Neil Young Announces Clear Vinyl Reissue Of ‘Harvest Moon’
Neil Young has announced a clear vinyl reissue of his classic album Harvest Moon, coming on 22 September.
When Harvest Moon was originally released on 2 November 1992, it was Young’s 19th studio album of a career defined by sharp artistic left-turns. It had been almost 25 years since his debut self-titled release on Reprise Records in 1968, and the impact Young’s body of work had on modern music positioned him among a rarefied group of artists and esteemed songwriters.
Recorded on analogue equipment using digital technology, classic songs like From Hank to Hendrix, Unknown Legend, One of These Days immediately found a popular global home with fans of all ages.
Working with producer/pedal steel guitarist Ben Keith, keyboardist Spooner Oldham, bassist Tim Drummond and drummer Kenny Buttrey, the players captured a timeless sound that stood out as its own style in a time when so much other music was moving in a louder, more aggressive direction.
Guest artists on Harvest Moon included Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Nicolette Larson and Astrid Young.
Harvest Moon became one of Young’s of his most beloved and enduring albums. It was certified double platinum in the US, five times platinum in Canada and gold in the UK and Australia, winning the 1994 Juno Award in Canada for Album of the Year. In its new, clear vinyl release, what originally was the pristine sound of a handful of musicians playing together in an air of soulful sonics comes alive again with a new resonance of wonder.
