I've decided that my creeper goal for 2021 is to drive by Hunter Thompson's Owl Farm, along with Neil and Daryl's Telluride ranch.

This show is somewhat like a "best of" album for this point in his career. Similar to Live at Massey Hall, but a bit more intimate and a bit more humorous. 50 years later, I'd still rather listen to this than much of the new stuff that I keep trying.

Neil Young said about these recordings from 1971:" A more calm performance....to my fans, I say this is the best ever."
I guess Neil listened to more Neil Young shows than any other person on this planet so....I can´t disagree. I never heard a recording with him singing so good.
Each song is essential Young so even for novices I´d say this is a great guide to the acoustic Neil Young.
(And does his D-45 sound great)

All of his most timeless songwriting in one live set, a super-fan's dream; yet, with all of his iconic live sets, it's likely only going to attract the attention of completionist collectors. Still this lyrically-focused live set is unmistakably, undeniably one masterpiece after another, and sounds very intimate.

Neil's live albums tend to be excellent and this is no different. A stripped back set that includes most of his big hits up to that point was always going to be a good show and there are no surprises here.
