Morrison, CO 2012 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, CO; August 5, 2012. Very good audience recording.

It was only in June that Neil Young and Crazy Horse released Americana. For now, it’s on with another tour. But it’s not just another show.

When the group opened the current tour in Albuquerque, New Mexico on August 3, they debuted six new songs, which are also featured here. And someone had already posted on the net, “new album in October, according to Poncho”.

Thanks to Kurly5 who recorded the show and shared the tracks on Dime.

Thanks also to ethiessen1 for the artwork.

  2. maybe someone can explain to me why Neil felt the need to include the cover of the coaster`s song,”Get a Job” on his latest vanity release. It is by far the worst song ever.

    By funkstahunk on Aug 8, 2012

  3. Because he is Neil Young and he has earned the right to do whatever he wants to musically (of course in baseball they might call it a swing-and-a-miss”!).

    By elvislives on Aug 8, 2012

  4. have you heard it? It blows harder than moby dick.

    By funkstahunk on Aug 8, 2012

  5. but Oh Susanna is awesome!
    piss off , listen to yourself breathe

    By Wang Dang on Aug 8, 2012

  6. Americana was a waste of Twenty hard earned dollars. But at least i don`t download legit releases.

    By funkstahunk on Aug 8, 2012

  7. Thanks for sharing this with us!! Love Neil Young!!

    By DanC on Aug 8, 2012

  8. GET A JOB is Neil’s way of sticking it to GEORGE W. BUSH… ya see, he still thinks George is President… and unemployment is still at record highs because Bush isn’t doing anything.

    You got it, Neil! No way I am gonna vote for GEORGE W. in 2012!

    By THE Russian Assassin on Aug 8, 2012

  9. you gotta wonder about people that would elect a dummy like bush and also look to “chick a fill” restaurants for moral guidance.

    By funkstahunk on Aug 9, 2012

  10. neils new album coming out after americana will include a lot of songs that hes currently doing on this tour. his first show on this tour included 6 of the songs on this new cd and one song from americana. note the 4th song on this show is over 24mins long.
    i dont have to download this show here since i got it a few days ago on monday nite tuesday morning already. however thank u very much for getting it so quickly. i was hoping for the first show of the tour. perhaps a few more shows into the tour we can get a bunch more songs from the americana and the new as yet to be titled cd that will come out later this year.
    on the 22nd neil will do farm aid in hershey park which should become available in super quality. and then theres the central park show a few days later with the foo fighters and black keys. wouldnt it be nice if that becomes available either sbd or tv/fm?

    By darth on Aug 9, 2012

  11. btw.. neil did a 2nd nite at red rocks and it was 2 mins shorter than the first nite and he added an encore. the 15th song was ‘roll another number’. it was just under 5mins. otherwise the set list is identical. im just offering this info for ppl who care.

    By darth on Aug 9, 2012


    By DROPKICK SARGE on Aug 9, 2012

  13. “It blows harder than moby dick.”

    Now that’s just plain blasphemous! And no, I’ve not yet heard the track, but really, dissing Zep on THIS board? You outta your ever-loving mind?!? ;)

    By golgo hakase on Aug 9, 2012

  14. Darth, actually, looks like Neil added 2 songs as the new encore as TUBE shows the setlist thus:

    01 - Love And Only Love (11.14)
    02 - Powderfinger (5:55)
    03 - Ontario (4:25)
    04 - Walk Like A Giant (24:44)
    05 - The Needle And The Damage Done (2:50)
    06 - Twisted Road (3:43)
    07 - For The Love Of Man (5:03)
    08 - Ramada Inn (18.04)
    09 - Cinnamon Girl (5:32)
    10 - Fucking Up (10:17)
    11 - Psychedelic Pill (3:47)
    12 - Mr. Soul (6:18)
    13 - Hey Hey My My (Into The Black) (10:27)
    14 - Jesus Chariot (10:24)
    15 - Roll Another Number (4:55)

    So both shows will be worth getting for the extra songs. Cool!

    By golgo hakase on Aug 9, 2012

  15. I would look to Chick-Fil-A for moral guidance before I’d look to the Kenyan and his band of whatevers. And Bush ain’t the Prez..the Kenyan is and unemployment is worse than ever. Open your eyes, leftists.

    By ken on Aug 9, 2012

  16. I look to 2000+ years of Judeo-Christian values for moral guidance..not election polls as the Kenyan does.

    By ken on Aug 9, 2012

  17. the kenyan? leftists? welcome to bigo, mr limbaugh. don’t your judeo-christian values tell you to love thy neighbor?

    By barth on Aug 9, 2012

  18. Yo, Malibu Ken! I think you and Barbie landed on the wrong website! This is Big-O, not Big-R!

  19. Now I know why I can call myself a genuine NY fan because I know what to expect from him…nothing.He plays,I listen and whatever happens happens,its never always great but it IS always interesting and that`s enough for me.Besides,this could very well be the last go around with Crazy Horse….it`s a time to celebrate folks,not bitch and complain.Fuck the haters - Big O,once again you have come through…thx !!!

    By couz on Aug 9, 2012

  20. remember the emperors new clothes?
    he was naked yet no one had the balls to tell him and instead they all kissed his heinie and said wonderful clothes.
    someone should tell neil that on occasion his little side trips into vanity recording should stay unreleased. His new cd is crap and without clothing.

    By funkstahunk on Aug 9, 2012

  21. what the hell”s wrong with neil young?fuck,he’s great!

    By tman on Aug 10, 2012

  22. yeah, he is great and he`s also human and sometimes records crap. learn the difference and read my emperors post tman. don`t be a sheep.

    By funkstahunk on Aug 10, 2012

  23. golgo - since there are 15 songs on the 2nd show (and yes the last 2 songs are different from the first show) and the first show had 14 songs.. it would seem that there is a song he didnt do in the 2nd show that he did do in the first. i didnt figure this out. i did dl both nites however. sometimes i am a completist. yes both of those last 2 songs are not played the first nite. i went by their info. my downloading hadnt yet finished. z1 etc 3 files took me a lot longer than expected.
    the show is still 2 mins shorter than the previous nite and a song longer. with walk like a giant still clocking in at nearly 25mins. wow. im happy i got both nites. im still looking for the first nite of the tour.

    By darth on Aug 10, 2012

  24. Yeah I would agree. The new album Americana looks better on paper than what it actually turned out to be. Anyway, high hopes for the new album supposed to be coming soon!

    By Nick on Aug 10, 2012

  25. Could someone post the second show?

    By Belmo on Aug 10, 2012

  26. belmo - if u scroll up … someone did.

    By darth on Aug 10, 2012

  27. Yo Funkstahunk, all trolls please exit at the next bridge.

    By crazybaldhead on Aug 10, 2012

  28. Just who is this Kenyan than Ken talks about? I seriously doubt that Ken cares about the “Judeo” part of that 2000+ years of religious dogma. I recommend that Ken listen to the opener of this amazing set: “Love and only love will endure. Hate is everything you think it is. Love and only love will break it down.” That’s the politics I can buy into, Ken.

    By matt_the_cat on Aug 11, 2012

  33. Darth, you are dead on about the Albuquerque show. But the closest I’ve come so far is this video

    (Please ignore references to Buffalo Springfield. Dunno what this guy is on…)

    By golgo hakase on Aug 11, 2012

  34. there are a bunch of clips of it on youtube but thats not what i want. i knew about the albuquerque show way ahead of it happening and the set list about 3 hours after it happened. i was trying to find it about 90mins after it happened cuz i knew people who would post it the minute they got home. i cant believe they didnt. and now its been 8 days and its still not up. (pout)
    im glad u are done trying to catch me in errors and making mistakes etc. i actually usually know what im talking about. most of the time anyway. stop making me back up everything please. sometimes its ok to just take people at their word. not everyone is lying all the time. ya know?

