This cool raglan tee is from a concert tour launched by Neil Young, which lasted from 1984 to 1985. Young is perhaps best known for being a part of the group Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, however the artist has also performed as a member of Buffalo Springfield as well as his own band, Crazy Horse. 1984 was the first year since 1966, that Young failed to release a new album. The musician was unfortunately preoccupied with a legal battle between him an his record label, Geffen Records. Geffen was upset with Young's latest record, Everybody's Rockin', which featured several rockabilly covers. The label argued that Young had produced music that was "unrepresentative" of himself. They also refused to release a country album that Young had recorded called Old Ways.

Instead of releasing new music, Young chose to tour with the backing band from the recording sessions of Old Ways. That band was the International Harvesters, who are represented on this tee. At the time, Young was glad to take a brake from the pressures of his label and the rock n roll genre. Old Ways was eventually released in 1985, and recordings from the tour were used to make the live album A Treasure, which was released in 2011.

The tag says large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult medium. There is light gray discoloration throughout, see pics.
