Neil Young – 1970 “After The Gold Rush” Album Cover Proof, Signed by Photographer

An ultra rare album cover proof for Neil Young’s 1970 second album, After The Gold Rush, signed by the album cover photographer Joel Bernstein.

As described in the included letter of authenticity from longtime Neil Young associate Bernstein:

“This letter is to authenticate an album cover proof for Neil Young’s 1970 album After the Gold Rush. This was the first album cover I photographed, and I have had this in my collection since the album cover was put together.

I photographed Neil Young for the first time at his first East Coast show with Crazy Horse, at the Bitter End in New York City, in February 1969. I went on to work with Neil extensively, as both his and CSNY’s tour photographer, and shooting him for eighteen of his album covers (including After The Gold Rush, Harvest, Time Fades Away, Tonight’s The Night, Decade and Rust Never Sleeps) plus numerous other official projects including publicity, advertising, songbooks, posters, et al.

On various tours from 1973-1993, I also worked with Neil as his guitar technician; and served as his archivist for 20 years, researching and presenting him with every source for audio, artwork and text used in his massive box set Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972. Sincerely, Joel Bernstein.

The proof is in excellent condition and measures 13.5” x 26.5”. Joel Bernstein has signed it in the lower right hand corner. With Bernstein’s letter of authenticity and Recordmecca’s lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
