NEIL YOUNG Released Masterpiece ‘HARVEST’ 50 Years Ago Today

14 February 2022

Artist: NEIL YOUNG
Anniversary album: HARVEST his 4th LP
Released: 14 February 1972 – 50 years ago today
Charts: #1 in the UK and the USA and
in most European countries.

AllMusic/William Ruhlmann wrote: “Neil Young’s most popular album, Harvest benefited from the delay in its release (it took 18 months to complete due to Young’s back injury), which whetted his audience’s appetite, the disintegration of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (Young’s three erstwhile partners sang on the album, along with Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor), and most of all, a hit single. “Heart of Gold,” released a month before Harvest, was already in the Top 40 when the LP hit the stores, and it soon topped the charts. It’s fair to say, too, that Young simply was all-pervasive by this time: “Heart of Gold” was succeeded at number one by “A Horse with No Name” by America, which was a Young soundalike record.” Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Without a shadow of a doubt one of
Young‘s outstanding, most commercial, and most famous works.

Singles: Heart Of Gold / Old Man

As you probably know Young removed his music from Spotify. “I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them. Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.”
