On episode 30 of My Favorite Album, erudite Sydney rocker Simon Relf (The Tambourine Girls) steps into the pod booth to dig into the rough around the edges Neil Young classic album “On The Beach” (1974).
Along the way, they break down classic tracks “Ambulance Blues”, “Revolution Blues” and “Motion Pictures”, recall how Young’s refusal to conform to expectations has got him sued, discuss the narcotic confections named “Honey Slides” that fuelled the recording process and speculate on whether they would’ve liked the album in 1974.
The episode closes with a performance of the album’s classic song “For the Turnstiles” from Simon, with his Tambourine Girls and Deep Sea Arcade bandmate Nick Weaver joining him on guitar and harmonies.
