Neil Young to Release "Live at the Cellar Door" on November 26

New (but old) Neil Young music is on the way!
The Canadian singer and songwriting treasure will release Live at the Cellar Door, the latest in his Archives Performance Series, on November 26 on Reprise Records.
Here's the critical intel about the record.
The album collects recordings made during Young's intimate six-show solo stand at The Cellar Door in Washington D.C. between November 30 and December 2, 1970, a few months after Reprise released his classic third solo album After the Gold Rush in August.
It's certainly a "must own" for collectors, classic rockers and Young fans.
Of the many unique gems found on Live at the Cellar Door, a rare solo version of "Cinnamon Girl" performed on piano rather than guitar is a particular treasure for Neil fans; the full band version appears on Young's 1969 second solo album Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.
Live at the Cellar Door features early, raw performances of songs that wouldn't appear until subsequent Young albums, including the rarity "Bad Fog off Loneliness" (which appears on Live at Massey Hall '71 - released in 2007-- but was previously unreleased until the studio band version was included on Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972) and "Old Man" (released two years later on 1972's Harvest album). "Down by the River," also from Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, rounds out the spectacular set.
As with Young's previous releases in the Archives series, Live at the Cellar Door will be released digitally, on CD, and on 180-gram vinyl.
