Neil Young - RAGGED GLORY

Better late than never.  ;)
I've always loved this album since I first heard it (early '91 or so) from a friend, later I bought it myself.
Saw Young & Crazy Horse live in 2014 (they played quite a few from this album)!

I was blown away by Neil´s concert at Barcelona with Promise Of The Real last June and wanted to get this one too...

Yes, it's been fun to listen to! I've not been the biggest blues fan, but as Keith says in the booklet, you need to know about blues to understand rock'n'roll.
Also, the way the album's been recorded (in just three days, whole band playing it "live") shines through when you listen to it, really sounds like a band rocking it out together.

Bash & Pop is really good (listening to the download - which is free on amazon.de if you buy the album - until the physical copy arrives)!

Next up for me:

Long-running UK band The Godfathers are back with new album A Big Bad Beautiful Noise on February 10 on the band’s own Godfathers Recordings2 label and Metropolis Records. The group’s snarling sound remains intact 30 years on from their classic “Birth School Work Death.” We’ve got the premiere of the album’s closing track, “You And Me Against The World,” a swirling widescreen epic straight out of the Bond Theme cannon with more than a dash of glam.

Alejandro Escovedo - Burn Something Beautiful

Seen a gig by this man and it was a great rock'n'roll show, so I bought his new album (co-written and co-produced with Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey):

http://www.rollingstone.com/country/features/hear-alejandro-escovedos-cathartic-new-album-w446057
Quote
"Some people have told me that we sound younger than actual young people making rock & roll," Escovedo says – with the subtle wink being that rock & roll itself has become somewhat of a decaying pursuit, at least in its purest form. Burn Something Beautiful evokes that often-dissonant spirit of Lou Reed ("Johnny Volume") melded with Escovedo's knack for a fiery, infectious punk refrain ("Horizontal"): timeless rather than trendy. "We played a gig at a hotel in Dallas recently, and someone said we sounded 'classic rock,'" he laughs. "Ten years ago I would have taken that as an insult. Not today. When my first solo albums came out they were never in the rock section. They were either in Mexican, Salsa, world beat [sections]. It took a long time for people to understand what I was doing."

Though it doesn't dictate the entirety of his sound, Escovedo's Mexican heritage is still a vital part of his identity, and he dedicated Burn Something Beautiful to his parents, and to "immigrants who have made this country so great." It's choice language, of course, directly echoing the "Make America Great Again" campaign of Donald Trump, who's boasted of a deportation task force and building a big ol' wall.

Alejandro Escovedo - Burn Something Beautiful

Still wondering how I managed to not even know his name for so many years... (but very glad I found him now and even spoke to him shortly)

Alejandro Escovedo was there – not as a bystander, but as a player.
His first band, the Nuns, opened for the Sex Pistols the night they imploded on stage. He became part of the New York punk scene in the late ’70s, living in the Chelsea Hotel, a peer of Sid Vicious, Nancy Spungen, Joey Ramone and others. He moved to Austin, Texas, in the ’80s, helped kickstart cow-punk, was encouraged to write songs by Townes Van Zandt and Joe Ely, and earned pearls of wisdom from former Faces Ronnie Lane and Ian McLagan. Oh, and his brothers were in Santana and his niece is Sheila E.
