Ian McNabb – You Must Be Prepared to Dream

Back in the early 1990s, the ever-wonderful Ian McNabb, singer, songwriter, generally cool guy and major Neil Young fan was asked who he’d really like to record with. Being the major Neil Young fan that he is, he quite naturally said “Crazy Horse”, not really believing that they would actually ever consider doing such a thing. But they did, and the results appeared on the 1994 album Head Like a Rock, which contains some damn fine McNabb songs with the accompaniment of Ralph Molina on drums and Billy Talbot on bass on several songs. One of the best of these is You Must Be Prepared to Dream, which I loved at the time and still love now. What I didn’t appreciate at the time was the video, on the grounds that I never saw it. Fortunately, YouTube has come to my rescue, and here it is:
