NEIL YOUNG
Hollywood 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Solo live at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood, CA; March 30, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Emily Zemler at The Hollywood Reporter wrote:

Imagine Neil Young at home on his Northern Californian ranch. Mismatched decorative rugs hang on the walls, a black jacket dangles off a coat rack in the corner. A candle flickers atop an old pipe organ and another drips wax on a worn upright piano. The man himself, now 68 years old, putters around the room in a loose tan suit and black hat, seemingly trying to determine which instrument will best suit an acoustic rendition of one of his many songs. At first he sits in the center, encircled by eight guitars and a banjo, all scuffed by years of use, and selects the right one for From Hank To Hendrix, a number off his 1992 album Harvest Moon. It’s all very intimately wrought, except Young isn’t in his home; he’s onstage at LA’s Dolby Theatre…

Thanks to Falconidave (David Sell) for recording and sharing the show at Dime.

Falconidave noted:

I still can’t ever imagine life without Neil Young!! What an amazing experience back to back! Neil was very talkative and funny throughout the show, even in the face of “Mr & Mrs Cinnamon Girl” which pissed him off enough to yell a hearty “Fuck You!!” in their direction. The audience was enthusiastic and loud, I did much work knocking the applause down to a very tolerable level, and wiped out ill-timed claps by “late recognizers”.

The crowd around me was very respectful, and the Taping Gods were smiling indeed! The only editing done was decreasing the crowd noise between and during a couple songs, otherwise it’s raw and pure and rivals any Schoeps recording I have ever heard!

Also, thanks to Brian van der Brug (front cover picture, posted at latimes.com) and Timothy Norris (back cover picture, posted at laweekly.com).

  2. Been listening just yesterday to the gig at the Carnegie Hall back in January which is a wonderful record of the event so can’t wait for this. Similar set up and track listing too except here he adds Bobby’s ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’!
    Guy’s a global treasure and a wonderment
    Thanks Big O!

  4. Pretty amazing that a man of 68 can still sound as good vocally as way back when…impressive. Just put this on and let it run. Wow, great show and nicely recorded from the mezzanine, too. Funny, I have always really dug NY, but, is it just me, if you close your eyes and listen, doesn’t he sound like how Bruce Dern ought to sound if could sing? Thanks for this.

  5. What a pleasure to be able to leave a real comment about THE MUSIC here before all the bozos and trolls who haunt these pages ruin another discussion! Neil Young is indeed a classic artist, though now past his prime years, and obviously relishing the opportunity to tour as a solo artist doing a career retrospective at amazing venues across the USA and Canada. each of these shows is well worth a listen as he reinterprets some of his great old songs. As ’swappers’ points out, there are some different inclusions here including Philadelphia and If You Could Read My Mind that were not played at Carnegie Hall in January. Thanks for this, Big O!

  7. Neil is simply amazing…!!!

    with quite of few of his contemporaries regressing at this age Neil is getting better & better musically…stronger voice…stronger various instrument playing…pushing the envelope solo, with crazy horse…& of course independent personal endeavors environmentally and/or technology…

    purely subjective of course…

    Mr Soul has still got it…!!!
