Neil Young Goes Back To Country Roots
Neil Young's new album is actually an old album that has Young returning to his country roots. "A Treasure" features Young playing with the International Harvesters back in 1984 and 1985. One of the reasons it has taken so long for the "new" album to be released is a battle between Young and his record company:
"I don't like boundaries," Young said in an interview at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville last week. "They don't really work. They do for some people. It all started when they started formatting radio and separating things into different little areas that they could talk about and then restricting who would play what. That was very counterproductive, when they took the decision-making from the individuals and gave it to the corporate heads. That was destructive to music. But we're coming back." - Courier Post Online.com
"A Treasure" features old favorites and five never before released songs.
