Neil Young and Crazy Horse – Americana

June 5, 2012

Disclosure: Neil Young and Crazy Horse are my favorite flavor of Neil.

Who other than the godfather of grunge can take tired children’s and folk songs and rev them up with a combination of “Old Black” and Crazy Horse and make them new and fresh?  Over my 30 plus years of being a  Neil Young fan he has continued to find new and twisted ways to delight me.  Well he has done it again with Americana.

All great Neil Young ideas sound stupid in concept, but are brilliant in execution.    When I heard Neil had rounded up the Horse to cover songs like “Oh Susannah,” “Clementine,” “She’ll Be Comin ‘Round The Mountain,” etc., I figured this is so stupid that it will great and I can’t wait.  Today the wait is over and Neil has delivered again.
