ALBUMS

  • NEIL YOUNG: COMES A TIME: 1978: 4 1/2  STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: This was my first Neil Young ‘new’ album- I had previously bought Decade. Neil rarely repeats himself- this was a folk rock album- within a year he would release Rust Never Sleeps. Favorites on this- Comes A Time, Lotta Love, Human Highway, Field Of Opportunity and a cover of Four Strong Winds.

  • LYNYRD SKYNYRD: STREET SURVIVORS: 1977: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Their 5th and last album- released just days before the fatal plane crash. The single “What’s Your Name” would peak at #13. That Smell- I always thought should be the soundtrack at every carnival. Ronnie Van Zant was 29 when he died- no reason to believe Skynyrd wouldn’t have continued to get better and better. Underrated songwriter.

also listened to the third hour of this weeks Neon Beat on Radio George.

  1. “That Smell- I always thought should be the soundtrack at every carnival” It fits.
    I believe if they would have continued they would have been in the Aerosmith range of popularity or close at the time.

    • It would have been interesting to see what direction they would have gone- i really don’t count the post- Ronnie Lynyrd Skynyrd- Ronnie was Skynyrd in my book. I recall the day after the crash at school finding out- by some kid coming in and talking about the crash and saying ‘I saw him last year.”– along with Pink Floyd?

    • lol… yes I have heard that also. No you cannot count after 77…it’s a cover band after that. Ronnie could have had a career in country music also. He had an album supposedly planned with Merle H.

    • I never heard that- that would have been interesting- an album with Merle…. maybe they would have done an album with Neil–i think he wrote Powderfinger with them in mind.

    • I’ve read they had the Powderfinger demo… I do think a collaboration with Neil would have been possible.
      I have heard an old bootleg of Neil doing Sweet Home Alabama live…which struck me as funny and awesome…right after they crashed.

  2. Haven’t heard “Comes a Time”. I have 4 of his “new” albums: Ragged Glory, Harvest Moon, Mirror Ball (with PJ), and Psychedelic Pill. Unfortunately I’ve only played the first two and may not have played the other two. Of the first two, Harvest Moon has been played a lot. I like Uncle Neil. He’s always marched to the beat of a different drummer.
