NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE – One Of Their Most Notorious Live Albums ‘WELD’ Released 30 Years Ago

Back in time

21 October 2021

Band: NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE

Anniversary album: WELD

A live album – 2CDs – containing recordings from the Ragged Glory tour.
Initially released as a limited-edition 3 CD set entitled Arc-Weld, with the
Arc part a single CD with just a collage of guitar noise and feedback.

Released: 22 October 1991

AllMusic said: “Where Young’s previous double live album, Live Rust, which bore some similarities to this one, was a career retrospective including some acoustic numbers, Weld
was all electric rock with Crazy Horse. The one previously unreleased song was a Gulf War
era cover of Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind,” complete with gunshots and exploding bombs.
In retrospect, Weld seems like an excellent expression of one part of Young’s musical persona, putting some of his best hard rock material onto one album.”

Full review: here. Score: 4.5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: The number of Neil Young live albums is huge by now, and they’re still coming frequently from the living legend’s inexhaustible Archives, but Weld is one of the best, a mammoth monument to frame.
