Product Description

Product Description

Limited Edition


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

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.

'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.

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.

This was the first album I ever bought. It was on vinyl. At the time I bought it, I had this cheap turntable to play it on (which had 45 and 78 settings). To me, it didn't matter what I played it on, the music was/is outstanding. The country/folk/rock arrangments of Neil Young are wonderful. I understand that Neil had considerable back pain during the recording of Harvest. I believe that people tend to be more creative when they are in pain. Just a theory; something to think about.
1. Out on the Weekend: Great Lyrics and a great beat.
2. Harvest: great, Great, GREAT! The title song has that country twang to it. "Dream up, dream up, let me fill your cup, with the promise of a man..."
3. Man Needs a Maid: I like Neil's emotional singing and the strings are fantastic.
4. Heart of Gold: The big radio hit. Great harp.
5. Are you Ready for the Country: I really, really like the slide guitar in this song.
6. Old Man: Another country/rock hit. "Old man take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you were". The lyrics remind me of the "Cats in the Cradle" song by Harry Chapin. Although, I like Neil's song a whole lot better.
7. There's a World: Another song with those strings by The London Symphony Orchestra. Good singing my Neil again.
8. Alabama: "You've good the rest of the Union to help you along, what's going wrong." This prompted Lynyrd Skynyrd to reply with their song "Sweet Home Alabama": "Well I heard Mr. Young sing about her, I heard ole Neil put her down. Well, I hope Neil Young will remember, said don't need that man around anyhow." A controversial song.
9. Needle and the Damage Done [Live]: A song about the despair of taking drugs.
10. Word's (Between the Lines of Age): Great Lyrics and even better music. My favorite song on the LP.
I wish I could give this LP 10 stars. The is a very classic album by Neil Young.