    By darth on Aug 12, 2012

  35. ???
    That’s it for me. I’m out.

    By golgo hakase on Aug 12, 2012

  36. Golgo get used to it, he shits on everyone at some or other. the sad thing is he doesn`t even realize it.

  37. On June 30th, 2012 GARTH HUDSON and DEADMAN will host an official tribute to Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Levon Helm and the music of The Band at Sweden’s Peace and Love Festival any one out there have this one please

    By the duke on Aug 12, 2012

  38. judge is right, golgo, dart’s a sad case. He’s probably afraid you might know something he doesn’t, so you have to be insulted and dismissed. Now you can join the long list of his “harassers”.

    By sking on Aug 12, 2012

  40. i didnt shit on anyone. two times he tried to show me up and catch me being wrong and say ooh ooh look how i gotcha. the first time while there was only one more track than the first show i agreed there was actually 2 different songs as opposed to the info actually posted on the site itself where i got it. i went by that when i said what i said about it. so my info by way of their info was incorrect. the 2nd time i wasnt wrong but i had to prove it. why do i have to do this?? just to get someone to say oops?? and then to have some asshole say that i shit on everyone? no i dont shit on everyone. i certainly didnt shit on u. if someone shits on me ill shit on them right back. dont insult my intelligence. i can tell when someone is fucking with me. the problem was evident. dont purport to claim what i realize and what i dont. u dont know anything about me.

    By darth on Aug 12, 2012

  41. duke - i dont see anything for a full show in one location however i found a few songs posted on youtube. heres one song..

    it seems dylan did a nice set there last year. and i found 14 pages of set lists by other people who played there in the years they have had this festival going on. garth’s name is so far down on the announcement page for this years festival im surprised if anyone recorded his entire set.

    By darth on Aug 12, 2012

  42. btw… very interesting page here -

    By dingus on Aug 12, 2012

  44. come on in the waters fine !

    By water skiing on Aug 12, 2012

  45. why does dingus respond to a comment directed at barth?

    By sking on Aug 13, 2012

  46. sking - funny thing about that huh? he acknowledged that he was all the same person a few weeks ago. he was using a sherlock name when i pointed it out that he was harassing me under several names around the time he was busy denying it.
    so… have those sf neil shows turned up anywhere? theyre not on tube yet. altho 5 dylan shows have been posted since depositfiles tore down all pre aug 7th links.

    By bingus on Aug 13, 2012

  51. I’ll pass along your sentiments, I’m sure he’ll appreciate it! He didn’t want to discuss personal issues here, that would be obnoxious :-)

    By dingus on Aug 13, 2012

  52. sometimes its ok to just take people at their word. not everyone is lying all the time. ya know?
    By darth on Aug 12, 2012
    just some of the time then ?

    By bingle sized hole on Aug 13, 2012

  53. yes some people lie. i dont. some do. the point is.. to assume that everyone is always lying and therefore to automatically disbelieve everyone is ridiculous and stupid. u shouldnt go thru life that way. its wrong. as i said.. sometimes its ok to just take people at their word! YOU BUNGHOLE!

    By darth on Aug 14, 2012

  54. I have been a big proponent of why can’t we all just get along. I just wanted to share e-mails I recently found on an e-mail account I rarely go to. Darth,It’s nice to share but do not berate people if they have lives outside the world of music and do not respond in timely fashion:

