Probably the definitive Neil Young recording - the only real competition is Decade which is afterall a complilation. Unlike Weld this showcases both the wild electric guitar and his softer accoustic side.
Crazy horse are simply one of the best live outfits ever - getting that 'tight but loose' balance just right, the only thing better than this is seeing them live.
If you are not sure here where to start in his vast back catalogue this is the place to start. But be prepared to spend lots more on buying the original albums these tracks come from.

There are few live albums of the last 3 decades that show such substance and style as Young's live tour de force. From the simple innocence of 'Sugar Mountain' and 'I Am A Child' to the raw power of 'Sedan Delivery' and 'Cortez' Young manages to encompass the entire folk-rock spectrum. The clever use of the stage announcements from Woodstock keep the audience believing in the moment and like Woodstock they are also witnessing something quite unique. Quite simply a must for any Neil Young fan and for anybody wishing to tread the long road through Young's back catalogue, this is as good a starting point as any

shame that Cortez The Killer has been edited down on the CD release. I first owned this album in 1979 on cassette and the intro to Cortez (the best bit of this particular track) was much longer - guess they had to cut something down to squeeze it onto a single CD. Good album though, with four consecutive classics - Powderfinger, Cortez The Killer, Cinnamon Girl, and Like A Hurricane (which is just gorgeous).

Live Rust and Rust Never Sleeps are both great albums, but there is something strange going on here.
All but two tracks on Rust Never Sleeps were recorded live; but you would hardly know it, as most of the sound of the audience was removed. It did however have a major impact and certainly revived Neil`s career.

Then you get Live Rust, which is all live with plenty of audience reaction, but includes four of the same tracks as Rust Never Sleeps. Not just the same songs but the exact same recordings. You do get plenty of Neil`s incendary guitar work, even if the version of Cortez the Killer isn`t the best out there.

So, which is better? Live Rust certainly has a better atmosphere and is virtually twice as long; but Rust Never Sleeps does have five unique tracks.

Personally I would go for Live Rust first and then decide if it is worth buying Rust Never Sleeps for the sake of 20 unique minutes.

Of the divers live albums Young has issued, this is one of the finest. There is little to fault on this album, except perhaps that the band sound a tiny bit too slick for their own good (especially on "Tonight's the Night"). The acoustic set at the start of the album is faultless, and while the electric material is delivered with more conviction on 1991's "Weld," this is one of the more satisfying of Young's albums. Strangely enough, this is also more engaging than the oddly dull concert movie "Rust Never Sleeps," which this LP soundtracks. The version of "The Loner" presented here is definitive, and it is hard to find many reasons for not owning this album.

I'll keep it brief:

Acoustic songs connect well with the audience and convey true passion; electric tracks move everything in to a whole new dimension.

Neil Young is seriously underrated as a guitarist. Great slabs of massively overloaded sound and distortion yet somehow he manages to hold it together and keep the songs melodic and lyrical, despite the rush from the power chords. It's hard to explain how those speakers can survive when the raw power of his guitar is unleashed. It's almost out of control, on the edge but still contained, like a caged animal straining to break free. Cortez the Killer is the highlight for me with Neil's electric guitar set on full stun meandering through an incredible tune but to be honest none of the songs on this album disappoint. As a live album this sets the bench mark that all others should strive to reach.

My only complaint...why couldn't I have been in the audience when this was recorded?

Truly magnificent! Neil Young at his live best. The mellow Sugar Mountain and the howling guitar of Cortez the Killer combine to give the listener a good range of Young's material. Like a Hurricane is particularly emotive. As he launches into Needle and the Damage Done, he must have thanked the guy upstairs as the thunder and the rain bursts the sky. I bet the audience were all lighting up a big green cone at the time too!
