Beautiful 1973 2nd Steamboat Label (No "Stereo" On Bottom Of Label). Comes With The Giant Fold-Open Lyric Sheet Housed In A Textured Cover. “Anyone Who Has Followed Neil Young's Career Knows Enough Not To Expect A Simple Evening Of Mellow Good Times When They See Him In Concert, But In 1973, When Young Hit The Road After Harvest Had Confirmed His Status As A First-Echelon Rock Star, That Knowledge Wasn't Nearly As Common As It Is Today. Young's Natural Inclinations To Travel Against The Current Of Audience Expectations Were Amplified By A Stormy Relationship Between Himself And His Touring Band, As Well As The Devastating Death Of Guitarist Danny Whitten, Who Died Of A Drug Overdose Shortly After Being Given His Pink Slip During The First Phase Of Tour Rehearsals. The Shows That Followed Turned Into A Nightly Exorcism Of Young's Rage And Guilt, As Well As A Battle Between Himself And An Audience Who, Expecting To Hear "Old Man" And "Heart Of Gold," Didn't Know What To Make Of The Electric Assault They Witnessed. All The More Remarkably, Young Brought Along A Mobile Recording Truck To Capture The Tour On Tape For A Live Album And The Result, Time Fades Away, Was A Ragged Musical Parade Of Bad Karma And Road Craziness.If The Performances Are Often Loose And Ragged, They're Also Brimming With Emotional Force, And Despite The Dashed Hopes Of "Yonder Stands The Sinner" And "Last Dance," "Don't Be Denied" Is A Moving Remembrance Of Young's Childhood And What Music Has Meant To Him, And It's One Of The Most Powerful Performances Young Ever Committed To Vinyl. Few Rockers Have Been As Willing As Young To Lay Themselves Bare Before Their Audience, And Time Fades Away Ranks With The Bravest And Most Painfully Honest Albums Of His Career — Like The Tequila Young Was Drinking On That Tour, It Isn't For Everyone, But You May Be Surprised By Its Powerful Effects.” Mark Deming, AMG.

Time Fades Away

Another Brilliant and unrepentant Live LP from Mr Young! This set finding him "headed for the ditch" and the rough side of town after the As See More
