Biography

Past is prologue, so someone said. But the acoustic prologue to “Driftin’ Back,” the epic (and we mean epic, clocking in as it does at more the 27 gripping minutes) opening song of Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s inspired album Psychedelic Pill, sets the calendar at right now. This is an artist, ever in the moment, fully grounded, firmly rooted, renewing the ... Read more in Amazon's Neil Young Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

After laboring in Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Neil Young finally hit perfect pitch--if his endearing off-center whine can be called "perfect"--with his third album. He's equally passionate with trippy riddles (has anybody figured out what "We've got mother nature on the run" means in the title track?) and pointed protest (after 30 years of rock-radio overplay, "Southern Man" still rings with truth about redneck racism). His creaky ensemble, including pianist Jack Nitzsche and rotating members of Crazy Horse, transforms ramshackle country and folk songs into soulful hippie hymns. --Steve Knopper

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Sound Quality For An Album Already Perfect July 15, 2009
By Charles
Format:Audio CD
I'm not going to waste your time with a long winded review of one of the greatest albums of the last fifty years. If you are a fan then you know how good it is. If you are not a fan or unfamiliar with his work, then this 1970 album should do the trick. If it doesn't get you into Neil then nothing in his catalog will. I'm also not going to post the same review for all four albums released, this review applies to all of the newly remastered solo albums (Neil Young, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, After The Gold Rush & Harvest) with regards to sound quality.

I had a sneaking suspicion they were going to remaster his catalog since it took way too long for the Archives box set to come out, especially considering how little unreleased material was actually on it. To some extent the box set, in my opinion, was a bit bloated and padded to charge a higher price. In any event, it appears the real reason it took so long was due to the fact that they were remastering everything possible in his catalog and wanted to have it all ready to release in the same general time frame.

I mainly want to focus on the remastering of this album, which is absolutely incredible. The liner notes state it was remastered from the original analog tapes and was an analog to HDCD 24 Bit 176 KHZ digital transfer...uh...OK...sounds good to me! This album sounds so far superior to the original CD pressing that it made my weak car speakers sound like they had had a BOSE makeover. Upon hearing some of the album tracks on the Archives box set it was obvious how incredible they sounded and I hoped they would do the same treatement to his catalog.

5.0 out of 5 stars great album, great sound restored July 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Released in the same year as Déjà Vu, Young's landmark reunion album with former Buffalo Springfield collaborator Steven Stills, David Crosby and Graham Nash, After the Gold Rush understandably focused on Young's solo compositions and idiosyncratic vocal style. Although it always had a slightly hastily put together quality, as if Young were rushing to his next assignment with Stills, it was highly successful at the time both commercially and artistically, and has aged extremely well. In fact, along with Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, which had a more rock orientation and which also produced the classic "Down by the River," After the Gold Rush is arguably young's best overall album, blending rock-tinged songs like "Southern Man," basically a one off on "Down by the River," with lovely ballads such as "Only Love Can Break Your Heart," and "Don't Let It Bring You Down".

Like all the recent Neil Young reissues, this has benefited immensely from the remastering to HDCD sound. Unlike some remastering efforts these days, which tend to be aggressive and edgy, this one has made the sound more "musical and mellow while at the same time restoring the dynamic impact of Young's forceful guitar strumming and twangy lead guitar playing. In other words, it sounds about as close as a CD can come to sounding like an vinyl LP, without the clicks and pops of course. This reissue is long overdue, and it's great to finally hear it again with all the force and mastery of the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long May Neil's Chrome Heart Shine! August 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This was the album the prolific Neil Young released right after his first flirtation with CSN&Y, and once again he shows just how wide and deep his musical talents are. All we aging sixties kids all have a copy of both this album and his "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" album; it is standard issue for older babyboomers. Indeed, out of the welter of so many artists with so much in the way of incredible and unforgettable music, Neil Young stands alone as a sixties icon, someone who has consistently done the music his way, and with great sincerity, consistent authenticity, and a singular verve. No one has produced the range and quantity of memorable songs and melodies, as has Mr. Young, who has always produced what he wanted on his terms, and has never sold out to commercialism or tried to appeal to the mainstream audience.
Here we have so many terrific songs like "Tell Me Why", "After The Goldrush", and his smash hit, "Southern Man", that it is hard to remember that this is just one of several such albums he released in short order over a three or four year period. IN a number of other songs, such as "Only Love Can Break Your Heart", which Linda Ronstadt later did a great cover of, Neil's genius and guitar virtuosity shines, as it does in songs like "Don't Let It Bring You Down", "Birds", "I Believe In You", and a personal favorite of mine, "When You Dance". Young may well be an iconoclast, someone who is unpredictable, unreliable from a business sense, and something of a prima donna, but he always plays straight from the heart (and groin), and one knows that the guy playing that axe so masterfully is absolutely in control of the incredible sounds emanating from it. Wow! Put this baby in the CD player and listen as the CD illustrates why Neil Young will never die! Long may his chrome heart shine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Benefits of remaster may not be apparent to all July 22, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I did two sets of A-B comparisons of the original CD issues to the recent reissues for these albums (NY, Goldrush, Nowhere and Harvest). One was on my mp3 player (FLAC) and the other on my home stereo.

Like with many recent reissues the volume is increased (only slightly, thank goodness) and the bass is beefed up (punchier, more delineated, less of a blob sound). Unlike with many recent reissues (the Stones come to mind), distortion is not introduced with these changes.

On the electric numbers I frankly did not hear much difference. It may say more about how well the original CDs were mastered (which I had always thought were just fine). The differences really shine with the acoustic numbers, especially on Harvest.

Good upgrade for us fanatic Neil fans, but many won't hear much of a difference.
