Crazy Horse is best known for their association with Neil Young, with whom they have recorded and performed live since the late 60s. Their self-titled debut came out in 1971, although members of the band had already released a previous album as The Rockets and had appeared on record twice with Young. It was the only album to feature guitarist and vocalist Danny Whitten, and the final album he released before his death. Alongside Whitten, Neil Young, Russ Titelman, Jack Nitzsche and Nils Lofgren also served as primary songwriters, although its Whitten’s songs that shine the brightest. His heartbreaking ballad “I Don’t Want to Walk About It”, has ended up being covered multiple times, and made a chart hit by Rod Stewart.
