Editors’ Notes

The inaugural release of the long awaited Neil Young Archives Performance Series, Live at the Fillmore East is a pure definition of rock n’ roll at the onset of the ‘70s, should you need to explain it to a stranger. The beautifully lumbering Crazy Horse set the tortoise-like pace and Young duels with animated string-strangling passion with guitarist Danny Whitten through what are now longtime classics (“Down By the River,” “Cowgirl in the Sand” both in extended workouts). But recorded here over two nights, March 6 and 7, 1970 at New York City’s Fillmore East, they are recent creations, the result of Young’s second solo album Everybody Knows This is Nowhere with all their incendiary power revealing itself one feedback drenched minute at a time. Two of very few officially recorded Crazy Horse performances with this line-up, the shows feature spectacular sound, bright, clear and in glorious stereo with producer Jack Nitzsche joining the group on electric piano, and the group’s country influences flowing through the harmonies of “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere,” “Winterlong” and “Wonderin’” A brilliant but brief snapshot.

Customer Reviews

Worth the price if you're smart....

An absolutely AMAZING live album, period. Whatever these guys up here are saying about "overpriced" is ridiculous, the album is still 43 minutes long, which, considering the average length of a song today is what, 4-5 minutes, so that's still 8-11 songs worth of music. Regardless, this album has the BEST renditions of Cowgirl in the Sand and Down By the River ever recorded, period. If you like either of these songs, it's worth it. They are absolutely amazing. Also, the reason the track listing is so short is ebcause these 6 songs were the only ones they had surviving ORIGINAL tapes of the recordings of any quality, so this is as good as it gets for this quality folks, you won't see a re-release with more songs or anything, so don't listen to those guys up there. Great album overall, great playing, and remarkably good quality on the sound.

Give Neil and Itunes a break

I highly doubt that Neil or Itunes have any control over the price. Talk to Reprise Records if you're not happy about the price. I bought it at Best Buy w/ the DVD for like 23$ so you're getting a steal on Itunes. The recording is great. Had heard this show before in bootlegs but, the mixing makes it better. The guitar work is incredible between Neil and Danny Whitten, and Crazy Horse's "Come on Baby Let's Go Downtown" is classic. Worth the 11.99.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse- Long May You Run

Neil Young, like the Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen, is one of rock's more prolific live acts. His concerts, like the Stones' and Springsteen's, have been bootlegged enough to last beyond Christ's return; finally here is an "artyfact" from a bygone era where rock 'n' roll probably was thought to be the savior's return, Neil & Crazy Horse taking the part of John the Baptist, a voice "crying out in the wilderness." Like the Bible itself, LIVE AT THE FILMORE EAST, is open to interpretation, it's either a living fossil of a dinasaur, an incomplete gospel (only six songs!), or a huckster's attempt at selling rock salvation (priced @ $11.99 here on iTunes, even pricier at some retail outlets). The fact is it IS a testament to a time when rock 'n' roll mattered, when it was about taking the listener deeper & farther. Neil & Crazy Horse, including the late Danny Whitten and Jack Nietze, do not disappoint. Alive, thrashing, wild eyed and harmonious, the band preaches the good news on a nearly thirteen minute version of "Down By the River," and a nearly seventeen minute version of "Cowgirl in the Sand" along with the downhome baptism of "Wonderin'" and "Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown." Simply put, if Clapton was "God" in England, Neil Young was "God" here in America, the salvation of rock 'n' roll is alive and well on this record.

After Neil Young left the California folk-rock band Buffalo Springfield in 1968, he slowly established himself as one of the most influential and idiosyncratic singer/songwriters of his generation. Young's body of work ranks second only to Bob Dylan in terms of depth, and he was able to sustain his critical reputation, as well as record sales, for a longer period of time than Dylan, partially because of his willfully perverse work ethic. From the beginning of his solo career in the late '60s through...
