Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s new record, Americana, is streaming ahead of it’s release on Monday so we thought what better but to celebrate the multi-hit, multi-award winning, multi-talented musician that is Mr Young.

The Canadian has blessed our ears ever since 1968 when he released his self-titled debut album. He’s an iconic figure in music that was influenced in his early career by Bob Dylan and play while he was playing folk clubs with Joni Mitchell before going onto play Glastonbury, put on tribute concerts and write some of the greatest songs in modern music.

Creating the Ultimate Neil Young Playlist may be difficult, but being a 6 Music listener we think you’re up to the challenge…

To give you a bit of a lead, you could choose:
* Your favourite Neil Young tracks, b-sides or rarities
* Something from one of his many bands like Buffalo SpringfieldCrosby, Stills, Nash & Young, or Crazy Horse
* His influences ranging from Bob Dylan to Joni Mitchell, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash or even Elvis
* Collaborators like Pearl Jam, Emmylou Harris or Bruce Springsteen

* Bands who’ve clearly listened to Young’s work more than once like My Morning Jacket and Mumford and Sons

As always, get in touch with us on our Facebook Page, Tweet #Young6Music, drag a track onto our Spotify playlist or e-mail us with what you want to hear on Sunday from 6pm.
