Artículo sobre Revolution Blues

La desde hace algún tiempo e-revista Crawdaddy trae un artículo sobre Revolution Blues, en inglés, eso sí:
Something about being splendidly famous didn’t sit right with Neil Young. His star had steadily ascended throughout the later portion of the ’60s, and then went supernova with the release of Harvest in 1972.

The tours and records that immediately followed were a reckless expedition into the jungles of paranoia and despair, navigated with bloodshot eyes.
