News and Notes
In the 1980s, Neil Young was actually sued by his record company (Geffen) for "not sounding enough like himself." Taking on a new persona and a new genre with every album, he spent the decade exploring the diverging avenues of popular music, from techno to country to pop to rockabilly to blues. Yet underneath the disguises, Young was still writing great songs, as evidenced in this "best of" collection. In other words, he was being himself.
