Here’s a short video about the making of Neil Young’s album “Harvest”.
One of the things he says is that he viewed the album as “something to avoid repeating”.
What an artist!
The follow-up to Harvest was a great album called “On the Beach”…..but it was pretty different from the potential successful “formula” that he could have mined for a while.
It was a big swing away from the type of music featured on Harvest….and, maybe for that reason, is one of my favorites.
It would have taken a brave man to make an album like On the Beach after having an album with the success that Harvest had.
What a creative dude!
