Neil Young: Heart of Gold

 
9781783057900: Neil Young: Heart of Gold

(Book). From his debut with local bands in his native Canada to his 2014 album A Letter Home , Neil Young's career spans over 50 years of rock-music history. Through his time with the seminal West Coast band Buffalo Springfield, collaborations with Crosby, Stills & Nash, his solo years starting in the late 1960s, and subsequent tours and albums as a singer-songwriter, Young's work has uniquely reflected the shifting musical styles of five decades, including rock, punk, electro-pop, and the retro vision of Americana. Every aspect of Young's remarkable life is explored through exclusive interviews with fellow musicians, record producers, music journalists, film directors, and loyal fans. Among those featured are musicians Graham Nash, Nils Lofgren, and Richie Furay; filmmaker Jim Jarmusch; photographer Henry Diltz; and many more. Featuring a retrospective commentary on Neil Young's studio and live albums, a complete discography, and photographs and memorabilia from throughout his career, the book places Young's musical achievements within the context of his life an essential and timely celebration.

Review:

''[A] very well written and well designed book that also includes a very thorough discography cataloging everything from a 1963 single with the Squires to 2015's The Monsanto Years. There's also a couple of hundred photographs, some of which are previously unpublished and all carefully chosen and the book is interspersed with a year by year timeline that acts as a quick reference point for major events along the way. Neil Young fans are unlikely to be disappointed.'' --Louder Than War

Neil Young's career has traced an arc over five decades. The ups and downs of his career could fill a book, and luckily we have the supremely talented Harvey Kubernik to provide us with it. The author is a cultural historian with not only a tremendous gift as a writer but also the insight and understanding to unravel not only who an artist is but why...Once again, Kubernik has taken the reins of a wild horse and tamed him. He gives a face and focus to an artist nobody has really understood--until now. --Curled Up With a Good Book
