The Canadian musical persuasion

In a retrospective kinda way, much of the music stuff that’s stuck with me came from musicians from Canada. Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, The Band (except for Arkansas’ Levon Helm), Glenn Gould… We rarely discuss the Canadian persuasion of musical influence in our ears. Tonight, I listened to Neil Young’s song “Sugar Mountain” (a sweet B-side) a few times. He wrote it 1964 on his 19th birthday, in Winnipeg.

British invasion aficionado musicologists, kindly "piss off"...for tonight anyway :-)
