Product Description

Product Description


Proclaiming his intentions with "Are You Ready for the Country?" Young detoured briefly to the Nashville mainstream. On this No. 1 1972 album, even the singer's acquired-taste voice comes across smooth and beautiful--the smash "Heart of Gold," with steel guitars and Linda Ronstadt's backup vocals, is by far Young's most commercial-sounding song. His usual dissonant touches, like the otherworldly guitar in "Out on the Weekend," are less spooky in this new context. The last two tracks, the deceptively gentle "The Needle and the Damage Done" and the hypnotic rocker "Words (Between the Lines of Age)," predict "Tonight's the Night," Young's haunted 1975 classic. --Steve Knopper

4.0 out of 5 stars a bounty April 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
'Harvest' is Neil Young's best selling album, and even Neil himself
has remarked that it "is probably the finest record I've made", and
"Harvest is one of my best songs...that's the best thing on 'Harvest".
The first quote is from a 1972 interview, which means Neil finds
the CD superior to both 'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere' and
'After the Goldrush', an assessment I would take exception with.
The second quote is from the 2002 biography 'Shakey', which means
Neil puts 'Harvest' in a class with compositions such as 'Country
Girl', 'Down By The River', and 'Mr. Soul'. I think I'd have a hard
time putting 'Harvest' in my Top-100 Neil Young songs. It's a good
number, but the competition is staggering.
Nonetheless, a look at the song titles from 'Harvest' reveals why
the album sold so well (though I doubt it would have done so without
the build-up provided by 'Everybody...', 'After the Goldrush', and
the first Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young disc, 'Deja vu'). The album
includes Neil's only number one hit, 'Heart of Gold', and a number
31 hit, 'Old Man'. More than ever Neil turns his attention to
relationship-based, country flavored selections (always a good sell)
such as 'Out On the Weekend'. He mixes in a couple heavier
rock-styled numbers toward the conclusion with 'Alabama' and
'Words', and even mixes in a couple orchestrated selections, the
"overblown" (Neil's description) 'There's a World' and 'A Man
Needs a Maid'. There is a satisfying mix in the lyrical content
between the intropective ('A Man Needs a Maid') and socially
relevant ('Alabama') selections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold Harvest April 5 2000
Format:Audio CD
Neil Young fans had to wait two years for the successor to AFTER THE GOLDRUSH.In between albums, moved out to the country,got divorced and found love again with actress Carrie Snodgrass,and injured his back severly while moving furniture. All these factors contributed in a mellow release entitled HARVEST;with pickup group The Stray Gators(plus guest artists like James Taylor and Linda Rondstat).HARVEST is a country tinged album,with a lot less to worry about than later releases.Neil broods on love(HARVEST,OUT ON THE WEEKEND,A MAN NEEDS A MAID,THERE'S A WORLD),racism (ALABAMA),and drug abuse(THE NEEDLE AND THE DAMAGE DONE).Two hits resulted from this album,HEART OF GOLD(which Young claims put him in the middle of the road,so he headed for a ditch)and OLD MAN. WORDS(BETWEEN THE LINES OF AGE)is a long jam session.ARE YOU READY FOR THE COUNTRY became a hit for Waylon Jennings.A few Young fans regard the album as two countrified and commercial;I think this is his best in his country period which includes COMES A TIME,HARVEST MOON and OLD WAYS. This was my first Neil Young album,and I'll probably have a copy of it on me somewhere when I go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Record June 22 2012
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
There is a 180g Vinyl edition of this record, it was too expensive for me so I ordered this one. Listening to it, with a pure warm sound, loud on my speakers, I felt I didn't need the 180g one, maybe that one will sound more powerful, this one has power enough for me to enjoy, pressed in Germany, beautifull vintage colour cover, I just sat and listened to it with my head right in the middle of the speakers' sound, I have the CD, I decided to sell it, don't need it, vinyl is how you should listen to great albums like this one, one of my favourites, every track will demand your concentration, buy it and play it.

5.0 out of 5 stars honestly One of the best albums I can think of April 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Man Needs a Maid" is in fact not a sexist song but like much of Neil's work, misunderstood and slightly obscure. It might be better to refrain from critiuqueing it till you are more familiar with this artist.
Neil was in severe back pain as I understand it, during the writing of this album. (I think this was around the time he met Carey Snodgrass) He spent a good deal of time in bed and although I could be wrong about this, this might explain both why he does not use an electric guitar much(back pain) and why I suspect the use of something like a drum machine in the writing (this is only speculation). The album is exelently heald together by a consistant and simple heavy drum section.
Young is also an epileptic (as am I ) there are lyrics in "man Needs a Maid like -"my life is changin in so many ways- dont know who to trust anymore" that mirror my felings about the alienation and fear epilepsy's changes can bring on. It is shortsighted to think this song is about manipulating women. One of its best versions (off Rock and Roll Cowboy) ends "a man feels afraid"
Niel young doesnt always want you to know what he's writing about and he sertianly does not give a damn if you happen to know ( or misinturpret for that matter). There is however a common thread of humanity losely defined and aplicable to all our lives in almost all of his songs.
If you get to short sighted about interpreting a song like "Man needs a Maid" you lose out on something.
For those that boil things down to whether or not statements fall into a feminist or anti feminist catigory I feel sorry for you I can only think that real artists could care less and are more conserned with writing the truth of how they feel - sometimes a man does feel this way

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Old Album
This record was recorded and mastered very well. It has that goosebump kind of sound full and dynamic. I reccomend this highly. Vinyl very quiet almost black.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laid Back Country Rock
This album reminds me of a southern fried version of Syd Barrett's Madcap Laughs. The songs bounce lazily along taking time and reflecting on life and the past and what is to come. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece... except the orchestra
This album would definitely be one of top five albums of all-time and be flawless... but there is one flaw. The orchestra playing in two of the songs. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad, but a couple of musical missteps
HARVEST is considered on of Young's best albums. This is only the third album I've purchased of his, so I am not qualified to agree or disagree with that statement. Read more
