Neil Young (solo acoustic) 1992-09-22 - Los Angeles

Neil Young
Solo Acoustic
Greek Theatre, Los Angeles, CA

Audience recording, Very Good Quality
mp3 @ 320 kbps

In early 1992, fresh from the studio where he laid down the tracks that would be released later that year as Harvest Moon, which was a return to the gentle, melodic, acoustic style of earlier albums like Harvest and Comes a Time, Neil set out on a solo acoustic tour that consisted of 4 separate legs and lasted through most of that year. During that tour he previewed virtually all of the songs from the upcoming Harvest Moon album, as well as a wide selection of songs from throughout his career. Many have said that they preferred the live acoustic versions of the Harvest Moon songs to the more slick and polished versions on the album itself. In 2010, Neil released a live album, Dreamin' Man, from this tour that consisted of only the songs from Harvest Moon performed at various concert locations. And, as good as that album is, the tour shows consisted of much more than just the Harvest Moon tracks, and it takes the full shows to fully appreciate the strength, power, and beauty of all the songs performed. So, here is a fine show from the third leg of the 1992 solo acoustic tour, still prior to release of Harvest Moon, where he features not only those 'new' songs, but wonderful performances of a wide range of his previous classics, performed solo, so you can get a tasete of the full shows performed on this tour. I started this string of Neil Young shows from the '90's with performances from his 1999 solo acoustic tour, and here we fittingly wrap it up with a stellar show from this wonderful 1992 solo acoustic tour. Listen to both tours and try to figure out which is better, or just enjoy them without comparing them at all.
