Before they hit the road Mark Morriss has given us his top 10 albums…

1. Neil Young- On The Beach

Mark Morriss ‘

 People seem rather fixated with Harvest when discussing the high water marks of Neil Young’s career, and it is a masterpiece make no mistake, but for me this is his finest hour. It’s dark yet melodic, falling apart loose yet as focused as a surgeon, tender and furious. And all within 8 songs.
