I was planning on this massive ditch trilogy/quadrology whatever you call it post. In preparation I thought lets listen to the reason for the ditch first.
So I sat myself down and listened to Harvest, then I listened again and remembered that fine crisp day in the late 70’s when I struggled home from Woolworths with my new recently purchased copy of Harvest. This was my go to album for years when unhappy, in love, happy drunk/stoned or just tired. I would play it when I woke up and before I went to sleep. I lived this album in all it’s schmaltzy at times over the top glory. I burned through countless copies, at one time I had it on CD, cassette and the record so I could play it on the car, wondering around and at home. It was stolen by more girlfriends than I can imagine, I must have single handedly kept Neil Young in cocaine the number of copies I bought.
Anyway today I celebrate the album that was the precursor to the ditch, the towering pinnacle of country rock or whatever it’s called the album that gave us the phrase More Barn!!!
So I am staying out of the ditch for now and listening to Harvest.
Neil has finally confirmed the more barn story;
