Old Ways

Old Ways

Old Ways is a country album by Neil Young, released in 1985. Young refers to this album in interviews as Old Ways II, as he had originally planned to release a country album titled Old Ways I in 1983. Geffen objected to this, asking Young for a "rock 'n roll" album, which Young would give them as Everybody's Rockin'. Old Ways I would have contained many still-unreleased songs, one of which was "Depression Blues", which appeared on Young's Geffen-era compilation Lucky Thirteen.
