Neil Young
Neil Young will begin a North American tour on October 18 in Boise, Idaho, two days after the release of his new extraordinary album Chrome Dreams II on Reprise Records. Concerts continue until December 13 in New York, including two nights at the historic Massey Hall in Toronto, Canada, the site of early legendary shows by the acclaimed singer-songwriter.

Chrome Dreams II is a stunning collection of eight new and two classic Young songs. Recorded last summer in Northern California, musicians include Ben Keith (pedal steel guitar, dobro and other instruments), Ralph Molina (drums) and Rick Rosas (bass), who will all be performing in concert with Young.

Pegi Young is the opening artist on the tour. She released her debut album last summer on Vapor/Warner Bros. Records, followed by a series of sold out shows in Northern California and New York.

On October 27 and 28 Young will host the 21st annual Bridge School Concerts in Mountain View, California, which also features appearances by Metallica, John Mayer, Tom Waits with the Kronos Quartet, the trio of Eddie Vedder, Flea and Jack Irons, and others.

I have been listening to this album for the past couple days now. Although I love all things Neil, including his past few albums, this is his best work in years.

This album should play well to fans because it showcases all of Neil's range. From the gorgeous acoustics of the opener 'Beautiful Bluebird' to the grunged out sonics of 'Ordinary People' and 'No Hidden Path'. It's classic and fresh. It's Neil!

Grab it!
