Special Deluxe


I don't read fast .. at all ... but I am , for me, tearing through "Special Deluxe" by Neil Young. As I've said this nearly went straight to the charity shop but it is very readable. Also it has a lot of blank separator pages and pages containing one of Neil's drawings of one of his cars , so it's not really 375 pages of print to read. It does give a great insight into his musical history and his incredibly difficult family background and you do find a lot that maybe you didn't know. I have certainly learned a lot.

The really odd thing is that this book (a $30 American important seems out of print in the UK unless you want to go for the CD version at £167, though it is readily available on Amazon.com , very strange. And even stranger is that two days ago it was out of print today you can get it at a very reasonable price.

I was originally going to title this "Skinning Satsumas" which has been a big part of me try to get myself out of this 'flu' situation but obviously that is just a fleeting instance.

I also want to be a little more relaxed in my posting this year, so I don't expect anywhere near the posts I made last year. So another Neil Young song for us
