Created between January and September 1971, this docu-film takes viewers on an intimate journey to Young’s Broken Arrow Ranch in Northern California for the “Harvest Barn” sessions.
It then goes to London for an iconic performance with the London Symphony Orchestra, and to Nashville where the then 20-something Young worked on various tracks of this signature album. Performance and rehearsal content is intertwined into creative storytelling and includes most of the tracks from album Harvest, including “Heart of Gold,” “A Man Needs A Maid,” “Alabama,” and “Old Man.”
Young says himself, “This album made a big difference in my life. I played with some great friends and it’s really cool that this album has lasted so long. I had a great time and now when I listen to it, I think I was really just lucky to be there. I hope you enjoy this story, which is ‘Harvest Time,’ and which talks about everything that happened. And now people all around the world can see it at the cinema.”
For Neil Young fans old and young alike, or even for those with even a mild interest in good music, this is a must see.
