Neil Young - Carnegie Hall 1970


  • £23.99

Neil Young has selected the landmark concert he played at New York’s Carnegie Hall on December 4th, 1970 as the inaugural release for his Official Bootleg series. 

The show rounded off a momentous year for Young who had released the After The Gold Rush record just three months earlier in September, which itself followed on from Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's Déjà Vu album in March of the same year. 

This show is a never-before-heard recording with Young playing solo on vocals, acoustic guitar, piano and harmonica. Young played two solo acoustic shows at Carnegie Hall that week. “Listening to existing bootlegs, it seems that all the bootleggers got the second Carnegie Hall show,” Young writes on the Neil Young Archives. “There was one at 8:00 pm and one at midnight [about 27 hours later]. No one got that first one - the first time I walked onstage at Carnegie Hall, blowing my own 25-year-old mind.”
