Live on Sugar Mountain Release Source

There's been some speculation about what exactly the upcoming release of "Live On Sugar Mountain" will be based on. Scheduled for release on September 29, the next installment of the Archives Performance Series has been rumored to be 1969 The Riverboat shows or a variation of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion concert in Los Angeles on the last night of Neil Young's early-1971 solo tour.

After receiving a pretty good tip that the answer was laid out in Pete Long's indispensable Ghosts On The Road - Neil Young In Concert and some digging around, we've concluded that "Live On Sugar Mountain" is from the Canterbury House, Ann Arbor, Michigan concerts on November 9 & 10, 1968.

From Ghosts On The Road - Neil Young In Concert:
"Five of the six sets were recorded and the live version of Sugar Mountain that has appeared on the B-side of many of young's singles comes from November 10."

So that's our bet. We'll have to see what the exact setlist will be when the release information becomes available in a short while. That is assuming the release isn't postponed for Toast!

I remember my Dad and I driving Neil down to the Bali-Hi Inn in Windsor, Ontario right around the Ann Arbor gig. We had a nice visit and Neil did a great show. I recall that he recorded that one as well. Maybe it'll turn up some day.

BTW -- why the fuck do I have to sign up for a wretched Google account just to post here?

I've always wondered - is the Expecting to Fly version performed on the piano, or did he just use a guitar for all of the songs?

Sugar Mountain is indeed from Ann Arbor, but alas it is not coming out this year. That's the word I got directly from Neil's publicist two weeks ago when I was trying to confirm the Uncut story.

Damn, i really like the Sugar Mountain on Decade, so it would have been cool to hear more music from those shows. Hope Sugar Mountain live will be on Archives.

I hope to listen THIS performance...from 1968...but the Riverboat was the main rumour on internet about the next Neil PS series...I have to think that will be the 1969 gig because if you scroll the page of the archives you'll notice that in the middle of list you'll find the unreleased song "1956 Bubblegum" that he played only on those gigs at Riverboat...or Neil's staff is goin to release the 1968 performance as a PS1 and the Riverboat show on the Archives??? WOW!!!! Two different acoustic concerts of early times within a few months...what a shot!!!

This release just doesnt sound right.

The PS series are numbered in chronological order. Riverboat 69 vol 1, Fillmore 70 vol 2 and Massey Hall 71 Vol 3.... a 68 show doesnt seem to fit this timeline. Unless maybe it was found and mastered after this original order was put together

Having said that - the more releases the better in my opinion ..

I scrolled through Billboard upcoming releases section, and there is no showing of a new Neil Young release of any kind for 29th september.

I scrolled through Billboard upcoming releases section, and there is no evidence of a Neil Young new release of any kind for september 29th, so I think that we are still discussing, as it often happens with Neil cds, about a cd that maybe will never come out (excpet in the Archives, for which everyone, inlcuding myself, is free of dreaming on about release dates and other kind of fantasies and illusions)

I believe we're getting Sugar Mountain and Clancy from the Canterbury House shows on the Archives....

I saw Neil Young at La Cave in Cleveland, Ohio back in 1967 or early 1968: is there any history on the actual date who was playing with Neil? It was my first date in high school: if I could only remebr her name.

I was hoping that this would be the LP from the bootleg: "Live on Sugar Mountain, 2/1/71". I have a vinyl copy that is in pretty decent shape, but am always looking for digital replacement. The bootleg above is the last show of his early '71 tour at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in L.A. The "recording" is a lo-fi done by an audience member.