    E-mail #1
    From: “[email protected] To: [email protected]

    im thinking some of u may not have this. no one here is
    talking and no one is trading. no one is bothering to vine
    and no one bothers to respond to my beggings or pleas to
    start up anything. i guess i probably have more than ill
    ever need and will likely ever be able to listen to but i
    would sure like to hear what tuna and jorma is doing at
    the moment. i havent heard anything cept for the radio
    thing i sent thru last year and that was only a few mins.
    no one wants to share with me.. and that’s alright. ill
    just accept that. meanwhile ill share with u all what i
    have by offering some downloads. this is a 4 cd set of
    airplane outtakes and a bit more stuff that many of u
    might not have. the links are interchangeable so u can
    dl one from one source and another from another and
    get it faster that way. if u dont.. u can only get one
    at a time from any one source. know what i mean?
    this is really good shit.. trust me on this.
    if u dont like that im sharing this. . tough shit. its flac
    files by the way.
    if u have questions.. ask me. u can either write thru the
    list.. or privately. i dont care.
    if u want to show me some appreciation by sharing with me
    something from the last year.. tuna or jorma related..
    but please.. no starship reunion shows from the recent
    tour.. write to me and ill share my address so u can do that.
    personally i think the crap that is touring or just finished
    touring.. was well.. crap.

    E-mail #2 shows your true colors:

    To: [email protected]
    Date: Thursday, May 31, 2012, 6:17 PM

    ten days ago i sent this thru and im sure with the many
    people on this list at least a couple even one person in
    this group had to have said wow.. i think ill download
    that 4 cd set for myself. and not one fucking person
    took the time to write in and say thanks or or comment
    or anything. not one single message in ten days. wow!!!
    not one mail on this group in months and months and
    months. nothing.

    By Tuna fan on Aug 14, 2012

  55. I love Hot Tuna BTW. It’s a shame that Jorma and new wife Vanessa are so anti-downloading. I guess they have to protect the brand.

  56. “no one bothers to respond to my beggings or pleas”

    By barth on Aug 14, 2012

  57. yes it shows my true colors. it shows that i share with a group that has 100+ members perhaps 200 or more members and no one has written into the group in 2 years. not one person has written in. the groups purpose is to share music. no one and i repeat.. no one writes in. the only thing that happens on the group is spam. i write into the group and offer downloads of rare music every so often. i have repeatedly done this. i have offered several jorma solo shows. i have offered a few tuna shows and i have offered a few airplane items. this time however as u can see above i offered a 4 cd download of extremely rare outtakes demos alternates etc. the collection was incredible. i know that many many people on the list that i have been part of for nearly 4 years have jumped on that. not one single idiot there had the chutzpah to even thank me for posting the links. not one. yes i think that i should have gotten a thank u. people should take the time to show some appreciation that i took the time and made the effort where i didnt have to. the list/group members have all but given up trying to make the list something worth being on. there are people on that group who tried to make it worthwhile and start up a vine or a weed. i tried to get things moving repeatedly. i gave up finally. the people on there are brain dead and they just dont care. i guess they either have enough music or they have other sources. i do too. thats fine. tuna is a little harder to get ahold of than most other groups because they wont let dime or demonoid (which seems to be history i heard) offer their stuff up for downloading. thats fine. i have a few 100 items so i guess ill be content with what i have.

    what i dont understand is what u are doing here. what are u trying to say? what true colors are u trying to embarrass me by showing of mine? that im altruistic? that all i ask in return for offering free sharing of my finds is a thank u? omg. how terrible of me. holy crap i guess u caught me huh?
    i like when people share. i joined the damned group on yahoogroups so i could get more. why do u think i got on that group in the first place??? i have been on that group/list for about 4 years. i have gotten some stuff and i have shared everything i have received and shared a lot too. after writing in numerous times i got exasperated that people werent writing in to say anything.

    as far as berating people who have lives outside of music.. i didnt do that. if u are part of a group or a list.. that is 100 or 200 or more strong.. no u dont have to write in… but no one.. i repeat.. no one cept me was writing in. maybe there were 300 people on that list. in over 2 years!!!! no one wrote in. not one person other than me.
    the entire point of the list is to write in. ever heard of the saying.. either shit ot get off the pot?

    the first line u typed is incredibly hypocritical.
