Reprise Records To Release Vinyl Reissues of Four Classic Neil young Albums on September 6th

Reprise Records will release vinyl reissues of four seminal Neil Young albums from the 1970s on September 6th. The four classic albums – Time Fades Away, On The Beach, Tonight’s The Night, and Zuma – have been out of print for many years and are considered by both fans and critics alike to be among the finest work of Young’s career and among the most critically acclaimed and influential song-cycles ever.

These four albums were previously released as a Limited Edition Box Set for Record Store Day in 2014, but this is the first time they have been reissued separately. Each one has been remastered from the original analog master studio recordings at Bernie Grundman Mastering. The artwork features historically accurate reproductions by Young’s long-time art director, Gary Burden.

The highly sought-after Time Fades Away was recorded live with Neil Young and The Stray Gators while touring in support of Harvest in 1972, released in the fall of 1973 and comprised of material unreleased at that time.

1974’s On The Beach was recorded after Tonight’s The Night, but ultimately released before TTN had hit the shelves. The albums enduring appeal would find the record listed at #40 of The Top 100 Canadian Albums as well as Pitchfork’s Top 100 Albums of the 1970s at #65.

Tonight’s The Night was recorded in 1973 but not officially released until 1975. The basic core band behind this outing would be known at the time as the Santa Monica Flyers, though album tracks would include those recorded with Crazy Horse as well as The Stray Gators. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked TTN among their 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.

Zuma, Young’s seventh studio album released in 1975 was co-credited as Neil Young and Crazy Horse and features the “classic” line-up of Crazy Horse comprised of Talbot, Molina & Sampedro plus other contributors.
