Product Description

Amazon.com

Neil Young's songs from this ill-fated collaboration are widely regarded as toss-offs, but the disc does contain three or four swell Young tunes. The title track is among his finest work from the mid-'70s, with its generous pop hook wrapped in shambling rhythms, laconic pace, nostalgic subject matter, and subtle, country-fried accents. The slow, powerful "Fountainebleau"--a story of rock-star hotel decadence--is "Powderfinger"-ish with some of Young's most nimble-fingered fretwork ever, and his vocals on "Midnight on the Bay" are stunningly on key. Unfortunately, Stephen Stills's musical muse was more than burnt out by the time this record was made, and "Guardian Angel" sounds like the cast of Godspell on a very off day. "Make Love to You," with its faux-soul keyboard runs, Stills's dying-moose moans, and the insanely cheesy "Hey baby, I just wanta make love to you"-type lyrics, sounds so ridiculous one half-expects Chef from South Park to jump out from behind the speakers, crooning into his spoon to an imaginary sexy lady. This album went gold, but luckily "The Stills-Young Band" was never heard from again after this messy, one-sided affair. --Mike McGonigal

Anyone who enjoys solo albums by either Neil Young or Stephen Stills will love the songs here.

From reading the reviews here one would think we're looking at a release by Stephen Hatfield and Neil McCoy. I suppose it's not surprising that Stephen and Neil's on and off-again relationship, their head-butting over who would get to play lead guitar, and the tension that would eventually dissolve the tour supporting this album would spill over into the reviews. It's too bad that those circumstances influence people's perceptions of the music though, because this is a thoroughly enjoyable album. As a fan of both artist's work, I find these tracks to be highly representative of everything else they were producing around this time... certainly not their best compositions or their most inspired recordings, but worthy additions to their catalogs.
I count myself fortunate to have been seated in the pavilion of the Pine Knob Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan in June, 1976 when the Stills-Young Band kicked off their tour, even if the sound turned out to be rather muddled and the two stars weren't frequently on stage together. While most of the setlist was dedicated to past hits, the evening did produce three of the finer selections from this CD: Still's staple from this tour, 'Make Love To You'; a song Neil first began performing with Crazy Horse while on tour in Japan earlier in the same year, 'Let It Shine'; and the title song, 'Long May You Run', which Neil first began performing in 1974. Only two other songs from the album, Neil's 'Midnight On the Bay' and 'Ocean Girl' would be offered on the truncated (17 concert) tour.
This collection boasts one classic tune, the title track, which rivals any of Young's best compositions.

So what if it's "not either one's best work"... it's good stuff. The music is easy to listen to, and it has something to say, and best of all, they are singing, not yelling or talking. It's the way music is supposed to be experienced... turn it on, kick back, and let it transport you to somewhere sweet. It's 70's rock, and there's nothing wrong with that.

This CD is one of the BEST CD's in the 70's If you like Neil Young, Steven Stills, You'll love this CD! There is not one bad song here. My Personal Favorites are the Title Track, Make Love To You, Ocean Girl, Midnight On the Bay, Fountainblue. I origionally had this on 8 Track when I was in High School and got sad when my 8 Track Player ate the tape!
Thank God this is now on CD!!!!

I have lived with this release for close to 30 years and there are two things wrong with this release. The first is that their other two associates(Crosby,Nash), were just wrapping up their masterpeice 5 star release "Wind on the Water", as it suffers by comparison. The second is that both Crosby and Nash contributed their vocals to this project and the two principles had the bad sense to wipe those vocals prior to release.

All the negative reviews initially with the press were due to expectations that were looking for a CSNY album. or worse a return of the Springfield. Please!!!

When evaluated on it's own merits this is a damn good record. True Stills was writing mostly lame material at this time but I think that this material is his strongest and most soulful stuff since the first Manassas album. The people who are saying that Neil's stuff is so much stronger on this project are full of it. "12/8 Blues" and "Black Coral" are very solid songs and Neil's very presence pushes Stills to try harder. Proof of this is that his songwriting went right down the dumper again after this and the "CSN" reunion record. If "Midnight on the Bay" is a throw-away it is one of the best all-time leftovers and it has one of Neil's best lead vocals ever. I dock it a star for not having those guitar duels although some dope faded out the album as the sparks were about to fly on "Guardian Angel" another good Stills song.

We may have wanted more of it but to say there is no collaboration is just not true. Stills gives us a beautiful solo on Neil's "Midnight..." Neil can be easily heard on Stills'"Make Love..." and these guys always sound good singing together. The band was also perfect for this project. Great keyboards add to the soulful/summery/jazzy feel of the record.

So it's the mid-1970s, and because of their infernal and internal and eternal bickering, the chances of a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young reunion have collapsed again. What to do? Put Neil Young and Stephen Stills in a studio, with some of the best session musicians in the business, and even though David Crosby and Graham Nash aren't in the mix, you figure something good just might come out of this.

And something did: The title track of the 1976 album, "Long May You Run." The song itself is incredible -- a jaunty melody, just the right touch of nostalgia, a beautiful chorus of backing vocals on the break. It's hard to believe, but true, that Young wrote the song about the loss of his Buick hearse, which he had nicknamed "Mort."'

The whole premise of it is silly, really, but the song is vague enough it could be about relationships going bad (or well) Whether you "got" the lyrics or not, it was a powerfully effective, heartfelt song.

Too bad the rest of the album is so forgettable.

Oh, I suppose Young's "Midnight on the Bay" is pleasant enough, and his "Ocean Girl" works because of some lush backing vocals that recall CSNY at their best. And although they're certainly not credited, it sure sounds to me that Young is backed by his own band, Crazy Horse. Whether or not it's them, the song displays the kind of fundamental crunch they practically invented.

What to say about Stephen Stills' contributions to this album. Well, "Make Love to You" is sexist and stupid -- and it was sexist and stupid back in 1976, too. Stills ruins "Black Coral" by producing the living daylights out of what was supposed to be a mysterious journey. And the closing track, Stills' "Guardian Angel"? So annoying that my wife asked me to just go ahead and turn it off.
