This is homemade borscht. It was an experiment perhaps, not the mastered recipe of a grandma or Polish restaurant. And in it’s authentic flavor I found the warmth and love of a young family starting their lives in a nicely furnished Jersey City co-op. The borscht was good, because it wasn’t the result of a robotically repeated formula. And that’s why it was so good.
Neil Young Album: “TV EP & Best of the Unreleased (1995)
