Neil Young unearths this live country album recorded with the International Harvesters. The 12-track album includes songs recorded during their 1984-85 U.S. tour. Selections include "Grey Riders" and artists include the late Ben Keith on steel and slide guitar, Rufus Thibodeaux on fiddle, Spooner Oldham and Hargus Robbins on piano, Tim Drummond and Joe Allen on bass, Karl Himmel on drums, Anthony Crawford on guitar, banjo and mandolin among others!
The live album captures this iconic artist during a fascinating time in his career, when he was facing criticism and lawsuits from his then current record company for exploring a more traditionally country sound. You can call me erratic, Young said when asked at the time about his tendency toward musical shape-shifting, but Ive been consistent about it, consistently erratic. Always celebrated for his musical versatility, A Treasure, is akin to a sonic time capsule, instantly transporting the listener to the time and place when it was made.
"I love this record. I hadn't heard these takes in 25 years, but when we unearthed them co-producer Ben Keith said, 'This is a treasure'." - Neil Young
