TRACK: Neil Young & The Ducks – “Little Wing” (Live at Catalyst Club, 1977)
“Little Wing” is a song I’d heard before, but the original (off Hawks + Doves) is a quiet, acoustic track. This version blows the original out of the water. Which is odd, because generally speaking I prefer Neil Young’s more restrained, reflective songs. The Ducks had something special going with Young though. There are a ton of recordings of Neil Young & The Ducks floating around out there, so if you dig this it’s definitely worth seeking those out. This is far from the only great song in the mix, but it’s my personal favorite from the bunch.
