This is essential, live Neil Young of the highest caliber. Hard to think of a more captivating and passionate performance ever committed to tape, especially as it’s just one lovestruck and inspiried 25 year old dude with an acoustic guitar, harmonica, piano and a lot of back pain (he was suffering from a slipped disc back injury).
Neil’s longtime producer, David Briggs, wanted Neil to release this live album (which contained mostly brand new unrecorded/unreleased songs at that time) back in 1971 but instead Neil shelved it and went to Nashville to record Harvest, which became his first number one album (and first number one single, Heart of Gold) on the charts and the biggest album of Neil’s career and Briggs still felt Massey Hall should’ve been put out instead. Years later, Neil agrees it should’ve come out between After The Gold Rush and Harvest.
I have no qualms saying Massey Hall is one of the greatest live albums ever. This vinyl pressing (and the CDs) sound incredible. Solo acoustic Neil Young in top form.
