'Toast' (2001)

Sometime in late 2000 or early 2001, Neil Young went into the studio with Crazy Horse and cut an album named Toast. The only song to see the light of day from these sessions was the brilliant "Goin' Home" on the otherwise underwhelming Are You Passionate?, but for years Young has claimed that Toast is on the verge of coming out. "Toast is done," he told Rolling Stone in 2008. "It's an amazing listening experience. It was recorded in 5.1. It's a mind-blowing record, and I don't think it's a commercial record, but it's great rock & roll, very moody, kind of jazzy. It was recorded in the same place where Coltrane was recorded, so there's a lot of heavy stuff in there." Sounds amazing. When can we hear it?
