Happy Valentine's Day to All of Our Hearts of Gold Out There!
Happy Valentine's Day!
It's been roughly 45 years now since "Heart of Gold" entered our lives, and we'd like to wish that every day could be Valentine's Day.
And no Neil Young song seems to say Happy Valentine's Day more than "Harvest Moon" it would seem by gauging the song's popularity as a "First Dance" song.
So there comes a time for a delightfully heart-warming little love story or ...Understanding Neil Young's Music.
Often, we've found ourselves trying to explain Neil Young's music to others with varying degrees of success. In the end, we find that his music isn't really something that can be explained.
While we've expended quite a few words on this blog making an attempt, it really is the stories of others which transcend the gap much better.

So Happy Valentine's Day to all of the hearts of gold out there.
Here's a very rare performance of Neil Young's "Love in Mind" at Carnegie Hall, NYC on 1/9/14. As everybody knows, "Love in Mind" -- from Time Fades Away -- is only available on vinyl*. (* As everybody knows, "Love in Mind" also is on the "Live at Massey Hall" CD (same tour as the TFA version, different date)
And Happy Valentine's Day to my Heart of Gold, Thrashette. I love you!
