EDITORS’ NOTES

Live At Massey Hall showcases Neil Young in the early ‘70s, when he already had a big stash of great tunes and wasn’t afraid to experiment with their arrangements. He strips down Crazy Horse guitar jams “Cowgirl In the Sand” and “Down By the River” to skeletal picking and his high, lonesome cry, and this unique balance of intimacy and boldness extends to a version of CSNY’s howling protest anthem “Ohio,” which is slow and deeply mournful like a funeral hymn.

Brilliant!!

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.

Wow!

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
