Long May You Run – Stephen Stills & Neil Young
Billboard Review
9/25/1975

 

Although unfortunately the Stills/Young tour supporting this album last month halted after a few dates because of a recurrence of Neil Young’s throat problems, at least the album itself was cut at Criteria before any problems arose. What we are left with is one of the easiest flowing and most satisfying albums by any splinter combination from the golden days of Crosby, Stills. Nash & Young.

Though quite relaxed, the album doesn’t sag in any department. Young’s contributions as a writer and singer are particularly charming and accessible, when compared to some of his darker solo work in recent years. The reunion with Stills clearly reflects as an experience bringing out lighter qualities in Young.

S-Y_LMYRFormat of the LP alternates between songs with writing and lead vocals by each of the costars, backed by smooth-running, small rhythm-section accompaniment that perfectly complements the organic smoothness of the music. Best cuts: “Long May You Run,” “Guardian Angel,” “Midnight On The Bay,” “Make Love To You.”
