“Don’t let it bring you down / It’s only castles burning” Stunning solo acoustic version of “Don’t Let It Bring You Down”, Neil Young, Toronto’s Massey Hall, January 19, 1971.
This is a lot more than just “unplugged”. This is skin peeled back to the bone, heart bared, trial by fire for the fate of your eternal soul.
It’s also just a gorgeous performance of a song from the album that would wind up as the 8th best-selling album of 1971 in the US, After The Gold Rush. You probably know the song, and you may even know this version from the terrific Live At Massey Hall LP, but you ain’t heard nothin’ until you’ve seen this too.
