VIDEO: Neil Young previews Live At The Cellar Door

Neil Young has posted a video trailer for “Live At The Cellar Door”, the latest in his Archives Performance Series, which will be released on December 10.

The album collects recordings made during Young’s intimate six-show solo stand at The Cellar Door in Washington D.C. between November 30th and December 2nd, 1970, a few months after the release of his classic third solo album, “After The Gold Rush.”

The album, which features Young performing on acoustic guitar and piano, includes a mix of solo and Buffalo Springfield tracks. It also includes early, raw performances of songs that wouldn’t appear until subsequent Young albums, including the rarity “Bad Fog Of Loneliness” (which appears on Live At Massey Hall ’71 – released in 2007- but was previously unreleased until the studio band version was included on Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972), “Old Man” (released two years later on 1972’s Harvest album), and “Down By The River” from “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.”

Of the many unique performances found on the project is a rare solo version of “Cinnamon Girl” played on piano rather than guitar, considered a particular treasure for Neil fans (the full band version appears on “Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.”

As with Young’s previous releases in the Archives series, “Live At The Cellar Door” will be issued digitally, on CD, and on 180-gram vinyl.
