Live With Crazy Horse (1976)

The death of Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten in 1972 threatened to destroy Young's garage band after just a single album, but in 1975 he recruited Frank "Poncho" Sampedro to take this place. The new lineup quickly cut Zuma and then hit the road for an overseas tour. There are great recordings of shows in Japan and Europe where the Horse is playing at its absolute pinnacle, with Young delivering a tender, solo acoustic set at the beginning of the night. There are even some shows filmed by a professionally camera crew, which could make for a very compelling live package should they ever get around to it.
