[ Reprise / Warner / LP ]
Release Date: Friday 19 March 2021
In the years before he passed away, Gary Burden, Neil's long time art director, had envisaged solarizing the album art - especially the back cover shot of Neil's jeans & patches. Gary's partner, Jenice Heo, has now executed Gary's vision and created a unique take on this classic album cover. The cover is printed on special silver coated paper stock to create the desired effect.
Originally released on September 19th, 1970, Neil Young's seminal album "After The Gold Rush" has rightly been acknowledged as one of the finest albums ever made. It is one of Neil Young's masterpieces and in addition to the title track it features the classic songs "Tell Me Why", "Only Love Can Break Your Heart", "Southern Man", "Don't Let It Bring You Down", "Birds", and "When You Dance I Can Really Love". The album has been certified double platinum in the US and the UK and has sold consistently worldwide since its release.
- The vinyl box includes the album, with a variant of the artwork originally created by Neil's long-time art director Gary Burden, in collaboration with Jenice Heo.
- The vinyl box also includes a 7" single, in a picture sleeve, with two versions of the album outtake "Wonderin'". Side A was recorded in Topanga in March 1970 and was only released on CD in Neil Young Archives Vol 1. Side B is an unreleased version of "Wonderin'" recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood in August 1969.
- A litho print of the album front cover is also exclusively included in this vinyl box.
