Long May You Run" Track Info. Written By Neil Young.
Long May You Run is not a Neil Young solo album. Like Young, Stills had seen his record sales decline after a successful period following the 1970 breakup of CSNY. The pairing, though it proved short-lived and had, in fact, ended before this album was released, must have seemed commercially logical.
In 1976, Stephen Stills and Neil Young formed The Stills-Young Band and released an album called Long May You Run, which turned out to be somewhat ironic when the collaboration quickly stalled. Stills and Young wrote separately for the album, which Stephen contributing four songs, and Young adding five, including the title track. Stills is a longtime collaborator of Neil's, having worked with him first in Buffalo Springfield and then in Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
Long May You Run. Critic Score. Clearly Young & Stills had a fixation on the islands. My guess is that it had tons to do with drugs. And, given Still's penchant for 'blow' I'm guessing. Or consider a donation?
