by Neil Young
Released: May 2011
Neil's music, going all the way back to the iconic Harvest, had always contained a pungent whiff of country music. But in the mid-1980s he made the conscious effort to morph into a Nashville crooner. In addition to dropping Old Ways, an album featuring both Waylon and Willie, he assembled the International Harvesters, a backing band of Southern session legends, including pianist Spooner Oldham, and toured the nation. A Treasure collects some of the best recordings from these jaunts, and it is a must-hear for any serious fan of Neil Young or the intersection of country and rock 'n' roll.
