Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 311/500!

Music for the 1974 release On The Beach was actually recorded after the song list for Tonight's the Night but was released before that album which was released in 1975.

On the Beach shares some of the bleakness from the Tonight's the Night which was created out of grief from the loss of a friend and roadie.

"...On the Beach was savage and, ultimately, triumphant. 'I'm a vampire, babe,' Young sang, and he proceeded to take bites out of various subjects: threatening the lives of the stars who lived in L.A.'s Laurel Canyon ('Revolution Blues'; answering back to Lynyrd Skynyrd, whose 'Sweet Home Alabama' had taken him to task for his criticisms of the South in 'Southern Man' and 'Alabama' ('Walk On'); and rejecting the critics ('Ambulance Blues'). But the barbs were mixed with humor and even affection, as Young seemed to be emerging from the grief and self-abuse that had plagued him for two years...he was saying goodbye to despair, not being overwhelmed by it." - William Ruhlmann,
