Weekend Rock Question: What’s the Best Neil Young Deep Cut?
Neil Young played a surprise show at Charley’s Restaurant and Saloon in Maui with his new backing band Promise of the Real earlier this week. The set focused on their upcoming album The Monsanto Years, but it also featured lesser-known Young tunes like “Country Home,” “Goin’ Back,” “Walk On” and “Love and Only Love.” They’re hitting the road for a North American amphitheater tour in July.
Now we have a question for you: What is your favorite Neil Young deep cut? Basically, we’re going to count anything not in rotation on Classic Rock radio. That eliminates big hits like “Heart of Gold” and “Rockin’ in the Free World” along with tunes like “The Loner,” “Like a Hurricane” and “Tonight’s the Night.” That still leaves about 95 percent of his catalog. Feel free to vote for a Buffalo Springfield tune like “Flying on the Ground Is Wrong,” a 1970s gem like “Ambulance Blues” and “Sedan Delivery” or something more recent like “Goin’ Home” or “Be the Rain.” Pick whatever Neil Young deep cut you want, but please only vote once and only for a single selection.
