1977's American Stars 'N Bars is the gold-certified eighth solo studio effort from trailblazing music luminary Neil Young and follow-up to 1975's Zuma. Cut at four separate recording sessions dating back to 1974, Young co-produced the roots 'n' rock 9-song affair with David Briggs and Tim Mulligan and it offers a mixed bag of the many styles Neil Young had explored on prior outings.

Neil Young made a point of listing the recording dates of the songs on American Stars 'n Bars; the dates even appeared on the LP labels. They revealed that the songs had been cut at four different sessions dating back to 1974. But even without such documentation, it would have been easy to tell that the album was a stylistic hodgepodge, its first side consisting of country-tinged material featuring steel guitar and fiddle, plus backup vocals from Linda Ronstadt and the then-unknown Nicolette Larson, while the four songs on the second side varied from acoustic solo numbers like "Will to Love" to raging rockers such as "Like a Hurricane."

Cut at four separate recording sessions dating back to 1974, Young co-produced the roots 'n' rock 9-song affair with David Briggs and Tim Mulligan and it offers a mixed bag of the many styles the mercurial singer/songwriter had explored on prior outings. There's beautiful country-rock material ("The Old Country Waltz," "Star of Bethlehem"), introspective acoustic solo numbers ("Will to Love"), and extended ragers ("Like a Hurricane") not to mention guest appearances by Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Nicolette Larson on backup vocals plus the always consummate Crazy Horse, which absolutely steals the show!
