Neil Young's Memories of Recording Harvest Album: "Sessions of a Lifetime"


In Neil Young's latest posting on Archives: Times-Contrarian, he writes very extensively about the recording of his album Harvest in 1971.

Musicians such as Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor are discussed, as well as, the recording techniques, locations and instruments. What Neil calls "The Sessions of a Lifetime", this account is about as much detail anyone will find anywhere on Neil Young's most popular and enduring album. Well worth a reading.

Not sure about 'enduring' - career definer perhaps ?

From the April sessions I couldn't see Neil mentioning tho original versions of Alabama and See The Sky About To Rain. It's possible that the original masters were gone lost. Mixes of Alabama are listed in the Archive's Book. Nothing from See The Sky.

The singer-songwriter Neil Young and actor Daryl Hannah are said to have married during a small ceremony in California at the weekend.

The couple reportedly wed on Saturday in Atascadero, after a ceremony on Young’s yacht near the San Juan islands.

The guitarist Mark Miller appeared to confirm the news on Facebook when he congratulated the couple. He later clarified that he had not attended the ceremony. “I only knew about it because one of my friends attended the ceremony in Atascadero and announced it on his page,” Miller said.

The administrator of Young’s blog also congratulated the pair, and referred to comments from attendees, who described the event as “a shindig”.

Hannah posted a cryptic image to her Instagram account the following day. She captioned the picture of an owl: “Someone’s watching over us … love and only love.”

Young and Hannah had reportedly been dating since 2014, when Young filed for divorce from Pegi Young, his wife of 36 years. On the media scrutiny surrounding his relationship with Hannah, Young said: “We didn’t pay any attention to that. It doesn’t matter. We don’t give a shit. We don’t care, because they don’t know what they’re talking about. And if they do know what they’re talking about, we still don’t care, but we’re happy for them. It doesn’t matter. What matters is us, not the press.”

This year, Young appeared in the Netflix film Paradox, a fantasy western musical directed by Hannah.

Neil Young planned his wedding to Daryl Hannah so that they’d have a nearly full moon shining down as he serenaded her with “Harvest Moon.”

The ceremony on Friday was top-secret and held near San Luis Obispo, Calif. — a three- to-four-hour drive from Los Angeles — to keep away paparazzi.

Joni Mitchell and Stephen Stills were among the only celebs there. The 100 invited guests were each given a heart-shaped locket with photos inside of the bride and groom’s smiling faces.

Guests also received a list of nearby hotels, but were told, “Please note the hotels do not have information about the event, so please only contact them to book a room (and do not mention anything about this event).”

A wedding planner also advised guests, “Everyone will be asked to leave their phones and cameras at the hotel.”


Hannah, 57, whose past loves include John F. Kennedy Jr. and Jackson Browne, has been seeing Young, 72, since 2014.

Hannah and Young led a Keystone XL pipeline protest in Washington, DC, in April of that year, and in July, Young filed for divorce from Pegi, his wife of 36 years.

When his and Hannah’s romance was discovered, Young said publicly that they didn’t care what people thought about it. “We didn’t pay any attention to that. It doesn’t matter. We don’t give a s - - t . . . What matters is us, not the press.”

Just FWIW, has been confirmed by those close to Neil that the ceremony was on the Ragland in July, and last weekend's gathering was a reception (both on full moons).

Karl Himmel, Ralph Molina and James Mazzeo were at the shindig.

The person who bought the Ragland stopped making payments so Neil repossessed it a few years ago.
