CLASSIC LIVE SET BY NEIL YOUNG !,
This review is from: Cow Palace 1986 (Audio CD)
This release is on the quite excellent Left Field label who have released radio broadcasts by Bruce Springsteen, and the overall quality is just outstanding. This one's by Neil Young and Crazy Horse and comprises a 2CD set from a gig in 1986, but don't let this put you off becausae this is a superb live set by one of rock's greatest pereformers at the top of his game. Full of classic Neil songs upto the time of the tour plus eight from the album 'Life' that wouldn't appear till the next year, a total of 129 minutes of 24 songs oh and the odd telephone call and his noivecoder which he used a bit at this time.Of the classics we have the timeless 'Heart Of Gold' a real standout version, 'After The Goldrush', 'Cortez The Killer', 'Down By The River', 'Hey Hey My My', 'Powderfinger', 'Like A Hurricane', a real greatest hits from Neil at the time of this tour.Crazy Horse at their very best add a real depth to his songs. Neil Young then and now is one of the greatest performers there is, an awesome songwriter,guitarist and a voice that brings every song to its greatness. This is I feel one no Neil fan will want to miss at any price, but if you've never yet spent time in his musical company give this a listen and you'll see why he remains and always has been a classic artist.From rockin' electric awesome driving rock such as the opening 'Mr. Soul' to the beauty of his acoustic outings such as 'Inca Queen' make this such a special set.. Crazy Horse deserve a mention as Mr's Sampredo,Molina and Talbot really add to make oit so enjoyable.The great news is that arrarantly Neil's just completed a new album with Crazy Horse for this year and also working on another as well.Uminmissable radio broadcasts from California 5 stars plus a classic album without doubt.
