Neil Young - Homegrown

Streaming now on Neil Young Archives.

I apologize. This album 'Homegrown' should have been there for you a couple of years after 'Harvest'. It’s the sad side of a love affair. The damage done. The heartache. I just couldn’t listen to it. I wanted to move on. So I kept it to myself, hidden away in the vault, on the shelf, in the back of my mind … but I should have shared it. It’s actually beautiful. That’s why I made it in the first place. Sometimes life hurts. You know what I mean. Anyway, it’s coming your way in 2020, the first release from our archive in the new decade.

Made in 1974 and early 1975 with Levon Helm drumming on some tracks, Karl T Himmel on others, Emmy Lou Harris singing on one, ‘Homegrown’ contains a narration, several acoustic solo songs never even published or heard until this release, and some songs played with a great band of my friends, including Ben Keith – steel and slide, Tim Drummond – bass and Stan Szelest – piano.

Sounds like the second album of one of those double albums that goes on too long. And the good half was American Stars 'N Bars.

That cover art is really fucking weird when you look at it closely
