    That’s pretty cool. Not a huge Neil Young fan but it’s neat there’s an actual album from 1975 that he never released (as opposed to out-takes and various detritus that artists usually release). Nice to make it available.

    And speaking of what’s old is new, I got the new Who album, “Who” and it’s pretty dang good. Pete says he wrote it for Rogers voice as it is now, and it shows. Daltrey sounds pretty good. It’s their first #1 album in the UK in nearly 50 years (since “Who’s Next”, I believe).

    I need to pick up a copy of Shakey at some point, because this is a period of his I’ve had a hard time keeping straight. For years, I had a boot of the unreleased “Chrome Dreams” (which contained songs from this mid-’70s period and which, in typically confounding Neil Young style, he released a legitimate sequel to in 2007). Much of what appears on Chrome Dreams showed up on Hitchhiker, which he gave a proper release a few years ago. Meanwhile, Zuma came out in 1975 and featured some songs from this period. And now this. Obviously, he was mining a lot of pain pretty productively and struggling with how to package all the output.
