"Earth" 3LP is 21.99EU on Amazon Germany, compared to $44.98 and 35.99UKP on the other Amazon sites. After tax deduction I got it preordered for $24.

I listened today during my commute and cracked up when Neil told all of Marc's listeners to go over to Tidal and just record the new album from there.

Neil Young is one of my favorite artists on a par with Jack.
Among all of his songs I would like to highlight Old Man. Great text and the banjo sound:



This song has an interesting story (taken from Wiki):

"The song was written for the caretaker of the Northern California Broken Arrow Ranch, which Young purchased for $350,000 in 1970. The song compares a young man's life to an old man's and shows that the young man has, to some extent, the same needs as the old one. James Taylor played six-string banjo (tuned like a guitar) and sang on the song, and Linda Ronstadt also contributed vocals.

In the film Heart of Gold, Young introduces the song as follows:

"About that time when I wrote ("Heart of Gold"), and I was touring, I had also—just, you know, being a rich hippie for the first time—I had purchased a ranch, and I still live there today. And there was a couple living on it that were the caretakers, an old gentleman named Louis Avila and his wife Clara. And there was this old blue Jeep there, and Louis took me for a ride in this blue Jeep. He gets me up there on the top side of the place, and there's this lake up there that fed all the pastures, and he says, "Well, tell me, how does a young man like yourself have enough money to buy a place like this?" And I said, "Well, just lucky, Louis, just real lucky." And he said, "Well, that's the darnedest thing I ever heard." And I wrote this song for him.""

He tells the story on his 1971 Live at Massey Hall album.

Side note: His dad used to think it was written about him.
