Neil Young Preps New Archival Live Album Dreamin' Man
Published Sep 02, 2009Just in case we didn't already get enough, a mere three months after Neil Young's massive Archives Volume One box set came out, the Canadian rocker has announced a new disc of archival live material will be released on November 2.
Called Dreamin' Man, the record is a complete live performance of Young's classic Harvest Moon album, culled from various acoustic solo shows that went down in 1992. And as some fans may have guessed by now, it comes as the latest live disc in Young's ongoing Archival Performance Series.
While there isn't much more to report on Dreamin' Man, which comes with the cover above, there is a bit more to relay on the live front. As previously reported, Young will be playing a benefit for the Sarah McLachlan Foundation on September 12 in Vancouver. Then, on September 14, the Jonathan Demme-directed Neil Young Trunk Show, a documentary of a 2007 concert in Philadelphia, plays at the Toronto International Film Festival. Young will also be playing at the annual Farm Aid and Bridge School benefit concerts.
Apart from that, Young's 2009 is pretty open. Fans are surely hoping for some gigs with Crazy Horse, as they haven't played together since early 2004, but for now that remains a mere wish. In the meantime, there will no doubt be more rare live material released soon enough.
