▶ This Is What Real Deal Neil Young Fans Are Like: Vinyl Review of Neil Young's "Cellar Door, 1970" & Carnegie Hall, 1/6/14

Have you ever wondered what it's like to journey inside a big Neil fan's head space?

Well, here's your chance in this wonderfully intimate review of seeing Neil Young at Carnegie Hall on 1/6/14 and a vinyl review of Live At The Cellar Door 1970.

The vinyl review of Live At The Cellar Door 1970 begins about ~14:00.

Hey Thrasher,

Here is my long overdue video talking about the Carnegie Hall show I attended and the Live At The Cellar Door LP. It's a little long but when it comes to Neil I always have much to say :)

I only went on Monday, the first night. I do wish I could've gone to more, but I was happy to have been there the one night. This was a special evening... it felt a little different from other Neil shows I've seen... maybe it was the venue... not sure. Perhaps it was a little poignant for Neil too seeing as he hasn't played there in so long and how important his first shows there were.

I've heard other nights were better, etc. but for me Monday was excellent. There was still that little bit of mystery as to what he was going to do. In the video I talk about hanging around the stage door before the'll see.

I also show a really cool, rare bootleg record at the end that was gift from another huge Neil fan.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy.

Talk to you soon.

Thanks for sharing this with us Tony aka SH aka MFB79! Terrific collection you've got going there.

Keep on spinning the black circle in the free world!

Very Cool! This was awesome to wake up to today. Thank you for posting, Thrasher. Glad you enjoyed.
I actually tried making this video before, but it was much longer and I didn't post it lol.

Hopefully there are many more shows and albums to review in the future!

Thanks again Thrasher, much appreciated!

firstly, I wanna thank mr. shitty horse fartboy for this review. summed it up perfectly. wife & I were there friday night & although the setlist was tweaked a bit, the vibe was the same.
anticipation on the last night was the same on the first in as much as you didn't know what to expect for a closer. Although the previous night's sets were similar (right down to Neil's one liners). It was the final night afterall.
Secondly, I wanna thank Mr. shitty horse fartboy for my newest addiction: VINYL.
A year ago he reviewed the Psychedelic Pill vinyl album which was like $80. I already bought the Bluray and was quite happy with the sound quality, although I do not have an audio system capable of 192 kHz/24Bit. My commentary @ the time was I didn't miss the skips, scratches & pops of records, the hiss of analogue tape masters and actually preferred the aesthetic sound and convenience of CD's. (I do agree with Neil - MP3's suck, BUT they are what they are - INSTANT GRATIFICATION).
Well, Mr. Shitty horse fartboy you opened my eyes (and my ears) with your response. basically I am no longer a careless, reckless teenager. I know how to take proper care of my possessions. I appreciate the tactile aspect and the artwork. I am no longer moving from apartment to apartment with milk crates full of record albums. I have since purchased an Audio Technica AT LP-120 turntable which I would recommend whole heartedly to anyone interested. I even rebuilt my sony bookshelf speakers w/ an inexpensive foam replacement kit after realising the vinyl bass rumble again.
Quality vinyl ain't cheap. this is an expensive hobby to be sure.
but quality doesn't cost as much as it pays.
My wife, of course, would beg to differ and has no such thanks for you, Mr. shitty horse fartboy!

Shittyhorse. Always so nice to get your perspective. You just get it... man, do you ever get it..

Peace, Sandy Horne

@Anonymous: That is awesome to hear! It's always great to know that something you do, no matter how small, has an positive impact on someone else. I say positive because I believe in the vinyl format. That's not to say I am uninterested in or don't enjoy other formats, nor that vinyl doesn't have it's drawbacks... I just think that vinyl is the ultimate canvas for recorded music. That being said, yes it can be expensive (as is any hobby/obsession... the deeper you get into it, the more costly) but the rewards are many. I cant tell you how much enjoyment I get out of my collection and there is nothing like unexpectedly finding a long time want out at a store or tag sale for cheap!
It also sounds like our wives could get together and commiserate! lol
Anyway, enjoy the ride!

@Sandy Thanks, so much! :) That means a lot coming from you.

shitty horse I wanted to continue my orig post from earlier but didn't wanna get long in the tooth. I couldn't agree with you more how alchemy with the horse was night/day/360 from carnegie shows. saw the boys @ MSG & Barclays (exact same setlist) had the floor for the capitol show, don't wanna talk about THAT.) anyway long time fan prob over 40 shows @ this point (stub saving became a late blooming hobby & print @ home has totally blown the count) ANYWAY saw the smell the horse tour in Feb 91 @ the nassau masoleum. wife & I were newlyweds and it was her first neil show (about my 5th or 6th but first with the horse). Great show (sonic Youth Opened), the old lady is hooked and we now live for horse shows. EXACTLY almost to the day one year later Neil is doing a week @ the old beacon theater. you gotta remember this is the age of the dial up modem, 9.6 kbs just gave way to 14.4 modems. no internet, message boards were in their infancy. everybody and his mothers brother is expecting the horse to come galloping into the beacon full bore. what do we get? harvest moon. night/day/360 AND brand new songs no one ever heard. UNRULY crowds? understatement. constant shout outs through the songs and LOUD BOOs followed. Neil actually said something like "I know what you wanna hear but those ain't these songs, new tour, new record. you know you people can look this stuff up now". I was floored. you could look it up? where? it was the dawning of a new age. we had only gone to that one show and it was early in the run. I had heard from other peeps that a recorded announcement played before each show that followed reminding people to be respectful of their neighbors and not call out songs. a selection of favorites would be played for the second half. & I distinctly NO encore. Neil was pissed. a buddy who went towards the end of the week said people were applauding wildly after harvest moon was done but he wasn't sure if it was because it was over or they liked it. we did. liked it, NOT LOVED it. he also mentioned how neil dead stopped mid song and asked the audience not sing along. he said HE wasn't even sure of the words yet! thank god for the internet & teleprompters. Neil has def mellowed.
the "outbursts" @ carnegie were exactly not. pure hyperbole.

Well anonymous, had to chime in on your post. I have not been to anywhere near the number of NY shoes as many of the folks here. But I was at the Beacon Harvest moon shows, the recent shows at Barclays and MSG, and had tickets for the floor at the Capitol Theatre. My distinct memory of that Beacon show was the repeated shouting of Sugar Mountain by folks in the crowd. Was more than a little surprised by the exact same encore at the Barclays, and thought the Cap was really going to be something special. Missed Carnegie for a variety of reasons.

But let's not give up hope. Could not believe when he rounded up the boys again for Europe and that tour ends early August. They're going to have to do something when they get back here, right? Noteworthy that it seems to be a priority in Europe to go places that were cancelled, and one of the shows even had a special pre-sale. I know there was a lot of griping, but who else does that? Let's keep our fingers crossed for the Cap!
