  1. My opinion-Laid back country,bit dated sounding,nice lyrics

    Wonder if these two laidback country-tinged tracks (Moonlight Rider & Sunflower) simply didn’t fit any ND albums of the late 70’s & 80’s.

    1. Moonlight Rider

      The version of Moonlight Rider that we have from The Story of My Life LP and was removed from it (later renamed Headed for the Future) is different from the version that will be on the release of 6 discs in November.  They are different takes.

      1. I prefer the other take

        I assume the take I’ve heard before is the one you’re referring to, the recording is scratchy and the pitch is all wrong LOL. But the lyrics are more refined, and it has an energy that this new take doesn’t quite have. I actually prefer the old, scratchy one

  2. Other Options

    The previous post from my brother, Jeff didn’t go farther.  it is not known the new version of “Moonlight Rider” plus the other ones was re-recorded, as a  different take way back in the 70’s/80’s or Neil decided to re-record them recently within a few years to give them a updated sound. Nobody knows the recording dates unless they’ll be mentioned in the 6 Cd box set coming out soon.

  3. I like the chorus

    but Sunflower is my favorite of the two “new” songs. Looking forward to the rest but more than these really looking forward to hearing what songs he’s writing now at this stage of his life.
