Remastered 2016 140-gram vinyl reissue

Made with the longest-running Crazy Horse lineup

Includes "Cortez the Killer" and "Barstool Blues"

Remastered from the original master tapes. Zuma marks Neil Young's second release of 1975, coming a mere five months after Tonight's the Night. Named after Zuma Beach in Malibu, California, the album finds Young backed by a new-look Crazy Horse in which the late Danny Whitten is replaced by Frank "Poncho" Sampedro.

Zuma was the first album released after the famed Ditch Trilogy, comprising the albums Time Fades Away, and On the Beach, and Tonight's the Night. Young wrote most of the songs in Zuma during his time living on Sea Level Drive in Malibu, California. though "Through My Sails," originally entitled "Sailboat Song," derives from the spring 1974 rehearsals with CSNY, featuring the quartet on vocals and "Pardon My Heart" was recorded around the same period, originally intended to be released as part of Homegrown.

Mastered from the analog tapes and pressed with the utmost care, Zuma has never sounded better.

Not sure why these re-issues are on "140-gram" (feels like 120, but who's weighing) but the vinyl, like the cardboard jacket, is undoubtably thinner to save them/us money. Not to worry - this pressing, despite a VERY slight warp (which my record clamp resolved) sounds very warm, natural, and true to the original, with perhaps slightly inproved dynamics/transparency. Although I no longer have my original Reprise pressing to compare it to (I basically wore it out, but, let's face it, my system wasn't as good in the mid-70s, either), but in head-to-head listening with my copy of the German (?) import offered elsewhere on this site, I must say I prefer this "2016 remaster". For those who don't want to buy the entire limited-edition box-set, this vinyl was very quiet, without a pop, tic, or surface noise of any sort, and is a relative bargain, as well. A great-sounding LP for the money!
