With the impending release of Neil Young’s famous lost album, Homegrown, he has released Try as an appetising single. Recorded between 1974 & 1975, Homegrown has surfaced occasionally in the form of (low fidelity) bootlegs, but never seen an official (well mixed & mastered) release. This is set to change with an official release set for next month.
Rarely heard outside of a couple of piano based live performances over the years, Try is classic ’70’s Neil Young. A lilting country ballad with gently strummed guitars & slow but purposeful percussion which gives it the air of a melancholic march. Extra melodic content is provided by a few dusty piano chords & some pretty lapsteel.
