Now greet the arrival of 'Sugar Mountain- Live At Canterbury House 1968,' another singular installment in the continuing Neil Young Archives Performance Series. On this CD+DVD set, recorded in Ann Arbor, MI, November 9-10, just days before the release of Young's self titled solo debut, one of the greatest singer-songwriters in rock history is heard solo and acoustic at the height of one of the must tumultuous and creative periods ever experienced both in music and culture.

With the quality of the music and the song selections in this CD, I'm thinking that Young is releasing it, not for the money, which I don't think that he needs, but to fill in a void for music lovers/Young officianados at that point in time in his prolific musical career. It is well worth having. My only complaint is that the DVD is a copy of the CD, with a picture of what looks like falling snow continuously looped thru the playing of the music.
The Massey Hall 1971 release from last year had all sorts of terrific footage/outtakes/bio info, footage of David Crosby, a shot of Young and Johnny Cash doing an anti-drug message to college students, if I recall correctly. Great stuff. Too bad something similar wasn't done with this CD/DVD set. It's still worth having, but the Sugar Mountain DVD provides us with some empty music calories. If not for that, the music gets five stars.
sent me one. It's a great CD, from Neil Young's
concert in a coffee house in Ann Arbor back
in the mid to late 60s. Don't buy it expecting
lots of concert video. And I'm not sure I have
the technology sensitive enough to pick up the
enhanced quality of a DVD-audio recording. But
the sound on both discs is fine and it makes
me wish all the more that Neil hadn't canceled
his Kansas City concert date this past November
and attended a high tech conference in San Fran
instead to discuss his Lincoln revitalization
100+ mpg car project (being built in a Wichita,
Kansas, garage). Well, he's got an inimitable
style, it's great to hear his early voice, and
may he keep strumming and singing for many,
many years, or, in the words of CSNY, long
may he run...
