Neil Young and Crazy Horse Live at the Fillmore East (Reprise) It's been a long time coming but Neil Young has finally opened up his treasure trove. Throughout a 40-odd year career, Young has made countless recordings - both in the studio and with his various live acts - and he has stowed them away wisely. Luckily for fans, he has decided against one all-encompassing box set or a compilation of the finest individual moments from these recordings. Live at the Fillmore East is the first in what promises to be a regular outpouring of defining moments in Young's career as part of his Performance Series Archives. And first he takes us back to 1970 and the glorious Everybody Knows This is Nowhere. Much of the poignancy of the concert comes from the fact that alongside Young is guitarist Danny Whitten, who would die of an overdose two years later and whose death would haunt his friend for decades. Whitten's superb Come on Baby Let's Go Downtown is the standout on the night, as both he and Young trade blows across the groove laid down by the rhythm of bassist Billy Talbot and drummer Ralph Molina. As live acts go, Young and Crazy Horse are about as tight as they come, as evidenced on the rollicking Down by the River and the epic Cowgirl in the Sand, which clocks in at 16 minutes. And not a second is wasted. The only down side of the exercise is that it's not a full live show - it only offers Young's work with Crazy Horse (minus one track) and not the acoustic set with which he opened the night. But that's a minor concern. Live at the Fillmore East is a triumphant trip back in time.
