Harvest, by Neil Young, which still stands as one of America’s great classic folky rock/electric country albums, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.
Subtle in its masterstrokes, Harvest finds Neil Young a bit more subdued in a positive sense, sort of a musical detoxing from the CSNY supernova and his reverbed up energetic prior releases such as Everyone Knows This Is Nowhere. By 1972 and Harvest, Young had become a cult figure put on the influential pedestal like a Bob Dylan or a John Lennon, and like those two aforementioned artists, Neil Young also had a rite of passage by way of his sheer, stark creativity and originality. He truly is and remains one of a kind, and the great music on Harvest just solidifies the obvious of Young’s mammoth talents.
The well known and beloved songs like “Old Man” and “Heart of Gold” perfectly intermingle with the full production values of “There’s A World,” the strains of “A Man Needs A Maid” and the punctuating in style, tone, and subject, “The Needle and the Damage Done.” With guest friends like Crosby, Stills and Nash and Linda Ronstadt on background vocals, and James Taylor on banjo and also on backing vocals, and produced by Young (with others), Harvest has just the right mix of Young’s signature sound and style, mingling with the contemporary sounds of the times, yet remaining timeless.
