For years Neil Young has been promising to release his archives, from the long rumored multi disc box set to the hundreds of live recordings he has. It may be only a trickle but the faucet has finally been turned on, let’s hope he keeps it on long enough to become the river we all know it can be.
Released this past Tuesday, this album showcases the raw guitar fury that would become the trademark Crazy Horse sound that is still influencing the sound of bands like The Hold Steady , Lucero and more to this today. Recorded at the Fillmore East in New York in 1970, it also includes original Carzy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten who would die of an overdose in 1972, way before his time, inspiring Neil’s eulogy to him Tonight’s The Night.

Give a listen to the 15 minute plus version of Cowgirl in the Sand that closes the disc for a taste of their raw guitar brilliance.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse:
Danny Whitten, Neil Young (vocals, guitar)
Jack Nitzsche (electric piano)
Billy Talbot (bass guitar)
Ralph Molina (drums).
