Info for Rust Never Sleeps (Remastered)

Neil Young and Crazy Horse released an album which answered the question, “When is a live album not a live album?” The answer: when you record it live and then go on to do everything in your power to remove the sounds that usually accompany a live show.

First of all, in referring to this as a live album, you have to set aside the tracks “Pocahontas” and “Sail Away,” which Young recorded in 1975 during the sessions for his 1978 album, Comes a Time. If you've noted the amount of time between recording and release, then you may understand why Young was so blasé when it came to promoting that particular album, telling Cameron Crowe in a 1979 Rolling Stone interview, “I hear it on the radio and it sounds nice, but I'm somewhere else now. I'm into rock & roll.” As a result, Young embarked on a tour which he dubbed “Rust Never Sleeps” - a phrase he first heard from the members of Devo, of all people - and decided that, after having been relatively relaxed for the past few albums, it was time to get back to rock 'n' roll.

Recorded at various times and venues between 1978, the material on Rust Never Sleeps was unabashedly manipulated, with plenty of overdubs added after the fact, but it hardly mattered: Young was up front about the sonic tweaks, and critics loved the material far too much to care about the adjustments that had been made in the studio. The bookends of “My My, Hey Hey” - it opens with “Out of the Blue” and closes with “Into the Black” - are both absolutely amazing, but the material housed between them is almost as strong, hence the album's regular appearances on best-of lists…and that's not only for the '70s, it's for all time.

„Rust Never Sleeps, its aphoristic title drawn from an intended advertising slogan, was an album of new songs, some of them recorded on Neil Young's 1978 concert tour. His strongest collection since Tonight's the Night, its obvious antecedent was Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home, and, as Dylan did, Young divided his record into acoustic and electric sides while filling his songs with wildly imaginative imagery. The leadoff track, 'My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)' (repeated in an electric version at album's end as 'Hey Hey, My My [Into the Black]' with slightly altered lyrics), is the most concise and knowing description of the entertainment industry ever written; it was followed by 'Thrasher,' which describes Young's parallel artistic quest in an extended metaphor that also reflected the album's overall theme -- the inevitability of deterioration and the challenge of overcoming it. Young then spent the rest of the album demonstrating that his chief weapons against rusting were his imagination and his daring, creating an archetypal album that encapsulated his many styles on a single disc with great songs -- in particular the remarkable 'Powderfinger' -- unlike any he had written before.“ (William Ruhlmann, AMG)
