Product Description

Product Description

Enter the Horse! Crazy Horse, that is, who backed Neil on his second solo album, which yielded such all-time classics as Cinnamon Girl; Down by the River , and Cowgirl in the Sand .


Opening with the methodical, hard-rocking "Cinnamon Girl"--still one of the singer/songwriter's most-shouted requests in concert--Young's second solo album introduces the cockeyed harmonies and sloppy, chiming guitars of Crazy Horse. His wide swings from soft-spoken country-folk ("Round & Round [It Won't Be Long]") to menacing metal (the punch line to "Down by the River" is "I shot my baby") indicate the multiple personalities in Young's future. His second album of 1969 broadcasts a sincere passion for the peace-and-love '60s (dig the long guitar solos) but also predicts the dark introspection of "Tonight's the Night". --Steve Knopper --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Ever wonder why people dig Neil? This is it! Required listening for any serious student of folk rock music. Visceral, raw, folk rock anthems like Cinnamon Girl, Down By the River, Everybody Knows This Nowhere, and Cowgirl In The Sand. Signature Neil; energy, emotion, lyrics, and guitar. Only thing missing on this album is my favorite Neil song...Like A Hurricane.
I like to say I have at least 20 "favorite albums of all time" BUT, if pressed to choose just one, this is it. If you are a guitar hack like me, throw it on, and play along. Who doesn't want to play the riff from Cinnamon Girl or play a 30 minute lead for Down By The River while a buddy plays the simple but very cool chord progression. Neil still has it, too bad guys like Clapton have long ago lost it.
Anybody who likes; Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt, Steve Earle, John Hiatt, The Jayhawks, EARLY Wilco, Lucinda Williams, Giant Sand, Counting Crows, and any other comtempory folk rock band, better own this album...today.

For all intents and purposes, "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" is probably the first 'Grunge Rock' album. Released in 1969, there would likely be no Nirvana, Pearl Jam, etc, if not for this record. All the grunge ingredients are here: sickly tuned distorted guitars, shaky singing, repetitive, minimalistic (yet incisive) lyrics, and music that can beat the same three chord rhythm to death for ten minutes ("Down By The River", "Cowgirl In The Sand".) Yet the album has its hooks as well, namely "Cinnamon Girl" and "Round And Round", the outcast among the tracks with its ringing acoustic guitars and beautiful harmonies. Of course, a lot of the credit goes to Young's backup band, the aptly-named Crazy Horse: musicians who can beat a riff into the ground for hours, barely staying together within the song, yet is never boring (in my opinion Neil Young has made his best records with the Horse.) This is, of course, the only complete album with the original Crazy Horse lineup (Young sacked them halfway through "After The Goldrush" because they were too stoned to play) and has been often imitated, yet never duplicated. Though "Everybody Knows" isn't quite quintessential Young (from an artist this versatile, it's hard to pin down any single album that is, though "Rust Never Sleeps" would get my vote, for it's mixture of acoustic and heavy), it is indeed the album that launched a million garage bands, whether they know it or not.

I love many othe Neil Young albums ...... but not like this one, the classic of classics.
It is sooooo "rusty" and "raw" emotionally and musically and so "pure" from the heart.
The band is so tight, Neil;s voice on this still gives me goose bumps. The rawness that just cuts you up.
Cinnamon Girl - Opens up the album with those wonderous guitar. Tremendous power in them licks, from the gut. I can hear that song 1000 times in a row.
Then we have this country, folk stuff added with Cowgirl and Down By The River. Cowgirl my favorite and after years and years, never board of that long solo that kills with that unique power, passion and "roughness" of that solo tat is so interesting. So much emotional punch in that one.
This one must be up with those other albums that are the best of an era.
Yet, that sunofagun seems to be more appreciated now and more popular now than he was.
The Loosing end, that is about as good as Neil as ever Sounded.
It's so hard for me now
But I'll make it somehow,
Though I know I'll never be the same.
Won't you ever change your ways,
It's so hard to make love pay
When you're on the losing end,
And I feel that way again.
I love, love when the last part of the song when Neil get louder and end with a wonderful finishing "rough" country lick.
Round and Round, is to listen to late when camping in front of a fire. Those souful harmonies. Great words, great stuff.
There are not too many left of the great ledgends who are still out there creating. Everyone MUST here Alvin Lee in Tennesee and here the guitar master doing rockabilly with the guys that started it in Nashville. Best album of the year, so far.

I'm not a big fan of most classic rock (music released before the new wave era) but this was given to me from my beloved so I could hear the original version of "Cinnamon Girl", which was later redone by Goth-Rock legends Type O Negative, and I was shocked at how much I enjoyed the album as a whole. 'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere' is my first CD by Neil Young with Crazy Horse, whom I'm assuming are responsible for providing a slight bluegrass feel to some of the tunes, and I am very impressed. I admit, I'm not particularly wild about all of the songs but I do love the gentle ballad "Round & Round (It Won't Be Long)", the haunting cry of the violin on "Running Dry (Requiem For The Rockets)" (probably my favorite track), and "Cowgirl In The Sand", which centers its main focus on the guitar and drums rather than the voice, but without getting carried away. The intricacy of the melodies are fairly simple yet woven with a strong sense of depth and you can bet that I'll be checking out the rest of his works in the not-too-distant future. He sounds like an artist with a lot of talent just waiting for me to further explore. So yeah, I think this is a great place to start or to add to your growing Neil Young collection. And, for its time, the production isn't half bad either.
