Product Description

The first release from Neil Young's long awaited Archive Performance series is here with Live At The Fillmore East. In 2006, Neil Young delivered another hit album, Living With War, and toured with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Thirty-six years earlier, in 1970, Young toured with CSN&Y and released his platinum album Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, after which he performed a series of shows at New York City's then-new Fillmore East with his band Crazy Horse. That concert finally makes its official debut in the annals of rock history with Live At The Fillmore East, and the circle is unbroken for one of rock's greatest singer-songwriters. Live At The Fillmore East includes an extended ''Down By The River'' and a 16-minute ''Cowgirl In The Sand''. Country barnburner ''Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown'' would later be heard on 1975's Tonight's The Night live album. 1977's Decade collection contained a studio take of the countrified folk-rocker ''Winterlong.''


For years, fans of Neil Young and Crazy Horse have been waiting for an official chance to hear Crazy Horse live with original leader Danny Whitten, the insanely talented guitarist who died of a heroin overdose in late 1972, inspiring Tonight's the Night. Tuned-in fans have been awaiting this very set for at least a dozen years, as it was originally to be tacked onto the end of a Decade-style triple CD of outtakes. Thankfully, this well-recorded live set from the infamous Fillmore East was well worth the wait. Here are scorching, extended takes of "Down by the River," "Winterlong," and "Cowgirl in the Sand," each propelled by guitar interplay so delightful you have to keep rewinding to hear it again. In fact, bits of it seem to prefigure the ways that Richard Lloyd and Tom Verlaine would feed off each other in the band Television, only with less of a sweet edge. But the world doesn't need any more arguments that Young was a proto-punk; what the world does need is at least a dozen more releases from Neil's archives! And hopefully, with this awesome live album, the floodgates have truly been opened and there are many more to come, in the vein of Dylan's Bootleg series. This disc is worth it alone for the version of "Wondering," a tune not officially recorded until many years later in Neil's weird '80s rockabilly phase. --Mike McGonigal

All of the people who have dissed the dvd in this set as not being worth it, don't understand what the intent is. it is not a bonus extra with photos on it. it is a higher resolution music version of the cd.

cd's are recorded at 16 bits resolution and at a sampling rate of 44.1khz. the dvd is recorded at 24 bits of resolution and sampling rate of 48 or 96 khz. it does sound better!!!. i understand some people wont care, but for those of us that want the utmost in fidelity will want this version (provided that you have a dvd player instead of a cd player in your "music" system.) neil has been releasing albums in this form since warner brothers dropped the "dvd-audio format"(i wont even go into what that is, suffice it to say another specialized audio format) that neil embraced as well

Since other reviewers have delved into specifics regarding which songs were played at the Fillmore and which should have been included, I'm not going to reiterate those details. Suffice to say that songs ranging from the classic ("The Loner," "Cinnamon Girl") to the more obscure (some Buffalo Springfield tracks), have been left off this recording. Reprise is lucky that they don't have an army of disgruntled Neil Young devotees storming their offices. But has anyone considered that their frustration could be misguided?

Actually, from what I hear, Neil Young himself is behind the release of this album, and he's planning on going through his archives personally to determine what should be released. And yes, I've heard that some songs, at least "Cinnamon Girl," no longer existed on high-quality tape. The emphasis here was clearly on giving people the best sounding material. And yes, that's admirable, but let's face it - there aren't many people out there who are going to buy this except the big fans, the ones who already have Live Rust and Weld, the ones who own all the original albums, the ones who have been begging for the release of a full show by Neil Young and Crazy Horse circa Everybody Knows This is Nowhere, while Danny Whitten was still alive. And this just doesn't cut it.

Regardless of the controversy surrounding Live at the Fillmore East, what's here is very, very good. "Down by the River" and "Cowgirl in the Sand" are astounding, revealing the tremendous skill of both Young and Whitten, while the shorter songs show the loose genius of Neil and the band. "Wonderin'" is an excellent version of the tune later revamped for Everybody's Rockin' in rockabilly form, and I particularly like "Winterlong.

With this release, the first from Neil's infamous "Archives", comes a all-too brief glimpse of the original Crazy Horse sound captured at full force, with the late Danny Whitten, at the legendary NYC venue in March, 1970.

While the nearly 20 minute long rendition of "Cowgirl In The Sand" has already attained legendary status, there is also a well played extended take of "Down By The River" included in this set. The two songs together elevate the overall package "just enough" for the avid Neil collector to throw their money down, but probably don't add up to enough for the casual Neil fan to do the same this time around. The historical significance of Whitten and Young leading the Horse with such power and electricity will be lost on the less enthusiastic Neil fans out there. But make no mistake about it, this is the way these songs were meant to be played and heard by the world. So if that's important to you, then this becomes a must-have CD (especially in the nice hi-resolution stereo mix of the DVD...turn it up to 11 and enjoy a Crazy Horse show right in your own house!)

As has already been stated and commented on in abundance on this site and many others, as well as all over the rock music world, Neil's choices of what to leave in/what to leave out, ultimately leave his fans really scratching our heads and "Wonderin". But then, what's new? I'm not one to say that "Winterlong", "Wonderin" or "Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown" are less deserving of inclusion than the omitted songs ("The Loner", "Cinnamon Girl", the entire acoustic set, etc etc), but those longtime fan favorites not making the cut of a 44 minute CD is baffling to say the least.

Neil Young and the original Crazy Horse were on fire during the Fillmore East set. The guitar playing don't get any better than is espically on "Down by the River" and "Cowgirl in the Sand". Neil was cruise'in 100MPH with "Old Black." Just listen to the middle of Cowgirl in the Sand, there is no equal to these versions. The other songs are great too, better than the album versions by a great deal. Danny's "Come on Baby Lets Go Downtown" is just a great song, with Neil's leads giving it alot of flavor. "Wonderin" a nice country-rock tune, with good backing vocals from Danny, rather short but very enjoyable. "Winterlong" great tune, guitar wise and vocally. This song is a way better than the decade version. "Everybody Knows this is Nowhere" is a great opener, gives a warm feeling of being home...the vocals are good as well. All the tracks are 10s...The album is something you can put on repeat and not get bored of.

Don't pass this up, if your a fan of Neil Young or not. If not, this will make you a Neil Young fan!

One of the best Neil Young live releases ever, it is short set, six songs, but those songs carry this release as Neil Young's masterpiece.
