First Public Performance of Mr. Soul
UPDATE: 5/12 - From comment:
It is most definitely not the first performance of "Mr Soul" and is a cleaned up version off a bootleg.
While the song was performed on TV many times (lip sync to the track) it was also played at live gigs as early as Feb 1967.
Beware of imposters and those who don't do their homework.
So, the lesson is to always check your "Ghosts On The Road".
Well, here's something to help get you in the mood for NYA while we cool our heels counting down the days for the Neil Young Archives.

Sorry, this video is very bad bad bad quality.
So, only 21 days, 3 hours, 47 minutes, and 12 seconds until the Neil Young Archives are released.
