Video: Deer Tick “Main Street” (Neil Young Cover)
The 40th anniversary of Neil Young’s Harvest will occur on February 14. This was a subtle recording that quickly became the best selling album of 1972. Although this album will be “over the hill” this year, it is safe to say that it will not soon be forgotten. This release is significant because it serves as a baby boomer recommendation that most of us have accepted. This is the album your dad not only introduced to you when you were younger, but also still plays routinely. If you own this album then you play it regularly. I am not particularly insane about Neil Young, but I always find room for Harvest. This has always been a valuable suggestion that has earned a seat in my rotation.
What better way to pay homage to this milestone than a cover? Watch John McCauley and Rob Crowell of Deer Tick cover Harvest opener “Main Street” on Live & Reel’s January session:
