20 June 2020

Artist: Neil Young
Album: Tonight’s The Night – sixth LP
Dedicated to Danny Whitten, guitarist of Crazy Horse,
who wrote the song ‘I Don’t Want To Talk About It’ made
famous by Rod Stewart
Released: 20 June 1975 – 45 years ago today
Score: #25 in the US

Rolling Stone wrote: “Tonight’s the Night finds Neil Young on his knees at the top of the heap, struggling to get back to his feet. The musical difficulties of last year’s On the Beach have been resolved as directly as possible by a return to recording with Crazy Horse and Nils Lofgren, with whom Young recorded his 1970 masterpiece, After the Gold Rush… Crying over the death of his real and imagined friends, Neil Young seems at once heroic and mock heroic, brave and absurd. Like the best of both, he leaves us as he found us, ravaged but rocking.”

Key phrase: Neil Young’s darkest masterpiece ever (with ‘On The Beach‘ at #2)
Key tracks: Tonight’s The Night / World On A String / Come On Baby Let’s Go Down Town /
Albuquerque / New Mama / Lookout Joe / Tired Eyes
