Neil Young and Crazy Horse - Back on the Saddle (Spring '76)

Old man, look at my jeans
With news that there's (maybe? sort of?) a new (old) Neil Young album on the way, I was reminded of another Young mix I made. This one came after I decided to clean up my hard drive, but couldn't do without any of Young/Crazy Horse's spring 1976 tour.

After all, this was their first tour as a unit - I'm not counting those weird California shows they did in 1975 - and the music is loose, ragged and a lot of fun. And every show has it's moments, but they took up a ton of space. So I took my fave moments, arranged them like a show would've gone, and here ya go: an acoustic set, then a lengthy electric one. I cheated a little, and stuffed it with a little of everything they played - including a super rare version of "Last Trip to Tulsa" which I think they only played once. "Sad Movies," meanwhile, was played a few times and then Young didn't play it again for 30 years. Still hasn't released it, either.
