Product description

Product Description

Four studio albums of rock icon Neil Young have never been released on CD, even though each was a Top 30 hit, two of them gold certified. Now American Stars 'N Bars, On The Beach, Hawks & Doves and re*ac*tor not only finally make their digitally remastered CD debuts, but return to the shelves in any format for the first time in many years. As one of music's most influential and enduring singer-songwriters continues to record and tour, all of his albums are now on CD.

Amazon.ca

Sparse, underproduced, and at times downright dour, On the Beach was Neil Young's first studio album after Harvest had transformed him into a mainstream superstar two years before. It was a career move akin to "pissin' in the wind," as the artist himself describes life on one of the album's most famous lines. Young had already recorded the harrowing Tonight's the Night, his indictment of '60s drug culture and the damage done, but his label rejected it as too abrasive. So the artist gave them this instead. Less mournful but still haunting, the album is basically Young's rejection of rock stardom and what had become of the counterculture, covering a range of subjects, including Richard Nixon and Patty Hearst (the epic "Ambulance Blues"), his affair with actress Carrie Snodgrass ("Motion Pictures"), and, most famously, years before it became "chic" to do so, Charles Manson (the rocking "Revolution Blues"). "Vampire Blues," meanwhile, seemed to be about all those topics, as well as Young himself. Full of despair and little hope, On the Beach would nevertheless eventually come to be reappraised as a rock culture masterpiece. --Bill Holdship
