Published Apr 18, 2011Earlier this week, we learned that a Neil Young tribute show featuring Wilco, Elvis Costello and many more would be coming to DVD. Now, here's another tribute to Bernard Shakey, albeit with less high-profile contributors.
It's called Headed for the Ditch: A Tribute to Neil Young, and it was put together by Universal Electricity. The title comes from a quote about the song "Heart of Gold," as the singer reflected, "This song put me in the middle of the road / Travelling there soon became a bore so I headed for the ditch."
See the tracklist below, and note that prolific BC-based electro artist Teen Daze contributed a cover of the classic "Harvest Moon," while Toronto's Foxes in Fiction has redone "Tell Me Why."
