Listen: Neil Young’s ‘Lost’ “Time Fades Away”


In early 1973 Neil Young went on 62-date tour following the huge success of his album, Harvest, with the hit single “Heart Of Gold.”

Young surprised his fans by performing many new songs, as well as more familiar ones. He recorded the tour and released an album of eight live songs which he called, Time Fades Away.

He later regretted that album and it’s never been released on CD.

For a nice essay on the album, go to Ultimate Classic Rock.

Hear the entire album now, 40 years after its original release on vinyl.
