  1. 18/20. I thought Hank wrote “Oh Lonesome Me”. I guessed which album Cortez was on and I guessed incorrectly. I rarely listen to his studio albums. I’m more of a Live Neil fan.

  2. “Oh Lonesome Me” was written and recorded in December 1957 by Don Gibson with Chet Atkins. The song topped the country chart for eight weeks.

  3. 18 out of 20…not too shabby. I too got fooled on the Hank Williams tune BUT i have no excuse for missing “Heart of Gold”….Why Do I Keep Fuckin’ Up? LOL. Long Live Shakey!!

  4. 19/20, so this is a score I can happily live with.
    However, I tend to disagree with the answer to question 16. If you don’t count ‘Time Fades Away’, which was recorded live, and ‘Long May You Run’, which was an album by the Stills-Young Band, album number twenty should be ‘Ragged Glory’. ‘Sleeps With Angels’ is his 22nd album, for those who can count. But hell, it’s a bit hard to start a discussion with a computer, isn’t it?

  5. Hello Dirk, he’s made so many albums it is difficult to work out. We checked on Wiki, (which we are the first to admit is not always correct), but they say Sleeps with Angels is the 20th studio album by Neil, released on August 16, 1994.

    Anyway, the point is he’s made some great records, and we are now putting Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere on the deck which is always a favourite in the office!

    I wanna live
    with a cinnamon girl
    I could be happy
    the rest of my life
    With a cinnamon girl…

  6. Geez I tapped the wrong section on two inadvertently so 117 instead of 19…ole Hanks Lonesome I guess is I’m so Lonesome I Could Cry. Ok…. who wrote the Neil road brook entitled Neil Young Nation?
