1975 Album Reissued On Vinyl LP!

Neil Young's seventh studio album, which was recorded with Crazy Horse, was released in 1975 and features the song "Cortez the Killer". The album peaked at #25 on the Billboard 200.

The unique album cover of Neil Young’s Zuma was sketched in less than 10 minutes by James Mazzeo in 1975—he was paid $2,000. It is a ballpoint-pen rendition of a bird and a naked lady and a cactus giving "the bird." The album name is a nod to Zuma Beach, Los Angeles, where Young owned a home.

"... the music had a lively sound well-suited to the songs, which were some of the most melodic, pop-oriented tunes Young had crafted in years, though they were played with an electric-guitar-drenched rock intensity. The overall theme concerned romantic conflict, with lyrics that lamented lost love and sometimes longed for a return ('Pardon My Heart' even found Young singing, 'I don't believe this song'), though the overall conclusion, notably in such catchy songs as 'Don't Cry No Tears' and 'Lookin' For A Love,' was to move on to the next relationship. But the album's standout track (apparently the only holdover from an early intention to present songs with historical subjects) was the seven-and-a-half-minute epic 'Cortez the Killer,' a commentary on the Spanish conqueror of Latin America that served as a platform for Young's most extensive guitar soloing since his work on Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere." - William Ruhlmann,
