Neil Young began his run of solo shows in Los Angeles with two shows, which featured the first appearance of “Thrasher” in 36 years.

Young played the “Rust Never Sleeps” classic during his Saturday night set at the Dolby Theatre. Among other changes from the New York shows in January, Young included “Philadelphia”, “Harvest Moon” and a cover of the Gordon Lightfoot song “If You Could Read My Mind”.

“If You Could Read My Mind” will presumably figure on Young’s much-rumoured covers album, “A Letter Home”, along with Phil Ochs’ “Changes”. A couple more clues to the tracklisting appeared during the Sunday night show, as Young tackled Tim Hardin’s “Reason to Believe” and “Blowin’ In The Wind”.
