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

Product Description

YOUNG NEIL HARVEST

Amazon.com

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

This is where Neil Young's lyrics began to lose some of their contrived weirdness and really hit home.
"I wanna live, I wanna give...it's these expressions I never give that keep me searching for a heart of gold. And I'm getting old."
That pretty much sums up a point a lot of us get to in our late 20s/early 30s, doesn't it?
So much of this album is about reaching that point where a decision must be made between good or bad, up or down, right or wrong. Much has been made of "Are You Ready For The Country?" and Young's turn away from Rock to Country music. To me, that is just one of the decisions Young struggles with on HARVEST, and a minor decision at that. He is fighting over his solo-mountain-man image and living a more social life in a band; trying to decide if traditional southern thinking makes any sense or if a full-blown step into 20th century civil rights philosophy is viable ("The devil fools with the best laid plans" in "Alabama"), and argues against the worst case results of 1960s drug culture.
This is an album about reaching breaking points, about deciding which way to go at lifes crossroads.
Or, as Young hinted at with the the albums title, it is about reaping what you've sown when it's time for the HARVEST.

Super old Neil Young album. Neil Young does not always have a great voice, but in this album his words and music make this an older album worth having.

After reading Waging Heavy Peace (Neil Young's autobiography) I began to buy some more CD's by him as well as him and Crazy Horse. Neil Young (NY) is one amazing artist. Harvest is, I believe, NY's breakthrough release. I would recommend this album to anyone especially anyone who grew up during the Vietnam war era scene.

I have the album on vinyl, and this CD takes me right back to the 70s, when I was a free-spirited young woman. Ah, the memories that music evokes!

Well worth it, been wanting this album for quite some time. All the songs on it are very good examples of his talent.

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
