~ 1972 – Neil Young has his first # 1 hit with “Heart of Gold’.  Released from the 1972 album Harvest, it is so far Young’s only U.S. No. 1 single.  In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked it No. 297 on their list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.  The song, which features backup vocals of James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt, is one of a series of soft acoustic pieces which were written partly as a result of a back injury. Unable to stand for long periods of time, Young could not play his electric guitar and so returned to his acoustic guitar, which he could play sitting down. He also played his harmonica during the three instrumental portions, including the Introduction to the song.
