Old times are good times!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tonight's The Night (Audio CD)
I was at a Neil Young gig in Bristol early seventies when he played this album in its entirity. The album had not even been released and Neil was coming off the back of big success with Harvest and After the Gold Rush and the whole CSNY thing.
The gig was so different to what was expected, gone was the sensitive mellow country singer looking for his heart of gold. This was rough and raw, dark sunglasses and leather. He got a lot of booing that night and if I recall his record company complained about the sub standard nature of the material on the album.
Having just bought this album again, it is an absolute classic and has some of his most memorable tracks and lyrics.
Not an album for people new to Mr Young, try one of his greatest hits compilations, but once you are into him get into this. I am playing it again some 40 years on and it is outstanding material.
