INFORMATION OM PRODUKTEN
Peace Trail features all new songs that Young wrote since the release of his album EARTH, and recorded within a short time span. The album is primarily acoustic and reflects an intimate, sparse approach that draws the listening into the heart of the songs in a personal way. Each song is rich with Young's typically inviting lyrical expression of his inimitable impassioned and heartfelt life-long humanitarian concerns which remain as topical and timely as ever.
Peace Trail was recorded at Rick Rubin's Shangri- la Studios and features Young on vocals and guitar, Jim Keltner on drums, and Paul Bushnell on bass. It was produced by Young and John Hanlon, mixed by John Hanlon. Most recently Young previewed five songs from the album during his performances during the Desert Trip Festival, in Indio, CA. last week which both Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly summed up as simply "explosive." "Neil slashed and bashed at his guitar, the sound intense and nearly out of control." - Rolling Stone
The Los Angeles Times called Young's performance "intensely powerful," "furious" and concluded, "combining passion, energy and stinging content, Young served up a deeply rewarding performance."
