Time Fades Away is a 1973 live album by Neil Young, consisting of previously unreleased material. It was Young's first live album, and was recorded with The Stray Gators on the tour following 1972's highly successful Harvest and has not been reissued on CD due to Young's dissatisfaction with that particular series of concerts.

The sad part is there are a lot of good songs on that LP. Radio stations will play 'Don't Be Denied', but there's 'Journey Thru The Past', 'Love In Mind' & another that I can't recall.
I have a version from 'Roaring Mouse' label I bought in 2003 that has both 'Time Fades Away' & 'On the Beach' on 1 CD-R (before the latter was re-issued). They used the original LP covers. One on front, other on the back. When listening to it you can hear that the sound is from an LP. No skips & an enjoyable listening experience.

Never Officially released on CD-cause Neil wants it that way! When describing his thoughts about releasing the LP at the time, he claims he wanted to use the shittiest material available for the sleeve so it would decompose quickly..Gotta love Neil Young.
