"One for the curious and the completists."

More Neil Young More Neil Young

Neil Young continues his archival Performance Series releases, this time chronicling the latter part of the '80s, which for many fans was a head-scratching and frustrating period.

On the back of the This Note's For You album, he hit the road with a full band including organ and horn section, applying that sound to his back catalogue. Here, '80s saxophone solos collide with Young's ragged guitar solos, often in thrilling fashion, but fans will invariably react with love or hate to this sprawling double album. The drawcard is seven unreleased songs and a muscular 19-minute version of Tonight's The Night. One for the curious and the completists.
