During 1987 and 88 Neil Young formed a band called the Bluenotes, toured with them, and released an album called This Note's For You. The sound was blues with horns, at the time a new style for Young. He discarded it and returned to basics for Freedom and Ragged Glory, resuscitating his career. Now, almost 30 years later, he has dipped into his archives and released this double disc live album. It is surprisingly good, at least in the top five NY live releases. The band is tighter and more nimble than Crazy Horse and the horn section sounds like it belongs. Many of the songs were recorded again for the album, some were never released, and a few were remakes. Here is my list of highlights; Life In The City, Twilight, Ordinary People (later on Chrome Dreams II), Crime in The City (more muscular than Freedom), the bozo Doghouse, and the Buffalo Springfield remake On The Way Home. The set ends with a spooky 19 minute Tonight's The Night.
