50 Favorite Albums: 49
After hearing Jimmy Fallon, as Neil Young, sing Old Man with Neil Young, himself (and how haunting it was!) I decided to pursue the song and, subsequently, the rest of the album. What I found was an amazing arrangement that you would think would be somewhat abbreviated initially, but it just flows too nicely. Besides Old Man, Harvest also boasts Heart of Gold and a live recording of The Needle and the Damage Done. The collaborations are what elevates this album to the top fifty. Not only are there elements of Crosby, Stills, and Nash, but there is also the London Symphony Orchestra and James Taylor. Plus, it was the best-selling album of 1972!
