Neil Young – Sample And Hold (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th November 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

a-front

“Sample And Hold” is a single by Canadian musician and singer-songwriter Neil Young, released in 1982 from the album Trans on Geffen Records. The release was a departure for Neil Young who was best known for recording Folk/Rock. “Sample And Hold” is a new wave/space rock track complete with a vocoder distorting Young’s vocals. Young’s direction was influenced by the electronic experiments of the German band Kraftwerk, but more importantly he felt that distorting his voice reflected his attempts to communicate with his young son Ben who was born with cerebral palsy. While the album Trans was a top twenty hit in the US “Sample And Hold” failed to chart.
