Neil & Stephen's high water marks

Two key albums from two key guys came out in late winter/early spring of 1972 and can not be ignored.

First, Neil Young's best selling Harvest. An album that was primarily recorded in Nashville with a new group, The Stray Gators. Two tracks were recorded in London with a symphony orchestra. And a devasting solo recording lamenting the loss of the guitarist from Crazy Horse, Danny Whitten.

After Stephen Stills' two solo records (but with a lot of friends!), he put together a touring group called Manassas. The double record is one of Stills' finest works and has stood the test of time.
