*Sugar Mountain was the B-Side for the US and Japan release but in Europe the B-Side was After The Gold Rush!

Down through the years since the release of After The Gold Rush many words have been written in praise of it. I only wish to add to that great mountain by saying that surely this is one of The Greatest Albums Ever Made! I say that not because I am a huge Neil Young Fan, because I'm not at all, but I say this because the sheer quality of the music on it forces me to say it.

Sit back and listen and maybe you'll come to the same conclusion!
