Neil Young and The Squires (1963 or 1964, V records ??)
The Sultan

The Sultan
Aurora

Produced by Harry Taylor

Musicians: Neil Young:  Lead Guitar
    Allan Bates:  Rhythm Guitar
    Ken Koblun:  Bass
    Ken Smyth:  Drums

Notes: This is Neil's first single.  These were instrumentals recorded by Neil and the Squires.  It was recorded on July 23, 1963 in CKRC studios in Winnipeg as a two-track recording, and it was only released locally.  The master tapes are, apparently, lost forever.  The versions that should appear on the highly anticipated Neil Young Box Set, "Archives", are taped from a copy of the single and cleaned up. These were the only two songs ever released that the Squires recorded.  They did record later in Thunder Bay (then Fort William), but these songs were never released.  These songs were "I'll Love you Forever", "I Wonder" (an early "Don't Cry    No Tears"), and "Together Alone".  All have vocals and all are now in Neil's possession (he got them from the producer when he visited Thunder Bay in '92).  They also recorded 6 or 7 songs (apparently) in Toronto.  These to are now in Neil's possession.

After The Gold Rush (July 1970, Reprise 2283)

Musicians:
     Bass: Billy Talbot, Greg Reeves
     Piano: Neil Young, Jack Nitzsche, Nils Lofgren
     Drums: Ralph Molina
     Guitars: Neil Young, Danny Whitten
     Vocals: Neil Young, Danny Whitten, Nils Lofgren, Steven Stills, Ralph Molina
     Harmonica: Neil Young
     Vibes: Neil Young
     Patches (on album cover): Susan Young (Neil's 1st wife)

Notes: Most of these songs were inspired by a screenplay for the movie "After The Goldrush", which was never actually filmed.  The screenplay was co-written by Dean Stockwell, who designed the cover  for _American_Stars_&_Bars_, and stars in the American TV show "Quantum Leap."
 The southern band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, did not like how Neil's songs, "Southern Man" and "Alabama" (on _Harvest_), perpetuated the myth that all American Southerners live in cabins and lynch Afro-Americans (even though a few Southerners still do!) [RLR]. In fact, Lynyrd Skynyrd wrote the song "Sweet Home, Alabama" in reply to Neil and actually mention his name!  Despite all this, Neil and Lynyrd Skynyrd are not really agitated with each other, and Neil once joined Lynyrd Skynyrd on stage to play "Sweet Home Alabama" (or so its rumored) [RS]!  Also, Neil originally wrote "Sedan Delivery" and "Powderfinger" for Lynyrd Skynyrd, who never recorded them.
"Oh, Lonesome Me" is a Don Gibson cover.
In the liner notes for this album, there is a track listing written in Neil's handwriting.  Apparently, this was the set list for a concert [JM].  Most of the songs in the list are currently unreleased songs.  Here is the listing:

  1.  Oh Lonesome Me
  2.  Wondering
  3.  Everybody's Alone
  4.  Sugar Mountain
  5.  Sea Of Madness
  6.  Big Waves
  7.  Dance, Dance, Dance
  8.  Birds
  9.  I Need Her Love To Get By

    Neil Young:  Vocals, Guitar
           Johnny Barbata:  Drums

Notes: (*) by Neil Young.
This is a CSNY Live Album recorded at the Fillmore East, New York, June 2-7, 1970; Chicago Auditorium, Chicago Ill., July 5, 1970; and The Forum, LA, June 26-28, 1970.  Unfortunately, some of the songs do not show the group at their best.  In fact, C, S, and Y did not want this album released on CD because of this, but, alas, the CD was finally released in Japan in early 1990 and everywhere else during the Summer of 1992.  The 1992 CD release has 4 bonus tracks which are marked by a (+).
 A few of the songs are performed solo by their writers, and are good.  Especially Neil's acoustic version of "Cowgirl In The Sand" and "Don't Let It Bring You Down".  Also, there are several between-song comments that are cool to hear.

