I have never been all that great at ranking my preferences for media. While others say “…is my favorite movie” or “the best book I have ever read is…,” I find that my opinions fluctuate too much to ever be final. Over the past few years, however, Neil Young has begun to settle into my number 2 slot for my favorite musicians–behind the Beatles of course.
Out on the Weekend is first track from Harvest, a wonderful record. I am not saying anything earth-shattering here, more copies of Harvest sold in ’72 than any other record.
I love the way Out on the Weekend opens. The harmonica slowly pulls you into the song (and the album). This is just a classic Neil Young gem. Hope you like it too.
