..discretion? ..this band is Not what you think they are. How's that for discreet? But really here's the way I like to put it -..the rock and roll soul of their music came from a producer and a million dollar studio.. or.. the 60's and 70's were a time that called for guts and honesty, not the Bangladeshi version of Love Me Do, and we've paid for the drug induced hyponosis they created ever since..(?) or Best of all -.. me thinks the money was a rollin' so hard for some, and the egos and the chicks were a rollin so hard for others.. and the poppers and the speed were a rollin' so hard for all the rest, that it's not hard to see why that train kept a rollin', so hard, all-night-long. ... into the next decade even.
the backing vocal of Mary Clayton on the Stones Gimme Shelter has more guts alone and is tougher and more honest than anything done by the Beatles. If rock isn't tough and honest what is it? I'll tell you, it's Pop, then it fades in relevance and becomes adult contemporary. ..not Rock and Roll and definitely not the timeless voice of a generation. Or wait ..maybe so.. Yes, That's It !! The Beatles! A timeless voice of their generation.. yup it fits.
much passion in your discourse, me thinks its near and dear to you. Ask yourself why is it you care so much? I am guessing Bob Dylan never went corporate, never ripped off audiences, was never a fraud? Please...i guess we all have our own truth.

We got to go in the back and meet them both after they played.
It was the best "concert" I've ever been to.
That's a trip, I saw Chris Hillman with SHF (Souther, Hillman, Furay) at Mt.

I believe part of that Manassas rhythm/percussion section (Lala, Samuels, Harris) played with them.

Include Richie Furay? How could you not? Between POCO and SHF (Souther, J.D., Hillman, Chris, and Furay) there was a lot of great work. I loved POCO but the two albums SHF put out (self-titled and Trouble in Paradise) were both excellent pieces of work. Actually, I believe most of the rhythm section of SHF was very similar to Manassas (Paul Harris, Joe Lala, Fuzzy and the like)

Yes, this remains a beautiful song. But no matter how much I used to enjoy his songs, I still now find him hard to listen to, even if he has supposedly explained away his support for the Fatwa against Salman Rushdie. I'd like to hear all you Yussaf Islam defenders be as quick to rush to the defense of, say, a Ted Nugent if he were to say "John Lennon deserved to die for what he said about Jesus" (not that he actually would, but that's the closest example I can come up with). There's a big difference between espousing stupid political views, and actually advocating someone's death. A BIG difference. And no matter what he now says, I can't believe someone that intelligent could have been so naive.
'someone that intelligent'...? do not confuse musicianship with intelligence. I do agree it's a beautiful song. I won't defend or condone a Fatwa, and, at the least, his comments were dangerous, but I will say this-many people are misled (brainwashed) in their search for meaning in life, i.e. spirituality.

His skill as a songwriter is obvious ("Should I hate a people for the shade of their skin, Or the shape of their eyes or the shape I'm in" - can one but admire the poetry). But his ignorance of economics is woeful - even, when propounded by one so skilled, damaging.
a) I don't think Mr. McMurtry was trying to give a primer on economics
b) Yes, I have read Thomas Sowell, and, while educated and entitled to his views on basic economics, an educated man like yourself should know that his views are, to say the least, partisan political pontification!

I'm a big Neil fan and of coarse like this song. But...I am curious if anyone has comments about the current Greendale tour. Greendale was fine but I was really disappointed with the overall playlist. If you are going to charge premium prices for tickets ($78 bucks a piece), would it kill ya to play a few more favs and less endless "weld" jams. Moderation is not a bad thing. I have enjoyed his career and embrace his experimentations. But how about a little "give us what we came to see"!
Agreed, i grew up on "early" NY and much prefer this album and Harvest, Everybody Knows.... when he went to 'rust' etc. there was a period that some like to call 'progressive' but really was an endless uninspired jam. While I still love "Tonight's the Night", appreciated Zuma, and some other bits and pieces, Neil's body of work has yielded some genius, some clunkers. But as with many artists, his early work is his best...but in concert, yes, he needs to give us what we paid to hear, not his latest experiment!
