Booklist

“Voyageur Press books always look like a million bucks, and this coffee-table career biography of enduring sixties rock star Young is no exception. Even the dullest old snap shot of kid Neil’s family or his first band lushly glows from matte pages as if printed on silk. And those pages! Seldom allowed to be merely white, they are colored and loosely patterned when not entirely filled by a photo. As rock photo books emphasizing the subject, not the photographer(s), go, this is a honey…scads will love browsing it.”



MOJO
It seems strange it took this long for a Neil Young coffee table book to appear. It’s almost a no-brainer, given past similar tomes on Bob Dylan and Van Morrison. Dylan, in fact, dominates one of this book’s early sidebars (Neil & The Dylan Domain). Also included are side trips into the Lynyrd Skynyrd ‘feud, the brief Motown tenure and family ties. There are testimonials, first-source quotes from David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, various Crazy Horse dudes and the kooky old codger himself. Visually, Voyageur does the same excellent job here as has in the past with Led Zeppelin and Queen projects. And if young isn’t as photogenic or flashy as those two, his chameleon-like nature is fully exploited, alongside such rare images as the artist aged two and in high school. (8 out of 10)



Classic Rock
Realizing that the slim chances of Young going through his personal treasure trove for public consumption anytime soon, Graff and Drucholz have taken matters capably in hand….Voyageur Press’s high production values provide the ace in the hole. The beautifully designed layout, studded with the foreign record sleeves and tour posters, show Neil as central to the living embodiment of the ongoing evolution of West Coast art.
Exhaustive picture research stretches back to his schooldays with The Squires and his short-lived hook up with Rick James in The Mynah Birds, and there are sections on everything from his movies to female accomplices, family members and trust les Paul guitar Old Black. Terrific. (8 out of 10).”
Lithium Magazine, August 12, 2010
“Canada’s legendary rocker Neil Young is paid homage by means of the first-ever complete illustrated history. This stunning hard cover book is perfect to adorn your coffee table or rev up your Neil Young library…If you’re a true Neil Young fan this book is a definite must see. Daniel and Gary master the meticulous task of both a written and visual documentary celebrating Neil’s legacy.”



Thrasher’s Wheat

“Neil Young: Long May You Run: The Illustrated History by veteran rock journalists Daniel Durchholz and Gary Graff is -- without a doubt -- pretty much of an essential item for the Neil Young library. The first impression one gets from leafing through the pages is the high quality of the printing and presentation by the publisher Voyageur Press. It's a coffee table type of book with 224 large pages, nice grade paper stock, and fine reproductions of photos and memorablia. It would seem that for even those Neil fans who've read everything from Jimmy McDonough's Shakey: A Neil Young Biography to the Neil Young Archives book will find something new and eye catching in The Illustrated History….the book will certainly hold a lot of surprises and revelations for the more casual fan. In fact this is the type of book you hand someone who says "I just don't get Neil Young."



Maxim.com

This 224-page tome, painstakingly assembled by rock journalists Daniel Durchholz and Gary Graff, compiles tons of photos (many never before seen) and detailed insights on grunge godfather Neil Young's seven-decade spanning career. From his earliest days with the Mynah Birds (a band that also featured Rick James!), to his hit-making days with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, to his genre-hopping solo works, to his current status as an activist and vital living legend (you can catch him on tour all summer long), Long May You Run leaves no stone (or riff) unturned.

The Huffington Post

Flipping through Long May You Run: The Illustrated History -- a picture perfect documentation of Neil Young's musical story and beyond -- is the equivalent of listening to his music in an altered state. At times, it can be overwhelming. Daniel Durchholz and Gary Graff's love of Young as a person and his cultural contributions is the force of nature behind LMYR's lush 224 pages, the team effectively creating one of the best coffee table books ever. You want rare and vintage photos? Check. Reproductions of classic posters and various memorabilia? Check. A precise discography that includes 41 studio and 6 live albums, plus discussions of Young's music by his contemporaries and notable connoisseurs? Of course, it's all here.

Durchholz and Graff's hard cover documentary anthologizes virtually every important moment from Neil Young's Buffalo Springfield tenure (actually, earlier) through his days with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, his solo career, and beyond….if you've forgotten any of the reasons why he remains this important an icon, check out virtually any page of LMYR for your mandatory memory jog as you savor each visual of this perfect tutorial on more than 40 years of Young's long run.

Guitar Aficionado

Billed as an illustrated history, this oversized tome packs more than 400 striking images into its 224 pages. Written and compiled by rock journalists Daniel Du

Kurzbeschreibung

Neil Young has been described as brilliant, cantankerous, enigmatic, and vexing. Regardless, his generation-spanning fan base and his profound musical influence cannot be denied. While a number of narrative titles have chronicled Neil Young in one manner or another, this is the first illustrated history to span his 41 studio albums, 6 live releases, and 40-plus years as a recording and touring musician. From Young's earliest days in the Canadian rock scene through his tenures with Buffalo Springfield and CSNY and on to his varied solo career, each aspect of the musician's career is covered. Photography from rock photographers of the 1960s to the present, as well as concert posters and memorabilia from around the world, are complemented by commentary from notable musicians around the world and a discography.

