One of the greatest singer-songwriters of the rock era. Solo. Acoustic. January 19, 1971. Live At Massey Hall, the legendary concert from Neil Young.
The acclaimed Toronto performance features classics "Old Man" and, in a suite, "A Man Needs A Maid" and "Heart Of Gold" (before they were recorded for Harvest) along with some of his most popular songs ("Cowgirl In The Sand", "Ohio") as well as the most obscure ("Bad Fog Of Loneliness"). Live At Massey Hall is a rock gem.
The LP mastering and cutting was done using the original 1/2" analog master tapes. Mastered and cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood from analog master tapes prepared by John Nowland at Neil Young's studio, this vinyl package features two black-vinyl discs in a Stoughton gatefold jacket.
"This is the album that should have come out between After the Gold Rush and Harvest. David Briggs, my producer, was adamant that this should be the record, but I was very excited about the takes we got on Harvest and wanted Harvest out. David disagreed. As I listen to this today, I can see why."- Neil Young, 2007
These recordings have long been known to serious fans as having been highly esteemed by the few who heard them.... More than for its collector appeal, however, the album's worthwhile for its artistic excellence, capturing Young's songs in their most intimate and unadorned settings, his voice at his most expressive and personal, and his writing at a crest achieved by few other composers.
