YOUNG NEIL

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

Neil Young's 40 year career has had its high points but, while his songwriting skills shine through a great deal of his huge output, 1970 & 1971 were something special... and this brilliant live album shows why. Confident, controlled, clearly completely at home as the only man on the stage and with a string of new songs to showcase - many of which would become "Harvest" classics - this is "unplugged" music at its very best, beautifully sung & played and enhanced by crystal clear recording & engineering. And, unlike many live albums, his between song reflections and introductions add real depth & interest to the performance to produce a wonderfully effective record of what it must have been like to be there. Breathtaking stuff and an absolutely superb CD.

This is a beautiful set primarily of new songs that were pitched between After the Goldrush and Harvest.The performance is of such up-lifting clarity of voice and crispness of guitar playing that it can take your breath away.Having denied his past for years in his hunger to keep moving, he released two live albums in 2007 from the
early 70s,one live groove with Crazy Horse and this at the Massey Hall in front of a Canadian crowd 1971.His talking between songs is humorous and sets the tone.These songs will be found on 7 or 8 of his albums,playing with Buffalo Springfield,Crazy Horse,Crosby,Stills&Nash and solo.His playing on Old Man and A Man Needs a Maid convinced Dylan that Young was to the 70s in rock what Dylan had been to the 60s.There are songs of nostalgia and his youth,Journey through the Past and Helpless;confessional songs,Love in Mind,Tell Me Why,I am a Child;there are crowd- pleasing songs,A Man Needs a Maid/Heart of Gold,Ohio and Down by the River.He uses the piano on a few of the songs,(bar-room on..)Journey Through the Past,There's a World,See the Sky About to Rain.The highlights for me are the transitional A Man Needs a Maid/Heart of Gold, which manages to convey the narrator's insecurity and is less chauvinistic than that released on the Harvest album:`Afraid, a man feels afraid' as the first verse,with a striking melody inspired by Carrie Snodgress.I also liked the polemical force of `Ohio' with searing voice and guitar work;finally Down by the River,his guitar epic,a light,fresh, high sound that suggests the wide,clear,open lands of Canada.This was a man alone on the stage,at ease, unaccompanied, the most honest,direct,intimate singer-songwriter at that time.He followed the music wherever it took him in pursuit of the muse,whoever he left behind.The public were always a secondary consideration.

This CD would (and should) have got 5 stars, because the music is absolutely superb. Just Neil and a guitar in front of an enthusiastic audience, with a great set list and fantastic quality sound. Perfect? Almost.....

Unfortunately it's let down slightly because some of the introductions are just a bit *too* long and rambling after more than a couple of listens. My main complaint is that the full request for encores has been left on. It only takes a few seconds to get across the fact that the crown were baying for more: 3 - 4 minutes of constant cheering wears thin very quickly!

Highly recommended; just be prepared to edit, skip or fast forward at appropriate moments for maximum enjoyment.

In the extraordinary canon of work by Neil Young, I don't think there is any other album that showcases his talent so succinctly. If someone who'd never heard Neil Young was to ask me why he's so revered, I'd give them this album and say "listen to that".
I bought the 180 gm vinyl version and the richness of the sound lends itself well to Young's voice, his acoustic guitar and piano. It's the ultimate unplugged.
The audience are hearing some songs for the first time, (for example "Old Man", "A Man needs a Maid" and "Heart of Gold" which would later appear fully-produced on the seminal "Harvest"), yet you can hear a pin drop. They instinctively know they are witnessing something extraordinary.
Listening to Young's soaring, sweet voice on this version of "Helpless" I couldn't move, hanging on to every note and word. I can't remember being moved in such a way by a piece of music for a long time.
This is indeed far away from other Neil Young incarnations like Crazy Horse, or Le Noise, but then he's since built a career out of continually changing direction and surprising us. However, this reminds us of the substance underneath: the brilliant songwriter, the supremely talented musician and the wonderful singer. And he was only 26 years old at the time! Simply stunning.

When I was in my 20s I did one of the wisest things of in life. Through college, I worked as a postman. With the money saved I bought a camera and all of Neil Young's albums. Although from that era, this wasn't available at the time; it fact it was only released in 2007. But what an album. This is a really stunning live performance from one of rock's greats. The audio quality is superb, the performance is as good as Young ever gets (which is, frankly, brilliant) and the whole thing comes in with a live concert atmosphere that you can almost taste.
