Neil Young - Tonight's The Night
LP - 140 Gram Vinyl housed in Gatefold Sleeve. Mastered from Original Source Material. By 1975 Young had written some of the most enduring anthems in rock history. But from the slow, tension-building piano opening of 'Tonight's the Night', he downshifts into darkness and Crazy Horse's folk-country melodies take on a guttural hum that would eventually speak to generations of punk and grunge musicians. Inspired by the overdose deaths of two of Young's friends, roadie Bruce Berry and guitarist Danny Whitten, the title track (and its closing reprise) is a hypnotic cry of "why?" Even the relative party songs, 'Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown' and 'Roll Another Number', fit the album's bus-to-nowhere resignation.
