We can only guess what material will be included when Neil Young finally releases his long-promised Archives box set this year–we still think it may be a big joke, and Neil’s just going to put out eight discs of Landing On Water outtakes–but we’re hoping this 1974 live set will make the final cut. Recorded at an impromptu gig at New York’s Bottom Line, it features a handful of songs from On The Beach, Young’s initially maligned masterpiece, and an album that rarely got played live. The entire set makes for perfect Tuesday-morning listening–that is, if you like to spend your Tuesday mornings listening to songs about the soul-sucking nature of fame and the Manson killings.