Von junior-soprano TOP 500 REZENSENT VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Mehr als die Hälfte der Fotos in diesem Bildband/ dieser Biografie kannte ich bereits, teils aus anderen Büchern, teils aus anderen Quellen. Auch die Infos, von Kindheit über Squires über Buffalo Springfield, Crazy Horse, CSN&Y bis hin zum LincVolt kannte ich ebenfalls. Dennoch ist Neil Young: Long may you run - The illustrated History ein ausgesprochen schönes, empfehlenswertes Buch, natürlich besonders für Fans. Durchgängig farbig, 224 gebundene Seiten und eine schicke Goldprägung auf dem Cover - dieses Buch sollte dieses Jahr unter dem Weihnachtsbaum jedes Rusties liegen! Vielleicht gar neben den Archives Vol. 2?
Die Geffen-Klage, technische Infos zu Old Black, Lionel Trains, die Fehde mit Lynyrd Skynyrd (amüsant: Skynyrd-Sänger Ronnie van Zant im Tonight's the night Shirt), Kent State u.v.m. - die Artikel sind sauber recherchiert und spannend zu lesen. Es gibt überreichlich Fotos von Auftritten, Plattencover, Memorabilia etc. Besonders gefreut hat mich das Foto von Kurt Cobain und eine Würdigung seiner Person, sowie erklärende Worte zum fatalen It's better to burn out than to fade away.
Eine besondere Pracht sind die zahlreichen Konzert-Poster. Schön sind auch zwei Fotos von Scott Youngs Büchern. Sehr gelungen sind auch die Illustrationen von Peter Pontiac, besonders gut hat mir seine Cortez Zeichnung gefallen. Lobende Worte von Musiker-Kollegen wie Aerosmiths Joe Perry, Jason Mraz u.a. waren mir bislang noch nicht bekannt.
Sixty to zero bleibt die beste Neil Young Biographie. Long may you run ist der neue Referenz-Bildband!

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Dieses Buch ist eine einzige Liebeserklärung an Neil Young! Ich habe einige Bücher über NY, aber auch über viele andere Musiker, aber nie hatte ich ein so liebevoll aufgemachtes in der Hand. Da kann allenfalls noch Dylans Scrapbook mithalten. Die Unmenge an Postern, Tickets und anderer NY-Memorabilia, die dort in exzellenter Qualität abgedruckt ist, umspannt die gesamte Karriere Neil Youngs. Der Text (in Englisch) liefert nichts wesentlich Neues, aber auch kein Blabla, sondern ist ein gutes Dokument der Laufbahn eines der einflußreichsten Musikers der letzten 50 Jahre. Einzelne Exkurse liefern Informationen über die verschiedenen Ausflüge Youngs in diverse Bands und Aktionen, von Buffalo Springfield über CSNY bis zur Bridge School und Pearl Jam. Angereichert wird das Ganze mit vielen Kommentaren prominenter Zeitgenossen, Mitmusiker und Kollegen. Fotos, Texte und Dokumente sind chronologisch sortiert, so daß sich einerseits ein guter Überblick ergibt, man andererseits schnell mal eine bestimmte Episode nachschlagen kann. Wer Neil-Young-Fan ist, sollte sich diesen Augenschmaus nicht entgehen lassen. Und wer Fan werden möchte, sollte neben der Musik auch dieses Buch ansehen. Es hilft ungemein. "Long may you run" ist nicht zuletzt ein Super-Geschenktipp für alle, die einen NY-Fan im Bekanntenkreis oder in der Familie haben. Da kann man einfach nichts falsch machen!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein wahres Schmuckstück für Neil Young Fans 5. Oktober 2010
Von Martinez
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Es gibt ja mittlerweile bereits einiges über Neil Young zu lesen und anzuschauen. Daniel Durchholz & Gary Graff haben das Angebot mit diesem Werk aber um ein prächtiges Exemplar bereichert. Kompakte, informative Texte geschmückt mit, teilweise, noch nicht gesehenen Bildern. Interessant auch die Konzertplakate und Plattencover.
Schön finde ich auch das Format - ECHT PRIMA !!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must-have for any Neil Young fan! 19. Juni 2010
Von Deanokat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Long May You Run is, quite simply, a must-have for any Neil Young fan. Authors Daniel Durchholz and Gary Graff have done a magnificent job of chronicling Mr. Young's career, and the format of this book is very accessible and visually stunning.

