Why Chrome Dreams II and No Chrome Dreams?The first Chrome Dreams album was a bootleg and never officially released.
Why include two soundtrack albums, "Dead Man (1995) and "Greendale (2003), but exclude the other two soundtrack albums, "Journey Through the Past" and "Where the Buffalo Roam"?"Dead Man" and "Greendale" are original albums, composed, recorded, and played by Neil Young. "Journey Through the Past" falls more into the greatest hits/compliation album category. "Where the Buffalo Roams" was scored by Neil Young, but the majority of the soundtrack features music by other artists.Why no live albums?
What? Fourty-nine album reviews not enough for you? Calm down.
Wait a minute, isn't "Rust Never Sleeps" a live album?Not exactly, it's kind of an intermediate. Although the foundation tracks were recorded live, many of the tracks were later overdubbed in the studio. Additionally, there is another Neil Young album from the same time period called "Live Rust" which is a true live album featuring much of the same material.Why should anyone care about your opinions on records that were in, some cases, released over 40 years ago? Hasn't enough been written about Neil Young?
Good point. No one should care. I like Neil Young and I'm just having fun.
If you have any other questions just ask and I'll add the responses here. Alright, without any further ado, here we go...
