I’m back. At long last.
Alas, job potentialities forbid me from inhabiting the legal gray areas of MP3 posting, so you will only get streaming audio from me. It’ s a good thing you come here for the musical insights and not just for free files, right? And everyone clicks on the “Buy [artist’s name or relevant pun]” links, right?
Since I am likely a little rusty, I need a slow pitch. So I’m sharing what may very well be my favorite Neil Young song, the title track from 1974’s On the Beach. Its Wurlitzer-powered alternations between minor-7 and major-7 verses are the perfect mixture of alienation and sweet, i-don’t-give-a-shit redemption. And check out the angsty, lyrical guitar solos. Great.
I guess it was a rough time in his life and I’ll be goddamned if he didn’t make the most of it.

Glad to be back,
