Cellar Door

Chameleonic words. Wonder if Maxwell will find himself again.

“Here is Jackson Maxwell, Please share the link to my review of the new Neil Young album coming out on 12/10. http://www.guitarworld.com/acoustic-nation-first-listen-neil-young-s-live-cellar-door-releasing-december-10th “

It goes about Cellar Door, “Live At the Cellar Door is notable for containing Young’s first public performances of “Old Man” and “See the Sky About To Rain.” “Old Man” is still in its nativity. Stripped of the banjos, pedal steel, and soaring vocals of the version that would later appear on his next album, Harvest, it isn’t quite a masterpiece yet. However, “See the Sky About To Rain” is absolutely exquisite. Young’s piano playing moves the track along with more passion and power than the hazy, country-ish studio rendition that would appear three years later on On the Beach.”

    Time Tripping Back to 1970 with Neil Young: “Live at the Cellar Door”

    “Opening up and finding what’s inside me to write.”

    By Michael Goldberg.

    Neil Young bangs away at the chords. And there’s such sadness in his voice. He’s playing an acoustic guitar. He’s nearly finished his third song of the night. Banging away too hard. Or maybe the way he’s banging at those chords is perfect. And oh, the sadness.

    In that quavering voice he sings:

    Yes only love can break your heart, What if your world should fall apart?

    Love broke my heart, and my world fell apart. I was 17. When you’re 17 you don’t know you’ll recover. When you’re 17 everything about love is the first time, even if it’s not the first time.

    When you were young and on your own, How did it feel to be alone?

Pearl Jam is a band I have a lot of respect for. Nirvana and Sonic Youth I feel the same way about. Mumford & Sons, My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Givers, and Foo Fighters are just some of my favorites. I respect bands that give me something of themselves that I can feel. (\"Posing\" bands turn me off generally speaking.) It all has to do with a feeling I have about them. That is what music is to me, a feeling. It\'s similar with people too.
