Go To

Rust Never Sleeps, released in 1979, is the second live album by Neil Young, and could also be called his tenth studio album. That is, it was mostly recorded live and complemented with studio overdubs, and it introduced a set of new songs in the way a studio album traditionally does. Young had been working on these songs for years, but in final form, some of them are influenced by Punk Rock. Featuring Crazy Horse, Young’s band of True Companions, Rust Never Sleeps has consistently been ranked as one of Young’s best albums and one of the best of The '70s. The album was listed at #351 in Rolling Stone's Rolling Stone: 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