The main section of the book consists of eight chapters that cover specific periods of Young's career (for example, "The Gold Rush, 1968-1972"). The material here is truly a delight, whether you sit down and read the chapters in order or just pick up the book and enjoy pages at random. The photos--many of them rare--are breathtaking, and the shots of concert posters, tickets, memorabilia, and "all things Neil Young" are lots of fun to look at. Also very enjoyable are the many feature essays within the chapters ("Train of Love: Travels on the Lionel Line," "Cowgirls in the Sand: Neil Young's Female Collaborators," and "Aerosmith's Joe Perry on Neil Young," to name just a few).

Following the eight main chapters, you get a wealth of additional information. First off is a comprehensive four-part discography, which includes Young's work as a band member or solo artist; singles; work as a guest artist; and tribute albums. Then comes a selected filmography, a terrific guide to Neil's primary sidemen, and a list of resources. Great stuff, for sure.

The icing on the cake, though, is the incredible presentation of everything. Voyageur Press gets an A++ for their beautiful, aesthetically pleasing design. Every page of this book is like a work of art, making it a tome you'll want to leave out on your coffee table for everyone to enjoy. Kudos to Durchholz, Graff, and Voyageur Press for a job well done! If you're a Neil Young fan, you must have this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen nicely executed 29. April 2010
Von Ed Guy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Durchholz, Graff, and their editors have produced a fresh and interesting package on an incredible artist. Neil being Neil, any author would be hard-pressed to come up with fresh info, but it seems to me this book is greater than even the sum of its considerably many parts, offering an expansive collection of imagery presented on thoughtfully designed pages, not to mention the fact that the text doesn't descend into hagiography, calling into question releases, decisions, etc. that deserve to be called into question. That's something "coffee-table books" often fail to do. Barring Neil putting out something besides next fall's re-release of the fabulous book that was already included in NYA1, this is about the best we're gonna get when it comes to a solid illustrated Neil book covering his entire career. I was tempted to knock a star off for the annoying pixilation visible on the circles around the photo on the front cover (the devil's in the details, eh?), but that would seem capricious.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Impressive overview of Neil Young's career 28. Juli 2010
Von DJ Joe Sixpack - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Neil Young: Long May You Run: The Illustrated History"
Written by Daniel Durchholz & Gary Graff
(Voyageur Press, 2010)
---------------------------------------------
This is an impressive, lavishly designed coffee-table book devoted to the career of rock iconoclast Neil Young, from his early garage-rock roots in Canada through his LA rockstar years and more recent elevation to grunge-rock elder. The book mixes a linear historical narrative with sidebars about various feuds, love affairs and creative ventures, as well as testimonials from numerous musicians who express their appreciation for Young's talent and artistic integrity. There are also copious photographs and an astonishing array of Neil Young memorabilia -- ticket stubs, showbills, concert posters, highschool photos and other obscure items -- all drawn together in a well-designed graphic format. Predictably, the writing lapses into rock journalism formulae, but nonetheless I found it cogent and engaging -- I hadn't expected to read the book from start to finish, but was pleasantly pulled in, and certainly learned a lot about Young's career and creative arcs. (He was a Reaganite conservative in the 1980s? Who woulda thunk it?) It's a very good overview of a very complicated person, and is fairly honest and critical in its appraisal of his artistic triumphs and shortfalls.

This book will inevitably be compared to Jimmy McDonough's 2003 biography, "Shakey" (which I haven't read) but I don't think there's any need for a competition between the two; this tome is impressive in its own right, and will definitely please many a fan, particularly with the strong visual design and extensive archival materials. Check it out. (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue book reviews)

3.0 von 5 Sternen Got it mostly right 22. April 2010
Von Old Black - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Okay - I am a serious Neil Young fan and came on this almost by accident. I must say, for the most part, this is a really good book with great pictures and a nice complement to Jimmy Mc's book "Shakey" and the Archives V 1. The casual fan will learn something but the serious fan - probably not.

The discussion of "Old Black" - Neil's 53 LP (and probably the most iconic guitar in rock history) has factual errors without citation (come on, guys! - reference your sources!). For example, the authors say that the middle round chrome cover on the back of Neil's guitar is so that Neil or Larry Cragg can adjust the intonnation. How can that be? As someone who has made a replica of Old Black (and other LPs), I can tell you that this is not how you would adjust the intonation - that's what the ABR bridge is for. Also, almost no discussions on his amps or effects.

I don't believe NY had anything to do with this book (I mean, why would he?)

So, who is this book for? The casual fan - yeah - they would like it. The serious fan - you'll probably want it cause you bought everything else. But it's all old Field of Opportunity being plowed here. Gotta say though, I do like the pictures and the book is set up nice. We need a Joel Bernstein to really do a definitive NY book (which of course, he won't - not yet, anyway - that guy is so anal about the details).
