Live at the Catalyst With Crazy Horse (1984)

Crazy Horse had a really great 1970s and a fantastic 1990s, but the 1980s was their lost period. There were long tours in 1986 and 1987, but they were little more than retreads of Rust Never Sleeps from a decade earlier. The only time they really attempted a forward-looking endeavor was the four shows they played at Santa Cruz, California's tiny Catalyst club in February of 1984. Most of the classics were set aside in favor or new tunes like "Violent Side," "So Tired" and "Your Love Is Good To Me." Some of these songs wound up on the underwhelming Landing on Water, while others were never played again. Luckily, fans caught the shows on tape.
