Neil Young Harvest on 180g Vinyl LP from Reprise

Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes and Pressed at Pallas: Audiophile-Grade Vinyl LP Features Exact Replication of the Original Gatefold Sleeve

Young's 1972 Classic Harvest Named by Rolling Stone Among the 100 Greatest Albums of All Time

Neil Young's career-defining fourth solo effort Harvest spawned the folk classics "Heart of Gold" and "Old Man," as well as the affecting "The Needle and the Damage Done," and went on to become the best-selling record of 1972 and one of Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Albums of All-Time. While firmly rooted in old-timey country and traditional music, the record ventures beyond conventional pastures and incorporates stabbing guitar-driven swamp ("Alabama"), hayride jigs ("Are You Ready for the Country?"), and orchestral pop ("There's a World") into its broad sonic swath.

Young's lyrics here are extraordinarily reflective and poignant. He's got love on his mind, and yet his emotions run the gamut. The music is both a release and a meditation, the stripped-down structures and economical playing conspiring to deliver maximum feeling and slow-burn impact that one never forgets. The album features the likes of steel-guitarist Ben Keith, bassist Tim Drummond, pianist/arranger Jack Nitzsche, and drummer Kenny Buttrey, as well as a who's who of background vocalists that includes none other than David Crosby, Graham Nash, Linda Ronstadt, and James Taylor.

Having languished for decades, this bonafide masterpiece has finally received the long-overdue sonic treatment it has needed. Remasted from the original analog tapes by Chris Bellman, overseen by the artist himself, and pressed at Pallas in Germany, Harvest now sounds better than ever. Young has never sounded so close, lifelike, palpable, or three-dimensional on a studio album.

The record joins 1968's Neil Young, 1969's Everybody Knows This is Nowhere, and 1970's After the Gold Rush as part of the initial batch of Young recordings pristinely mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high-quality audiophile-grade LP, and packaged in sleeves that faithfully mirror those of the originals. For Harvest, this means a paper stock that you need to feel to believe.
