THE wife of legendary US troubadour Neil has had some of these songs squirreled away for more than three decades - long before they got hitched.

The other half of the album is made up of covers, the eponymous title suggesting she has stamped her identity all over them (with Neil's help on guitar et al).

But if that's the case, Pegi must have lost most of her self in the shadow of her husband.

The languid country rock numbers occasionally poke their heads into diverting, upbeat or original territory, but scurry away before it makes any lasting impact on the pervading, distinctly average Americana. One for Young obsessives only. **
