Neil Young's On the Beach

I do not know much about this album and actually have never even played it. It was in a box I bought at a garage sale this summer. At garage sales, I typically make an offer to the seller like, "how much for the whole box?" and then see what I've bought when I take them home and go through them. I am posting it because a cool guy whose office suite is next door to my office is a huge Neil Young fan. Rolling Stone magazine's initial review of the album described it as "one of the most despairing albums of the decade (seventies)." Hope you like this, Michael.

  1. stephen holden [r-s] article clearly does not get this album. he does not do it justice. you found a gem. the vinyl is hard to find and was not released to cd for 3 decades due to neil's quirks and love of this work.

    every neil young fan must own it. his best in my opinion. i had to order the vinyl from amzn b/c i could not find it anywhere.

    have some thoughts on the album here if you are interested:
