Jun 13, 2011What makes this album a must for Young aficionados is that the Harvesters are likely the most musically accomplished band the singer ever assembled. Thibodeaux's fiddle and Keith's steel-guitar complement Young's craggy guitar; there's an evident virtuosity, but it never comes off as slick.
Jun 13, 2011"Amber Jean" is a lovely tribute to his newborn daughter, while "Grey Riders" is a lost epic that suggests Crazy Horse with a twang infusion. The oldies shine too: "Flying on the Ground Is Wrong" sounds as if it originated with the Flying Burrito Brothers instead of Buffalo Springfield.
Jun 13, 2011Like many of his more divisive albums, A Treasure finds him digging into a musical itch he needs to scratch-here, the country and western tradition--and while it works better than those records, it still might be more of a compelling and curious piece to the Neil Young story than it is a great live document in its own right.
