Neil Young On the Beach LP
1974 Album Reissued On Vinyl LP!
Features Guest Artists Davis Crosby, Graham Nash And Levon Helm!
Music for the 1974 release On The Beach was actually recorded after the song
list for Tonight's the Night but was released before that album which was
released in 1975.
On the Beach shares some of the bleakness from the Tonight's the Night which was
created out of grief from the loss of a friend and roadie.
"...On the Beach was savage and, ultimately, triumphant. 'I'm a vampire,
babe,' Young sang, and he proceeded to take bites out of various subjects:
threatening the lives of the stars who lived in L.A.'s Laurel Canyon
('Revolution Blues'; answering back to Lynyrd Skynyrd, whose 'Sweet Home
Alabama' had taken him to task for his criticisms of the South in 'Southern Man'
and 'Alabama' ('Walk On'); and rejecting the critics ('Ambulance Blues'). But
the barbs were mixed with humor and even affection, as Young seemed to be
emerging from the grief and self-abuse that had plagued him for two years...he
was saying goodbye to despair, not being overwhelmed by it." - William
