    Groups were churning out great albums in 1972. Neil Young’s Harvest still sounds fresh 50 years later.

    Young’s fourth solo album remains one of the most beloved in his catalog and is dense with songs that have long-permeated radio waves. The 50th Anniversary Edition Box Sets will be released December 2, 2022, on Vinyl and CD, boasting the original album, three studio outtakes on CD/7” vinyl, and an unreleased live 1971 BBC solo performance on CD, LP and DVD.  The film Harvest Time is a previously unseen 2-hour documentary filmed in 1971, documenting the Harvest sessions.  Also included in the package are a hardbound book and a fold-out poster. The vinyl box sets include a lithograph print.

    Fans of the record will receive a new glimpse into Harvest through the two DVDs included in the box set. The first is Harvest Time, an unreleased two-hour film shot during the making of Harvest, with footage from Young’s ‘Harvest Barn’ sessions in Northern California, recording sessions in Nashville and London. The second is a film of the unreleased solo BBC Concert recorded on February 23, 1971. Also included are three unreleased tracks from the original Harvest sessions: “Bad Fog of Loneliness,” “Journey Through The Past,” and “Dance Dance Dance.”  Additionally, the hardbound book will include never-before-seen photos along with extensive liner notes by photographer Joel Bernstein.
