My version of this one has the right runout matrix, but the labels are black and I bought it in the U.S. Weird...

Hello. I just found this promo copy at a local store and it has everything included (promo sticker on cover, original sleeve, insert and the promo label on the record). I see another guy selling it for $115 and is missing most of the items mentioned above. Would anyone be able to estimate the value of this? The records is at least a VG with a few hairlines and the cover is also at least a VG with the normal shelf ware (no split seams). The sleeve and insert look great as well. I plan on keeping this around for a little while and have some good times with it but if it’s worth a pretty penny, I will consider selling sometime. It seems pretty rare as I only see one person selling it anywhere on the internet… Thanks!

Phenomenal 'in-the-room' recording, mastering & pressing. Incredible bass response on this LP as well. If you find one, buy it.

I think this repress sounds really good. Great details that serve the music well. One of his best from the 70's.

Terrible pressing. Sounds good but the gatefold has fallen apart after merely 1 or 2 weeks on the shelf. Bad glue. Really frustrating when they charge premium for the reissue.

Tonight's the Night is the sixth studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young, released in 1975 on Reprise Records.
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 1970. The song would later appear, unedited, on a live album from the same concerts, Live at the Fillmore East, with Whitten credited as the sole author.

I'm not the world's greatest Neil Young scholar but I've read quite a bit to suggest this is one of his best albums, probably due to circumstances and the lyrics they reflect. However I feel the album is too threadbare, the melodies too 'average' (nothing of rare beauty here) and the performance energy neither ragged, grungy nor forceful enough to stir me much. 'On the Beach', 'Ragged Glory' '.. Goldrush' plus quite a few other albums showcase more of this man's talent. Average, but worth having all the same, we are talking about Neil Young after all! Oh and a little advice for whingey rock stars.. If you are tired of fame and unimpressed with the 'music biz' and helicopter rides to your own gigs, quit carping and go do something else with your time (or write a song of course!)
