Topic: Zuma (1975 album)


  
  Neil Young's Zuma - Album's In Order
I realized that this album was actually recorded before On The Beach, but the music on that and the previous two albums really I felt could have led to some level of depth in which (banish the thought) Neil might not even want to record music anymore.
Zuma came out a mere 6 months after TTN (that's what releasing an album recorded 2 years previously can do for you) and I think there was something in Neil's muse that compelled him to put this out.
Zuma had a great effect on me. Whereas the previous three albums had painted pictures of increasing despair, this one cried out in hopefulness, and it was a statement that Neil Young still had much to say lyrically and mucically.

 Neil Young - MSN Encarta
In 1975 he produced both Tonight's the Night and Zuma, which were critically praised although less successful commercially.
Young followed with a number of recordings for Reprise, including the hard-rock albums Freedom (1989) and Ragged Glory (1990); Harvest Moon (1992), a country-music successor to Harvest; and MTV Unplugged (1993), performed with acoustic instruments.
In 1994 he released an album, Sleeps With Angels, which dealt with the suicide of young rock artist Kurt Cobain.

 purevolume™ | Zuma
Their inspiration for this came not only from their shared fondness for the album, but also from the musical philosophy the album demonstrates, a philosophy emphasising the importance of delivering beautifully crafted, tuneful songs in a colourful and honest way.
Zuma's conception took place when, due to shared musical tastes and values, Chris, Steve, and James decided to bond their friendship into a band.
The completion of the bands line-up was marked by the arrival of Tim in late 2005, and thus Zuma was born.

 HyperRust: FUNHOUSE! "Zuma" Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Zuma is the first record with the current and long-standing version of Crazy Horse (Billy Talbot - bass, Ralph Molina - drums, and Frank Sampedro - guitar).
Previous Crazy Horse collaborations had power, but Zuma is the beginning of the balance of raw playing and a clean sound, featuring a perfectly balanced interplay between the two guitars.
Zuma signals their return, and this record introduces the sound that gives Neil his "Godfather of Grunge" title.

Easily the moodiest album in a career not lacking in that quality, ZUMA is a swirling, hypnotic current that drags you into river of self-doubt, bitterness and fear.
Although this may be a perfect album of Neil Young songs, at 37 minutes it seems to end too soon sometimes.
It is a darkly energetic and dreamy album of country/pop tunes.

Most of these heavy rockers are isolated on the first album, with the second half of Physical Graffiti sounding a little like a scrap heap of experiments, jams, acoustic workouts, and neo-covers.
The 1997 Australian re-release of the Crazy Horse album Crazy Moon is quite a find for fans of the band, as well as for admirers of Neil Young.
An excellent set of material energized by the return of the pleasingly abrasive vocals of Deke Leonard; it charted nearly as well as Back Into the Future, and its tighter composition means that in many ways it's held up better over the years.

A bald eagle carrying a naked lady, a pyramid surrounded by cacti, some mountains, a blazing sun, and a perfectly round hole in the ground with a middle finger sticking out of it.
Zuma also includes the original studio versions of "Cortez The Killer" and "Barstool Blues," which sound exactly as if they were recorded at one of Crazy Horse's glorious, rambling live shows.
It's a fitting closer for an album whose most memorable theme is rejuvenation.

 CMT.com : Neil Young : Neil Young: The Nashville Sessions
Young's first solo album for the label, the self-titled Neil Young, kicked off with a country instrumental titled "The Emperor of Wyoming," a light-hearted ditty emphasizing the fiddle and Young's twangy Gretsch guitar sound set to a country backbeat.
Among the stand-out cuts on the album were "Human Highway," "Goin' Back" and "Peace of Mind," all beautifully executed songs with poignant, well-crafted, timeless lyrics.
This album perhaps best exemplifies Young's attempt to recreate the music of the Nashville Sound era that he found so appealing in those Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison recordings.

 Neil Young
Their album ''Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere'' (May 1969) -- credited to "Neil Young and Crazy Horse" -- was recorded in just two weeks, and is dominated by two lengthy jams, "Cowgirl in the Sand" and "Down by the River", both of which showcased the understanding between the musicians and Young's idiosyncratic guitar soloing.
The album was a commercial breakthrough, aided by his new-found fame as a member of the supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (CSN&Y, with whom he performed at Woodstock), having been invited to join as a foil for Stills.
The accompanying albums ''Rust Never Sleeps'' (new material, recorded in front of a live audience but essentially a studio album) and ''Live Rust'' (a mixture of old and new, and a genuine live record) captured the two sides of the concerts.

And in addition to contributing to Young's 1970 album, After the Gold Rush, Crazy Horse also landed a separate deal with Reprise, recording a self-titled album that was released in 1971.
The band was augmented by guitarist/vocalist Nils Lofgren and keyboardist/producer Jack Nitzsche for this album, which included such songs as "Gone Dead Train," "Beggar's Day" and "I Don't Want to Talk About It," which was covered by Rod Stewart a few years later.
Beginning with the 1975 album, Zuma, a series of unannounced shows at Northern California coastal bars and the 1976 tours of Japan, Europe, then America, Neil Young and Crazy Horse re-established a deep brotherhood.

 IGN: Greendale 2nd Edition Review
Greendale is an epic--in a manner of speaking—concept album that not only encompasses the music on the CD and the extensive, story form liner notes, but also a long form video/movie/musical novel.
The somewhat non-linear story, mapped out by each of the songs, revolves around the Greens, who reside on the "Double E." Father Earl is a painter, Daughter Sun is a rebellious teen, Grandpa is a relic from the past, and Jed who ends up killing Carmichael, a local policeman and eventually sparks a media frenzy.
The album begins with "Falling From Above," which is driven by a skirling guitar shift that wrangles and swerves underneath Young's craggy, cracking vocals as he introduces some of the main characters from the town of Greendale.

 Zuma by Neil Young CD
The album is mostly electric but there are two great acoustic songs as well.
Think of this album as a "transition" period for Uncle Neil and Crazy Horse; power guitars to carry you back in time in "Cortez the Killer", and sweet throwback harmonies to soothe in "Pardon My Heart".
Truly a superb album, up there with "Rust Never Sleeps", "On the beach" (why is this not available on CD?!?!), "Comes a time", "Silver and gold", "Tonight's the night", and "Harvest".

It's been overshadowed in Young's discography by better-selling records, but he never cut a better disc.

I don't care how much Gary Brooker denies it, the last few P. Harum albums have sounded particularly re-cycled because he and Reid have a tendency to structure all their songs the same way.
In 1975 everything was well timed, but the album was simply not very good.
And while Procol Harum had made what must be their worst album ever, the music scene in the US and Britain was rapidly changing.
