Product Description


Proclaiming his intentions with "Are You Ready for the Country?" Young detoured briefly to the Nashville mainstream. On this No. 1 1972 album, even the singer's acquired-taste voice comes across smooth and beautiful--the smash "Heart of Gold," with steel guitars and Linda Ronstadt's backup vocals, is by far Young's most commercial-sounding song. His usual dissonant touches, like the otherworldly guitar in "Out on the Weekend," are less spooky in this new context. The last two tracks, the deceptively gentle "The Needle and the Damage Done" and the hypnotic rocker "Words (Between the Lines of Age)," predict "Tonight's the Night," Young's haunted 1975 classic. --Steve Knopper

Producer Daniel Lanois speaks about the making of "Le Noise"


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

It is one of his best albums ever.
Prayer Warrior
With it's haunting melody, the London Symphony Orchestra accompaniment, and Young's fragile voice, the song allows you to empathize with it's character's uncertainty.
ol' nuff n' den sum
A good album, with only one song being bad.

Format: Audio CD
Neil Young's "Harvest" is more than just a musical statement. It captures the slowdown period of music at the beginning of the seventies. Popular music has always been a reflection of popular culture, and this album is no exception. This is probably why it is his most commercial as well. The songs boasted on this album are also some of his best. Everyone knows the hit single "Heart of Gold," but "Old Man" "Harvest," and "Alabama" are all Neil Young at his laid-back peak. The album is laced with the same spacey guitars that highlight Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of The Moon," though I think there is more variability in the songs on this album. For a portrait of society in between the crazy, idealistic sixties, and the decadent disco days yet to come, get this album. It's Neil's best album overall, and an excellent introduction to the rest of his work.

Format: DVD Audio Verified Purchase
I hadn't listened to this album in years. Come to find out I had never quite HEARD it until this DVD Audio came along--WOW!!! The packaging is instantly familiar to anyone who owned the original LP, right down to the enclosed lyric sheet in the double-fold cardboard sleeve. Harvest is without a doubt Neil's most commercially successful album and a great choice for this new cutting edge music format. FYI, this DVD also contains a DTS track as well as a DD 5.1 mix, for those who haven't yet made the jump to DVD-Audio... Certainly worth the price in itself.
Pop it in, sit back in your easy chair, close your eyes and the room fills with Neil's sweet voice, the gentle plucking of guitar strings, the wailing harmonica. It feels like you are literally sitting in the studio with Neil and the boys...Lyrics, credits and a photo gallery are included for each song on video. Every song is a winner here, I can't even pick my favorite at this point. Other than Heart of Gold is the song I go back to the least, only because of my over-familiarity with it. But it's still a great song (duh).
On the technical side I did notice in the surround mix Neil's voice is positioned in the surround channels (rear) in a few songs, which took some getting used to. But I think it's more conditioning because when I closed my eyes the "3-D" effect took over and it was no problemo. Also had no problem with bass management as someone else had mentioned about the Advanced Resolution DVD-Audio mix... This is a great, classic album given new life in the DVD-Audio/DTS format.

What is this album about?
Harvest seeds are; get back to the land, are you ready for the country and western (California sound), go your own way, acoustic setting and natural songs, a man needs a maid, father and farther love, say no to drugs, hippie freedom, harvest 'words' (and end times of the 60's) and all of the above.

180gram vinyl
So was anyone's LP 180g vinyl? I ordered my copy from Amazon and it arrived today. Something is fishy, here. The LP is really thin like an old-style LP, and it came in a cheap thin paper sleeve with a hole in the middle. There was a gold sticker on the shrink wrap that is exactly like the... Read More
