Hey Hey, My My

I don't know whether this news is a function of lagging record sales in general or an increase in popularity for Neil, but I think this is to be celebrated either way. It's not every week that an artist as talented as he is makes it into the Top Ten.

Neil Young has been a consistent presence on The Billboard 200 since the late 1960s, but only once has he ever debuted higher than the No. 6 position enjoyed this week by the Reprise set "Live at Massey Hall," taped in Toronto in 1971. Young previously reached No. 5 with the 1995 album "Mirror Ball," a collaboration with Pearl Jam.
