Album: On The Beach. Well, we live in a trailer at the edge of town You never see us 'cause we don't come around We got twenty-five rifles Just to keep the population down But we need you now, and that's why I'm hangin' 'round So you be good to me and I'll be good to you And in this land of conditions I'm not above suspicion I won't attack you, but I won't back you Well, it's so good to be here, asleep on your lawn Remember your guard dog?
Well, I'm afraid that he's gone It was such a drag to hear him whining all night long Yes, that was me with the doves, setting them free near the factory Where you built your computer, love I hope you get the connection, 'cause I can't take the rejection I won't deceive you, I just don't believe you Well, I'm a barrel of laughs, with my carbine on I keep 'em hoppin', till my ammunition's gone But I'm still not happy I feel like there's something wrong I've got the revolution blues, I see bloody fountains And ten million dune buggies comin' down the mountains Well, I hear that Laurel Canyon is full of famous stars But I hate them worse than Lepers and I'll kill them in their cars.

On the Beach is the fifth studio album by Neil Young, released in July Recorded after but released before Tonight's the Night, On the Beach shares some of that album's bleakness and crude production—which came as a shock to fans and critics alike, as this was the long-awaited studio follow-up to the commercially and critically successful Harvest—but also included hints pointing towards a more subtle outlook, particularly on the opener, "Walk On".
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".
Electronic Folk International. Jazz Latin New Age. Aggressive Bittersweet Druggy. Energetic Happy Hypnotic. Romantic Sad Sentimental. The reasons remain murky but there is some evidence that Young himself didn't want the album out on CD, variously citing "fidelity problems" and legal issues. Beginning in , over 5, fans signed an online petition calling for the release of the album on CD.
The side closes with "Vampire Blues," a cynical attack on the oil industry. Side two of the LP version opens with "On the Beach", a bluesy meditation on the downside of fame, which has been covered by many artists including Radiohead and Golden Smog ,  and is followed by "Motion Pictures", an elegy for Young's relationship with actress Carrie Snodgress. That first record of his is epic.
It came from England, and I was especially taken by 'Needle of Death', such a beautiful and angry song. That guy was so good. I wasn't even aware of it, and someone else drew my attention to it. The line "You're all just pissing in the wind" was a direct quote from Young's manager regarding the inactivity of the quartet.
It outlived the hippie scene but closed in In , Young also released Live at the Riverboat , a live album recorded at The Riverboat in The line "Oh, Isabella, proud Isabella, They tore you down and plowed you under" references 88 Isabella Street an old rooming house in Toronto where Neil and Rick James stayed for a period. The old rooming house was demolished in the early 70s and an apartment now stands in this location.
Originally Young had intended for the A and B sides of the LP to be in reverse order but was convinced by David Briggs to swap them at the last moment. Young has said that he later came to regret caving in, although both the cassette version and 8-track versions were released with the sides swapped. Reviewing in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies , Robert Christgau wrote: "Something in [Young's] obsessive self-examination is easy to dislike and something in his whiny thinness hard to enjoy.
But even 'Ambulance Blues,' an eight-minute throwaway, is studded with great lines, one of which is 'It's hard to know the meaning of this song. Less mournful but still haunting, the album is basically Young's rejection of rock stardom and what had become of the counterculture, covering a range of subjects, including Richard Nixon and Patty Hearst the epic "Ambulance Blues" , his affair with actress Carrie Snodgrass "Motion Pictures" , and, most famously, years before it became "chic" to do so, Charles Manson the rocking "Revolution Blues".
