|Record label||Reprise Records|
|Year of release||2016|
|Grading||New/Still Factory Sealed|
|Stock list||Neil Young|
|Additional info||Scarce original 2016 European pressed Reprise label vinyl LP reissue of Young's doom laden 1974 masterpeice and follow up to the massive 'Harvest' album. |
Flanked by the recordings to 'Time Fades Away' and 'Tonight's the Night', 'On The Beach' comes through as a sparsely produced, loose, raw and savage carpet for Youngs emotionally stark and bleak lyrics which sees him surfacing '... from the grief and self-abuse that had plagued him for two years.'*
'On The Beach' was recorded with The Bands Rick Danko and Leon Helm, Billy Talbot & Ralph Molina from Crazy Horse and Graham Nash and David Crosby.
The reissue captures the artwork of the original 1974 issue - from the tan 'steamship' labels, the lyric inner sleeve, the floral interior of the iconic cover displaying Young fronting the ocean with his back to scattered by the detritus of the disintegrating west coast lifetstyle.
