Sugar Mountain: Live At Canterbury House 1968
by Neil Young
Released: Nov 2008
Shakey has released some obscure treats from his early days, but Sugar Mountain is a revelation. Recorded not long after the breakup of Buffalo Springfield, here Young is a 22-year-old kid discovering himself before an intimate crowd at Ann Arbor's Canterbury House. He's a tad nervous, yet tells a ton of jokes while unveiling future classics ("Birds," "The Loner") and reworking some Springfield fare, the best of which just might be a "Mr. Soul" that's slowed down and stripped to its essentials.
