Scott Parks, patron and friend of the pod, gets to pick today’s topic.

Neil Young is quite an accomplished singer-songwriter, but many view his ’80s records as bizarre and not the Harvest sound that listeners were so accustom to. Scott has a different perspective on the matter, arguing that without these ’80s releases by Young, his evolution as an artist would have been limited or totally non-existent.
