Neil Young finally opens archives

Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
Neil Young is finally ready to roll out releases from his long-rumored "Archives Performance" series. First up is "Live at the Fillmore East 1970," due Nov. 14 via Reprise. The album features six as-yet-unannounced selections from Crazy Horse's March 6-7 runs at the New York venue, at a time when late guitarist Danny Whitten was still a member of the band.

"Fillmore" will also be available in a CD/DVD edition featuring a high-resolution audio mix, photos from the show, Young's handwritten song lyrics and press articles from the era.

In addition to core members Whitten, Billy Talbot (bass) and Ralph Molina (drums), the four shows found Crazy Horse augmented by producer Jack Nitzsche on electric piano. Among the songs featured in the set lists were "On the Way Home," "Broken Arrow," "Cinnamon Girl," "Cowgirl in the Sand" and "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere."


Young just wrapped a summer tour with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young but will return to live duty Sept. 30 for Farm Aid in Camden, N.J., and Oct. 21-22 for the Bridge School Benefit outside San Francisco.

He's been talking about releasing his archives for years and years now - I'm glad he's finally prepared to do so. When this first started, it was supposed to be 3 or 4 CD box sets - about 6 CDs per set! That's a total of about 18 to 24 CDs worth of archives :!: I think he finally decided to do it one or two CDs at a time - which is a lot nicer on the wallet. (Although I'm sure it nickels and dimes you after a while. :wink: ) He said he wants it to be like Dylan's Bootleg Series.

The first one sounds great!
