living with war: help spread the word

The new Neil Young record is pretty fucking great. If you don’t believe me, listen for yourself. (I don’t know how long they’ll keep streaming it for free, so go check it out now, while you can.) Sure, there are a few weak parts, but when you consider that Young wrote, produced, mixed and released the whole thing in two weeks, it’s pretty fucking impressive. And, despite what his detractors may say, it’s incredibly pro-America. It’s painfully clear in every song that Young believes in, and loves, this country and its people. He just wants for them to have the competent, honest, inspirational leadership that they deserve. And that’s where the anger comes in.

If you listen and like what you hear, do me a favor, and start telling your friends. And, perhaps more importantly, start calling your local radio stations. The CD’s not going to be available for sale until May 9, but I’m thinking that some stations may receive copies in advance. (It’s going to be available for download on the 2nd.) It really is a brilliant piece of work and people need to hear it… So, please help get it played where ever you can.

    I called WRIF in Detroit. They said that they didn’t have it yet, but that they would note my interest.

    I’ve called three or four stations and gotten a similar response. I plan to try again in a few days.

    I also plan to contact Neil’s people and see what the plan is… if indeed there is one. Maybe they don’t need one though – I notice that the album is already number three on Amazon, and it doesn’t even get released for another week.

    They are going to release it to FM as soon as it’s pressed, which will be fast. I’d be surprised if it was even mastered, from the sound of it.

    Some clunkers, but it’s an amazing effort.
