The last truly great Neil Young album, American Stars And Bars followed on the heels of other 70's Young masterpieces, Time Fades Away, Tonight's The Night and Zuma. Stars And Bars finds Neil and familar Crazy Horse bandmates in top form as they rip through an inspired set of classics like Saddle Up The Palomino, Hey Babe, Hold Back The Tears, Star Of Bethlehem and the sensational Like A Hurricane.
Wonderful remastering job by Warner Records, in capturing the sheer energy of this vintage recording. The sound simply jumps out at you in torrents of sonic energy like...like...well... LIKE A HURRICANE!!!! Now if Warner Records would only reissue the last remaining gem in Young's phenomal 70's output, that being Time Fades Away. This one may very well be his most underrated album of all.
