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

The first stop for anybody new to Neil Young's music, this 34-song set (originally released in 1977) traces his growth from Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young to Crazy Horse to his Harvest band, the Stray Gators. The album defined Young to rock radio the way Hot Rocks determined which Rolling Stones songs would become classics, but this is more than a quickie greatest-hits collection. Rarities and hits--Springfield's "Mr. Soul," CSNY's "Ohio," and Young's "Cinnamon Girl," "Heart of Gold," and the closing "Long May You Run"--develop in thematic and chronological patterns. --Steve Knopper

Product Description

A fantastic 2-CD collection of Neil's best-from Buffalo Springfield through CSNY to his own enigmatic solo career-featuring Southern Man; Down by the River; Helpless; Ohio; Sugar Mountain; Like a Hurricane; Heart of Gold; After the Gold Rush , and lots more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything in its right place September 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Ordinarily, I'm not much of a believer in greatest hits packages. Yeah, they're good for the car or for slapping on the stereo at parties. But I tend to feel they're bad mojo, particularly when you're talking about an artist as talented and multi-faceted as Neil Young. In a world where, say, The Rolling Stones have created perfect, self-contained units like "Beggar's Banquet," "Let it Bleed," "Sticky Fingers," "Between the Buttons" and others, why would anyone want to mainline their music with something like "Hot Rocks." It's like watching ONLY the shoot 'em up scenes in "The Wild Bunch" without the color and exposition of the less-well-known but equally satisfying scenes.
Neil Young's "Decade," however, is one place where I make a serious exception to my music-geek inflexibility. And I think it's because Young has covered so much ground and gone in so many directions that this collection kind of gives the new listener a good road map.
Since all of the various aspects of Young's career are fairly complicated and completely engrossing in their own right, "Decade" allows you to focus on just the touchstones. With "Decade" you get a sampling of Buffalo Springfield, solo work, CSN&Y tunes, his forays into symphonic walls of sound as well those made from guitar workouts with Crazy Horse.
And, also, I just simply can't begrudge a collection of music with 34 great frickin' songs on it (yes, I know this has 35 songs -- I've never, ever been able to stomach "A Man Needs A Maid" but that's my problem and I can handle it).

5.0 out of 5 stars An inscrutable collection except for one thing... October 8, 1999
By D. Mok
Format:Audio CD
...that is, Neil Young's career can't be represented just by two CDs. Hopefully, the upcoming boxed set will do him justice because, even if he has clear ups (Buffalo Springfield, Deja Vu-era CSNY, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Zuma, Tonight's the Night, After the Gold Rush, Freedom...) and downs (Trans, Re-actor, '80s CSNY) in his career, an overview is absolutely essential for him at this point.
But the music itself on Decade? What can you say to these songs? "Down to the Wire", "Mr. Soul", "Expecting to Fly", "Southern Man", "Down by the River", "I Am a Child", "Ohio", "Helpless", "Old Man", "Heart of Gold", "Like a Hurricane", "The Needle and the Damage Done", "After the Gold Rush", "Tonight's the Night", "Cortez the Killer", "Winterlong", "Soldier", "Long May You Run", "Cinnamon Girl"...
This set belongs on any collection. Even if you own the whole Young catalogue already, it's still amusing to read his liner notes. Besides, greatest-hits sets provide for great utility listens, when you don't feel like going through all 50 or so releases that Young was instrumental in creating (including Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, solo, with Crazy Horse). Dig in.

Format:Audio CD
I first bought Neil Young-Decade Circa 1978 or should I say I begged my mom to buy it for me. First I had the 8-track and when that got snagged and ruined I got the LP. A few year's later in college I bought the double Cassette. This past spring 2001, almost a quarter century later, I bought the CD and Wow!!!what a treasure chest of music history. I always knew Neil Young is a great songwriter and performer, but at age 38 I realize his musical genius.
Decade covers a wide range of musical styles, from heavy duty distortion ballads ( Cowgirl In The Sand and Like A Hurricane), to clean country rock (Cinnamon Girl, Heart of Gold, I Am a Child)....Political statements are obvious on "Ohio" and "Campaigner". A good example of Young's haunting vocals are best demonstrated on the love song "I Believe In You". "Winterlong" reminds me of love in a honky tonk saloon somewhere far away from the stress of urban life.
My favorite part of the collection are the first 5 songs (Down to the Wire, Burned, Mr. Soul, Broken Arrow, and Waiting to Fly) it is soaked in psychedelia and the essence of another time. It reminds me of my youth when Jimmy Carter was President and we were all happy.
Decade is fun to get stoned to on your day off or when you want to play hooky from work.
P.S. the only other recording I've owned in record, 8-track, Cassette and CD is Led Zep's Physical Graffitti

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty damn great, but needs an upgrade. January 31, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As far as the musical content goes, let me just reiterate what everyone else has said: this is one of the most intelligent compilation albums ever done, and a perfect introduction to (and summation of) Young's earliest and best work. And so, for musical content, I'd give Decade five stars.
From a CD reissue standpoint, however, this set--like the rest of Young's catalog--merits one star at best. The sound quality is abominable (ironic, given the audiophile inclinations of the artist himself). The artwork is a mockery of the original LP set. And, though the track-by-track notes from Young himself are most enjoyable, nobody today would even think of doing a "definitive" retrospective without a decent historical/critical essay of some kind.
What is long overdue is for Reprise (perhaps in conjunction with the Rhino label) to give this set, like the rest of Young's catalog, a thorough overhaul. Remaster the tracks using the best available technology. Upgrade the artwork and packaging elements. Flesh out the discs with bonus tracks if it's deemed appropriate. And yes, by all means, do a follow-up compilation (Decade 2?) of Neil's '80s and '90s output.
