Information

On the Beach is the fifth studio album by Neil Young, released in July 1974. On the Beach was not a commercial success at the time of its release but over time attained a high regard from fans and critics alike. The album was recorded in a haphazard manner, with Young utilizing a variety of session musicians, and often changing their instruments while offering only bare-bones arrangements for them to follow. He also would opt for rough, monitor mixes of songs rather than a more polished sound, alienating his sound engineers in the process. Throughout the recording of the album, Young and his fellow musicians consumed a homemade concoction dubbed “Honey Slides”, a goop of sauteed marijuana and honey that “felt like heroin”. This may account for the mellow mood of the album, particularly the second half of the LP. Young has said of it “Good album. One side of it particularly—the side with ‘Ambulance Blues’, ‘Motion Pictures’ and ‘On the Beach’—it’s out there. It’s a great take.”