           Steve Stills: Vocals, 2nd Lead Guitar
           Richie Furay: Vocals, Rhythm Guitarist
           Neil Young:   Vocals, Piano, Lead Guitarist
           Bruce Palmer: Bass

Notes: Another retrospective album, but double this time, so it has ~2/3 of the band's recorded output. Contains the 9 min "long version" of Bluebird.  Why "In The Hour of Not Quite Rain" was included I'll never understand as it was a "prize" in a contest LA radio station KHJ had in which the winner got their song massaged (by Richie) and recorded by the Springfield.  Some other artist, I can't remember who, also had this dubious honor.

     Rick Danko: bass on "Revolution Blues"
     George Whitsell: guitar on "Vampire Blues"
     Graham Nash: Wurlitzer piano on "On The Beach"
     Rusty Kershaw: slide guitar on "Motion Pictures", fiddle
                    on "Ambulance Blues" and incredible liner notes!

Notes: Carrie (see "Motion Pictures") is most likely Carrie Snodgrass, an actress and one of Neil's old girlfriends.  After, or perhaps the reason for the split with Susan (Neil's 1st wife), Neil fell in love with Carrie.  Listen to "A Man Needs a Maid" for Neil's commentary on the beginning of this love affair.

  "Awhile ago somewhere, I don't know when
   I was watching a movie with a friend
   I fell in love with the actress
   She was playing a part that I could understand"

The movie was "Diary of a Mad Housewife" starring Carrie Snodgrass.  Neil's and Carrie's relationship did bear a son, Zeke, Neil's first child.  It is rumored that something wicked happened between Carrie and Jack Nitzsche. Levon Helm and Rick Danko are from the band "The Band".

     Danny Whitten: vocals and guitar on "Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown"
     Jack Nitzsche: piano on "Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown"
     George Whitsell: vocals on "New Mama"

Notes: The songs on this album were recorded in 1973, but were not released until 1975.  The story is that Neil only had 9 songs for the album, and so put it aside to do "On The Beach".  Some also say that it was shelved due to lack of support from Warner/Reprise [JM].  After finishing the currently unreleased album, "Homegrown", Neil had about 10 friends over to listen it.  Apparently, "Tonight's The Night" just happened to be on the same reel, and so they listened to it as well.  After that unexpected listening, Neil says that he decided to release "Tonight's The Night" instead of "Homegrown" because of "its overall strength in performance and feeling". (Crowe)
"Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown" was recorded live at the Fillmore East in 1971 and it is a Danny Whitten/Neil Young composition. "Tonight's The Night" is about Danny Whitten and Bruce Berry (Crazy Horse roadie), who died of a drug overdose.
"Borrowed Tune" borrows the tune from the Rolling Stones' song "Lady Jane" [PG].
When preparing "Tonight's The Night" for release, Neil went through several different versions of the album.  Here is the track listing to one of the versions.  It has a few currently unreleased songs in it.

  Tonight's the Night
  Mellow My Mind
  Roll Another Number
  Tired Eyes
  Speakin' Out
  Walk On
  For the Turnstiles
  Bad Fog of Loneliness
  New Mama
  Winterlong
  Borrowed Tune
  Traces

All but two of these songs have been released either on "Tonight's The Night", "On The Beach", or "Decade".  The two songs that have never been released are "Bad Fog of Loneliness" and "Traces" (Piehler 26-28).

Notes: This supposedly is the track listing to the unreleased double album "Homegrown".  This information has not been officially released by Neil, so there is absolutely NO guarantee that this information is correct.
"Tie Plate Yodle #3" is not a song, but a bit of studio weirdness.
"Separate Ways" was recently played on Neil's tour with the Booker T & the MGs.

Notes: (*) previously unreleased tracks
This is an incredible collection of Neil Young's work.  It includes several songs that were previously unreleased.  "Down to the Wire"  is on the unreleased Buffalo Springfield album _Stampede_.  Dr. John (Mac Rebennack) plays on "Down to the Wire".  This is a must-have for any Neil Young fan, not only for the song selection, but also for Neil's hand-written liner notes.

