Music for the 1974 release On The Beach was actually recorded after the song list for Tonight's the Night but was released before that album which was released in 1975. On the Beach shares some of the bleakness from the Tonight's the Night which was created out of grief from the loss of a friend and roadie.

 

"...On the Beach was savage and, ultimately, triumphant. 'I'm a vampire, babe,' Young sang, and he proceeded to take bites out of various subjects: threatening the lives of the stars who lived in L.A.'s Laurel Canyon ('Revolution Blues'; answering back to Lynyrd Skynyrd, whose 'Sweet Home Alabama' had taken him to task for his criticisms of the South in 'Southern Man' and 'Alabama' ('Walk On'); and rejecting the critics ('Ambulance Blues'). But the barbs were mixed with humor and even affection, as Young seemed to be emerging from the grief and self-abuse that had plagued him for two years...he was saying goodbye to despair, not being overwhelmed by it." - William Ruhlmann, All Music

 

Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes, This Vinyl LP of On the Beach Sounds Incredible: Neil Young's 1974 Record Features Unsparing Lyrics, Minimalist Production, Serene Moods.

 

The middle album of Neil Young's "Ditch Trilogy," 1974's gold-certified On the Beach was actually recorded after Tonight's the Night but released almost a year prior. Meticulously mastered from the original analog master tapes and pressed with the utmost care on dead-quiet vinyl, this analog reissue presents the album in unsurpassed sound and brings On the Beach back to standalone LP for the first time in decades.

 

The songs' minimalist and mellow production frames Young's acerbic songwriting to great effect with highlights coming in the form of the often-covered opener "Walk On," "Revolution Blues," and "Ambulance Blues." The critically acclaimed set remains one of Young's most lyrically unsparing efforts, with the singer taking everyone from the president to critics to Los Angeles celebrities to task with an unflinching mix of directness, humor, and wit that, ultimately, reveals an artist getting personal, channeling the dour moods of the era, and drawing inspiration from serenity and directness.
