Throwback Thread: Neil Young

In my list of Best Songs for Fall Drives, you'll find plenty of Neil Young, including almost everything he recorded between 1965 and 1974. This track stands on the top, one of many Young songs that laid the foundation for alt-rock and paved the way for its really good expansions (Wilco, Fleet Foxes) still heard today.

"Cripple Creek Ferry" appeared at the tail end of After the Gold Rush, never got the attention of hits like "Heart of Gold" and indicates that the hardest-working man in folk never threw on a throw-away track.
