Neil Young: Hawks & Doves

[cover art]

Neil Young hit a commercial peak with Harvest in 1972 and a critical peak with Rust Never Sleeps in 1979. Most of the 1980s, when he was frequently distracted by personal problems, were problematic on both scores, starting with this album, a patchwork effort from various sessions in the manner of American Stars 'N Bars, but without any really strong material. Subsequent efforts, however, would prove it one of his better efforts of the decade.
-- William Ruhlmann, All-Music Guide

"The Old Homestead" dates back to 1974. Neil will often hold onto a song until he feels the time is right to release it, and it is the only track on that side with instruments other than Neil's guitar and harmonica. The song has a ghostly, Band-like feel to it, helped by the presence of Band drummer Levon Helm.
-- Jeff Connelly

Hawks and Doves was finally released on CD in June 2003 by Reprise Records, digitally remastered but without any bonus tracks.
