"Neil Young Live at The Cellar Door" Coming On 180g Reprise Vinyl

Culled from a six night stand at Washington, D.C.'s The Cellar Door between November 30th and December 2nd 1970 a few months after the release of After The Gold Rush, Neil Young Live At The Cellar Door includes solo acoustic performances of "Tell Me Why," "Only Love Can Break Your Heart," "Birds," "Don't Let It Bring You Down" and the title track as well as Buffalo Springfield's "Expecting To Fly", "I Am A Child" and "Flying On The Ground Is Wrong." Also included are "Old Man", which would appear two years later on Harvest as well as "Cinnamon Girl" and "Down By The River" from Young's 1969 classic Everybody Knows This is Nowhere.

Young produced with engineering by the late, great Henry Lewy (!). Mastering is by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, pressed by Pallas in Germany.

Michael, do you have any info on a potential NYA release of Zuma? I have a row of records with matching NYA logos on the spines and I'm not sure if I should go ahead and get the current German pressing, or wait for the archives to catch up. I guess that depends on how long the wait would be. Thanks!

A six night stand from November 30th to December 2nd 1970?  I've had time stand still while listening to Neil Young, but that's pretty remarkable.

Wise guy.

I think you meant six shows, not six nights.  Very hopeful the acoustics are good. A Pallas LP is a real treat.

Thanks for the info.  I saw some great shows at the Cellar Door from the late '70s until it closed.

There's a multi-CD set (no vinyl though) covering three nights Miles Davis did at the same venue with every available note. Wish Neil would release more than this paltry amount
