Neil Young Digs Up Lost Seventies Albums
Young has finally launched his long-anticipated Archives project online, a collection of every studio recording in stunning quality. He's planning to use the site to roll out "about 10 unreleased albums and a few unreleased films." Here are four gems that will finally see the light of day soon.
An LP capturing Young's 1973 club gigs debuting Tonight's the Night. He often sparred with the crowd, which was unfamiliar with the new songs.
This 1975 LP was a planned return to the commercial Harvest sound before Young shelved it. "It was too personal," he said. "It scared me."
A soundboard tape from Young's fieriest tour ever, with Crazy Horse in 1976. It features the definitive "Cortez the Killer."
The original "Powderfinger" and "Pocahontas" were on this LP, which he held back in favor of 1977's heavy American Stars 'N Bars.
