Neil Young & Crazy Horse - 2012-09-29 - Central Park, New York

September 29, 2012
Live at the Global Citizen Festival, Central Park, New York City, NY

Excellent Palladia HD broadcast.
mp3 @ 320 kbps

Here's some new Neil Young from his current tour with Crazy Horse, and great stuff it is. If you have not yet heard his latest album, Psychodelic Pill (double album w/Crazy Horse), or any shows from this latest tour, you really should check it out. Even if you have been disappointed with Neil's last few albums, this is definitely a return to form, classic Neil, jammin' out with Crazy Horse. Certainly not afraid to just let the tracks go wherever he wants to take them, and just releasing them that way, there are 3 tracks that clock in at over 15 minutes each (and 1, Driftin' Back, at over 27 min.). In this concert recording, an excellent quality broadcast from the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, although it is a shortened festival set compared to his full-length concerts, Neil mixes in some of his standards with new tracks ('Born in Ontario', 'Walk Like a Giant', 'Twisted Road'), and the tone is clear, with Neil and his favorite veteran band, just tearing through these songs like they were half their advanced age. There's no question that Neil's still got it, and then some, and it is great to hear him carrying on like this, still with such passion, skill, and clarity.
