On Aug. 31, 1970, Neil Young released his third LP titled "After The Gold Rush". It was one of the four high-profile albums released by each member of folk rock collective Crosby, Stills, Nash && Young in the wake of their chart-topping 1970 album Déjà Vu. Gold Rush consisted mainly of country folk music, along with the rocking "Southern Man".
After the Gold Rush peaked at number eight on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart. Two singles from the album, "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" and "When You Dance I Can Really Love", made it to number 33 and number 93 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100. Critics were not initially impressed with the album, though it has since been considered a masterpiece, and appears on a number of greatest albums lists.

Happy 48th Birthday to "After The Gold Rush"!!!!!
