Comment of the Moment: Archives Guy on ‘Live at the Cellar Door’
The Comment of the Moment is by Archives Guy on Neil Young’s ‘Live at the Cellar Door’ is a window into D.C.’s musical past - The Washington Post with some tantalizing hints.
But first, the setup question by Kimball:
Hey Thrasher and other friends,Over to you Archives Guy!
I have my Cellar Door vinyl and I have my CD. I have not yet listened to them though. Waiting for the right time. I checked Sugar Mountain and it says no known recordings or boots exist from the 6 Cellar Door shows in Dec 1970. So this is a truly fresh look into the past.
Its interesting to consider the Performance Series releases.
Canterbury House Late 1968,
Riverboat Early 1969;
Cellar Door Late 1970,
Massey Hall Early 1971
Neil shoehorned the Cellar Door in at position 2.5 after the others were released with integer indexes. I can't wait til a raw Time Fades Away show is released at position PI (3.14159...)
This is great. But I have a question for Archives Guy: What in the world is up with not having a high resolution digital release of Cellar Door? I'm looking for a 24/192 blu-ray or DVD-Audio. Is it Pono or nothing from this point forward? That's fine as long as Pono makes it across my home's threshold. (Not ignoring the high resolution of the our analog vinyl, I just find the simplicity of using high resolution digital so convenient and pleasing.
Please keep us buried in bits out here!
Kimball-OK, thanks Archives Guy. Now back to work at the Shakey Pictures shop. Sometimes the waiting is the hardest part.
Your question will be answered in a short time and I think you will be pleased with the answer.
