If you love hearing INTO a recording, actually being able to "see" the performers, and feeling as if you are sitting in the studio with the band, this is the record for you. It's what vintage all analog recordings are known for -- this sound. If you exclusively play modern repressings of vintage recordings, I can say without fear of contradiction that you have never heard this kind of sound on vinyl.
Old records have it -- not often, and certainly not always -- but maybe one out of a hundred new records do, and those are some pretty long odds. Less grit - smoother and sweeter sound, something that is not easy to come by on Hawks and Doves. A bigger presentation - more size, more space, more room for all the instruments and voices to occupy. The bigger the speakers you have to play this record the better. More bass and tighter bass.
This is fundamentally a pure rock record. It needs weight down low to rock the way Glyn Johns wanted it to. Usually dispatched within 1 to 4 weeks. Only 8 left in stock more on the way.

Although I'm a huge fan of early 70s Neil Young, I'd always been under the impression from other reviews etc that the quality of his albums dropped off in the 80s, so had avoided anything after the Live Rust era.
I recently heard a bit of Hawks and Doves by chance and instantly knew I needed to have it in my collection. Its a short album, only 9 songs long and is split distinctly between what would have been side 1 and side 2 on a vinyl lp.
Side 1 - slow, simple melody acoustic songs like Neil does best. My favourite being 'Lost in Space' - even with some slightly odd lyrics. Side 2 - up tempo, country tinged singalong songs the likes of 'Union Man'. These songs seem pretty political about the state of the US in the early 80s but I don't know much about that, I just know they've got great hooks!
Highly recommended. Great seller. Great CD. Would recommend them and would use them again. Lost in Space. Captain Kennedy. Stayin' Power. Union Man. Comin' Apart at Every Nail.
