Subject: Neil all over Canadian Top 50

Chart Magazine in Canada has made a habit of polling music fans, industry people and journalists every four years about their top ten Canadian albums and singles of all time. The top 50 albums chart was released today and I have included the comments about the five Neil albums that made the list. You can get all the comments on all the albums at their web site.

26. NEIL YOUNG Tonight's the Night (Reprise, 1975)
The album has a "darkness on the edge of town" feel to it. With Tired Eyes there's an intense world-weariness in Young's voice. You can sense how close to tears and to the brink he is. It's pretty obvious the album was recorded in a chemically-altered state. Just brings chills down the spine. {Jonathan Bunce, music writer, Eye magazine}

24. NEIL YOUNG Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (Reprise, 1969)
This was his breakout record. It's got that primal, Crazy Horse sound. I already knew of the hit songs Cinnamon Girl and Down By The River before I got the record. The album introduces the idea of guitar proficiency and economy, not just wanking off a guitar solo. It's minimal, with him taking the art of one note and excelling. {Kieran Grant, music writer, Toronto Sun}

16. NEIL YOUNG Rust Never Sleeps (Reprise, 1992)
One of Young's most powerful albums with Crazy Horse, Rust Never Sleeps yielded such favourites as Pocahontas and Powderfinger. With his unique voice in full swing and guitars blaring and booming, Rust Never Sleeps has more bite after 20 years than most fluff today. {Keith Carman, punk rocker, Chart writer}

12. NEIL YOUNG After The Gold Rush (Reprise, 1970)
After The Gold Rush consisted of folk-country love songs, which consolidated the audience Young has earned through his tours and recordings with CSNY; it's dark, yet hopeful tone matched the tenor of the times, making it the singer-songwriter's magnum opus. Little known 17-year-old Nils Lofgren's piano turned one of the record's few rockers, Southern Man (with it's Phil Ochs-inspired lyrics) into a more stately effort than anything on 1969's Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. Lofgren also gave the album's title track a classic tone, a mystical ballad which featured some of Young's most imaginative lyrics. {Tyson Parker, manager national media & artist relations, Virgin Music Canada}

2. NEIL YOUNG Harvest (Reprise, 1972)
As you can see, the kid from Winnipeg is all over this Top 50 chart. Harvest shows Neil at his height of commercial success. Not only did Harvest garner the number one spot on the Billboard Album Chart and produce two top 30 singles, Heart Of Gold and Old Man, it also contains one of his most affecting and endearing songs from his 35+ years of material, The Needle And The Damage Done (which comes in at #15 on Chart's Top 50 Songs), a song that recounts a close friend of Young's harrowing experience with drug use. {Edward Skira, Chart publisher}

Their #1 album was Joni Mitchell's Blue (Reprise, 1971).

In today's USA Today On-line, there is a main page link that's captioned "Speaking of sports -- Zillgitt gives thanks for the All-Star Game, Neil Young and good coffee." The column is about giving thanks for lots of different things. Mostly sports stuff, but also other recreational, entertainment and arts stuff.

Here's the small Neil reference:

[Thanks] for CDs, such as Neil Young's
new one, Silver and Gold.
Other musicians he's thankful for: Widespread Panic, John Prine, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison and bluegrass music in general.

Subject: Radio Silver & Gold

On Triple-A format radio, Silver & Gold finally dropped out of the top 10 after a few months up there. Moved down from #6 to #11 last week.

On Americana format radio, the album remains strong, staying at #4 for another week.

In less time than it takes to pop a cork, the good times at Lonz Winery turned bloody.

The crowd on the patio of the Middle Bass Island winery had settled in for an evening of fun. The band was playing Rockin' in the Free World and Robert Antolak of Detroit was fetching drinks. Then the floor gave way without warning...

Subject: Neil and Eels

The Eels, who played Bridge XII, have a new album out called Daisies of the Galaxy. In a CNNfyi.com article, Neil comes up. The lead singer, Mark Everett (who uses a handle of "(E)" here) is being interviewed...

If there's a common thread running through Daisies, it's the imprint of rock legend Neil Young, who hosted a barbecue at his home where (E) met R.E.M.'s Buck, who ended up contributing to Daisies.

The other connection is even more curious.

"My sister used to play Neil Young's After the Gold Rush over and over and over again. Interestingly enough, the piano that's actually used on After the Gold Rush is what I'm playing on Daisies of the Galaxy, " says (E). "I wish my sister were still alive so I could tell her that."

