What a joy for Neil Young fans, on one side you have the great man spilling his heart out with just an acoustic guitar in the London Hammersmith Odeon- always good, right? Never bad, but I get it, you love the rocking crunch of him playing with his pals Crazy Horse, well just wait till you flip the record and take a trip to Tokyo's great Budokan hall for the bangers. A perfect live record from one of the best to ever do it.
There are certain albums in the extensive Neil Young Archives that take on a unique life of their own. Maybe it's their rarity, or a galvanizing reputation that sets them apart. One of the most anticipated releases in this ongoing musical march is the live collection ODEON BUDOKAN, recorded with Crazy Horse,scheduled for September 1st, release via Reprise Records, Neil Young's home label for over 50 years.
Originally recorded in 1976 almost a world apart at two overseas venues: Hammersmith Odeon in Londonand Nippon Budokan Hall In Tokyo. The ten-track album includes an electrifying range of songs, from well-known classics to true surprises. Tracks on Side 1 were recorded in London March 31, 1976, and feature Neil Young's solo set on guitar and piano from the first half of the concert. Side 2 tracks were recorded two weeks earlier on March 11, 1976, with Young and Crazy Horse at an early electric apex.
This is the first official vinyl release of the previously unissued ODEON BUDOKAN. It has only been available on Compact Disc as part of Neil Young's ARCHIVES VOLUME II box set.
