Neil Young, nugget #776544. With Young Shakespeare, the Loner unearths a stunning concert recorded at the Shakespeare Theater in Stratford, Connecticut on January 22, 1971, three days after the essential Live at Massey Hall 1971 released in 2007, performances from his Journey Through the Past Solo Tour. The Canadian legend’s website boldly declares that Young Shakespeare is better than Massey Hall, describing it as calmer and less flashy, having been recorded in a less prestigious venue than Massey Hall. For Young, it ranks as “the best ever, because it defines the era”. It’s an utterly apt description, with the songs and themes here capturing the dreams and nightmares shared by his generation (he was just 26). The sheer quality of the tracklisting also helps push this album into the legend zone – just read the titles! Tell Me Why, Old Man, The Needle and the Damage Done, Ohio, Dance Dance Dance, Cowgirl in the Sand, A Man Needs a Maid/Heart of Gold, Journey Through the Past, Don’t Let It Bring You Down, Helpless, Down by the River and Sugar Mountain feature Young’s guitar or piano and utterly perfect vocals. Above all, that stark nudity highlights the power of his lyrics and the beauty of these melodies. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Gone to heaven, Betty Davis remains the pioneer of feline soul sisters. The funk goddess par excellence. She was also the one who gave electricity to a certain Miles Davis, whose wife she was to be for a short time. But who were you Betty?

Neil Young in 10 Albums

It’s hard to shout “Rock’n’roll will never die!” without sounding like an idiot. But Neil Young can pull it off. Easily. For over half a century, the Canadian legend has proved himself to be one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, constantly renewing himself and taking rock’n’roll down both rustic and rougher paths. The proof lies in these ten albums.
