Thanks for posting this!
I went to Amazon to check it out and there was video set to a pretty darn cool acoustic version of Powderfinger. I Love that song. He used to play it that way live a lot. That was how I was introduced to it. Then the only versions I could find were electric. And while I love it that way too. I always wanted an acoustic version and none of my Neil bootlegs have a decent acoustic version.
Link to the video...

I think I'll make an album today and never release it....
And I won't really care because I'll just keep making more....
Ridiculous talent + true rock'n'roll = Neil Young

Thanks for the reccomendation.
Neil Young is a perfectionist so I can see why he did not release it then in the 1970s.
The songs on the album were recorded in a single night. In his memoir Special Deluxe, Young described the session, "It was a complete piece, although I was pretty stony on it, and you can hear it in my performances... I laid down all the songs in a row, pausing only for weed, beer, or coke. Briggs was in the control room, mixing live on his favorite console."

I know what you mean, Newt, but it is still funny to read the sentence "Neil Young is a perfectionist."
The man has served up some of the most glorious ragged notes - Ragged Glory! - out there, delivering the sound that pleases him without compromise.

Neil has made hours of some of my favorite music ever made. He also has released even more music that that doesn't interest me at all. He's an artist I love to see live, but I have to know what I'm getting into. I've seen him with Crazy Horse, CSNY and solo and he was great each time. Other tours I'm glad I passed on. There are a few artists like that for me, but none probably as extreme as Neil.
