Neil Young International Harvesters – A Treasure (Warner Music Canada)

In the first half of the 1980s, Neil Young explored musical avenues including electronic rock, rockabilly and classic country music, to the chagrin of his record label. A Treasure captures Young on tour with his band The International Harvesters in 1984-85, playing songs featured on his Old Ways records. Though his label may have shunned his explorative ways, Young delivers the goods. While Harvest purists might feel these songs lean too much on classic country, the sound fits Young well.
