Author: Sam Inglis
Type: Non-fiction, single subject
Part of series: 33 1/3 (#3)
I read it: April 2008
This is the first book I’ve read in the 33 1/3 series. It does exactly what you would expect a book about an album to do by laying out Young’s career in the times surrounding Harvest. It details the recording of the album in its various locations and lays out all the players involves, and provides a track by track analysis of the album. Most interestingly, Inglis tries, in bits and pieces, to uncover how this album could be simultaneously so loved and despised. It’s a quick read, and popping on the album in the background while flipping through its history is a great way to spend an afternoon.
