When Neil Young found himself in Nashville in 1971, he decided to record some newly penned numbers with an impromptu band featuring bassist Tim Drummond, drummer Kenny Buttrey, and steel guitarist Ben Keith.
Collectively, they called themselves The Stray Gators and they went on to record one of the most enduring and best loved albums of his entire career, Harvest. The songs were about loneliness, loss, despair and longing.
Harvest has many highlights, but a favourite to many is Old Man, a song about a young man pondering over his own mortality. More than 20 years later, Young recorded a follow up, Harvest Moon.
