Eldorado (EP) – Neil Young

Neil Young Eldorado

Eldorado

(1989), 7.5/10
The EP Eldorado was filleted from an aborted rock album Times Square, and there are only 5000 copies in existence. While the subsequent album Freedom was hailed as the significant return to form, Eldorado packs even more of a punch over its five tracks. Working in a three piece named Neil Young and the Restless, Young is very focused and dealing with good material; apart from the flamenco styling on the title track, Eldorado is straight hard rock.

‘Don’t Cry’ (presented here in a slightly longer, unedited form), the title track and the hard rock cover of ‘On Broadway’ are three of the best songs on Freedom, while the otherwise unreleased ‘Cocaine Eyes’ is arguably the best song on the disc. ‘Heavy Love’ is the least memorable piece, but it’s still stylistically appealing.  Given the track crossover, it’s not essential if you already have Freedom, but at the same time Eldorado is a more consistent and more invigorating record than Freedom, and it’s worth hearing ‘Cocaine Eyes’.