Notes: This supposedly is the track listing to the unreleased album "Chrome Dreams".  This information has not been officially released by Neil, so there is absolutely NO guarantee that this information is correct.  In fact, there has been some recent information in the Neil Young mailing list that this album NEVER existed, and that bootleggers who are selling it are saying it is an unreleased album in order to make a buck [TP].

"Motorcycle Mama" is a song Neil wrote after watching a woman in Ft. Lauderdale fall off her bar stool [PH].

Musicians:
         Neil Young: vocals, guitar, piano
         Greg Thomas: drums
         Dennis Belfield: bass
         Ben Keith: steel guitar, dobro
         Rufus Thibodeaux: fiddle

    (**) Same musicians as above with Ben Keith & Ann Hillary O'Brien
         providing harmony vocals

     (*) Neil Young: vocals, guitars, harmonica
         Levon Helm: drums
         Tim Drummond: bass
         Tom Seribner: saw
 

Notes: "Little Wing" is not the same as Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing." Nikki Sudden & The French Revolution did an incredible cover of "Captain Kennedy" on the album _The_Bridge_, which is a Neil Young tribute album.
Levon Helm is from "The Band".
All of these songs are copyrighted 1980, except "Little Wing" (C) 1975 and "The Old Homestead" (C) 1974.  The difference in dates and musicians indicates that "The Old Homestead" was probably recorded in the mid 70's.  Since "Little Wing" sounds like Neil Young is going solo and it has a different date, it too may have been recorded in the mid 70's.

Produced by Neil Young, David Briggs and Tim Mulligan

Musicians:
     Nils Lofgren, Ben Keith, Bruce Palmer, Ralph Molina,
     Joe Lala, Frank Sampedro, Billy Talbot
     (no instruments specified)

Notes: Contrary to most people's opinion, Neil Young says that this is the other of his best two albums.  Every song on this album, except "Like An Inca" and "Little Thing Called Love", has Neil & Nils singing through a Vocoder, which makes the voice sound like a "computer voice."
Nils Lofgren is the guitarist in Bruce Springsteen's E-Street Band.  Sonic Youth did a great cover of "Computer Age" on the album "The Bridge".
There is a different version of "Like An Inca" and "Sample And Hold" on the CD version of Trans.  "Like An Inca" is actually 9:45 minutes long, instead of 8:08 as listed on the CD. "Sample And Hold" is actually 8:04 minutes long, instead of 5:09 as listed on the CD.  This same version of "Sample And Hold" also appears on the "Lucky 13" compilation CD.
(*) Also, there was one song that didn't make it on TRANS, but whose lyrics *did* appear on some liner notes, titled "If You Got Love", which was an electric-based song about (you guessed it) the tribulations encountered in another quest to find love.


Sample and Hold (1982, ??)
Neil Young

Sample And Hold (dance mix)    [6:48]
Mr. Soul (dance remix)    [5:53]
Sample And Hold (single version) [3:54]

Notes: This is a 12 inch vinyl maxi-single of Sample and Hold.  The front
       has the same picture of Neil in the "mirror guitar" as on the liner
       of Trans.

Produced by Elliot Mazer & Neil Young

Musicians:
     Neil Young: vocals, piano, guitar, harmonica
     Ben "King" Keith: alto sax, lead guitar
     Tim Drummond: upright bass
     Karl Himmel: snare
     Larry Byrom: piano, backing vocals
     Anthony Crawford: backing vocals
     Rick Palombi: backing vocals

Notes: Only (*) are written or co-written by Young - others are covers of rhythm'n'blues classics or semi-classics.  The story is that Neil's record company accused him of deliberately making a non-commercial album ("Trans") and forced him to make another one quickly (this one).  However, this story has not been confirmed.  The song "Wonderin'" was actually written by Neil in the late 60s, and has a neat video for it.  This is the other of Young's best albums, according to him...


