Neil Young

Unknown Legend

Song Review by

The opening track of Neil Young's Harvest Moon clearly revisits the mood and feel that Young captured in the 1972 namesake. Opening with a simple, folksy guitar riff and melody that carries the entire song, Young revisits old memories and lovers. The rural backdrop of the lyrics is perfectly framed by the lyrics, and the listener indeed receives a clear, almost cinematic picture of the female subject in the song. An exquisite arrangement, featuring Linda Ronstadt on harmony vocals, is perfectly executed.
