5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Top Ten Albums Of All Time... 15 April 2010
By Og Oggilby VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After a misfiring self-titled solo debut album, Neil Young recruited the remnants of The Rockets, who were renamed Crazy Horse in the process, and delivered this, 'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere', and his career as a soloist really kicked into gear. 'Everybody Knows' is a terrific album, and set the blueprint for at least the guitar-heavy side of his future solo recordings. This newly-remastered version corrects the sonic anomalies of the original CD reissue, and has never sounded better. The bottom end is full and dynamic, and the guitar interplay between Young and Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten (RIP) is beautifully realised. Apart from the lengthy guitar excursions, 'Cowgirl In The Sand' and 'Down By The River', shorter songs such as 'Cinnamon Girl', the title track, and the delightful country lope-along '(When You're On) The Losing End' show that Young was also capable of writing economical, concise and very direct songs, and, what's more, had found the perfect backing combo to help realise them.

This is an utterly wonderful album that delivers every time. Don't have it yet? You gotta get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars "...It's So Hard To Say No To Yourself..." 16 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
As we all know, Neil Young has famously resisted the remastered reissue of his huge catalogue on CD because of what he feels is the format's less than stellar representation of analogue tapes' 'original sound' as laid down by the artist - and almost a full 20 years after 1989's first issue of his 2nd album on a dullard CD - it looks like the guy is having the last laugh - because this meticulously prepared tape transfer is GLORIOUS. It really is. I've bought all 4 and to my ears this is fact the best sounding of them all.

First to the details - "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" was released in May 1969 on Reprise Records RS 6349 in the USA and RSLP 6349 in the UK (July 1969). This 2009 NYA OSR remaster (Neil Young Archives - Original Release Series) is Disc 2 of 4 and carries the HDCD code on the label and rear inlay (High Density Compact Disc).

Until now, 2004's "Greatest Hits" set (which offered us three "Everybody..." tracks remastered into HDCD sound quality) was the only real indication of just how good the album 'could' sound (this is the first time the 'entire' album has been given a sonic upgrade). The Audio Tape Restoration and Analog-To-HDCD Digital Transfer of the Original Master Tapes was carried out by JOHN NOWLAND (24-Bit 176 KHZ) with the Editing and Mastering done by TIM MULLIGAN - and they've done a stunning job.

The inlay reproduces photos of Danny Whitten (Guitar), Billy Talbot (Bass) with Ralph Molina (on Drums) and David Briggs (Engineer and Producer), but there's no lyrics. Also - as these are the first four albums in a long reissue campaign - to identify them from the old CDs, the upper part of the outer spine has his new NYA OSR logo at the top and an 'issue' number beneath - D1, D2, D3, D4...on upwards of course.

4.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Neil Young album 10 Sep 2004
By A. Macfarlane VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is very good. Its got well recognized Young classics: Cinnamon Girl anyone with a passing knowledge of Young will have heard, but also Down By The River and Cowgirl In The Sand - both epic tracks. The reason this only gets 4 starts though is Round and Round - which has always sounded a bit dreary and somewhat repetative. Maybe its just a personal taste think. Otherwise I'd say to anyone who hasn't heard Young "buy this CD and you'll be hooked".

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Neil Young's second solo album begins with "Cinnamon Girl," one of his rare hit singles, but what puts this 1969 album in "Gotta Have" status were the monster tracks that ended each "side" of the record, "Down by the River" (9:13) and "Cowgirl in the Sand" (10:30). It is totally appropriate that Young wrote all three songs in a single afternoon. In the wake of Buffalo Springfield's breakup, Young had recorded his first solo album, which suffered from being overdubbed. But then Young started jamming with a L.A. band called the Rockets, which was then re-dubbed Crazy Horse: guitarist Danny Whitten, bassist Billy Talbot, drummer Ralph Molina.
The result was a raw, energized sound, where sound pretty was never a major concern, proven by the opening ten-note guitar riff than starts "Cinnamon Girl." Some have made the case that their harsh, metallic sound was so elemental that it qualifies as being proto-punk (the Stooges's first album also came out in 1969), although I have always been reminded of jazz stylings with the way the music is stripped down. Young's mournfully high voice contrasts with the primal guitar duets he wages with Whitten on the two epics, but under-girding it all is an innate sense of harmony (ultimately proven by the Indigo Girl's cover of "Down by the River" on their "1200 Nights Album"). "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" is one of those albums made for listening to in the dark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Neil 14 July 2002
By Callie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an album full of raw energy,a far cry from Neil's debut album which was poor compared to this.The two longest tracks"Down by the river" and "Cowgirl in the sand" are guitar workouts, Danny Whitten really holds these songs together with his brilliant rhythm guitar, the rest of the band follow his tempo.The album opens with the classic "Cinnamon girl"followed by the biting title track.My two favourite tracks are"Round and Round" with Neil and Danny on acoustic guitars and Robin Lane on harmony vocals,the track is so intimate you can hear Whitten and Young rocking back and forth on their chairs.The other stand out track for me is "Running Dry" a song about lost love,but what adds to the sorrow is the beautiful violin playing by Bobby Notkoff,this track really is haunting, Notkoff was a member of the Rockets,who are now Crazy Horse,it would have been interesting if Notkoff had joined "The horse"! The track I haven't mentioned yet is the laid back country number "The losing end" which becomes more urgent during the guitar solo in the middle of the song.I think this album was done live in the studio,with no overdubs.This is my favourite album,along with "Tonight's the Night" God bless you,Danny!
