By the end of the ‘70s, Neil Young established himself as one of the decade's most important rockers. His three-LP retrospective Decade made a strong case for his first-rate relevancy. His albums, including Rust Never Sleeps, proved he was still writing vibrant contemporary rockers. And this live album from a performance in 1978 showed Young in peak condition both as a solo acoustic act and as an electric powerhouse with Crazy Horse. The track selection is excellent, beginning with his paean to eternal childhood, "Sugar Mountain" and "I Am a Child" and ending with his grim depiction of the rock ‘n' roll lifestyle, "Tonight's the Night."
