Info for Harvest (50th Anniversary Edition)



Fiftieth anniversary editions come out almost as often as albums did 50 years ago. Some of them even deserve the treatment. As 2022 wraps up, it’s fitting that the top-selling album of 1972 gets the deluxe treatment. Neil Young’s Harvest marked a high point for pop culture that year, and it also solidified Young’s ascendancy to stardom. While the album’s biggest numbers match the expectations for the folk-rock artist at the time, it’s quirks also point to the more varied routes he’d take in the future, showing that flexibility that continues to serve him well all these decades later.

The album proper has never really lost its classic status, adding critical acclaim to its commercial success over the years. Much of the album stays in Young’s more folk-oriented style. New supporting band the Stray Gators demonstrated the necessary flexibility, but their wheelhouse was the country and folk sound. “Heart of Gold,” released shortly before the album, quickly became one of Young’s most successful singles, and stands as some of his best writing. “The Needle and the Damage Done” gains its strength from just Young’s voice and acoustic guitar.

As straightforward (if wonderful) as some of this writing was, Young was willing to get weird, joining with the London Symphony Orchestra for tracks, including one of his worst, “A Man Needs a Maid.” Critics have gone after the song for its apparent sexism, but that reading somewhat misses the point. Young’s lyric studies loneliness and relationship with more complexity than it might seem, but his arrangement’s tediousness and the song’s slow-pacing makes it feel as if each listen takes 50 years. “There’s a World” fares better, and an album dedicated to this sound might elevate both tracks, which suffer from being juxtaposed with “Old Man” or the rocking “Alabama,” (a more considered version of “Southern Man”).

Young’s fourth solo album Harvest was originally mixed by Elliot Mazer “mostly” (their words) at Quadrafonic in Nashville, while Lee Hulko mastered the album at Sterling Sound in New York. Just as was done for the March 2021 After the Gold Rush box set, this new Harvest collection was mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Los Angeles, and is being made/pressed in Germany.
