Neil Young released his second album “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” on May 14, 1969. It was his first with his longtime backing band Crazy Horse. The album is on the list of 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
The album contains three songs that became standards in Young’s performance repertoire: “Cinnamon Girl”, “Down by the River” and “Cowgirl in the Sand”. Something you may not be aware of it that Neil had a 103º fever when he wrote those songs.
Do you remember where you were when you first heard this LP or at least some of the songs off of it?
Happy 49th Birthday to “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere”!!
