The Neil Young/”Fork In The Road” business I wrote about yesterday seems to be moving on apace, as things suddenly seem to do in Young’s world. Thrasher’s Wheat now have a video and lyrics of the song.

And thanks to Mark In Norfolk, who reported rumours that an album, also called “Fork In The Road”, is looking likely to appear in the next couple of months. Sending, we can only assume, “Archives” and “Toast” hurtling back yet again. It did occur to me yesterday, though, that the non-Linc/Volt songs premiered live before Christmas could be “Toast” songs, conceivably?

More news as and when, obviously. In the meantime, a meaty second playlist of the year today, kicked off by Springsteen’s “Working On A Dream” album, which briefly manifested itself in the office a couple of days ago. Only heard it all the way through once, and I’m obliged to respect a reviewing embargo on this one for a few more days. I suspect the lawyers won’t be dispatched, though, if I risk revealing that it’s good at this early date. Proper preview next week, with a prevailing wind.
