Neil Young: Decade

Andy Childs, ZigZag, December 1977

ONE OF the most immediately likeable things about this album besides the very impressive packaging, is that it doesn't purport to be a Best Of or a Greatest Hits compilation, or any other such dispensable and facile marketing exercise; it is merely a collection of songs chosen by the artiste himself which spans his impressive 10 year recording career, and proves conclusively that the man is one of THE great songwriters of our time. Nothing less.
