Background: Released in 1972, Journey Through the Past was the soundtrack to the film of the same name by Neil Young.
The album reached #45 on the U.S. album charts and has long been out of print.
Most soundtrack albums don’t really contain the soundtracks to movies as they sound and as they are edited for the screen — a song heard in a snippet on a car radio in the film, for example, will be presented in its entirety and with good sound on the album. But the soundtrack to Neil Young’s fantasy/documentary Journey Through the Past, released as a double-LP six months before the movie was seen by the public, does contain an audio record of what’s on screen. Songs are cut off or fade out, to be replaced by fragments of something else, and the sound is not improved. When Young uses footage from television appearances by Buffalo Springfield, you hear them in tinny mono sound, and in what sounds like canned versions of the original recordings with some guitar playing and vocals done live. And when Young intercuts a band rehearsal of his song “Alabama” with remarks by David Crosby or a speech by Richard Nixon onscreen, that’s what you hear on the record. So, Journey Through the Past doesn’t work as well apart from the film as most soundtracks do.
