Originally released September 19, 1970, After the Gold Rush is cemented in the annals of music history--the album has often been rightly recognized as one of the finest ever made. The collection combined Young's poetic lyricism and wistful melodies, driven by both dreamy folk arrangements and ferocious rock 'n' roll, and in the decades since has been certified double platinum in both the U.S. and the U.K.The 50th Anniversary Edition vinyl boxset features a variant of the artwork, originally created by Neil's long-time art director Gary Burden, made in collaboration with Grammy Award-winning artist Jenice Heo. The set also includes a 7” single in a picture sleeve with two versions of album outtake “Wonderin'.” Side A, originally included in The Archives Vol. 1: 1963-1972, was recorded in Topanga, California, in March 1970, and Side B is a previously unreleased version recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood in August 1969.

For the most part its just a country music album. The ending of track 4 is very annoying. I only liked tracks 2 and 3.

After the Gold Rush is probably Neil Young best album and most popular. How can one improve on an album that had "When You Dance, I Can Really Love", "Tell Me Why", and my favorite, "Southern Man". Neil Young seems so busy with CSN&Y, staring with Crazy Horse, and solo performing. Yet he consistently puts out great music. After the Gold Rush is a Top 100 Classic Rock Album. Material like this is what put Neil Young in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
