    Play.com Review

    Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968 is the third live release from folk rock legend Neil Young's Archive Performance Series. The follow-up to the previous well-received instalments, Live At Massey Hall 1971 and Live At The Fillmore East, Sugar Mountain is a spine-tingling collection of live performances that offers an intriguing early-career snapshot of one of the world's most respected singer-songwriters.

    Sugar Mountain is compiled from the recordings of two acoustic shows at the Canterbury House in Michigan, USA, where the talented Neil Young, aged only 22, would tentatively take his first steps towards a sublime solo career. Having recently departed influential folk rock outfit, Buffalo Springfield, where he lent a dark and ghostly presence as their lead guitarist and songwriter, Young set out in 1968 to road test material as a new found solo artist. Recorded on the 9th and 10th November 1968, the concerts were held just days before the release of his prolific self-titled debut album. Relying on the established hits that he had racked up with Buffalo Springfield, including 'Mr. Soul', and a touching version of 'Expecting to Fly', Neil Young introduced his unreleased original solo material to the Canterbury House crowd. The adaptations of established and original tracks are both fragile and intimate. In pristine vocal form, Young delivers songs such as 'The Old Laughing Lady' with stripped-down precision. While, 'Birds'and 'If I Could Have Her Tonight', show tangible vulnerability with melancholy melodies, the spinning 'Winterlong' and 'The Loner' recall chilling stories and exude humbling charm under lightly strumming strings. These delicate tones and flagrant hooks feature in all of Sugar Mountain's tracks and are palpable traits that Neil Young would continue to revisit over his illustrious career.

    Recorded on a two track tape recorder, all the tracks are stripped of any extravagant production and capture the raw intensity and intimacy of the performance with unmistakable charm. Showcasing the folk-rocker's fragile vocal style and lyrical ability with immediacy and freshness, Sugar Mountain is a fascinating live release that will introduce and delight fans, new and old, with the sound of a youthful Neil Young.

    Part 00 of the Neil young archive Performance Series or so the spine tag tells us, is a must have for any Neil Young fan. Sublime performances from a young man (no pun intended) on the threshold of a mega career. Recorded between the demise of Buffalo Springfield and the launch of Neil Young the solo artiste, it highlights Neil in the throws of producing some of his very best acoustic material. A great insight into the workings of a then quite young man making his way in the folk/rock world. It would appear from his monologues that his writing and production levels were at thier peak, writing some of his most well known and highly regarded material. One is forced to wonder what effect the release, at the time of making, of this recording would have had on his subsequent career. It may have resulted in Young being 'pigeon-holed' as a folkie. I'm sure the man himself would have hated that. A testimony to the very best of singer songwriters and much over-used but thoroughly deserved epithet of Superstar. Listen well my children and enjoy, you may not get the chance again. Well not at least until he finally releases Archives Vo 1. Bonus of a great cover picture of Neil by none other then the soon to become Mrs Linda McCartney. Recommended *****

    It's Neil Young... Enough said. The man is a legend. This live show was just the solo beginning of one of the most unique, versatile, influential and respected musicians of all time.
