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

His self-titled 1968 self-titled solo album, following his exit from Buffalo Springfield, bridged what was and what would be. Though his only album not to chart-'The Loner'- its most memorable track-Neil Young marked the launching point of an illustrious solo career.

Actually, one of the greatest albums.
lingcod9
Neil has ventured into so many disparate genres that it is hard to keep track of his many contributions to music, even for those with the most eclectic of tastes.
Clifford Teapes
The whole album flows together into a cohesive whole and all the songs are excellent.

This is a terrific album, and now that it's been newly remastered in pristine HDCD sound, I hope that it will be rediscovered by legions of Neil Young fans who may have overlooked it as one of Neil' as earlier efforts. In style, it's transitional between the rhapsodic, if slightly spacey, Neil Young who appeared in Buffalo Springfield classics like Broken Arrow and "On the Way Home" (written by Young, but sung masterfully on Buffalo Springfield's final album by Richie Fury), and the rockin' in the free world Neil who would emerge in glorious full plumage with his next album, the timeless "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" in which he teamed with Crazy Horse. In his later solo efforts as well as his inspired collaborations with Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Young would go on to display a kind of mastery of taut, rock rhythm and soulful melody that hadn't quite gelled at the time he laid the tracks for this album, but which still can be seen just below the surface and some of the more accomplished tracks, such as "What Did You Do to My Life," "I've Been Waiting for You," and others. Still, this inaugural release was a wholly individualistic and inspired effort, which laid the path for Young's later individuality and iconoclastic career as a rock star who challenged so many of the boundaries and conventions of the genre.

The history of the mixing and mastering of this album is quite unusual. The first LP release was quickly withdrawn from circulation by Young, because he didn't like the sound quality, and he was right. I have the original Neil Young LP, and the sound was muddy and thin.

After a few years of coming and going with Buffalo Springfield, the "first American supergroup," Neil Young parted ways for good in 1967 with his band. In 1968, with Crazy Horse pianist Jack Nietsche arrangement, Young's self-titled debut was unleashed. Out of all his following albums, "Neil Young" is the most cohesive, mainly because Nietsche helped keep the budding artist on track. It probably has more overdubs than anything that Young did with the Springfield, and certainly everything since Granpa Crispy struck out on his own. The album starts off, ironically, with one of Nietsche's own compositions, "The Emperor of Wyoming," a nice, pleasant country instrumental. "The Loner" follows, and now we are clearly in Neil's world of angst and paranoia. "The Old Laughing Lady" is a great track, with female background vocals reminiscent of anything done for Motown, despite the fact the song is clearly not a Motown product. Besides the aforementioned, Neil's other songs of longing, like "If I Could Have Her Tonight" and "What Did You Do to My Life," make this a thrilling ride. The final track, "The Last Trip to Tulsa," is Young accompanied only by his acoustic guitar. The track is about nine minutes long, with the most arcane, non-sensical lyrics I have ever heard. The crazier the song become lyrically, the harder Young strums his guitar, until you think the strings will crack under the strain. With Nietsche's brilliant arranging, "Neil Young" is a fine start to a long, storied career.

Neil was at the height of his powers when he wrote the songs on this CD. There are no klunkers here, every song has a strong melody and intriguing lyrics.

I find this album compares favorably with the more famous Beach Boys or Beatles albums that came out at the same time. Like the Beach Boys and the Beatles, the rich melodies are the primary appeal of the album. Every song is good, though they are almost all sad, with lots of sweet, heartfelt chords and notes.

The production of this album is a source of frequent comment. In my opinion, the CD is better mixed than the original vinyl. I'll have to confess however, that when I was listening to this album as a teenager, I had a poor stereo. It may simply be that the great sonic equipment we can buy now does justice to an album that couldn't be heard properly on a cheap stereo. Certainly it seems to me that Neil's voice is louder in this mix than the way I remember it from my youth. Also the songs seem to have more of an edge to them, so that the rockers come out with a bit more punch. Some of the instruments seem to stand out more clearly now.

The melodies from this album are so strong that I would compare it favorably against many other good records from any point in rock history. However, you have to understand that this is Neil Young, and the album is moody, a bit introverted, even quite dark at times. But I listen to it for the lush production, the warm bittersweet chords, and the beautiful melodies. Plus, I like Neil's youthful melancholy. It rings true to me.
