Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s album cover for “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” was shot in Topanga Canyon.

The album peaked at  34 on the US Billboard chart in August 1970.

Neil wrote and recorded “The Needle and the Damage Done” later found on his album “Harvest” during this time, with direct references to Danny Whitten’s drug addiction and its role in his demise.
