"Commissioned and released to coincide with Young's 70th birthday, Neil Young Heart of Gold serves as a complete celebration of the life and work of a true Canadian rock legend. What makes it particularly special is Kubernik's unique understanding of Canadian iconography as it pertains to the canon of rock 'n' roll. For someone who has never stepped foot in the country, he has an acute sense of both that which drives the Northern musical tradition and the artists that have helped to define our sound." Canadian writer, Juliette Jagger's review of Harvey Kubernik's "Neil Young Heart of Gold" appears in "A Journal of Musical Things."
