Neil Young
« on: June 23, 2011, 11:02:41 PM »

Just wondering if  John and Neil were ever mates ?
did they ever meet ?
Neil  was kind of  up there with John ... a  brilliant songwriter
(bit political sometimes too !)


I was  just listening to the song..
I dreamed I saw the silver space ships....
Neil Young - After The Gold Rush


one of the classics of the 1970s without doubt...
but listening to the record it all seems  somehow amature.
Neil's voice is just passable I suppose,
there's a piano in there... then the French horn ? comes in....

It all seems very basic.

I seem to remember reading an article that Neil
was recording in a barn in the 70s ... with bales of hay piled up for soundproofing...
maybe he was in the barn for that very basic recording.

The song is up there with John Lennon's finest,
   I was thinking.... ... if John had wrote it...
just imagine the mega production that George Martin and EMI would have laid on........
orchestras... heavenly choirs.... string sections....
they would have pulled out all the stops for such a wonderful song.
