    Its a shame the rest of the boots got pushed. dropping 5 bootlegs would give him some good press and promotion for the archives.

    A cool response from Neil to a letter about Jeff



    Unfortunately, Neil won’t be playing FarmAid this year

    Cool. I got my shipping notification this morning too. We moved house last week so I emailed them to see what they could do. They resent the order confirmation, and my new address is on the shipping email. Much better than the 'fingers crossed' response I got from 10C...

    How does it sound, acoustics, voice, recording, etc.?  Is it elite like Massey?

    As good as the past few live releases.

    Streamed this during the day. This a lot like the rest of the releases from this period.

    Out on Spotify. 

    Will collect these bootlegs over the other live releases I think.

    Ok, now that I have the LP, straight up, it’s his best sounding solo live record.

    I got it too... even though I didn't even realize that I pre-ordered, but I think Massey is better.  I also think his voice was stronger at Massey. It's definitely better than Cellar or Judy.

    Is there much chatter between song or just music?  I don't care for records that are broken up with lot of talk.  Fr better or worse, that's just how I am.  A little is OK- like Steve Wynn talking briefly two or three times throughout the entire four sides of The Dream Syndicate's, The Complete Live at Rajis- but more than that is just too much to keep my interest.

    No it has little chatter that I recall.  He did make a funny joke late, chiding the audience for applauding the opening to a song.  He said that all of his piano songs open the same so they couldn’t know what it was…and that he’s on to them.

    Carnegie Hall is a fantastic sounding pressing. Don't sleep on this one, get it while its still in print.

    This really is a beautiful sounding record, and it’s a phenomenal performance. It’s right up there with Massey Hall for me.

    If I have Massey Hall, Cellar Door, even Judy… do I really need Shakespeare AND Carnegie Hall? Can I actually skip both?

    I really have to fight the collector inside of me when it comes to NY

    I've got all 5 and I think Massey Hall & Carnegie Hall are the two must haves. You could skip Shakespeare if you had those two already. Shakespeare is also digitally sourced. All 3 of them have similar set lists but Massey & Carnegie have superior sound quality. Carnegie will be desired by NY collectors for years. If it goes out of print like some of PS releases, the price will go up.

    So, I kind of poo-hooed the Carnegie Hall release based on streaming it on NYA. I gave in a purchased the vinyl. I’ll no longer poo-hoo this release. It’s a beautiful. As others have said, it’s right there with Massey.

    Is that the one just released? On Amazon it’s 32.99? Is that right? I thought it was a lot more expensive when I was watching it a month or so ago

    It’s the one released the other week. Part of the new “bootleg” series. I paid $35 at my local spot.

    Hello, friends! Need some help here. I'd like to get some NY vinyl - one live and one studio. Where should I start? Thanks for any input.

    Yeah, because Massey Hall is out of print. 

    For studio, you can’t go wrong with After the Goldrush, Harvest, Everybody Knows this is Nowhere, Tonight’s the Night, or On The Beach

    I agree with all of those studio releases. I also really love Live Rust as a live album.
