First time on vinyl — Neil Young's historic live performance at The Cellar Door

180-gram LP recorded from six solo acoustic shows from 1970!

Includes a rare piano version of "Cinnamon Girl"

Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Artists — Rated 34/100!

Taken from six shows recorded at The Cellar Door in Washington, D.C. November 30, and December 1 & 2, 1970, this album is released as part of the ongoing Neil Young Archives Performance Series. The solo acoustic shows feature the debut performances of "Old Man" and "See the Sky About to Rain."

Available for the first time - Neil Young's historic live performance at The Cellar Door includes a rare piano version of "Cinnamon Girl."

"The solo acoustic shows came about four months after the release of After the Goldrush, Young's best selling album to date that featured 'Tell Me Why,' 'Don't Let It Bring You Down,' 'Birds' as well as the haunting title track. Those songs are all on Live at the Cellar Door along with older favorites like 'Down by the River' 'Cinnamon Girl' and Buffalo Springfield classics 'Expecting to Fly,' 'I Am a Child' and 'Flying on the Ground Is Wrong.'

"The six Cellar Door shows marked Young's first concerts after a nearly five-month break. He spent some of that time writing new material, and the shows featured the debut performances of 'Old Man,' 'Bad Fog of Loneliness' and 'See the Sky About to Rain.' It's also one of the few concerts where he played 'Cinnamon Girl' on the piano.

"He played two shows per evening at the Cellar Door, and they essentially served as a public rehearsal for his two-night stand at New York's Carnegie Hall on December 4 and 5, 1970. Nobody knew it at the time, but Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young quietly broke up after their summer tour wrapped that July. The success of After the Goldrush demonstrated that Young was a genuine superstar outside of the short-lived supergroup, and his fame would only grow as the decade went on." —, October 21, 2013

A must for any fan of Neil. On the same level as "Massey Hall" in terms of dynamic and intimacy. Happy to receive the corrected pressing, sounds clean. Only reduction is for it being presented on one disc for a higher price.

Poor Quality Control

Nice sound, but record skips. Tried two copies, returned both. For a record at this price point the quality control should be much better.

Acoustic Sounds: At Acoustic Sounds, we evaluated this record the day we received it. It did skip using two separate Koetsu cartridges. We immediately informed Warner Bros. of our findings. However, we have played this record on approximately eight other turntable/cartridge combinations, and the record has played without skipping. We have sold approximately 200 copies with only a few returns.
