70’s Performances To Be Included On Neil Youngs Soon Forth Coming Archival Compilation
Neil Young will soon be treating fans to a new installment of his Archives Performance Series, a collection of live recordings from a fall 1970 engagement he played at the famed Cellar Door club in Washington, D.C. Live at The Cellar Door, which will hit stores on December 10, will feature a variety of highlights culled from six shows the folk-rock legend played between November 30 and December 2, 1970, just a few months after his classic album After the Gold Rush was released.
Live at The Cellar Door offers a mix of well-known Young solo tunes, some more obscure gems and three tunes from the singer/songwriter’s tenure with the Buffalo Springfield. One of the more interesting tracks included on the disc is a rendition of “Cinnamon Girl,” featuring Neil playing piano rather than guitar. There’s also a performance of the rarity “Bad Fog of Loneliness,” as well as an early version of “See the Sky About to Rain,” a song that eventually appeared on Young’s 1974 album, On the Beach.
Among the Young solo classics featured on the album are “Old Man,” “After the Goldrush” and “Down by the River,” while the Buffalo Springfield tunes included are “Expecting to Fly,” “I Am a Child” and “Flying on the Ground Is Wrong.”
The album will be available as a CD, a digital download and a high-quality 180-gram LP. Here’s the full track list of Live at The Cellar Door:
