5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for any Neil Young fan!, June 19, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Neil Young: Long May You Run: The Illustrated History (Hardcover)
Long May You Run is, quite simply, a must-have for any Neil Young fan. Authors Daniel Durchholz and Gary Graff have done a magnificent job of chronicling Mr. Young's career, and the format of this book is very accessible and visually stunning.

The main section of the book consists of eight chapters that cover specific periods of Young's career (for example, "The Gold Rush, 1968-1972"). The material here is truly a delight, whether you sit down and read the chapters in order or just pick up the book and enjoy pages at random. The photos--many of them rare--are breathtaking, and the shots of concert posters, tickets, memorabilia, and "all things Neil Young" are lots of fun to look at. Also very enjoyable are the many feature essays within the chapters ("Train of Love: Travels on the Lionel Line," "Cowgirls in the Sand: Neil Young's Female Collaborators," and "Aerosmith's Joe Perry on Neil Young," to name just a few).

Following the eight main chapters, you get a wealth of additional information. First off is a comprehensive four-part discography, which includes Young's work as a band member or solo artist; singles; work as a guest artist; and tribute albums. Then comes a selected filmography, a terrific guide to Neil's primary sidemen, and a list of resources. Great stuff, for sure.

The icing on the cake, though, is the incredible presentation of everything. Voyageur Press gets an A++ for their beautiful, aesthetically pleasing design. Every page of this book is like a work of art, making it a tome you'll want to leave out on your coffee table for everyone to enjoy. Kudos to Durchholz, Graff, and Voyageur Press for a job well done! If you're a Neil Young fan, you must have this book!
