Out On October 1

Neil Young has announced the first volume of his highly-anticipated official “Bootleg Series”. He’s kicking it off with the release of his show at New York City’s Carnegie Hall on December 4, 1970, which has never been heard by the public. It will arrive on October 1, and will be available in a variety of formats including double vinyl, CD, and High-Res Digital Audio.

Young played a pair of acoustic concerts on December 4 and 5 in 1970. The second gig has circulated as a bootleg for decades.

His 23-song set features classics from Buffalo Springfield and CSNY. There are also songs from “After the Gold Rush”, and he even previewed tracks that weren’t released on record yet.

“This one — Carnegie Hall, December 4th, 1970, is very special to me,” Young wrote on his Neil Young Archives website. “Change happens fast. As I have gone through these early bootlegs, Carnegie Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion [2/1/70], Royce Hall [1/30/71], and others, they show a change, something you can hear — an evolution.”

“My first time playing harmonica, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, is heard as well as what the harmonica replaced — heard on earlier shows,” he continued. “That was interesting to me because I don’t remember exactly when I started playing harp until I heard that. At Carnegie Hall, I hear myself doing a new song, one about my ranch I had just moved to — ‘Old Man.’ Time flies.”