Subject: Mannfred finally does some Neil

A concert I attended Saturday Night here in Copenhagen, Denmark, featured the legendary Mannfred Mann's Earth Band. They did a wonderful greatest hits concert. MMEB has always mostly done cover versions of other artists (Springsteen, Dylan etc.), turning them more or less into their "own" songs. They've had good succes in doing that.

They opened with a Dylan cover and a song of their own, and then they annonced that they would now do a song that they never recorded before, so this was the only chance for anyone to hear it. And then the magic broke loose...

With the first lines "...Old man sitting by the side of the road..." they exploded into Don't Let It Bring You Down. It was an absolutely killer version, with great lead singing by a guy called Noel McCullem.

After that they continued with songs like: Martha's Madman, Angels At My Gate, Father Of Day - Father Of Night, Blinded By The Light, Demolition Man, Redemption Song, Davy's On The Road Again, and more. They closed with Quinn The Eskimo. The MANN really rocked!

They are touring over Europe, South Africa and more at the moment, so if you get the chance, go and see them. Of the more than 150 concerts I have attended, this was one of the top 5.

Take care - Thomas

On this week's "Triple-A" format radio chart, it's still hanging in there after a couple of months, sitting at #6 (down from #4 last week).

Subject: NeilYoung.com Without Rings

Once you find your way to Silver & Gold page on NeilYoung.com, the "In The Studio" link there takes you to an unlabeled set of buttons to load some un-named video. Took a look at the stream appropriate for my connection and it turned out to be a triple video of Without Rings. The style is similar (in the same studio, same cameras) to the one for Silver & Gold that's at the end of the Silver & Gold movie.

Neil walks in and sits in the studio (viewed with split-screen video) and begins warming up for Without Rings, but mixes in some riffs from Buffalo Springfield Again. He then procedes to play Without Rings THREE times all the way through. Then he splits.

This all happens less than 48 hours after the end of the HORDE tour, which explains the low pitch (due to his voice being "tired" from the tour) for that song...

I'm laughing my ass off yesterday at this article I was reading in the most recent issue of Rolling Stone. I'm a big fan of Ozzy Osbourne (yeah, I was a head banger in highschool, and I'm proud of it.) So I was happy to see a long article regarding his life at home with three tennagers and a wife in a mansion in Beverly Hills.

So Ozzy's wife Sharon comes home one night and says that she's volunteered Ozzy to do two benefit concerts for their son's special dyslexia school. Sharon tells Ozzy,

"We HAVE to give back, Ozzy. That's what life's all about."
To which Ozzy replies,
"I don't want to give back! I'm the FUCKING Prince of Darkness, not NEIL YOUNG!"

Subject: New Neil Biography

There's a new Neil bio called Neil Young: Kill Your Idols, by Alexis Petridis (published by Thunder's Mouth, 2000). It's a little 5x7 inch softcover book with a B&W picture of Neil circa 1974 on cover. The book is 138 pages plus 8 pages of B&W photos.

The first 51 pages are a biography, and the next 71 are track listings of his albums with short 1 or 2 sentence song naratives. Then comes a 14 page chapter "The Legacy".

Alexis Petridis is a young London journalist whose work has appeared in Q and Mojo. Other books in the series cover The Clash, Leonard Cohen, Elvis Costello, and Tom Waits.

The title is explained on the back of book...

Kill Your Idols is a series of opinionated biographies of artists whose careers have resisted easy classification and whose success is best measured off the charts, in their influence on our popular culture. The artists profiled are iconoclastic, unafraid of experimentation, and unrepentantly uncommercial. They hold nothing sacred and inspire the same skepticism of idol-making in their lsiteners.

Subject: Neil dominates Jonge Honden

In 1987 and in in 1996, the first two editions of the Jonge Honden Top 100 (in English: the Young Dogs Top 100) were produced in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. On May 20th of this year the third edition was compiled.

For this poll, 60 friends sent in their list of their favourite 100 albums. I had the pleasure of compiling "the ultimate top 100" from their lists. Every number 1 nomination received 100 points, every number 2 nomination received 99 points, etcetera.

The end result is a booklet with the top 100 artist-rankings and lots of other stuff. And of course a great party with lots of fine music -- from each Top 100 album one track was played.

It's pleasing to announce that Neil Young's Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere was at the top of the list! And Neil also lead in each of the three artist rankings: "most nominations", "most total points" and "most individual titles". This is a pretty good illustration of how many people love Neil's music.

Within the top 100 there were actually several Neil albums. Also present were After The Goldrush, Harvest, Rust Never Sleeps, On The Beach (my own favourite NY album), Buffalo Springfield's Retrospective and CSNY's Deja Vu.

Greetings from Doorwerth, the Netherlands...
