Hi-Res Distinctions 4F de Télérama - Best New Reissue
A great expert in unearthing and displaying his own buried treasures, Neil Young has always had a pretty unique relationship with recordings of his own music. The Loner records sessions by the shovelful, and sometimes decides to shove the result in the basement, sometimes to publish it. It depends, and his choices can be puzzling. His XXL discography looks like a rollercoaster, with incredible summits, but also some steep declines... This Hitchhiker who appeared in Summer 2017 in fact brought together songs from an acoustic session on 11 August 1976 and which figure, by and large, on the albums he brought out in the five years previous: Pocahontas (on Rust Never Sleeps in 1979, including some overdubs), Powderfinger (also on Rust Never Sleeps, recorded live with Crazy Horse), Captain Kennedy (on Hawks & Doves in 1980), Ride My Llama (again, on Rust Never Sleeps, a solo live performance), Hitchhiker (on Le Noise en 2010, on electric guitar), Campaigner (on Decade in 1977, missing a verse), Human Highway (on Comes A Time in 1978, recorded as a group) and The Old Country Waltz (on American Stars 'n Bars in 1977, with Crazy Horse). There are also two completely new numbers: Hawaii and Give Me Strength… If all that sounds a little warmed-over or for fans only, the beauty of the versions offered up on this striking compilation renders the result unmissable. These compositions are of the highest calibre. But the performances are truly inspired. A pure marvel. © MZ/Qobuz

Hi-Res Distinctions 4F de Télérama - Pitchfork: Best New Reissue
Tonight’s The Night is one of the greatest dark albums in the history of rock’n’roll. Within six month, Neil Young lost two close friends to overdoses: his guitarist Danny Whitten and his roadie Bruce Berry. It explains why the album he recorded soon after, in August and September 1973 (which was only released in June 1975, after On The Beach), was so dark… The introspective trip of Tonight’s The Night feeds on these personal tragedies and blends them with the oppressive atmosphere that reigned in the US at the time. Urban violence, rampant drug use, Vietnam War and faltering hippie utopia all contributed to his sombre yet sublime and poignant partition. Even the instrumentation of Tonight’s The Night is wavering between a flickering piano and a thrifty pedal steel guitar. A stripped-bare style to better highlight the beauty of the melodies on moving ballads like Tired Eyes, New Mama and Borrowed Tune… On September 20th, 21st and 22nd of 1973, Neil Young and his musicians, baptised the Santa Monica Flyers (with Ben Keith on the pedal steel guitar, Nils Lofgren on the guitar and piano, Billy Talbot on the bass and Ralph Molina on drums), stepped onto the stage of Roxy, a brand-new club in West Hollywood, Los Angeles. In their hands, this new repertoire that stunk of death and sulphur, but the versions they delivered to the Californian public were bursting with true emotional power, real warmth and, at times, a sincere and communicative joy that was – logically – absent from the studio versions. That’s the true magic of this unearthed and restored archive. And while Neil Young’s fans will no doubt have this Roxy − Tonight’s The Night Live on repeat, newcomers can also jump on this stunning bandwagon and discover the universe of a unique musician who was, at the time, on top of his game and writing. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Hi-Res Distinctions Pitchfork: Best New Reissue
Neil Young's "lost album," Homegrown, gets its debut 41 years late. Young shelved it because he "just couldn't listen to" the heartache, which followed the collapse of his romance with actress Carrie Snodgress. Meant to fall between Harvest and Comes a Time, the 1974 time capsule fits neatly in that space. "Separate Ways" and "Try," both featuring drums by Levon Helm, truly feel like an extension of Harvest: the former a noir-country lament and the latter an ambling plea for love lifted aloft by Emmylou Harris' backing vocals. Throughout, train-whistle harmonica is a Greek chorus, popping up on the gorgeous and hopeless "Star of Bethlehem" ("All your dreams and your lovers won't protect you") and stripped-bare "Love Is a Rose"—which would be made famous in '75 by Linda Ronstadt and here ends with urgent guitar chords like exclamation points of warning. There are moments of indulgence—you're safe to skip any title that's the name of a place—but also songs that stand with his best. The blistering "Vacancy" ("You poison me with that long, vacant stare") and high-lonesome "White Line," with Robbie Roberston, aren't to be missed. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz
