Why Neil Young would want to develop device to play music with the highest quality when he produces this kind of very low-fi material? If you asked me I would prefer musicians and producers play and produce music without worrying to much about achieving the best audio quality. The songs I've heard from Neil Young's new album are beautiful and I don't think they need to be overproduced.

The Arsenal were without Ramsey, Wilshere, and Walcott for long stretches. Giroud is just fine.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 10:46am Mark S:

copied and pasted from Wikipedia:

Near the beginning and at the end of the song, a field recording of fans in Liverpool's Kop singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" is superimposed over the music. This Rodgers and Hammerstein song became the anthem of Liverpool F.C. after Gerry & the Pacemakers had a number-one hit with their recording.

The choice is Benzema or Giroud. I wouldn't say Giroud is out of favor just because Benzema started the first game.

Ken?! I can't believe you forsook the fans. I thought one of these weeks you were gonna do a 10th anniversary special of that great summery show you did May 30th, 2004 when you did the Meat Puppets "Up On The Sun" into Love's "!Que Vida!" into The Lovin Spoonfuls' "You didn't Have To Be So Nice" Into Cleaners From Venus's "A Mercury Girl."

You've played this Jokerfan "better version of Blood on the Tracks" before, and this dude could not be more wrong. The versions on the Bootleg Series suck, they are NOT the original acetate versions, which I presume is what he thinks they are. Also, the alternate Shelter with the extra verse doesn't hold a candle to the released version, and Up to Me is too similar to other songs. Yes, if one wants to compile a "complete" version they're of value, but his supposedly better version of the album is wretched. If there was a discussion of this I missed it since I listen on archive. Have a great day.
