Product Description

Product Description

NEIL YOUNG Live at Massey Hall (2007 UK 2-disc set comprising the 17-track CD album the second instalment in Youngs live performance series of definitive concerts from throughout his career; the concert is hugely important in the canon of the Young collector as it features several airings that were to feature on his seminal recording Harvest which had not been released yet such as Old Man and Heart of Gold includes bonus All Region NTSC DVD featuring original livefootage. Housed in a gatefold card picture sleeve - still sealed in original stickered shrinkwrap)

Amazon.co.uk

"I'm gonna sing mostly new songs tonight," Neil Young tells the rapt Massey Hall audience, "...I've written so many new ones that I can't think of anything else to do with them other than sing 'em." He steps to the mic unadorned, distant from CSNY's rippled harmonies or Crazy Horse's yowl, hypnotically nailing 17 tracks on this unreleased 1971 solo set. You hear him tower at vocal heights on the chorus for "Old Man" (then a debuted, brand-new song) and name-check Canada on "Journey to the Past" and North Ontario on "Helpless," much to the Toronto crowd's delight. The sound is impeccable, and the closeness to Young in this spare setting exhilarates--especially his vocal quavering in the high registers, his intricate guitar work, and an overall vibe that exceeds description. And the DVD: Here you catch Young in tightly framed, starkly-lit shots, flourishing in the early years of an unparalleled rock career. Not only that, you get commentary from 1997, a rare window on how Young thinks, how he speaks, his humor. --Andrew Bartlett

What can you say about this? Just a phenomenal performance from one of his peak periods and excellent sound quality. If only some of the many bootlegs that have been in circulation for years had this amount of detail! And if you've seen the BBC performance he did from roughly the same time (which was probably when he was recording with the London Symphony for Harvest) you'll recognize some of the same banter and song arrangements. What's really exciting is the notecard inside the case making reference to Vol.1 of the Archives coming in 2007! If it all sounds like this we can all begin drooling now. Hopefully TIME FADES AWAY will get a similar (even expanded?) makeover.

I recall hearing Harvest for the first time in a music shop as a boy, with my father, and our both falling in love with this strange voice. I have loved Harvest for the last 40 years because of the significance of this shared experience and for the sheer beauty of its songs, and I have cherished (nearly) everything else Neil Young has written/sung since. I was therefore prepared to find Live at Massey Hall a moving experience but nothing prepared me for my 'hairs on the back of the neck' reaction to this very very special CD. Young's voice sounds as wobbly, sensitively expressive as ever, but he brings an authority and a compelling freshness to these 'new songs', played in a straight and uncomplicated way with piano and acoustic guitar accompaniment. Strange though it seems, in some ways it's almost like hearing them for the first time. The interweaving of 'A Man needs a Maid' and 'Heart of Gold' is so very special I just want to play it again and again. If you love early NY buy this; it casts new light on some extraordinary music and, I hope, will leave you as deeply moved as it does me.

As a veteran of some 1850 reviews most of which are about quality CD reissues - I bow my head in shame on this one. I'll admit that "Live At Massey Hall 1971" slipped past my radar somehow. How did I not get to hear this absolute gem?

Firstly - as pointed out by many others - the audio quality on this release is just incredible. There’s two versions of “Live At Massey Hall 1971” by NEIL YOUNG - a stand-alone disc (67:38 minutes) on Reprise 9362-43328-2 (Barcode 093624332824) and this – the CD + DVD version on Reprise 9362-43327-2 (Barcode 093624332725). Both come in gatefold card sleeves. Clear, warm, present – “Live At Massey Hall 1971” is like an ultra high-quality 90's or 00's 'unplugged' performance. Both JOHN NOWLAND and TIM MULLIGAN worked on the Restoration, Transfers and Mastering of the original Analogue tapes and they have produced what has to be a Grammy-winning result.

1. On The Way Home
2. Tell Me Why
3. Old Man
4. Journey Through The Past
5. Helpless
6. Love In Mind
7. A Man Needs A Maid/Heart Of Gold Suite
8. Cowgirl In The Sand
9. Don’t Let It Bring You Down
10. There’s A World
11. Bad Fog Of Loneliness
12. The Needle And The Damage Done
13. Ohio
14. See The Sky About To Rain
15. Down By The River
16. Dance Dance Dance
17. I Am A Child

The DVD has all 17 of the above as well as Bonus Footage:
18 and 19 are “The Needle And The Damage Done” and “Journey Through The Past” from the “Johnny Cash On Campus TV Show” (Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, Tennessee)
20 is “Old Man” from “Swingin Mit Neil Young – Dutch TV Documentary”
21 is “Archive Meetings” from “Broken Arrow Ranch”

But best of all is the music and Neil Young's performance.

I will never understand why this work of art was never released in 1971, its the perfect companion to After The Goldrush and Harvest. There is not a weak song on this CD. It is also one of the best live albums I have heard in a long time. I first heard Neil in 1967 on John Peel's Perfumed Garden from the good ship Radio London, I was totally hooked with his voice and his song writing on that day,and even more so now, Still has much to say, he is eternal. Neil is out there on his own, there's no one who comes close to him, the nearest you get is Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell. I really am looking forward to own all of his future Archive releases, this album really does deserve more than 5 stars (Amazon really should up rating stars)I was thinking of picking a few stand-out songs (its almost impossible) cos there are 17 tracks that stand out together, if really pushed I would have to go for "Old Man" "Man Needs A Maid" "Ohio" "Needle And The Damage Done" Neil Young is as the title says Astonishing, Amazing and most definitely Awesome. His Body Of Work is the 3 A's. Silverfox

This sounds like a ridiculous idea but when the Hammersmith Odeon film was released with the deluxe Born to Run Package, I actually felt sad that there had been Bruce Springsteen fans who loved the guy, who had died before ever seeing that locked away footage and as stupid as that notion is it seemed such a shame. In the same way there will be Neil Young fans who will never have heard this imaculate album that has been cruelly archived for over three decades.

Live at Massey park isn't a completest's indulgence,it is a key recording. For a start it captures Neil Young giving an absolutely flawless and beautifully alive live performance of songs at one of the most significant points in his career, between After the Goldrush and Harvest. As the sleevenotes say, this album was scheduled to follow After the Goldrush and you've got to wonder whether you should have heard these songs before or after Harvest was released.

It gives you goose pimples to hear the preamble to 'A man needs a maid', one of the truly enigmatic songs of the 20th century and to then hear Neil Young singing a draft of the song with an alternate chorus that we now know was refined out for the song that appeared on Harvest.

Other highlights for me are 'Down by the River' where an audience member shouts for it and he re-tunes his guitar and just plays the core of the song without the solos either side and Ohio which is warmer than the studio recording.

If you've seen/heard the BBC session, which seemed like the final statement of what was heppening with Neil young at this time, this album opens things out much further as the new songs are even newer and the set far more broad with a bigger recorded sound.
