Harvest is the album that came to define Americana – literally where rock and roll goes to Nashville
He had “a bad back” and “didn’t know what else to do”. But as a result, Neil Young created an album of simple low-key tunes that defined folky rockin’ and ‘home recording’, and continues to reap rewards 50 years later
Some of Australia’s best musicians playing some of the greatest songs of all time
Presented by Live Nation and ARC
Australian Rock Collective are back presenting Neil Young’s masterpiece, ‘Harvest’, live in concert in celebration of its 50th Anniversary. Don’t miss your chance to see Australia’s finest musicians live!
In February 1972, Neil Young released what would become his most successful record. “Harvest” was his fourth studio album and followed on from the brilliant “After the Gold Rush” becoming the biggest selling album of 1972, giving Neil Young his first #1 album and single with ‘Heart of Gold’.
As well as ‘Heart of Gold’, the album includes a slew of Young’s classics including ‘Old Man’, ‘Alabama’, ‘A Man Needs a Maid’, ‘Words’ and the beautiful ‘The Needle and the Damage Done’ written for his friend and bandmate Danny Whitten who would later tragically die of an overdose.
ARC will be presenting “Harvest” in its entirety before the returning to the stage in the second half of the night to present a selection of Neil Young classics from the career of one of rock music’s true masters.
