3.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, but Old Ground, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live At The Cellar Door [Digipak] (Audio CD)
I know it's great; a great artist, at the peak of his powers, his voice in splendid nick, during an unbelievably creative period, even by Young's extraordinarily creative standards. But what does this add, when we already have the Massey Hall and Canturbury House recordings?

Agree with you - an odd release - why release from this period when there's so much from 71 onwards not released - all very odd. This Note's For Who?

And yet critics still fall over themselves to praise this? Have we reached the "Dylan / Young / Springsteen can do no wrong" stage?

Some of these songs were being played live for the first time! And another instance, Cinnamon Girl, announcing "That's the first time I ever did that one on piano." If you don't understand the relevance of such releases don't whinge about them!

Wow, the first time on piano. I never knew that. You've convinced me to buy it now with that important piece of information. This and everything else Young ever releases I'll gladly sign up for including the up and coming "First Live Performances Wearing Dungarees". I just hope the 40 CD box set version is worth the extra cost. The denim covered hard back book is supposed to be worth the price of admission.

And the drug intro to Flying On The Ground sounds dated I understand this release not whinging just think it's time for Neil to move on and give us something more substantial than raiding this well trodden period.

Hilarious - as much as I loved NY all through the 70's - this release sadly is a minor addition....
did you know his original idea for the Harvest album was for the cover to be made from a bio-degradable card allowing it to totally fall apart after a while .. now a reissue like that that would be worth the entrance fee ...

Whilst many might own other live stuff, there are many that don't (myself included). Don't forget, there are commercial aspects to consider and this isn't really aimed at the hard core fan. Many people (again, myself included) may not realise there are other similar recordings available. I admit I'm not a die-hard fan as you and other reviewers here are, but this isn't aimed at those people; it's for occasional buyers such as me.

Yes, I'll grant you Cinnamon Girl on the piano; it's a great version of one of my favourite songs. Other than that, there's not much that this album adds. I wish he'd put similar energy, as AW Riggs says, into the vast number of recordings between 71 and 79. You see them on YouTube; there's some sublime stuff. Really looking forward to this.
