iTunes Editors’ Notes

Crosby and Nash always represented the whimsical, tuneful side of CSNY, while Stills and Young brought the supergroup its soul and grit. Oddly, when the quartet split itself into two pairs, each duo took on the other’s qualities. Crosby & Nash’s Wind On the Water was full of guitar-driven drama, while Stills and Young’s Long May You Run contains some of the mildest music of either man’s career. Stills’ songs “12/8 Blues” and “Guardian Angel” faintly echo the dueling guitar fury of their Buffalo Springfield days, while his “Make Love To You” is a moody piece of pop-rock. “Midnight On the Bay” is about as close as Young ever got to the yacht-rock of Jimmy Buffet and Loggins & Messina, but the tumbling, buzzing country of “Let It Shine” can sit comfortably next to Young classics like “Roll Another Number” and “Lookin’ For a Love.” The title track — Young’s ode to his infamous Buick Roadmaster hearse, the car he was driving when he first met Stills — is an easygoing, expertly crafted piece of folk rock that would go on to become one of Young’s signature songs.

Customer Reviews

An interesting side road for Neil Young

Thirty-plus years after its heralded release - and the aborted Stills-Young Band tour that came in its wake - Long May You Run stands today as one of the many interesting detours that Neil Young has taken over the years. This is not the sound of two musicians looking for common ground, despite their lengthy personal and working (Buffalo Springfield, CSNY) history. Rather, each presents their tunes with seemingly little contribution from the other. So what we get is a pretty-good-for-its time Stephen Stills record, with 12/8 Blues a special standout, and Make Love To You an adequate slow burner. Young's songs include the now classic title track, an almost polite country-rocker in the upbeat Let It Shine, and a genuinely creepy ode to decaying lives, Fountainbleau - "where the blue haired ladies and wheelchairs have gone." Rust never sleeps indeed - this is the closest Young ever got to true MOR rock. Perhaps that's why he bailed on the tour and continued on his own idiosyncratic and winding path.

one of my favorites

Midnight On the Bay and Fontaineblue are two of my favorite Neil Young songs, I love the Florida vibe. Make Love To You and Black Coral are the Stills highlights on this album. Overall this album is great, if you're a fan of either of these two musicians you'll enjoy it.

classic work of art

how do you rate perfection? you don't. just listen and enjoy. the first time i saw these guys as buffalo springfield (farewell concert @ long beach arena about 1968-9?) i didn't know much about them. not my girlfriend, nancy, who insisted we go. her parents drove us. i'll never be able top thank her enough for this all day/night concert. fell asleep during smokestack lighting (middle of day). but by the time bs came on we were at stage right. i never saw such playmenship and artistry at the guitars of ss&ny. they were playin their hearts out. i have half an ipod of neil's music almost. still puttin more in. this album is one of the very best. long may you run is like an indigenous prayer. fontainbleau is a statement of our society that seems more of a prediction than a fact until i studied the truth behind american history. it is said that 90% of the indigenous peoples died from white man's diseases before the 1800's. we didn't actually murder them in their ho gongs and tepees, but just finished them off. this continues today with the corporate structure and lack of decent health care. they have certainly painted it green, for the well to do. midnight on the bay evokes such dreamy visions of romancing the third stone from the sun. same as the fun song ocean girl. then there's black coral another water song. this is great. the feminine side of life is expressed, three times in a row. four if you count make love to you. closing with guardian angel, what a work of true art, forever in my heart. thank you neil and stephen!
