Neil Young will receive another award from the Grammys when he becomes part of the Recording Academy's Producers and Engineers wing.
According to Grammys.com, the honour will take place during Grammy Week on Jan. 21, 2014 at Village Studios in Los Angeles.
"The efforts of the P&E Wing continue to raise awareness about the importance of sound quality and the preservation and integrity of recorded music," the Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow said in a statement. "This year, it is with great honor that we pay tribute to a musical icon who has been tireless in his own efforts to draw attention to the importance of hearing music as the artists who created it intended, and who has continually set precedents of excellence within the music community. The contributions of Neil Young are innumerable, as is his incomparable body of work, and we look forward to an unforgettable evening with this legendary artist."
The musician was also lauded for his work regarding the innovative digital audio service Pono which is on the horizon as well as the blu-ray release of his "Archives, Volume 1 1963-1972." Previous honorees include Jimmy Iovine, Quincy Jones and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell among others.
Despite his lengthy career, Neil Young won his first Grammy in 2010 for best art design on "Archives" and the following year he took home best rock song for "Angry World."
News of the honor comes as Young has announced the release of "Live At The Cellar Door" on Dec. 10 through Reprise Records. The album is culled from a six-show stand Young played at the Washington, D.C. venue from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2, 1970 and includes a solo version of "Cinnamon Girl" with the musician on piano. Some of the songs featured on the 12-track effort includes material which would appear on After The Gold Rush as well as Everyone Knows This Is Nowhere.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse were slated to play some North American dates earlier this summer when guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro fractured a bone in his hand, forcing some dates to be cancelled.

Neil Young - Old Man
February 23, 1971 www.amazon.com Watch the full show: thesixtiesarchive.blogspot.com "Old Man" is a song written and performed by Neil Young on his 1972 album Harvest. The song was written for the caretaker of the Northern California Broken Arrow Ranch, which Young purchased for $350000 in 1970. The song compares a young man's life to an old man's and shows that the young man has, to some extent, the same needs as the old one. James Taylor played six-string banjo (tuned like a guitar) and sang on the song, and Linda Ronstadt also contributed vocals. In the movie Heart of Gold, Young introduces the song as follows: "About that time when I wrote (Heart of Gold), and I was touring, I had also -- just, you know, being a rich hippie for the first time -- I had purchased a ranch, and I still live there today. And there was a couple living on it that were the caretakers, an old gentleman named Louis Avala and his wife Clara. And there was this old blue Jeep there, and Louis took me for a ride in this blue Jeep. He gets me up there on the top side of the place, and there's this lake up there that fed all the pastures, and he says, "Well, tell me, how does a young man like yourself have enough money to buy a place like this?" And I said, "Well, just lucky, Louie, just real lucky." And he said, "Well, that's the darndest thing I ever heard." And I wrote this song for him." —Neil Young He tells a similar story when introducing the song at a February 23, 1971 performance broadcast by <b>...</b>

Neil Young - Harvest Moon Video
Studio version , Vh1 video, www.neilyoung.com Lyrics : Come a little bit closer Hear what I have to say Just like children sleepin' We could dream this night away. But there's a full moon risin' Let's go dancin' in the light We know where the music's playin' Let's go out and feel the night. Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you [ Find more Lyrics on mp3lyrics.org ] On this harvest moon. When we were strangers I watched you from afar When we were lovers I loved you with all my heart. But now it's gettin' late And the moon is climbin' high I want to celebrate See it shinin' in your eye. Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you On this harvest moon.
