The Archives: Live at the Fillmore East
As has been reported recently, the first installment of the legendary Archives is scheduled for November 14, 2006 with Live at the Fillmore East from the March 6, 1970 early show's 2nd half electric set. The first acoustic set is inexplicably missing.
At this time, cover artwork is unavailable (but pre-orders are being accepted), so this would lead us to believe that after waiting 20 years for the successor to Decade this could really be the moment that Neil fans have been waiting on.
Incidentally, the above photo is of the cover of the bootleg LP from Thrasher's Wheat Archives.
Perhaps more interestingly, according to the German fansite Neil Young Info News, the long awaited Archives box set will no longer be in a box format. This comes from a discussion by site editor Jens Severin with the German product manager from Warner,
Achim Kamisli. The first installment of the Archives will be "Live At The Filmore East" with additional installments to follow.
Young has commented in the past that he had found Dylan's bootleg series to be a possible approach to his own archives.
- Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
- Down By The River
- Come on baby Let's Go Downtown
- Cowgirl in The sand
The new CD omits "Cinammon Girl" which appears on many of the widely circulated bootlegs of the soundboard under various titles such as Sunset Cowboy and Live in New York 1969 (sic). There has been speculation as to whether the forthcoming CD is from
early or late shows on March 6 and 7 or whether it is a compilation from the 4 shows.
