Tribute to Neil Young


David Crosby, Graham Nash, Steven Stills, Neil Young
and many more


Manic Depression was one of those Italian labels that appeared at the end of the '80s selling hard-to-find live concerts on CDs for the first time. This was among the earliest CSNY CD bootlegs with a professionally designed cover and quite a nice selection of rarities all in very good sound.

The main part of this bootleg was a CSNY concert from June of 1970 that is supposedly at Lakehurst in New Jersey. It is a nice soundboard with very good to excellent sound.

The label wanted to showcase Neil Young's talents from the beginning and included early demos, work with his band The Squires and Buffalo Springfield. Whoever was the source offered pretty high quality tapes, the seven 1965 demos that Young will hopefully release on his archive set and even a couple of Buffalo Springfield acetates and demos.

Even Buffalo Springfield's performance at Monterey Pop, left off the official release, shows up here. This incomplete show has never been released even after 40 years. Only one track, For What It's Worth, was finally released in June 2007 on a Razor & Tie Monterey Pop collection.

The CSNY show has seven Young songs out of the show's 18. The Young medley of The Loner, Cinnamon Girl and Down By The River boasted his talent as guitarist and soloist. The 13-minute long Southern Man closed the show in fine hard rock tradition. With Neil Young, CSN gained a harder sound to offset their folky image.

Consider Tribute To Neil Young a fan's dream of what his archive release will be. This was a great start to the CD bootleg era. Thanks to the folks at Manic Depression, whoever you are.
