But, before we get to this week’s quiz, we’d like to recognize the two brilliant readers who correctly answered last week’s question, which was: an Anagram, “Ogreish Groner” actually unscrambles to become, George Harrison!  We also asked what was the first ever record he had released that he had written? The answer was “Cry For a Shadow” Which  George co-Wrote with John Lennon back in 1961 when the band was recording as “Tony Sherden and the Beatles! No one got the second half correct! HOWEVER, one loyal reader swooped in at “Beatle Speed” and identified our mystery Anagram! The Lovely and Loyal Julie Ismert,   Nailed The Question in minutes, followed closely by Fast Fred Vogel!….So That confirms Julie is the lucky winner of this week’s Groovey Omnivore Recording! Congrats Jules! And “There’s always this week” Fred!

But! Now it’s time for the NEW question for the week!

  1. MY MAIN GUY…NEIL YOUNG…BUT WHAT DO I REALLY KNOW??? Probably not enough but anyway I’s state that Neil WAS NOT member of POCO, FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS, and THE BYRDS. And since I am ALWAYS trolling for Neil Young albums, believe it or not i found a pristine sleeve and vinyl of “Comes A Time” {I ALWAYS wanted this] and Neil wrote “lotta love” and on this album was sung by Nicolette Larson. What a HUGE HIT THIS WAS!!! And it was not until I had the album that I ever knew!! And God Bless Pegi Young.
    You know I REALLY NEED A “ancestry .com type of tool to put together ALL these most wonderful connections with all these incredible artists!! Although Neil was not officially listed as a member of some of these groups…he was ALWAYS THEIR in great spirit and affiliation!!!
    the wood….thanx “shoe”!!

  2. I was going to say Judy Collins (Sweet Judy Blue Eyes). One of those guys wrote that for and about her. Stephen Stills?

    • Hey Denise,
      You’re on the right track but, not quite there! It is true that STEPHEN STILLS wrote a song for his then girlfriend Judy Collins! One we all know and love, with the incredibly clever title “Suite, Judy Blue Eyes”, Not “Sweet Judy Blue Eyes” as many people mistakenly refer to it!
      But, we were looking for Neil Young’s romantic path!
      Thanx as always for joining in the convo!

  3. I do not believe Neil was in the Byrds, Poco or the Burrito Brothers. Girl Friend was Nicolette Larson, Song was, “Gonna take a Lotta Love”, or “Lotta Love”.

    • Cutis Stone!
      Wow, at certified country music legend!
      Great to see you join the conversation!
      …””Hey Buddy”?
