As I mentioned the other day, you can expect a good amount of Neil Young related posts leading up to the June 2nd release of the first installment of the bard’s long awaited/delayed Archives Series. This is a good thing. And to be honest it really doesn’t take much to come up with an “excuse” to post something from ole Shakey.
All told I probably have several discs worth of Neil covers that I’ve rounded up over the years; most of them worth their salt too as I’ve weeded out the less inspired along the way. Below are a couple of soul infused nuggets that are always a welcome addition when they pop up on shuffle. Heads up: the Dutch Rhythm version was culled from an exceptional Soul Sides curated compilation (O Dub – Deep Covers).
