Neil Young: Live at the Fillmore East

Barney Hoskyns, Uncut, January 2007

IN THE CONTINUING absence of his Archives we clutch at any morsels dispensed from Neil Young's table. Long a live bootleg classic - as well as being the source of Tonight's the Night's 'Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown' - Neil's March 1970 sets at the Fillmore East showcased the rising star of grungy country rock in the company of the band that helped him find his musical feet on 1969's cracklingly great Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.
