Young live at 25

Music Review: Neil Young, ‘Live at the Cellar Door’

January 16, 2014
By MATTHEW PARRISH - Sun-Gazette Correspondent , Williamsport Sun-Gazette

As a reporter, I'm painfully aware of the problems of using a tape recorder. There are so many things that can go wrong: The batteries can die, the tape can run out, the recorder can be on the wrong setting, you can forget to turn it on or even forget to even bring it. So, the fact that these performances by Neil Young from 1970 at the Cellar Door in Washington, D.C. were captured by a tape recorder and saved for more than 40 years for us to hear in 2014 is, in my opinion, pretty miraculous. I just imagine the vulnerable recorder sitting there, maybe on a stool, maybe on the stage, maybe someone holding it, as Young performs "Old Man" for the first time.
