Neil Young Live, from 1968

I know Neil Young is an acquired taste that many haven't gotten around to acquiring. His distinctive voice, challenging lyrics and all-around quirkiness are kind of like mother of pearl - the same material that makes the ugly shell somehow becomes the thing of beauty.

Someday I will do an homage to him that will help the indifferent understand why, exactly, Neil Young deserves a prominent spot among the truly greats. But today, I'll toss the pearls before swine, and direct music lovers to listen for free to an entire live album by Neil Young from 1968, when he was 22 years old and shocked to sell out a concert hall.
