In 1971, Neil Young released one of his biggest hits from the album Harvest. It was recorded as an acoustic song, as Neil Young was unable to stand due to a back injury. He recorded the song in Nashville, where James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt were for the TV-show of Johnny Cash. They joined him for the backing vocals. In Canada and the US, it became a number 1 hit, and in the UK it was number 10. Enjoy

Back in 1958, the song It’s So Easy was sung by the Crickets. One of their members was Buddy Holly, who recorded some hits solo later. They would not reach the charts with this song. In the seventies, the song was picked up by Linda Ronstadt. She recorded in 1977, and did reach the charts: number 5 in the US and number 11 in the UK. Another artist that had a go on the song several times was Paul McCartney. First with the Beatles, later solo, but he did not manage to chart with the song. Enjoy
