Prairie Wind

After surviving a brain aneurysm earlier this year, Neil Young, 59, confronts mortality on his latest album, and thoughts of death surely become him. Whether leaving instructions not to be buried "Far from Home," preparing to pass on "This Old Guitar" or just plain feeling like he's 'Fallin' Off the Face of the Earth," Young delivers it all with a grizzled grace. Recorded in Nashville, Prairie Wind has the distinct air of country, with Emmylou Harris singing backup on three tracks. Meanwhile, the Fisk University Jubilee Singers add some old-time gospel spirit to songs like "When God Made Me."
