Format: Audio CD
I'm sure many people waited eagerly for this release and I was certainly one of them. The fear was that it would be a huge disappointment after Goldrush - well it wasn't. Harvest has taken on almost a mythical feel over the years.

Many consider it his best work and certainly it met with critical acclaim and is still talked of today. When Young releases a low key, tuneful album it is always described as "The New Harvest" and the composer also references the album many times in his subsequent offerings.

It was more progressive than Goldrush. To me the songs aren't quite so effective but there is no denying the power and beauty of an album that once again contained some outstanding music with the likes of "Harvest", "A Man Needs a Maid" "Heart of Gold" (I can hear you singing it now and two songs with much stronger messages "Old Man" and a foray into drug culture "The Needle and the Damage Done."

The only question on the lips of Young fans were "where does he go from here and can he produce a trio of essential albums?"

“Harvest” – Neil Young

This is perhaps Neil Young’s best known album and followed on from ‘After the Goldrush’. Surprisingly, in 1972 it met with a luke-warm reception - when it was labelled as too retrospective rather than progression. However, since then it has received much praise and made it into a number of ‘best album’ lists.

It features the London Symphony Orchestra on 2 tracks and vocals from various guests including David Crosby, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt! It dates from 1972 and was digitally re-mastered in 2002. 2 of the tracks were subsequently released as singles – “Old Man” and “Heart of Gold” which made #31 and #1 respectively in the Billboard Top 100 in the USA.

A number of the songs feature in my playlists. In particular I would mention “Alabama” which again tackles racism in the southern US and “The Needle and the Damage Done” which laments the death of musicians due to heroin addiction – the one ‘live’ track on the album.
Personally, I think it a fine album that fully merits its place in my music library. The good news is that Amazon Prime members can stream and listen to the album for free!

The Tracks:
• "Out on the Weekend"
• "Harvest"
• "A Man Needs a Maid"
• "Heart of Gold"
• "Are You Ready for the Country?"
• "Old Man"
• "There's a World"
• "Alabama"
• "The Needle and the Damage Done" (recorded in concert January 30, 1971)
• "Words (Between the Lines of Age)"

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 formats less than stellar representation of analogue tapes' 'original sound'. And almost a full 20 years after 1989's first issue of Harvest 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.

First to the details - this June 2009 Remaster is Disc 4 of 4 in his NYA – ORS Reissue Series (Neil Young Archives - Original Release Series). "Harvest" by NEIL YOUNG on Reprise 9362-49789-9 (Barcode 093624978992) is a straightforward CD Reissue of the original 1971 album on Reprise Records and carries the HDCD code on the label and rear inlay (High Density Compact Disc) – its total playing time is 37:47 minutes.

Until now 2004's "Greatest Hits" set was the only real indication of just how good the album 'could' sound (it offered us three Harvest tracks remastered into HDCD sound quality). And outside of the DVD Audio release (which few people have) - 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.

With this and the previous years album After the Goldrush, Neil Young established himself as the Dylan of the70's. A massive seller on both sides of the Atlantic this record introduced Neils music to a whole new audience.although it could be argued that it was the success of Heart of Gold in the singles charts that pushed up sales of Harvest.Classic tracks include the aforementioned Heart of Gold, A man needs a maid.,The Needle and the Damage done(written about Danny Whitten of Crazy Horse) and my favourite Old Man.Throughout the 70's Neil released a slew of great albums of which this is probably the greatest.
