Editors’ Notes

Refinding his artistic footing with 1989's Freedom, Neil Young reconvened with his legendary backing group Crazy Horse to make a loud, sweaty album for the new decade. Hardly could Young have expected the explosion of the grunge era that was to take off within the next two years, but with Ragged Glory he put himself in the perfect position to be anointed its godfather. Ragged Glory includes two extensive guitar workouts - "Love to Burn" and "Love and Only Love" jam over the ten minute mark - and several other compact yet no less incendiary tunes ("F*!#in' Up," "Mansion On the Hill") that showcase the aging rocker as every bit as impassioned as his younger self. Crazy Horse's elementary backing hasn't changed a bit, always a lumbering group of support players who fit Young's slovenly rhythm like an old pair of jeans, worn in all the right places. "Country Home" and "White Line" are new recordings of old, unreleased collaborations between the two partiesvand the Premiers' '60s garage rock standard 'Farmer John" is exhumed and updated as well. Traces of nostalgia can be glimpsed in many of the songs' sentiments and "Days That Used to Be" "borrows" the melody from Dylan's "My Back Pages" to strong effect.

After Neil Young left the California folk-rock band Buffalo Springfield in 1968, he slowly established himself as one of the most influential and idiosyncratic singer/songwriters of his generation. Young's body of work ranks second only to Bob Dylan in terms of depth, and he was able to sustain his critical reputation, as well as record sales, for a longer period of time than Dylan, partially because of his willfully perverse work ethic. From the beginning of his solo career in the late '60s through...
