Rick James and Neil Young: "It's My Time" on YouTube
RICK JAMES - NEIL YOUNG - THE MYNAH BIRDS - "IT'S MY TIME" - Motown, 1966
This is the elusive single that Neil Young & Rick James wrote together while bandmates in The Mynah Birds back in 1966. Motown never released it because Rick was arrested for AWOL, they actually pulled it the day it was scheduled to air, then all these years later it finally sees the light of day! This would've been a definite hit had they released it back then. The other songs on the album sound similar and some are just instrumental. This does not sound like the Rick James we all know, he was into imitating The Rolling Stones Back Then, and he does a good job! So I refer to him as Rick Jagger! Neil's style of course has changed as well, but wow, they sure did come a long way... The Mynah Birds; 'It's My Time'"
