As of this writing, with the lockdown still in full force and vaccine distribution in its early stages, let's take our optimism any way we can get it. Which is to say that there's a lot of great music on tap for 2021, and confidence is high that there will be ticket sales in 2021 for future live shows that come off without a hitch. Also, Record Store Day 2021 is already confirmed for June 12, so it's never too early to mark your calendar for that Saturday!

If you guessed Led Zeppelin, you're right, but all of the above also applies to the Talking Heads, who came out of the Rhode Island School of Design in 1975 and parlayed a regular spot at New York's famed CBGB's into New Wave fame.

In October of 2018, I some of Neil's buried treasures. In honor of Homegrown, here are four more great, often overlooked albums from Young.
