C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Neil Young

And in this land of conditions I'm not above suspicion.

I think the fair assumption would be that if Neil Young, David Crosby, Rick Danko and Levon helm went into the studio to lay down a song (especially being the on record that followed the laid back Harvest album and his penchant for honey slides at the time) it may be an acoustic based, harmony laden affair.

That is not the case though with "Revolution Blues" from Neil's 1974 album On The Beach. The song, inspired by the Manson family, is sparse, wracked with paranoia and another mark on the checklist that has had many people declare Neil the Godfather Of Grunge.

It taught listeners to never expect Neil to stick to one sound for too long.
