As we shared here @ TW in 2020,  songs from the 3 set "RUST BUCKET" concert were being screened on Hearse Theater Screen #2 | NYA

In 2019, Neil Young announced a major Archives discovery titled "RUST BUCKET".

The complete concert setlist is 20 songs with a running in total of 3 hours. (See Sugar Mtn for more details).

As noted earlier, a complete multi-camera video (6 cameras?!) was discovered in the NYA vaults. Produced and Directed by the late LA Johnson, the Neil Young & Crazy Horse concert was filmed on November 11, 1990 at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, California. (See Sugar Mtn for more details). Consisting of 3 sets, plus encore, the video is titled WAY DOWN IN THE RUST BUCKET. 
Here's an update from Audio Engineer John Hanlon on the earlier announced Archives discovery of Neil Young "unearthing" a major 1990 Crazy Horse concert. Audio Engineer John Hanlon writes on Times Contrarian | NYA about progress on transferring and mixing the audio from The Catalyst Club gig. (See J. Hanlon's Notebook | Times Contrarian | NYA)

Neil Young w/ Crazy Horse
Jack Nitzsche , Neil Young's producer/arranger on the masterpiece "Broken Arrow", has stated that Crazy Horse was the American equivalent of The Rolling Stones. IOHO, Crazy Horse is to Neil Young what The Band was to Bob Dylan. As perfect a complement as tequila and salt.

I was 15 that summer, I think Zuma came out in the summer. I was a "Doobie Brothers" fan and I forget what else (just starting to listen to the Grateful Dead). I had a job cleaning up scraps at construction sites. My brother's friend rolled in his (yes) VW van with "Don't Cry No Tears" blasting away. I thought: what the hell is that? This is the sound of the new Horse, and it was high voltage and beautiful all at once. (I started wearing flannel that year.)

Zuma was such a triumphant return for Briggs, who was imaginably frustrated with Young after getting ditched from what would become the On The Beach sessions in late ‘73 when he fell seriously ill early into the recording. A few days before, he’d had a version of Crazy Horse at the Ranch that included Ben Keith on slide in lieu of a second guitarist for at least three tunes: Winterlong, Walk On, and Bad Fog. These sessions gave way to a solo effort with Tim Mulligan at the desk; Borrowed Tune and Traces would remain unreleased until 1975 and 2020, respectively, and the NYA Cabinet provides the unique experience of hearing December 5th continue even further with first takes of Human Highway and Ambulance Blues. Presumably the demos’ file cards are still incomplete and Mulligan was recording these same-day brilliant moments too, but so far Neil Young is listed as the sole producer.

Listening to this period via the Cabinet is a fuller experience than the Vol II Disc 5 playlist, which felt a little light on unheard material. Now we have some added tracks from what Neil calls an “unsettled but quickly passing time,” starting with a new banjo/dobro version of Mellow My Mind (its original incarnation on the shelf with the rest of Tonight’s The Night). A week later, the superlative duo of Keith and Young cut For The Turnstiles with Briggs at the helm and as far as released tracks tell, that was it. Briggs, embittered after having been left behind while laid up, was not to return as producer until after the debut of Crazy Horse 3.0 when he hosted the Dume sessions. As for what Neil did in the studio the rest of that winter with Briggs gone, the Cabinet is not saying. Maybe those in possession of the Vol II box set book can shed some light on what was tracked in the months before Neil tried his new approach to the song Tonight’s The Night with a rhythm section of Greg Reeves and Ralph Molina on March 4, 1974. I find this brief era of Neil’s career fascinating: his second-guessing of Briggs’s doused Tonight’s The Night SIR nights with his own attempts at redoing some of those songs. Meanwhile toddler Zeke played with the original Briggs-produced master tapes Neil had been holding onto.

Only once Young and Briggs were reunited in Dume was Tonight’s The Night finally released. In the context of today’s Cabinet, On The Beach takes on an even more pronounced antipathy toward the blurry Tonight’s The Night times with its Walk On opening that signified a goodbye to that tour, the cynical ramble of For The Turnstiles, and the lushly produced and populated disenchantment of On The Beach proper recorded Spring of ‘74.
