Artist: NEIL YOUNG
Album: YOUNG SHAKESPEARE
What: A live longplayer and concert film recorded/shot in 1971,
three days after that other live document Live At Massey Hall 1971,
during the Journey Through The Past solo tour.
Released: 26 March 2021
Louder Than War says: “Young Shakespeare is the latest gem to be unearthed
from his vaults: a pristine live recording of Young at his simplest and purest – just
his voice, his acoustic guitar and his harmonica (and occasionally at the piano),
recorded on his Journey Through The Past solo tour in early 1971. It’s spellbinding…
Everything on this recording, it’s just perfect.”
Full review here. Score: 10/10.
Turn Up The Volume says: Another Neil Young live album, I hear you say?
Yep, the Canadian troubadour still is delving deep in his basement, and as
long as he comes up with treasures like this I’m all ears. This heart-warming
solo performance – acoustic guitar and voice – including stupendous live
versions of some of his best ballads ever (Old Man, Helpless, The Needle
And The Damage Done, Down By The River) is just s-t-e-l-l-a-r. Fact!
Clips for two of the LP’s 12 humdingers…
