They were mad at him for what he wrote about the south. See the lyrics of Neil's song Southern Man.

Talking about songwriters, I'm surprised no-one has mentionned Leonard Cohen.
His lyrics are just so...

Isn't Neil Young Canadian? Definitely give Nick Drake a try, from the UK side, if you've not come across him yet.

The OP mentioned being from a non-English speaking area. Nothing in my post infers I thought Neil Young was born in the US. We here do tend to hear a good deal from the UK, Canada, etc. .. but not other countries.

If you want to hear about songs originally written in French, you might want to listen to Bowie's covers of Jaques Brel's "Ma Mort" (My Death) and "Amsterdam".

I listened to Neil Young in Highschool. He was my morning coffee and a cig music before heading out.

The thing that makes neil so great is that he never bowed to the system, be it corporate or government.

His music is always evolving. He is an artist not afraid to take risk. You wont find that in music these days.

Technically he's Canadian. But he's lived in the U.S. since 1966, some three-quarters of his life, does 90% of his recording in the U.S., owns land in California and somewhere in the Midwest as well, so at this point keeping his Canadian passport is just a conversation piece.

I agree that the lyrics to Southern Man are a bit uhh... generalizing. Don't get me wrong I love the song, but he presents a pretty simplified, and vilifying view of Southern life.

Ohio not so much so. since it's a protest song and referring to a specific event.

Thanks. I am interesting in world music, in general.. but its hard to access it from the US. That is, I don't have the time to wade through the thousands of possibilities to find a few I might like.

Another great album from the "Harvest" era is "Comes a Time"... I just bought "Psychodelic" /Neil Young & Crazy Horse and on the first listen was a bit disappointed. It will likely grow on me in time as I haven't had the chance to give the double cd a good listen, if you like his drawn out long jams this new release is probably for you. I also like his "Hawks & Doves" and "Everybody's Rockin' albums.

In a similar time to early Neil Young is my two favorite Grateful Dead albums,
American Beauty and Workingman's Dead.

Arlo Guthrie is always a good show worth going out of the way to attend. Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits are both in leagues of their own.

fyi... if you like listening to a broad range of music
there's a broad spectrum of sounds here.

Those 2 Dead albums, in my opinion are their best studio albums, but everyone knows they were a live band, not a studio band.

Ovo did you ever get to see them when Jerry was alive?

"The Boss" isn't so bossy here - Neil Young definitely taking the lead!


How Neil Young makes a guitar sound so godawful bad, and yet so very right, is an eternal mystery.

Postby Juan_Bottom on Sun Feb 24, 2013 12:53 am

I was just having a discussion about Neil Young's Southern Man & Alabama and Lynard Skynard's response to those two songs with Sweet Home Alabama this night past.

Skynard's song is a very poor defense of Alabama's Jim Crow laws. Now, granted, the meaning behind Ronnie Van Zant's lyrics of "now we all did what we could do" is supposedly unknown. But that's exactly why his line is supporting Jim Crow. If he was against segregation, he could have said so in the song, and owned up to the fact that some Southerners supported segregation, but not all do. But by leaving the line neutral, he's silently consenting to the practice. And he's allowing everyone to listen to it and interpret their own meaning... making the song just as friendly to racists as to civil right's activists. Van Zant later said that he didn't like what governor Wallace said about blacks, but the lyrics remain far too ambiguous for anyone listening to them to say that Van Zant himself wasn't consenting to segregation. I don't know if this was lost in the Southern Revival of the 70's or what, but this seems like a very obvious conclusion for me.
Neil Young might be generalizing with Southern Man and Alabama, but his songs hit the mark because they accuse all Southerners/Alabamans of the time of at least silently consenting to segregation. Skynard's ambiguous statements about Jim Crow and saying "well we don't need Neil young anyhow" is no response to Neil's scathing accusations.

That's my Yankee take.
