Time Fades Away was the first live album released by Neil Young. He is backed on the album by The Stray Gators, the band who played on Harvest,and including the superb musicians Ben Keith, Jack Nitzsche, and Tim Drummond. David Crosby and Graham Nash are special guest musicians. The album followed the release of Young's hugely successful album Harvest, and when it was released in 1973 it featured all previously unreleased songs. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this album the track "The Last Trip To Tulsa" (originally released as a B-side to the 1973 single of "Time Fades Away") has been added to the album. This limited-edition LP is pressed on clear vinyl.

From Neil:

"Time Fades Away is taken from a tour in 1973, a tough time to go on the road, right after the death of Danny Whitten. With me on the tour, Ben Keith, Jack Nitzsche, Tim Drummond and Kenny Buttrey made up this wonderful band of musicians. Johnny Barbata joined the tour half way through down near New Orleans, and he can be heard playing drums throughout this recording. Johnny was originally from the Turtles. The tour was about 3 months and it was my very first big tour, traveling throughout the USA and parts of Canada, playing full sized arenas with between 15 and 19 thousand people in the audience. We had never done this before and neither had many other people. Our PA was lifted on towers on either side of the stage, not like today's tours where everything hangs from the ceiling of the building. The monitors, which were to allow me to hear what I was singing, were not big enough and I had to sing very loud just to hear myself. Again, no one had done this before at the time and we were blazing some new ground in 1973. You can hear it in my voice. We played a lot of Harvest songs on the tour but I wanted to make a live album of new material. That is what Time Fades Away is. It was not well received, much less popular than many of my previous records, but I did do what I wanted to do and that was the most important thing to me. Elliot Mazer produced and did a great job in the truck we carried to all the shows. Some of the already known songs we did on the tour were released many years later on Tuscaloosa (which features Kenny Buttrey on drums). The whole tour was stressful and Time Fades Away does reflect that. I am still uncomfortable hearing it even today, though I still hear from a people who liked it. Thank goodness for these die-hard fans!"

Shipping, Returns & Cancellations


We ship Monday through Friday. Orders typically ship within 24-72 hours. Tracking is sent to the email you provide at check out and may take a few days to become active.

Any items ordered with Pre-Orders will be held until they can all ship together. If you need in stock items faster please order them seperately.


Returns are only accepted on damaged or defective items. Return requests must be made within 7 days of delivery. Please save the original packaging.

If you own a Crosley, Victrola or any other lower end turntable that has no ability to adjust the weight of the tone arm and are experiencing skipping on a new record please try the "Penny Trick". Simply place a penny on the top of the cartidge and it should provide enough weight to resolve your issues. While a great entry to the world of vinyl we do recommend upgrading to a turntable with a tone arm that can be adjusted as this issue will randomly occur. We do not take returns in these cases.

Resellers: If you are buying from us for resale we honestly don't mind. However, please don't panic if something you bought suddenly isn't flipable for more money and then try to return stuff to us because you feel like you made a bad investment choice. Despite our outsized reputation we're a small shop, not amazon. Absorbing these costs adds up on places like ours. Plus a little patience always tends to pay off.


Due to an increasing number of payment processors no longer returning transaction fees to sellers on cancelled orders and rising labor costs any orders or pre-orders that need to be cancelled before shipment will be assessed a 5% cancellation/restocking fee on the order total including shipping and any other taxes or fees associated with the order.

Thank you for your understanding.
