    Neil Young’s latest installment in his archival performances series, Live at the Cellar Door, is now streaming a week ahead of its release date (December 10th via Warner Bros. Records). The CoS Top Star-earning album collects recordings from Young’s intimate six-show solo stint at The Cellar Door in Washington D.C. between November 30th and December 2nd, 1970, which came in support of his album After the Gold Rush.

    Spanning 13 tracks, the album includes a rare solo version of “Cinnamon Girl” performed on piano; an early version of “Old Man”, which would be released on Harvest two years later; and the rarity “Bad Fog of Loneliness”. The set also features acoustic versions of several After the Gold Rush tracks and selections from the Buffalo Springfield catalog.

    As our own Henry Hauser notes, “Live at the Cellar Door reveals a singer-songwriter out to establish himself as an individual artist, rather than one component of a band. Stripped of vocal harmonies and electric guitars, the unadorned, raw songs feel unguarded and painstakingly earnest. The sound quality is impeccable on every single track, and Young’s voice has never been more emotionally charged.”

    Stream it below and grab it digitally, on CD, or on 180-gram vinyl next week.