Old Ways 1 (1983, [unreleased])

Old Ways
Depression Blues
That's Alright Mama
Cry Cry Cry
Mystery Train
Wonderin'
California Sunset
My Boy
Are There Any More Real Cowboys
Silver and Gold

Notes: This supposedly is the track listing to the unreleased first version of "Old Ways".  This information has not been officially released by Neil, so there is absolutely NO guarantee that this information is correct.  Some of this material later appeared on the released version of "Old Ways", as well as, "Everybody's Rockin'".  This album was one of the reasons that Geffen sued Neil in December of 1983.
"Old Ways" is much faster and very different sounding here.
"Depression Blues" made it onto Lucky 13.
"Depression Blues" and "Silver and Gold" were both recorded for the
"Harvest Moon" album.
"That's Alright Mama" was played a lot on the Solo Trans tour.

           Spooner Oldham:  Piano
           Larry Byrom:  Background Vocals
           Rick Palombi:  Background Vocals
           Doana Cooper:  Background Vocals
           Denise Draper:  Vocals

Notes: This is Neil Young's "country" album.  Some of his other stuff could be called near-country, but this is pure country.  Neil and the International Harvesters (his backup band) performed several of these songs on the "Austin City Limits" TV show on 9/25/84, almost a year before the album was released [DGS].  In fact, the track "California Sunset" is from the recording of this performance [DGS].
(***) "The Wayward Wind" is written by Stan Lebowsky and Herbert Newman [DGS].  It's something of a standard and has been recorded by Patsy Cline among others [DGS].
There are several familiar names in the musician's list: Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Bela Fleck, Ben Keith, and Tim Drummond.  The first three are known country / bluegrass musicians, and the last two appear on several other Neil Young albums.
Waylon Jennings later recorded a cover version of "Are There Any More Real Cowboys?".

Eldorado (1989, Reprise 20P2-2651 (CD))
Neil Young & The Restless

Don't Cry        [5:00]
Heavy Love        [5:09]
On Broadway        [4:57]
Eldorado        [6:03]

Produced by "The Volume Dealers" (Neil Young & Niko Bolas)

Musicians: Neil Young:     Vocals, Guitar
           Chad Cromwell:    Drums
           Rick "The Bass Player" Rosas: Bass

Notes: This is a 25 min. EP.  The story from Neil is that this was supposed to be a full length album, but Neil was not happy with it.  He was afraid that since this was not a real "radio" album, he would get a lot of sh*t about it.  Also, he just wanted to be able to release some new songs without having to promote them.  So, he picked 5 songs to put on an EP and released the album only in Australia and Japan.  "Don't Cry", "On Broadway", and "Eldorado" also appear on the fully released "Freedom" album, but they are slightly different versions.  The other two songs are good, and are worth getting if you ever find this disc.  Neil says that if anyone really wants a copy, they can tape it from a friend.

     Poncho Villa: acoustic guitar
     Tony Marsico: bass
     Steve Lawrence: tenor saxophone
     Larry Cragg: baritone saxophone
     Claude Cailliet: trombone
     John Fumo: trumpet
     Tom Bray: trumpet

Notes: "On Broadway" is a Drifters cover.  The entire "Sixty to Zero" song actually lasts about 30 minutes and is comprised of 11 verses. The version on this album is just a shortened version.


Time's Square (1989, [unreleased])

Eldorado
Someday
Crime In The City
Box Car
Don't Cry
Heavy Love
Wrecking Ball
Cocaine Eyes
On Broadway

Notes: This supposedly is the track listing to the unreleased album "Time's Square".  This information has not been officially released by Neil, so there is absolutely NO guarantee that this information is correct.
This was the album that provided much of the source material for "Freedom" and the "Eldorado" EP.  Side 2 (except for "Wrecking Ball") is all very loud electric music.  This album was so close to release that copies were issued to radio stations before Neil pulled back and decided to work on it some more.  "Don't Cry" features the more ragged mix used on "Eldorado".  The only song from this album not to show up on an official release is "Box Car".  A wonderful, slow low-key electric distortion based number.

