Product Description

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. Of the many unique gems found on Live At The Cellar Door, a rare solo version of “Cinnamon Girl” performed on piano rather than guitar is a particular treasure (the full band version appears on Young’s 1969 second solo album Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere). 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 self-titled debut. 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) and “Old Man” (released two years later on 1972’s Harvest album). “Down By The River,” also from Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, rounds out the spectacular set. Live At The Cellar Door was recorded by Henry Lewy and produced by Young.

This is a great reminder (if we needed one) of just what a fine songwriter Neil Young is. The album is a recording of some solo sets he did in 1970 and they are very good indeed. I had the great good fortune to receive an advance copy of this album, I have played it a lot and the more I play it, the better it gets.

This is the young (sorry) Neil Young with just his guitar and a piano performing some great material like After The Goldrush, Only Love Can Break Your Heart, Old Man and others. They are really good, heartfelt performances which in these stripped-down versions often have tremendous emotional power. Don't Let It Bring You Down, for example, really packs an emotional punch for me - perhaps even more than the studio version does. The wonderful chord structures combined with Young's distinctive, ætherial, almost falsetto vocal give it a fabulous, spare beauty and the same is true of many of the other songs here.

The sound quality is excellent and the choice of material is very well balanced, I think. It's hard to get the balance right on a live album between failing to capture enough of the live atmosphere and having so much chat that it becomes tedious on repeated listening, but the producers here have judged it impeccably. There is very little of Neil Young speaking throughout most of the album - generally just a brief introduction to each song, which is exactly enough to give a feel of the live performance without interfering with the music. (And as an aside, although I know this is from 1970, it still brought me up short to hear Only Love Can Break Your Heart introduced as "a song from my new album".

I've let six months pass since this album came out to really think anything of it - for quite a simple reason, as a 'new release', it didn't feel at all new because there was nothing we hadn't heard before. Scraping the barrel a bit to get excited about Expecting to Fly and a piano release of Cinnamon Girl... don't get me wrong, they're fantastic from the first listen, but this is a whole album.

Anyway, six months and a concept album later I've revisited it a lot and it is a great album, probably the best outright live acoustic album we've seen from Neil and his archives to date. The performance is faultless, and the sound quality is as good as, if not better than studio releases of the same songs from the multiply-remastered Gold Rush. Once the novelty of the piano on Cinnamon Girl, and the fact it's the first showing of Old Man have worn off, these are still great versions of great songs but it's the magnificent After the Gold Rush, Birds and Flying on the Ground that really make this a perfect listen from start to finish.

There is a case for picking faults in the release of this, why long after we had moved on from Archives 1 has this shown up and why are we being overfed with acoustic 70s releases when there's so little from the decades since - however, this is better than Massey Hall and everything acoustic we've seen so far, and if it's this or nothing, there really can be no complaint. Fingers crossed there's material of this quality to come from albums like Comes a Time and Zuma.

This is Neil at his best. His performance is intimate and full of soul. The songs are uniformly brilliant. Best of all is the quality of the recording. It's hard to believe this was recorded in 1970. The sound is wonderful with no evidence of tape hiss - it's such a quiet recording that in the quieter moments on the piano you can hear the foot pedals being depressed.
Personal highlights for me are Expecting To Fly, See The Sky About To Rain and Don't Let It Bring You Down. These are songs I've always loved and it's a joy to hear them performed by Neil on his own with just a guitar or piano.
Unreservedly recommended.

I have all Neil's albums on vinyl and this is superb because it's raw basic and there's an almost nervousness to the man that really shows on the solo show he did for the BBC. But this LP is worth it for "Expecting To Fly" alone, really powerful piano playing. I was fortunate to witness Neil perform this classic Springfield tune at Manchester in 2003 and it remains a beautiful song

A beautiful,delicate,moving concert.You could hear a pin drop and Neil Young had his audience eating out of the palm of his hand.
If you've ever enjoyed any of his material you'll love this.A wonderful release.

I hear that at a recent NY gig he told the audience to keep quiet while he was singing. Good on him, I'm sure we all hate those noisy covert go-ers who won't shut up. Listening to this 1970 show however makes one realise just what a cult artist Neil was back then, in a room with a couple of hundred folks at a push and thus an intimate and wholly enjoyable listening experience. As Neil tries out songs planned for the then unreleased Harvest nobody breathes a word as these quite astonishing songs appear to have the attendees mesmerised.
