What a riff!!
Capturing the mood of the moment. The mid-sixties was a time of polarisation and dissent.
I fancied a bit of loud loud loud Neil Young!!
I also fancied a cinnamon girl!! SPICY!!!
To think that we still put these murderers, racists and cruel, violent scum on plinths and venerate them.
This is spicy! I love that riff!
One of the greats
A great Neil Young album.
I dreamed I saw the world in ruins,
Brought down to its knees,
Creatures dying, people crying;
A new reality.
I dreamed I saw the smoke clouds rising
From what remained of the trees,
Politicians lying, exploiters buying;
It was a dream, only a dream
Of what will come to be.
So terrifying, mind defying;
It seemed we were at the crossroads
With clear choices to be made;
To carry on, or admit we’re wrong:
More than mere money.
Opher – 19.4.2020
Homage to Neil Young.
It’s a nightmare about the future if we allow the capitalists to continue their mad pursuit of profit.
The trees all gone. The animals killed. The air and water full of chemicals.
The poor exploited and impoverished and a tiny elite still living like lords – safe in their little air-purified bubbles.
It’s a dream that’s coming true. Nature is worth much more than money.
Just love this album.
One of the very best.. Young, Dylan, Harper, Van Vliet, Cohen, Ochs.
