Neil had some amazing albums, and some truly terrible ones.CaptSmethwick wrote: ↑ I have this album (on vinyl and likely in near mint condition) and would happily sell it for $5 - and I am a fan.
That being said, this is FAR from Neil's worst. Other than Decade (which is among the best greatest hits albums out there - by anybody), my NY vinyl doesn't get played much these days...

I have that album as well and I agree. For a while, my old vinyl of On the Beach was a collector's item as it was delisted for decades and wasn't released on CD until the early 2000s. Since the release of the CD and newer vinyl versions, it's probably worth $10 today at most.

Agree with this. My favorites are the Ditch Trilogy;Time Fades Away,On the Beach, Tonight's the Night. Neil was really hot in the seventies and must have produced a huge volume of music based on what has been subsequently released. I started losing interest after Rust Never Sleeps. I bought Re-ac-tor mainly because it's more of a curiosity. I'll report back if this is a legit remaster as I recall seeing a vinyl Euro Zuma that I believe was produced from a C.D.pierrefrom0rleans wrote: ↑ On The Beach is one of his best albums.

Harvest is the best entry point to Neil Young. It's a strong album and is his most accessible. I also really like Live At Massey Hall.
His music varies a lot between acoustic rock, more heartland/country type rock, and heavier rock. You can't go wrong with any album released in the 70s of his, but they do vary in quality, and they are very different. Someone might love Harvest, but not like Rust Never Sleeps.
His 80's work is basically a curiosity. There are some choice songs on his albums from the first half of the 80's, but unless you are a Neil Young fanatic, they aren't anything you're going to listen to start to finish multiple times. Things pick up again in the late 80's where he starts having stronger releases with This Notes For You, Freedom, and then in the early 90's with Ragged Glory, Harvest Moon, Sleeps With Angels, and Mirror Ball. Ragged Glory is really strong, a lot of people like Mirror Ball. While most of his early 90's work is loud rock, Harvest Moon is a detour from that, so if you like Harvest or his 70's work with those kind of arrangements, Harvest Moon is a solid choice.

True. In fairness, $4.99 was a sale price in 1981 and that would be equivalent to $15 in 2021. Plus, the quality of domestically-pressed vinyl records in the 1980s was dreadful; it is significantly better today.
