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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Good Stuff June 9, 2000
By M G M
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Their Best September 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Considering the pedigree of the two principals, Long May You Run was a bit of a disappointment, but that shouldn't have been surprising to anyone who followed their careers. Neil Young always saved his best songs for his solo career, and by the time this record came out, Stephen Stills seems to have lost his muse. Still all is not lost. The title track is a gorgeous pop song that didn't get nearly the airplay it deserved and Fountainebleau is an underrated song that contains some scorching lyrics and some very nice guitar work. Not for the casual fan, but if you like Neil Young, it will make a nice addition to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my Favorite Classic Rock CD's May 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
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!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT A FIRST LISTEN WINNER, BUT A GROWER. February 22, 2006
Format:Audio 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A keeper for all Neil fans. November 29, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is very representative of the mid 70's mucic that Neil was doing. If you are a Neil collector, you need this album! The song titles Long May You Run and Fontainebleau are my favorite cuts.
