It was recorded in August—Septembermostly on August 26 but its release was delayed for two years. It peaked at 25 on the Billboard Tonight's the Night is a direct expression of grief. Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten and Young's friend and roadie Bruce Berry had both died of drug overdoses in the months before the songs were written.
The title track mentions Berry by name, while Whitten's guitar and vocal work highlight "Come on Baby Let's Go Downtown"; the latter was recorded live in The song would later appear, unedited, on a live album from the same concerts, Live at the Fillmore Eastwith Whitten credited as the sole author.
Fans have long speculated that an alternate version of Tonight's the Night exists. Ten years after the original recording, David Briggs and I talked about Tonight's the Nighton which he had shared the producer credit with Neil. At home a couple of weeks earlier he had come across the original tape, the one that wasn't put out. It is unrelenting. There is no relief in it at all. It does not release you for one second. Tired Eyes - Neil Young & The Santa Monica Flyers - Somewhere Under The Rainbow like some guy having you by the throat from the first note, and all the way to the end.
Neil came in during this conversation, which was in his living room. When David stopped Neil said, "You've got that original? I thought it was lost. I've never been able to find it. We'll bring it out someday, that original. The band assembled for the album was known as The Santa Monica Flyers. One track as stated above was taken from recordings of an earlier tour with Crazy Horse, and another from an earlier session with his band for Spring Nicht - Stahlmann - QuecksilberThe Stray Gators.
Included with the early original vinyl releases of Tonight's the Night is a cryptic message written by Young: "I'm sorry. You don't know these people. This means nothing to you. On the front of the insert is a letter to a character called "Waterface"; scratched into the run-out grooves on side one is the message "Hello Waterface" while the run-out grooves on side two Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes - Joseph Seal - Organ Panorama "Goodbye Waterface".
No explanation is given to this person's identity. When I read the letter, I'm Waterface. It's just a stupid thing—a suicide note without the suicide. The back of the insert has some text superimposed over the credits to Young's On the Beach album, released a year earlier.
This text is reportedly the lyrics to a Homegrown -era unreleased song titled "Florida", characterized by McDonough as "a cockamamie spoken-word dream, set to the shrieking accompaniment of either Young or [Ben] Keith drawing a wet finger around the rim of a glass.
When unfolded, a whole side of the insert features a lengthy article printed entirely in Dutch. In Young said he chose to print it "Because I didn't understand any of Tired Eyes - Neil Young & The Santa Monica Flyers - Somewhere Under The Rainbow myself, and when someone is so sickened and fucked up as I was then, everything's in Dutch anyway.
The Reprise Records label on the vinyl copy was printed in black and white rather than the standard orange color, a process Young undertook again on the CD label art for 's Sleeps with Angels.
Early editions of the sleeve were made on blotter paper. In ShakeyYoung maintains that along with the inserts there was a small package of glitter inside the sleeve that was meant to fall out "our Bowie statement"spilling when the listener took the record out. However, neither McDonough nor Young archivist Joel Bernstein have yet found a copy of Tonight's the Night featuring the glitter package. Dave Marsh wrote in the original Rolling Stone review:.
The music has a feeling of offhand, first-take crudity matched recently only by Blood on the Tracksalmost as though Young wanted us to miss its ultimate majesty in order to emphasize its ragged edge of desolation. If anything, these are the old ideas with a new sense of aggressiveness. The jitteriness of the music, its sloppy, unarranged but decidedly structured feeling is clearly calculated. The record chronicles the post-hippie, post-Vietnam demise of counterculture idealism, and a generation's long, slow trickle down the drain through drugs, violence, and twisted sexuality.
This is Young's only conceptually cohesive record, and it's a great one. Billboard United States . From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Neil Young.
