Eldorado is an EP released only in Japan and Australia by Neil Young and The Restless, which consisted of Chad Cromwell and Rick Rosas. It contains different mixes of three songs that subsequently appeared on Young’s 1989 album Freedom, “Don’t Cry,” “On Broadway,” and “Eldorado,” and two tracks not available on any other recording, “Cocaine Eyes” and “Heavy Love.” It is claimed that “Eldorado” came about as a direct result of Young’s reunion with Crosby, Stills & Nash on 1988’s American Dream – the proto-grunge sound of Eldorado an extreme contrast to CSNY’s lightweight folk/pop – and that the song “Cocaine Eyes” in particular is a critique of Stephen Stills’ condition during the making of that album.
