Rocker in the free world NEIL YOUNG released his 19th LP HARVEST MOON
30 years ago today. He recorded it with musicians who also played on his
1972 masterpiece Harvest (Young named them The Stray Gators).
Rolling Stone wrote: “The title echoes Harvest, Young’s countryish album of two
decades ago, and the music recalls its gentle flavor. Harvest was a mellow bestseller,
an uncharacteristic middle-of-the-road pit stop in a decade of deeply personal and
sometimes highly eccentric releases, and Harvest Moon also sounds as if it was made
for lazy hammock-swinging afternoons. But beneath its placid surface are the craggy
scars of middle age, when holding onto and cherishing love is a lot more difficult than
finding it.” Score: 4/5.
