Short-lived group recorded 25-track live album!

Showcasing five Neil Young songs, including "Mr. Soul" and more!

This is the first official release by The Ducks — a short lived group that Neil Young played with in 1977. The Ducks featured Neil (guitar, harmonica and vocals), Bob Mosely (bass and vocals), Jeff Blackburn (guitar and vocals) and Johnny Craviotto (drums). Mosely was an original member of Bay Area band Moby Grape; Blackburn had previously fronted his own band and co-wrote with Neil the classic track "My My Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)".

The band played several shows in Santa Cruz, CA and other California venues during two months in 1977, and this 3LP, 25-track live album features highlights from those shows. The set lists were very democratic, with each member of the band taking the lead in turn. Five Neil Young songs are showcased, including a rocking version of "Mr. Soul," plus beautiful renditions of "Are You Ready For The Country," "Little Wing," "Sail Away" and "Human Highway."
