Apologies for the lack of action round these parts this week; we’ve been finishing off the next issue of Uncut, and starting fairly intensive preparations for the one after that. We have, though, still been working our way through the new arrivals, and I guess this week’s big one is the Neil Young “Sugar Mountain” live set.
If you haven’t heard about this one yet, it’s a recording of Young ostensibly kicking off his solo career at an Ann Arbor gig almost exactly 40 years ago. I’m planning to write plenty more about this one tomorrow, but suffice to say it’s mighty, and that the version of “The Last Trip To Tulsa” in particular is killing me right now.
Here’s the rest of the stuff, anyway. . .
