Neil Young - Harvest
Release date:February 14, 1972
Genre: Folk Rock
It featured the London Symphony Orchestra on two tracks, while noted guests David Crosby, Graham Nash, Linda Ronstadt, Stephen Stills, and James Taylor contributed vocals.
"Heart of Gold" wrote in 1971 after he suffered a back injury that made it difficult for him to play the electric guitar, so on the "Harvest" tracks he played acoustic.
It topped the Billboard 200 album chart for two weeks, and spawned two hit singles, "Old Man", which peaked at #31 on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Heart of Gold", which peaked at #1. It was the best-selling album of 1972.
