It is interesting to find this review in the "Country" section, when there is no Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker, Poco, Eagles & the list could go on. Country to me is Hank Williams, Merle, Porter Wagoner, Buck Owens & all the rest of those cry in your pretzel boys & girls. Most of today's "Country" is really just "Pop" with probably.....well yes THE best musicians in the world playing on them. Now Neil is one of those musicians that changes when the feeling hits him & not when the record company tells him to. He said himself " Harvest put me in the middle of the road. Travelling there soon became a bore so I Headed for the ditch. A rougher ride but more interesting. Great album though. I prefer it to his grunge stuff, but I do like it when he rocks out, ala Cowgirl, Southern Man, Rockin In The Free World.

This record is what made me learn to play pedal steel guitar. Ben Keith has the sweet touch. Young's songs and guitar playing are awesome

Released in February 1972, Harvest quickly captured the national #1 slot in sales, and sustained its popularity to become the best selling album of the year. "Heart of Gold," still stands as Niel Young's most-purchased recording. He once told a reporter "I think Harvest is probably the finest record I've made."
