CD Review: Live at The Cellar Door by Neil Young

Live albums are a bit of a dying art in 2014. The age of the DVD has put paid to quality live music performances been committed to audio.

The rarity of Neil Young’s live performances at The Cellar Door, Washington DC from 1970 including Only Love can Break Your Heart and After The Gold Rush is therefore refreshing and beautifully raw.

All the tracks were new to Young's repertoire at the time of recording and Young himself was still keen to experiment further even swapping a guitar for a piano on some numbers.

1970 doesn't get much better than this.
