When the new Billboard charts came out on March 11, 1972, Neil Young’s fourth solo LP “Harvest” was the new #1 album in the US. It knocked Don McClean’s LP “American Pie” out of the top spot where it had been for the past 7 weeks.
“Harvest” featured the London Symphony Orchestra on two tracks and vocals by noted guests David Crosby, Graham Nash, Linda Ronstadt, Stephen Stills, and James Taylor. It spawned two hit singles, “Old Man”, which peaked at #31 on the Billboard Hot 100, and “Heart of Gold”, which reached #1.
It was the best-selling album of 1972 in the United States.
How many of you still give this album a listen every now and then?
