Mother Nature on the Run

You probably know that Neil Young has had only one Top Thirty hit in his long career, and that it -- "Heart of Gold" -- went all the way to Number One in 1972. You may even know that Neil does have another Top Ten record to his credit, since he wrote Nicolette Larson's wan "Lotta Love," from 1978.

What I didn't know until this morning was that Neil wrote at least one more Top Thirty hit, since a British group called Prelude took its cover of "After the Goldrush" to Number 22 in the fall of 1974. I'm sure I've never heard it.
