Neil lighting a spark

I am preparing for a rare Sunday at work while sipping coffee and listening to the great FRED NEIL.
If there was such a thing as wearing out an MP3 (like we used to say about records), then I wearing out Neil's 1965 masterpiece, "BLEECKER & MACDOUGAL."

I am captivated by the songs, including the original version of "THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS LIFE," later covered by artists ranging from Jefferson Airplane to Gram Parsons.

Neil famously dropped out of the music scene in the 1970s to devote his time to ending the exploitation of DOLPHINS.

I admit I don't know enough about that aspect of Neil's life. I just know his songs light a spark inside me.
