Exactly what I expected from Neil Young. Without a doubt, I am musically richer now, than before I bought this CD.

Format: Audio CD
While there's a lot of squawkin' about the content and running time of this 1983 album, it is everything it should be. Nobody raised a stink in 1976 when John Lennon released his 'Rock and Roll' album, covering the early hits that had inspired him in his youth, and there is no reason to do so with this similar effort from Neil. Songs from rock and roll's genesis rarely exceeded three minutes, so only one song in this ten song set does as well. Like Lennon, Neil earned the right to do this, and he does it just as well as his predecessor.
The album opens with two covers. The first is the familiar Bobby Freeman #20 hit from 1958, 'Betty Lou's Got a New Pair of Shoes', and the second James Moore's (aka Slim Harpo) #34 country-blues hit from 1961, 'Rainin' In My Heart'. Both are faithful renditions, the former sounding a bit lackluster, especially for an album opener, but Neil builds on it, so perhaps that's the idea (or it could be that it is just lackluster). Neil's delivery is particularly well-suited to the crying-out-loud overtones of the latter Harpo tune, however.
The heart of the album follows, with Neil penning four great tunes that sound as if they had been born and raised in the late 1950's. 'Payola Blues' is a hilarious take on jumping through hoops to get your record on the radio, featuring a "Cash-a-wad-a-wad-a" background vocal from Larry Byrom, Anthony Crawford, and Rick Palombi that is just great schtick. The fifth track, 'Kinda Fonda Wanda' is similarly tongue-in-cheek, blowing us past the Sue's (Peggy and Runaround) to hail the 'virtues' of Wanda, who always "wanta, wanta, wanta". Sandwiched between is the best number on the disc, Neil's 'Wonderin'. The quartet is rounded out with 'Jellyroll Man'.

Upon first listening to this album, I was completly blown away. What Young has captured on this gem of a record is nothing short of brillance. Many people say that it can easily be tossed aside as fodder and that the short length of the album alone makes it not worth the purchase price. But what Young has done is gone back to a magical time in rock and roll. A time when a simple 12 bar blues progression and sweet backup vocals made up rock and roll. Without music such as this, there would be no "rock and roll" as we know it today. No Zepplin, no Beatles, no Floyd, and certainlly none of the bands today. This album pays tribute to that by-gone era and is worth another look.

I remember when this record came out in 1983, I bought it without hearing any tracts because I was a Neil Young fan. Upon playing it for the first time, I was surprized at what I was hearing, and it put me in a good mood. It is not typical Neil Young, but it demonstrates Neil's great versatility as a performer. He could rock better than many of those neo-50s rockabilly and rock bands.
Knowing that American Stars & Bars is just now being released on CD, I logged on to Amazon.com to pre-order it. I found this gem, along with "Old Ways" so placed an order for all three of these recordings. I agree with the other reviewers on this title, that it should have been longer than 24 minutes. At least, when it was reissued, it should have been made as a 2 on 1 cd including "Old Ways". Oh well, "Everybody's Rockin" will almost make you imagine that you are back in the 50s.

This is one of Neil's many 80s genre expeditions, and, while the songs are upbeat and fun, has very little depth. Neil released it as a payback to David Geffen, his record company exec who insisted he shelve his country project (which became "Old Ways") and release a more rock album like "Rust Never Sleeps." This is hardly "Rust Never Sleeps," and it resulted in Geffen suing Young for not sounding enough like himself (the latter lost, of course). I've read Neil quoted as saying the above and also as saying that this album is "as good as 'Tonight's the Night.'" Trust me, it's not, and he probably knows it, although who am I to judge. If you find this album on vinyl at a garage sale in good condition, by all means grab it. But whether or not it's worth $$$ is a matter of personal opinion. Mine is that, while I dig the music, that much for a 24-minute album is hardly worth the money.

When this CD was released I was 13 years old. I saw the video on MTV for "Wonderin'" and my older brothers saying "Dang, what happened Neil?!?". However, I was hooked! I ordered it on cassette at the time and fell in love with all the tracks. It was my first exposure to Neil Young. I know this disc takes a LOT of heat but it is obvious it was meant to be a fun disc and tribute to the 50's. What else would you expect when it says "This one's for you Alan Freed"? I always felt this stuff should be the background music on Happy Days.
What inspired Neil to record a CD like this? Stray Cats? Probably not, but I was listening to them at the time as well. (And if you're a Cats you'll enjoy this). Very short at around 25 minutes this CD has original material as well as some fabulous covers. When I found this on CD in 2000, I immediately picked up a copy. "Neil & The Shocking Pinks" is not a transistion record or a "miss". Neil knew exactly what he was doing when he recorded this and it sounds as good today as it did in 1983. Or in 1953! Good clean fun, much better than a lot of the bad influece stuff the media shoves down our throats these days.
