Neil Young: On The Beach [1974]

Not very obscure, but I was feeling this on the subway yesterday so here 'tis. Each verse is over one minute long (I timed it).

Featuring Graham Nash on Wurlitzer electric piano.

Get it on CD or LP.

Y'know what's REALLY special? Grab Neil's 1982 foray into new wave lp "Trans" if you haven't already done so. Or, just ask your fellow Chimneys--they'll tell you.

That record will live in infamy. There was a 'listening' party for that particular record many moons ago, and it didn't take long to realize why Neil almost got sued over the recording. A record label's worst nightmare.

I'm with Jude here. Despite the unimitigated disaster that was that particular 'listening party,' I stand by "Trans" wholeheartedly. Sample and Hold is genius, as is Transformer Man. I feel as though the whole album has been woefully underappreciated.

"Report? What report?"

Sheridan -- I saw some kind of extended mix of one of the songs from Trans on a 12" single the other day. If it is still there, I will buy it, and you will hear it on this website posthaste.

Speaking of Chimneys and Trans, JAZ Chimney is ruling "Transformer Man" today. Weird!
