During the 1960s, while living in the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan, Young released two solo albums, The Soul of a City Boy and Young Blood. He then formed the group the Youngbloods with guitarist Jerry Corbitt, keyboardist and guitarist Lowell "Banana" Levinger, and drummer Joe Bauer. The group's first album contained the song "Get Together", written by Chet Powers, which was re-released as a single in 1969. Young and his band founded Raccoon Records and released four additional albums on that label.
Young left the group in 1972 and released a solo album, Together. His fourth solo album, Song for Juli, released in 1973, produced four singles and remained on the Billboard Top 200 chart for several months. He recorded the albums American Dreams in 1978, The Perfect Stranger in 1982, and The Highway Is for Heroes in 1987.
In September 1979, Young performed in the "No Nukes" concert.
