    That you're doing a much better job is beyond a doubt. I seem to remember it was top 20 in the Rolling Stone list.
    I'm just here for the baseball.

    Yep. I was reviewing their list again last night, and there are quite a few WTF picks in there that wouldn't even make my top 200.

    30. Words (Between the Lines of Age) (Harvest, 1972)
    This was already a favorite for being an extended electric workout at the end of Neil's most popular album, known for its acoustic and country-rock songs. The keening interplay between Neil's guitar and Ben Keith's steel guitar, with Jack Nitzche's piano moving everything forward, is quite the journey. It became an even bigger favorite when I was fortunate enough to witness its third-ever known live performance.
    Wait, how is that even possible?
    That's right, Neil played this song once in 1973 and then not again until his 2000 tour with the Music in Head/Friends and Relatives band, featuring Keith, Duck Dunn, Jim Keltner, Spooner Oldham, his wife Pegi and his sister Astrid. I was at the second show of the tour in Camden. There are so many possibilities for jamming in this song that it's unfathomable he waited 28 years to play it regularly onstage. At least he has realized the error of his ways, and has played it 134 times in the past 20 years -- though never with Crazy Horse.

    Live at Red Rocks 2000 version. This is more or less what I heard on that night in Camden:

    29. Walk On (On the Beach, 1974)
    The "ditch trilogy" has a theme song. Some of the fans Neil picked up in the early '70s were confused by Time Fades Away, and the executives at his label were baffled by Tonight's the Night, which he recorded after the TFA tour, but Neil laid out for them why he's doing what he's doing in On the Beach's single:

    "I hear some people been talking me down
    Bring up my name, pass it around
    They don't mention the happy times
    They do their thing, I do mine

    Ooh baby that's hard to change
    I can't tell them how to feel
    Some get stoned, some get strange
    But sooner or later it all gets real"

    Neil was doing his thing and being real, and everyone else just needed to deal. That's how he's conducted his whole career post-1972 and it's all summarized here.

    He even couched the message in music that wouldn't sound out of place on Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. This is the only OtB song featuring the remnants of Crazy Horse and it was probably recorded during the Tonight's the Night sessions.

    I just noticed that you have Broken Arrow at #52. I am not sure how I missed this travesty of justice.

    I must protest in the strongest possible terms.

    Time Fades Away and Welfare Mother’s unranked? That’s a major credibility fail right there.

    As is Birds unranked and being way too low on/not ranking most of the best stuff from Ragged Glory. I will have a lot to say about their "big picture" problems after the countdown is done.

    I presume you mean it should be higher? Your wording isn't clear.
