Artist: Neil Young
Album: After The Gold Rush – his third LP
Released: 31 August 1970 – 50 years ago today
AllMusic wrote: “After the Gold Rush was recorded with the aid of Nils Lofgren, a 17-year-old unknown whose piano was a major instrument… Much of After the Gold Rush consisted of country-folk love songs, which consolidated the audience Young had earned through his tours and recordings with CSNY; its dark yet hopeful tone matched the tenor of the times in 1970, making it one of the definitive singer/songwriter albums, and it has remained among Young’s major achievements.” Score: 5/5.
Singles: Only Love Can Break Your Heart / When You Dance, I Can Really Love

Here’s the interview she gave…
