Neil Young Digs Out Yet More Rare Gems In London

Neil Young Digs Out Yet More Rare Gems In London

Neil Young continued to mix up his songbook at two more nights of his six-night London Hammersmith Apollo residency this weekend -- even going back to Buffalo Springfield's debut album on Saturday night (March 8).

In the first acoustic part of the evening, Neil Young treated fans to a double-whammy of 'Flying On The Ground Is Wrong' -- from Buffalo Springfield's 1966 debut, followed-up with Crosby, Stills and Nash track 'On The Way Home' from 4 Way Street their second album as a group.

Saturday night also saw Neil Young perform 'Winterlong' -- the track first released on his '77 best of collection Decade.

Sunday night at the Hammersmith Apollo also brought more songbook rarities, with Young finally playing Harvest's 'The Needle and the Damage Done' and finishing up with an incredibly surprising 'The Sultan' -- a single from Young's school band The Squires, recorded in his pre-Buffalo Springfield days.

Neil Young's UK dates continue tomorrow (March 11) with two nights at Machester's Apollo, before returning to London for a final two shows this week (March 14 and 15).

We will be publishing a review straight from Manchester first thing on Wednesday morning, so come back to uncut.co.uk for more Neil.
