I have to admit that it took me a while to really get Neil Young.

I'd been familiar with the moody bloke out of Buffalo Springfield, the and Young tacked onto the end of Crosby Stills & Nash, and had probably heard Everybody Knows This is Nowhere along the way towards Harvest time, lived two doors down from an Engineering student who thought the chorus of Don't Let it Bring You Down (it's only castles burning/find someone who's turning/and you will come around) was so true but it wasn't until I started reading about Tonight's the Night that I started out seriously listening.

The preference, still, after close to forty years, is still the post-Harvest era when he headed for the ditch because it was a more interesting place than the middle of the road, but among his extensive and varied discography there's not much I'd actively go out of my way to avoid, if you catch my drift.

Not while there's a shuffle button handy on the keyboard or iPod…

But you can put Hughesy in the automatic purchaser because everything he does will have something of interest…

What follows here isn’t quite the complete discography, but goes close enough to what I’ve got in the CD shelves to act as another index to keep track of things discussed in various parts of the site as well as items reviewed hereabouts.
