Neil Young: 'Live At The Cellar Door' coming November 26th
Neil Young will release Live At The Cellar Door, the latest in
his Archives Performance Series, on November 26th on Reprise Records. The album
collects recordings made during Young's intimate six-show solo stand at The
Cellar Door in Washington D.C. between November 30th and December 2nd, 1970, a
few months after Reprise released his classic third solo album After The Gold
Rush in August.
The album, which features Young performing on acoustic guitar and
piano, includes tracks that are interesting for several reasons, such as
stunning live versions of songs that appeared on After The Gold Rush ("Tell Me
Why," "Only Love Can Break Your Heart," "Birds," "Don't Let It Bring You Down"
and the title track) and solo performances of the Buffalo Springfield songs
"Expecting To Fly" (from their 1967 second album Buffalo Springfield Again), "I
Am A Child" (from their third and final album Last Time Around and Young's 1977
Decade compilation), and "Flying On The Ground Is Wrong," from their 1966
In addition, Live At The Cellar Door features early, raw
performances of songs that wouldn't appear until subsequent Young albums,
including the rarity "Bad Fog Of Loneliness" (which appears on Live At Massey
Hall '71 - released in 2007-but was previously unreleased until the studio band
version was included on Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972), "Old Man" (released two
years later on 1972's Harvest album), a rare solo performance of "Cinnamon Girl"
on piano (the full band version appears on Young's 1969 second solo album
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere), and "Down By The River," also from Everybody
Knows This Is Nowhere.
Live At The Cellar Door was recorded by Henry Lewy and
produced by Young.
As with Young's previous releases in the Archives series, Live At
The Cellar Door will be released digitally, on CD, and on 180-gram vinyl
(mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and pressed at Pallas in
