Neil Young's Harrowing, Loose, Emotionally Raw Tribute to His Fallen Friends in Unrivaled Analog Sound: 1974 Masterpiece Tonight the Night Mastered from the Original Master Tapes
One of the most harrowing, weary, mournful, and emotionally raw albums ever made, Neil Young's Tonight's the Night remains an uncompromising reflection of life, loss, and torment. Revealing the inner depths of the singer-songwriter's pain, and presenting every note and ragged vocal expression with staggering realism, this audiophile reissue of Tonight's the Night is mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on dead-quiet vinyl for the ultimate listening experience.
Recorded in the wake of the drug overdoses of Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten and friend and roadie Bruce Berry, the unflinchingly somber affair serves as a eulogy to both men and is dark and moving in equal measures. The nocturnal, come-as-you-go arrangements and Young's loose performances make a perfect match. Recognized by Rolling Stone as the 330th greatest album ever made, and looked upon by countless listeners as a inimitable masterwork, Tonight's the Night is as honest, frayed, and direct as rock n' roll gets.
