Neil Young – Carnegie Hall

Carnegie-Hall

guess the setlist…

“Young will perform at Carnegie Hall on January 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th. While it’s unclear how the set lists will look, Young built his recent Farm Aid set around cover songs by 1960s and 1970s songwriting greats like Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Tim Hardin and Phil Ochs. “[Ochs] was one of the greatest poets that ever lived,” Young said from the stage. “Last time he appeared in public was at Carnegie Hall. He wore a gold lamé suit. He was a folk singer. He was a little bit sidetracked by fame and commerciality.”

 

More “Cellar Door” praise, but it gets so sappy

4976c8c0Album reviews of Neil Young’s newest soon-to-be released “Cellar Door” can be churned out ad nauseam. How many can we read?

Henry Hauser’s review at  Consequence of Sound, an on-line music publication, tells  the story of what happened in 1970, starting with a failed CSN&Y recording session at Young’s home in Hawaii.

Instead, band members went their separate ways and put out their own solo albums that made Billboard’s top 15. Young’s released  “After the Gold Rush,” but, Hauser writes –  not surprisingly – not everyone got behind it.

“Langdon Winner dismissed it as unlistenable, likening Young’s voice to ‘pre-adolescent whining.’ Not to be outdone by his erstwhile bandmates, the competitive Canadian continued writing new material and scheduled back-to-back concerts at Carnegie Hall.”

“Hoping to shake off the cobwebs following a five-month layoff, Young played a series of warmup gigs at The Cellar Door, an intimate D.C. music club. Live at the Cellar Door, the most recent installment in Young’s Archive Performance Series, captures these six solo sets.”

Of the music, Hauser gets sappy, using words like poignant, purposeful, ardent, penetrating, enthralling, dreamy, superb, wistful. There may be a record number of adjectives used in this review.

“The introspective ‘Tell Me Why’ finds the singer grappling with unsolvable quagmires in a wounded, elegiac timber (‘Is it hard to make arrangements with yourself?’).”

What? Hello? I need a cigarette…

\"What is it about JJ Cale’s playing? I mean, you could say Eric
Clapton’s the guitar god, but... he can\'t play like JJ,\" Young told
biographer Jimmy McDonough. \"JJ’s the one who played all that s---
first... And he doesn’t play very loud, either — I really like that
about him. He’s so sensitive. Of all the players I ever heard, it’s
gotta be Hendrix and JJ Cale who are the best electric guitar players.
JJ’s my peer, but he doesn’t have the business acumen — he doesn’t have the idea of how to deal with the rest of the world that I do. But
musically, he’s actually more than my peer, because he’s got that thing.
I don’t know what it is.\"
