to go far beyond the widely recognized classics – down into the recesses of Neil’s prodigious 1970′s song book.

Good luck, ladies and gents! And remember, Neil Young himself might have a little trouble getting a perfect score.
