When I picked up the Canterberry Sugar Mountain CD (see other thread) I also picked up After the Gold Rush. I had it for years on LP but lost it somewhere along the way as I went with CD's.

Man alive...I forgot how good it is! Just amazing. What a sweet and wonderful recording it is.

After The Gold Rush will alway's hold a special place for me , it was my first introduction to Neil Young's solo work back in those 1970's teen age days of mine.

This one holds a special place in my heart ... music of my youth. My sister and I put the hurt on our communal copy of this one sitting in our room at home (listening to our mom yell at us to 'turn it down!' and it still gets a lot of play by me - only in CD format, now. One listen here takes me back to my high school days - it was such a part of my lifes soundtrack back then.

I've always thought the 70's was Neil's prime era, and of course some of that was with CSNY. But his early solo work: Neil Young, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, After The Gold Rush, Harvest, Tonight's The Night..............I just don't see that he really matched that string of records after the 70's. Not that anyone could!! I was just thinking the other day that Neil ranks right up there close to Dylan as one of rock's great writers. And if you've seen the recent Rolling Stone interview with Dylan, he holds Neil Young in extremely high regard. Kind of shocking to hear it from Bob, but he actually made a trip to Young's Canadian hometown just to see the house and the area where Young grew up!!!

"Make way for the Cripple Creek Ferry......Great album. Anyone know the name of the movie this album was written for?


The credits read that "Most of these songs were inspired by the Dean Stockwell-Herb Berman screenplay After the Gold Rush." Young had read the screenplay and asked Stockwell if he could produce the soundtrack, and though the movie came to naught, the album After the Gold Rush was released nonetheless. When asked by Shakey author Jimmy McDonough which songs were inspired by the script, the only tracks Young could recall were "After the Gold Rush" and "Cripple Creek Ferry". Stockwell said of it "I was gonna write a movie that was personal, a Jungian self-discovery of the gnosis...it involved the Kabala (sic), it involved a lot of arcane stuff." (Shakey). Described in Shakey by fellow Topanga resident Shannon Forbes as "...A sort of an end-of-the-world movie...at the end, the hero is standing in the Corral parking lot watching this huge wave come in and this house was surfing along, and as the house comes at him, he turns the knob - and that's the end of the movie."

Unfortunately, not much else is known about the screenplay, as it is currently missing.[citation needed] (Shakey) Stockwell would work with Young later in his career, creating the cover for the American Stars 'N Bars album, as well as writing and co-directing Young's film Human Highway.

when you were young
and on your own
how it did feel
to be alone

i was always thinking of games that we were playing
trying to make the best of our time

but only love can break your heart
try to be sure right from the start
yes only love can break your heart
what if your world should fall apart

a great version of this was sung by neil, backed up by simon and garfunkel. long love neil young.

Another gem from this album comes to mind, "Birds". Is anyone else "haunted" by this tune? I really love it and am particularly moved by it. It's sort of sad but hopeful at the same time. I've told a few friends of mine that I'd like it played at my funeral party (I'm not having a funeral in the traditional sense, but a party for family and friends all on my dime).

My favorite from the album is When You Dance You Can Really Love. I can listen to every song from Tell Me Why all the way through to Cripple Creek Ferry. Albums were thick back then...

I have felt that way for years. Decade after decade, and he is still putting out stuff that is RELAVENT. He will have no part of becoming an oldies act. (A quality he shares with the ABB)

Students are gunned down at Kent state, and what....5 days later (something like that), and "Ohio" is being played on the airwaves.

His buddy dies from the needle...and out comes "The Needle and the Damage Done".

The war album a couple years ago.

Southern Man

Alabama

Etc etc etc....