Arc (11/12/91, Reprise 26769)
Neil Young & Crazy Horse

Arc    [35:00]

Notes: This is total noise!  (That's a description, not a value judgement.)  Neil took parts of songs from _Weld_ and put them together into a single "song".  It lasts about 35 min.
The idea for this album is said to have come from a movie that Neil made during one of his late 80's / early 90's tours with Crazy Horse.  He basically used the beginnings and endings of songs for the soundtrack of the movie. Neil gave Thurson Moore of Sonic Youth a copy of it and he liked the musical bits so much that he suggested to Neil that he should do a whole album like that. The result? 'Arc.'  [DGS]


Arc-Weld (10/22/91, Reprise 26746-2)

Musicians:
     Stray Gators:
       Neil Young: Guitar & Vocals
       Ben Keith:  Steel Guitar
       Kenny Buttrey:  Drums

       Spooner Oldham:  Piano

     Singers:
       Linda Ronstadt
       James Taylor
       Nicolette Larson
       Astrid Young
       Ben Keith
       Larry Cragg

Notes: This album is a pseudo-sequel to Neil's overwhelmingly successful "Harvest" album.  Most of the musicians on this album are the same ones who performed on the original "Harvest".  Spooner Oldham, Astrid Young, and Larry Cragg are exceptions.  Spooner apparently took Jack Nitzsche's place on piano.  Astrid Young (Neil's half-sister) and Larry Cragg (Neil's guitar & keyboard technician) are additional singers.  The song "Old King" is about Young's now-deceased pet dog (who was really named Elvis), which accompanied him on tour everywhere.

Notes: This is the officially released recording of Neil's MTV Unplugged performance.  This performance was recorded at Stage 12, Universal Studios, Universal City on Feb. 7, 1993.  There were 5 more songs recorded but not broadcast.  The songs left off were: Tonight's The Night (opening only, grand piano), Sample and Hold, Dreamin' Man, War Of Man, and Winterlong.  There is probably a boot of the entire concert floating around somewhere.  Also, some radio stations broadcasted a stereo simulcast, so this may surface as a boot as well - beware because you may be paying $20+ for something available commercially.
There was an earlier Unplugged performance recorded on Dec. 16, 1992 at the Ed Sullivan Theatre, NY.  Neil did several versions and false starts of almost every song and finally scrapped the concert.  The songs he did are: Love Is A Rose, Unknown Legend, From Hank To Hendrix, You and Me, Old King, Harvest Moon, War Of Man, Comes A Time, Old Man, Silver and Gold, Are You Ready For The Country, One Of These Days, Dreamin' Man, Down By The River, Last Trip To Tulsa, and After The Goldrush (pump organ) (Waterface, et al. 44).  It may also be possible to find this performance on a bootleg.
Released with this CD are VHS and Laser Disc video recordings of the show.

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

[Note:  If info credit is given to DGS in this section, this actually means that David graciously collected this information from the Neil Young mailing list and other sources.  His list of Neil Young session contributions is also available in the mailing list's FAQ, and is basically the same information.  This list is included here just to make the discography more complete.  The albums are arranged by date, but when the date was unavailable, it was simply guessed and the album ordered accordingly.]

[Note:  Please remember that this information is not guaranteed to be 100% correct.  If you buy one of these albums just to hear Neil's contribution and it turns out that he is not on the album, please do not blame us.]

She Used To Wanna Be A Ballerina (2/93, Vanguard 79311)
Buffy Sainte-Marie

Notes: Neil & Crazy Horse are credited as having played on this album, although it isn't clear on which songs. It is possible that they may have played on the whole album, although this is confused further by the fact that Danny Whitten, Ralph Molina, Billy Talbot are mentioned separately besides the Neil Young and Crazy Horse credit. Jack Nitzsche is credited with doing arrangements to several songs.  This album also includes a cover of "Helpless."[DGS]
