Journey Through the Past is a soundtrack album from the film of the same name by Neil Young, released in November of 1972 on Reprise Records, catalogue 0698. It peaked at #45 on the Billboard 200, and since its initial release on vinyl and cassette tape, it has remained out of print. It has never been issued on compact disc, and is one of the rarest items in Young's discography.

Content

Journey features music mainly from four sources: television broadcasts with Buffalo Springfield; live recordings with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; rehearsal outtakes from the Harvest sessions with The Stray Gators; and recordings by The Tony and Susan Alamo Christian Foundation Orchestra and Chorus. It functions in part as a retrospective of Young's work, the first of his career.

Side one, tracks one and two are performed by Buffalo Springfield. The medley on track one are studio recordings, including a rare alternate version of "Mr. Soul," mimed to by the group for the television program The Hollywood Palace on January 20, 1967. The second selection derives from the group's appearance in 1967 on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Side one, tracks three and four, and side two, track one, are live recordings by CSNY from an appearance at the Fillmore Eastmarker in New York Citymarker on June 5, 1970.

The Harvest album outtakes on side two, tracks two and four, and side three derive from sessions on September 26 and 27, 1971 at Young's ranch in La Hondamarker, Californiamarker. Interspersed are conversations with Young, David Crosby, and Stephen Stills from the vocal overdub sessions done later in New York.

Side four, tracks two and three, respectively an excerpt from Messiah by George Frederic Handel and the musical theme composed by Miklós Rózsa for the film King of Kings, are performed by the Tony and Susan Alamo Christian Foundation Orchestra and Chorus, recorded on February 10, 1972.

The album contains only one new song by Young, "Soldier," recorded in a sawmill to the accompaniment of a roaring fire from a sawdust burner. It would later reappear in edited form on Young's Decade compilation. The record closes on side four strangely enough with a track from the 1966 classic album Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys, the instrumental "Let's Go Away for Awhile."
