Neil Young: Harvest Time, a never-before-seen “docu-film” about Neil Young‘s bestselling 1972 album Harvest, will hit theaters for one day only on December 1st in celebration of the album’s 50th anniversary, with select encores on Sunday, December 4th.

Featuring performance and rehearsal footage from the “Harvest Barn” sessions at Young’s Broken Arrow Ranch in Northern California, an iconic concert in London with the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Nashville studio where a 20-something Neil Young worked on hit songs like “Heart of Gold”, “A Man Needs A Maid”, “Alabama”, and “Old Man”, the movie offers a glimpse of Young’s rise to folk-rock stardom. The exclusive cinema event opens with a personal introduction from Young about the film and album.

“This is a big album for me,” Young said. “50 years ago. I was 24, maybe 23 and this album made a big difference in my life. I played with some great friends and it’s really cool that that this album has lasted so long. I had a great time and now when I listen to it, I think I was really just lucky to be there. I hope you enjoy this story, which is ‘Harvest Time,’ and which talks about everything that happened. And now people all around the world can see it at the movies.”

The premiere will coincide with the release of the 50th Anniversary Edition Harvest Vinyl and CD Box Sets, which consist of the original album, three studio outtakes on CD/7” vinyl, and an unreleased live 1971 BBC solo performance on CD/LP and DVD, plus a hardbound book and fold-out poster and a lithograph print. The Box Sets will be available via The Greedy Hand Store at Neil Young Archives (NYA) and at retail stores on December 2nd. Pre-order/pre-save here.
