1.0 out of 5 stars The #1 reason we should all own a turntable February 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Imagine, if you will, that Capitol Records chose years ago to put out the Beatles' "White Album" on compact disk when the format was in its infancy, and for whatever reason decided not to invest the funds to put out a double CD, instead choosing to cram the entire thing onto one CD, and advertising it as a "specially low-priced single disk." But in doing so, they found that the whole thing wouldn't fit onto a standard disk, so they hacked about a minute or so out of "Revolution #9" (thinking nobody would notice), eliminated or shortened the silence between songs (if any), and nickel-and-diming the album until it fit just under the time limitations of a single disk. Then pretend that Beatles fans were too blinded by their fanaticism for the album to objectively criticize, let alone realize, the absolute horror of this corporate hatchet job. If this fictitious story sounds too weird for you, then now you know how I feel seeing five-star review after review here, when Warner-Reprise has performed the ultimate sin right under all our noses.

I only recently started amassing a CD collection of Neil, preferring to stick to the vinyl. I figured there will eventually be a remaster job of these albums, although with Neil you never know, and I could wait until then. But I broke down and went ahead and bought "Live Rust" on CD, which is one of my absolute top 10 favorite albums of all time. Knowing the guitar majesty of "Cortez the Killer" on this album better than I know my own date of birth, and having heard it countless times note-for-note, I immediately fast-forwarded to that track and waited for my world to be sonically blown to bits by the digital clarity of the CD, which happened indeed. For about four minutes.

And then I stopped cold. I stared out the window.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favorite albums November 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I am 30, and bought the vinyl, Live Rust, when I was 14 at a used record store. It was cheap, so I took a chance. I still vividly remember listening to the first side of album one, the acoustic stuff - After the Gold Rush, I am a child, etc - in my parents' den. I was blown away by the beauty and expressiveness of Neil's songwriting, and am to this day. In particular, Sugar Mountain takes me back to the times I went to Six Flags as a kid, and thought being on those rides and staying up til midnight was the best life could ever get.
In addition to the mellow songs, there are some louder, electric ones that are incredible as well, with Cinnamon Girl and Like a Hurricane being good examples. This album definitely has the 'live' thing going for it, and when you hear these cuts you won't settle for the studio versions anymore - it's cool to hear Neil connect with the audience - "When I get big, I'm gonna get an electric guitar. When I get real big".
I kid you not - there is not a dud on the album. It is just incredible, and capable of providing pleasure worth orders of magnitude more than its price. I actually am typing this review because I would love to think someone bought this album as a result of it and enjoyed it as much as I have over the years (in CD format now, of course!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Consider the DVD February 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
After reading Garbageman's review, where he points out the butchering of "Cortez", I decided instead to pick up the DVD "Rust never sleeps". It is the same concert (Oct 22, 1978), and as I write this, costs exactly the same as this CD. It includes the complete Cortez, a few extra songs (Thrasher, Welfare Mothers, Tonight's The Night), and of course, visuals (which are sometimes tacky, it must be said). The audio of course uses a lossy codec, but I find it excellent -- with a 5.1 system it will probably be superior to the CD. And if you want the CD anyway, it is "fair use" in most countries to rip the audio and burn a CD for your own private use.

I haven't heard the CD: I give it 3 stars because Amazon requires some sort of rating, the DVD gets 5 stars, and the truncated Cortez would be sufficient to take away two stars for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cortez not the only edit December 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
After reading Garbageman's review, I have to concur: "Live Rust" is a corporate hack job. Not only is "Cortez the Killer" edited, so is the version of "Hey Hey My My (Into the Black)", at first I thought I was hearing things, but no, I also have the vinyl, and the song is full length on that. The irritating thing about this is that when Reprise marketed this CD, 74 minutes was the most a disc could theoretically hold. Since this disc runs 74:31, and they now run 80 minutes or more, (and have since the mid-90s), why wasn't this remastered with the intact songs YEARS AGO??? I have been waiting over ten years for a newly mastered CD of what I previously thought was the single-greatest live concert recording ever, Bar None. I guess I'll die before they decide to do this disc over. Neil, are you listening?

I'd never say that one album I own is the best, but I can certainly say that I have never heard better than "Live Rust."
I remember sitting in a friend's home in 1979. He pulled out two new albums. One was "Rust Never Sleeps." (The other one was Dylan's "Slow Train.") I remember thinking that it was some of the greatest music I had ever heard. Funny thing is, babies who were born on that day in 1979 are now ((can you believe it?)) 21 years old. And I'm still thinking the same thing about this music. To me, "Live Rust" (along with "Rust Never Sleeps") is like the ultimate rock experience. In the first set, you hear the vibrancy of Young's acoustic guitar, harmonica, and vocals in the live setting. (Not to mention how the lyrics speak right to you, make you stop and think/consider/wonder.) Then, the second set adds Crazy Horse and you get the hard rocking, god-father-of-grunge experience.
The thing that really grabbed me all those years ago was how the song(s) "My My Hey Hey" and "Hey Hey My My" tied the acoustic and the electric statements together and gave us Young's observations on this phenomenon we call rock and roll. Both are included on "Live Rust."
I'd like to go on and tell you about my other favorite cuts on this album, but that would be all of them. 5 stars? Make mine 500.
If you buy it, you will listen. Maybe even for 21 years.
