Uncut Review of “Live at the Cellar Door” – Unveiled NY Ultimate Music Guide

umgneil-youngcoverThe UK’s UNCUT has done it again in its ongoing love affair with Neil Young.

John Mulvey’s blog talks about the new release ‘Live at the Cellar Door” and its timing, just as the magazine was putting out its Uncut Ultimate Music guide dedicated to Young.

“Just as we thought we’d put together a comprehensive survey of all his recorded  work, another Archives Performance Series release crept onto the schedules,” Mulvey writes.

Also:” One of the great pleasures of ‘Live At The Cellar Door’  is the way it  illustrates how malleable Young’s songs can be. ‘Cinnamon Girl’, for instance,  is hardly diminished by that lunging riff being replaced by a quasi-baroque  flurry of notes. Listen out, especially, for a powerful moment when Young sings  ‘Loves to dance/Loves to…’ and allows himself to be overwhelmed as his playing  suddenly shifts from tenderness to a new bluesy intensity. ‘That’s the first  time I ever did that one on the piano,’ he notes at the death, and I’m not sure  he’s done it again many times since.”

The Neil Young Ultimate Music Guide  goes on sale towards the end of this  week.  The 148-page guide, through interviews from the NME, Melody Maker and Uncut archives,  reveals that, among many things, Young has been consistent in his contrary  single-mindedness. The new reviews of every one of his albums provide a  similarly weird and gripping narrative, finding significant echoes and hidden  treasures on even his most misunderstood and neglected ‘80s records.

I\\\'m really turned on by the new music I\\\'m making now, back with Crazy Horse. Today, even as I\\\'m talking, the songs are running through my head. I\\\'m excited. I think everything I\\\'ve done is valid or else I wouldn\\\'t have released it, but I do realize the last three albums have been a certain way. I know I\\\'ve gotten a lot of bad publicity for them. Somehow I feel like I\\\'ve surfaced out of some kind of murk. And the proof will be in my next album.
