Everybody's Rockin'

Today, I decided to listen to the album “Everybody’s Rockin'”. This record features Neil Young and The Shocking Pinks and was written by Neil Young while he was going through a rebellious stage in the ’80s.

As the story goes, Neil Young was told by his record company, Geffen Records, to make a “Rock & Roll” record. This was after his previous record, “Trans”, which was a synth/ electronic record. Neil Young decided to make a record in the style of Rock & Roll from when he was a kid. The result was an album of songs with stand-up bass, old time piano and guitar, and doo-wop singers. Soon after the release of this record, Neil left Geffen Records and signed with Reprise and continued to release amazing Neil Young records, from electric to acoustic to country.

Comment below and tell me what you think of Neil Young’s rebellion!
