DELUXE VINYL EDITION!!!
Neil Young - Austin City Limits Vol.2
Austin City Limits, started as a showcase for country and roots performers, invited Neil Young to perform in 1984, a man never reluctant to mix and match his genres. Young had released the least popular and poorly received albums of his career in the years prior to this performance, lastly the rockabilly infused Everybody’s Rockin’ - an album which clocked in at a mere 29 mins - and before that the synth pop infused Trans. But for his ACL show Young had a hell of a band backing him in The International Harvesters. This group of Nashville cats may not have blown down arena doors with the same ferocity as Crazy Horse, but as this 1984 concert proves, they could more than hold their own with Neil Young, even on an extended version of concert favourite, the rocker ‘Down By The River.’ This quite sterling performance is now available in its entirety across this two instalment set, displaying perfectly what a wholly competent and enthralling outfit Neil Young & The International Harvesters were during this period.
