Neil Young - Live At The Cellar Door (USA 1970/2013)

Latest new arrival.

Just a quick note on this new Neil Young CD that I finally got around to purchasing, Something like the 6th volume in the Performance series and it is another Neil solo acoustic gig recorded in 1970. Nothing short of brilliant, with a raft of extremely familiar songs played and sung beautifully by Neil on Piano and acoustic guitar. This was a very intimate gig with only a smattering of applause between tracks and the intimacy of the occasion definitely shines through in the renditions of these songs, as it is noticeable when  listening to it in conjunction with the Massey Hall gig the following year, which was a bigger hall and audience. The Massey Hall CD is also brilliant, but this one just pips it for me. Neil solo is just the best and the sound quality is excellent, highly recommended and compulsory for serious Neil fans. Rating 5/5.
