Neil Young boasted of steering his career into the ditch in the early 1970s, choosing to make sad, lonely, difficult records in the wake of Harvest ’s wide success. The Ditch Trilogy (as Young enthusiasts dubbed it) of Time Fades Away, Tonight’s the Night , and On the Beach marks his creative peak-yet for decades, this era was neglected and incomplete. On the Beach only made it to CD in 2003, and Time Fades Away was never reissued digitally. In Waging Heavy Peace, Young’s 2012 memoir, the 1973 live album is mentioned exactly twice, which is approximately 1,000 times fewer than his electric Lincoln and his Pono music service. Even when major missing pieces of his ’70s catalog were patched in 2003, Time Fades Away was left to rot in the archives.
