Freedom is the 17th studio album by Canadian musician Neil Young, released on October 2, 1989. Freedom effectively relaunched Young's career after a largely unsuccessful decade. After many arguments (and a lawsuit), Young left Geffen Records in 1988 and returned to his original label, Reprise, with This Note's for You. Freedom, however, brought about a new, critical and commercially successful album. This album was released in the United States as an LP record, cassette tape, and CD in 1989.
Filmed in Jones Beach, NY, and at The Palladium in New York City on September 5 and 6, 1989.
Freedom was Young's return to form after almost a decade of electronic experiments and mediocre novelty music. Rockin' in the Free World," a howling anthem about homelessness, depression, and drug dealing, bookends the album-and, in 1989, proved the singer/songwriter hadn't completely dropped into obscurity. Exclusively for Prime members.
Album · 1989 · 12 Songs. The album signaled an upcoming renaissance for Young’s public profile as the godfather of grunge.
Subtitled "A Live Acoustic Concert," the Freedom video is a 30-minute, seven-song performance taped September 5 and 6, 1989, its first two songs, "Crime in the City" and "This Note's for You," drawn from Neil Young's show at Jones Beach on Long Island, and the remaining five from a show at the Palladium in Manhattan the following night. Too Far Gone" features Ben Keith on dobro and backup vocals, and Frank Sampedro on mandolin, and Young plays piano on "After the Gold Rush.
