When Neil Young came to Nashville to tape an appearance for The Johnny Cash Show on ABC television in February 1971, he had dinner with Elliot Mazer, the record producer who had left New York for the capital of country music and designed and built Quadrafonic Sound Studios in a two-storey house there. The singer-songwriter expressed a desire to use this facility and said all he needed was a rhythm section and a pedal steel guitarist. Mazer suggested Area Code 615 drummer Kenny Buttrey and then bassist Tim Drummond, who in turn mentioned local musician Ben Keith, one of Nashville's "A Team" of session players, best known at that point for playing the beautiful harmony part on Patsy Cline's signature song "I Fall to Pieces" in 1961. "I'd heard of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, of course," Keith later recalled. "But I had no idea that Neil recorded solo. I arrived for the session after he'd already started playing, so I set up real quietly, and I could tell this was not just another session, that this guy had some real magic happening. We cut half the album before he stopped to introduce himself! After that it got pretty exciting."

Released last summer on Blu-ray, DVD and CD, Neil Young's mammoth 10-disc retrospective, Archives Vol. 1 (1963-1972), drew rave reviews and went on to win a Grammy for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package, the right accolade for what is undoubtedly "the most ambitious artist collection ever released" as Reprise Records claimed.

Although Bobby Charles could neither read nor write music, nor play an instrument, he was a fine songwriter, writing the hit songs "See You Later, Alligator" (Bill Haley), "Walking to New Orleans" (Fats Domino) and "(I Don't Know Why) But I Do" (Clarence "Frogman" Henry). Keen to live in seclusion around the Louisiana swamps, he never promoted his own career, but a highly regarded album, Bobby Charles, with Dr. John and members of the Band, was released in 1972. His attitude to songwriting was simple: "When they come, they come."
