Listen: Wish Neil Young a Happy Birthday (& Listen to Obscure “Little Wing” Recording)

Neil and The Ducks, 1977.

Happy Birthday, Neil!

Neil turns 68 today.

Neil recorded this version of “Little Wing” with The Ducks in 1977. It’s never been released. The Ducks included Moby Grape’s Bob Mosley (bass), Johnny Craviotto (drums) and singer/guitarist Jeff Blackburn. The band played around Santa Cruz during the summer of 1977.

You can hear the track at the excellent music blog, Aquarium Drunkard.

Here’s Neil singing “The Needle and the Damage Done” and “Journey Through the Past” on “The Johnny Cash Show” in 1971.
