For Neil Young, 1970 proved to be a particularly busy year. In addition to touring the world as a solo acoustic act and with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, as well as recording two pivotal albums (After the Gold Rush and Deja Vu), he managed to squeeze in a few gigs with Crazy Horse. Six of the best takes from two torrid shows at the Fillmore East on March 6th and 7th are available on this CD, which is the first-ever archival release from Young's bulging vault. Epic jams on "Down by the River" (twelve minutes long) and "Cowgirl in the Sand" (sixteen minutes) are highlights of the disc, which also contains "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere," "Winterlong" and "Wonderin.' â??The guitar interplay between Young and original Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten is breathtakingly sharp; Young has played with countless other guitarists since Whitten died in 1972, but nobody has come close to matching his ragged-glory style.

    “I Was Made to Love Her”

    Stevie Wonder | 1967

    Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
