Product Description

Everybody's Rockin' by Neil Young

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Nestled somewhat uncomfortably between a haywired electro-pop experiment, 1983's Trans, and the countrified Old Ways, this rockabilly curio now stands as one more wild swing from Neil Young during a particularly shaky phase. Backed by the five-member Shocking Pinks, Young works his way through a selection of covers and slight originals. In retrospect, Everybody's Rockin' presages 1988's This Note's for You; this is roots-rock Neil, a fellow with a taste for swamp-pop (the Slim Harpo weeper "Rainin' in My Heart"), easy-rollin' blues ("Bright Lights, Big City"), and raveups (Bobby Freeman's "Betty Lou's Got a New Pair of Shoes," his own "Kinda Fonda Wanda"). Young sounds amused but less then committed, as evidenced by the fact that he'd soon wash the grease out of his hair and disband the Shocking Pinks. --Steven Stolder

And anything would be better than re-releasing this.

There is a lot of good fun here, quite different from the hard-rocking good fun found on discs such as 're.ac.tor', but good fun nonetheless.
Don Schmittdiel
I would recommend buying this album and give it a good listen to TODAY!!!!!

Neil Young has always been a unique and diverse songwriter and musician. Here, again, he swings in an entirely different direction. The end result is an uplifting, fun bouncy trip back to the innocence of the fifties.
I've always respected Neil for his variety and imagination. He is , in my opinion, by far the most talented musician in the field today and will always remain so.
Granted, this is no way close to his past albums with vivid tales and dreamy landscape memoir songs that tend to conjour up images for its listeners. But this album is just pure fun.
A note of trivia: this album was actually an act of retaliation to his record producers at the time. They demanded he cut a certain number of records in a time period. Disgruntled by their greed and "assembly line" approach to putting out music, Neil launched this record as a way to fight back the system. Neil himself did not expect it to be a seller ; rather a financial burden to the record company.
This is why the record is so rare. The record company only produced a limited supply after they listened to the content.
But, beside the fact, this is a nice record. It would make a great addition to that juke box in the diner!

While there's a lot of squawkin' about the content and running time of this 1983 album, it is everything it should be. Nobody raised a stink in 1976 when John Lennon released his 'Rock and Roll' album, covering the early hits that had inspired him in his youth, and there is no reason to do so with this similar effort from Neil. Songs from rock and roll's genesis rarely exceeded three minutes, so only one song in this ten song set does as well. Like Lennon, Neil earned the right to do this, and he does it just as well as his predecessor.
The album opens with two covers. The first is the familiar Bobby Freeman #20 hit from 1958, 'Betty Lou's Got a New Pair of Shoes', and the second James Moore's (aka Slim Harpo) #34 country-blues hit from 1961, 'Rainin' In My Heart'. Both are faithful renditions, the former sounding a bit lackluster, especially for an album opener, but Neil builds on it, so perhaps that's the idea (or it could be that it is just lackluster). Neil's delivery is particularly well-suited to the crying-out-loud overtones of the latter Harpo tune, however.
The heart of the album follows, with Neil penning four great tunes that sound as if they had been born and raised in the late 1950's. 'Payola Blues' is a hilarious take on jumping through hoops to get your record on the radio, featuring a "Cash-a-wad-a-wad-a" background vocal from Larry Byrom, Anthony Crawford, and Rick Palombi that is just great schtick. The fifth track, 'Kinda Fonda Wanda' is similarly tongue-in-cheek, blowing us past the Sue's (Peggy and Runaround) to hail the 'virtues' of Wanda, who always "wanta, wanta, wanta". Sandwiched between is the best number on the disc, Neil's 'Wonderin'. The quartet is rounded out with 'Jellyroll Man'.

Neil young goes fifties rock 'n roll!
This is wonderful. I am sure that Neil Young had a lot of fun making this and I know that I had a lot of fun listening to it.
The album is a collection of ten songs in fifties rock and roll style. Lots of echo especially on the vocals, syrupy backing vocals, classic twelve bar chord progressions. Added in are occacional bursts of harmonica that sound like sixties Dylan. It's great.
The songs all sound fresh and explore many differet facets of the period. The lyrics range from from the pastiche of "JellyRoll Man" to a strident complaint about the music business in "Payola Blues" all delivered with Neil Young's characteristic vocal range.
You only get 25 minutes of music for your money on this album but I guess that, in that time, Neil Young said just about all that he had to say in this style. More would probably have lead to some degree of repetition.
This album will not appeal to everyone but any Neil Young fan with a sense of humour will enjoy it.

As a long time Neil Young fan, I purchased this album in the late 80's on vinyl as one of the final pieces to my collection. I love Neil's quirkiness, and I'm a big fan of Trans, and even (at points) Landing on Water. However, this album is essentially a curio for die-hards, and is not something you're destined to play much. I like Kinda Fonda Wanda and a few others, but get this album after you get all others, except maybe Old Ways or Journey Through the Past (if you can find that on Vinyl).
I'd much rather see those old Reprise albums re-released. Particularly On The Beach & Time Fades Away. I think Geffen released Re-Ac-Tor, which is also preferable. One of my all-time favs, "Shots" is on that one....but less I digress....

Upon first listening to this album, I was completly blown away. What Young has captured on this gem of a record is nothing short of brillance. Many people say that it can easily be tossed aside as fodder and that the short length of the album alone makes it not worth the purchase price. But what Young has done is gone back to a magical time in rock and roll. A time when a simple 12 bar blues progression and sweet backup vocals made up rock and roll. Without music such as this, there would be no "rock and roll" as we know it today. No Zepplin, no Beatles, no Floyd, and certainlly none of the bands today. This album pays tribute to that by-gone era and is worth another look.
