'After the Gold Rush' is the third studio album by Canadian / American musician Neil Young, released in September 1970 on Reprise Records. The album consists mainly of country folk music, along with the rocking 'Southern Man', inspired by the unproduced Dean Stockwell-Herb Bermann screenplay 'After the Gold Rush'.

'After the Gold Rush' peaked at number eight on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart; the two singles taken from the album, 'Only Love Can Break Your Heart' and 'When You Dance I Can Really Love', made it to number 33 and number 93 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100. Despite a mixed initial reaction, it has since appeared on a number of 'greatest albums' lists. In 2014, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
