Certain Songs #1258: Neil Young and Crazy Horse – “Like a Hurricane”

Album: American Stars & Bars
Year: 1977

Recorded at the Studio, Broken Arrow Ranch on November 29, 1975

“Like a Hurricane” just starts, seemingly in media res, with Neil in full guitar flight, playing a riff that is now, of course, instantly recognizable: a long trail of sustained notes that cyclone around each other for a few measures until Neil starts singing.
