Neil Young 1970 NYC Caricature, illustrated here during photoshoots for his “After The Gold Rush” Album, New York City, in June 1970, age 25.
Young is a Canadian-born singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and activist. After embarking on a music career in the 1960s, he moved to Los Angeles, joining Buffalo Springfield with Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and others. Since his early solo albums and those with his backing band Crazy Horse, Young has been prolific, recording a steady stream of studio and live albums.
Young released his third solo album, After the Gold Rush (August 31, 1970), which featured, among others, Nils Lofgren, Stephen Stills, and CSNY bassist Greg Reeves. Young also recorded some tracks with Crazy Horse, but dismissed them early in the sessions.
Young’s newfound fame with CSNY made the album his commercial breakthrough as a solo artist, and it contains some of his best known work, including “Tell Me Why” and “Don’t Let It Bring You Down”, the country-influenced singles “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” and “When You Dance I Can Really Love”, and the title track, “After the Gold Rush”, played on piano, with dream-like lyrics that ran a gamut of subjects from drugs and interpersonal relationships to environmental concerns.
Young’s bitter condemnation of racism in the heavy blues-rock song “Southern Man” (along with a later song entitled “Alabama”) was also controversial with southerners in an era of desegregation, prompting Lynyrd Skynyrd to decry Young by name in the lyrics to their hit “Sweet Home Alabama.”
However, Young said he was a fan of Skynyrd’s music, and the band’s front man Ronnie Van Zant was later photographed wearing a Tonight’s the Night T-shirt on the cover of an album.
Critical reaction has improved with time; by 1975, Rolling Stone was referring to the album as a “masterpiece”, and Gold Rush is now considered a classic album in Young’s recording career.
