iTunes Review

Neil Young has always been a captivating live performer, whether it’s leading the feedback-drenched manic panic of Crazy Horse or gently nudging his reflective muse as a solo act with sparse piano and acoustic guitar. This Toronto concert, the second release of the long awaited Neil Young Archives series, is a prime example of the latter. Having experienced wide-ranging success with his 1970 album, After the Gold Rush, and tours with Crosby, Stills and Nash, Young was in the process of putting together what would become one of his best-selling albums, 1972’s Harvest. He was writing prolifically and audiences were treated to early peeks into his emerging song catalog. Future hit “Heart of Gold” is added to “A Man Needs A Maid.” “See the Sky About to Rain,” which wouldn’t see official release until 1974’s On the Beach, and “Bad Fog Of Loneliness,” which never saw release, are presented alongside Young favorites, “Helpless,” “On the Way Home,” “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” and “Ohio.” Most impressive, “Cowgirl in the Sand” and “Down by the River” are stripped of their extended jams and laid emotionally bare.

if you're a neil young fan...

if you, in any way, shape, or form, are a fan of mr. young, purchase this CD. it's amazing.


This is the album that first introduced me to Neil Young when I was around 12 years old. My hippie dad sat me in front of the home stereo equipment w/ those giant old school headphones and played a bootleg copy on a loop to the point where I memorized half the album!! With this offiial release, the genius of Neil Young can be listened to all over again. One of the best live albums I own from any artist or genre.


What a great surprise to come across this album after all this time. Neil Young is so immensely talented, that his musical doodles betweeen songs are more enjoyable than most of the drek on MTV. This album also takes you back to a day when concerts were simpler musical events rather than the over-produced, over-hyped and under delivered Las Vegas events we see too much of today. From the gripping rendition of On the Way Home to the great 'rap' leading into Old Man to the classic The needle and the Damage Done this album reminds us that once there were albums where all the cuts were worth listening to. A true gem

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...
