After The Gold Rush

Music by Neil Young

Originally Performed by Neil Young and Crazy Horse

"After the Gold Rush" is a song written, composed, and performed by Neil Young and is the title song from the 1970 album of the same name. In addition to After the Gold Rush, it also appears on Decade, Greatest Hits, and Live Rust.

The song consists of three verses, two of which describe dream visions involving Mother Nature. The three verses move forward in time from the past (a medieval celebration with the sun floating on the breeze), to the present (the singer lying, distressed, in bed with the full moon in his eyes when there is a nuclear bomb explosion ie sunburst), and, finally, the future (spaceships transporting the chosen ones to a new home in the sun). The theme of the sun links all three verses. On the original recording, in addition to Young's vocals, two instruments are used in the song: a piano and a french horn. The french horn solo in the middle of the song is often replaced by a harmonica solo by Young in live performances. The line "Look at Mother Nature on the run / In the 1970s" has been amended by Young in concert over the decades and is currently sung as "Look at Mother Nature on the run / in the 21st century."

Various Arrangers : Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young A Cappella

Here is the 1970 pop hit by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young "Teach Your Children" in an a cappella setting that is fresh and unique! Rhythmically free and expansive, the melody harmonized in triads is juxtaposed against long accompanying vocal lines to highlight the powerful message inherent in the text. The Crosby, Stills and Nash song from their debut 1969 album "Helplessly Hoping" translates perfectly to the signature vocal style of the King's Singers. "After The Gold Rush" is the haunting song by Neil Young in a richly expressive a cappella setting. Audiences love these pop classics and great for the parents to sing along with.
