I love Opera Star and Shots. The synths on the former and the wordless singing but are slyly terrific.

"T-Bone" forever and always.

I love "Opera Star" too. I enjoy the absurdity of guys like Neil Young and Lou Reed doing that "I'm just a rock and roll guy, I ain't no inter-lectual" stuff (see Lou's "Rock and Roll Heart").

xp i honestly thought that was some sexy touring musician he had during that tour period!

really want to go “t-bone” after the great version on the new rust bucket but it’s “shots”

I listened to this again just now while washing dishes. It's like they decided to make a record to transcend their frustrations, and then forgot about the transcending part. In a way, the whole thing works better than any of the songs.
It's the most conventional, but I'll vote "southern pacific" (though I prefer the version on A Treasure).

Might be my favorite Neil album of the 80s, loads of fun. Got mashed potato!

Been a long time...I think I used to like "Opera Star" the best. One Neil Young album where I think more in terms of overall mood than individual songs.

"T-Bone" - Neil Young's "Paprika Plains"?

Aw man, I missed this. I would have voted for "Surfer Joe and Moe the Sleaze." "Southern Pacific" and "Shots" are the only other tracks that I like.
