Like a Hurricane

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon this tasty Neil nugget, after reading that it was supposedly "the best Neil Young bootleg" out there. The show was recorded on November 15, 1976 at the Auditorium Theatre, the same era that "Cortez" came into prominence and the same year our hero trotted onstage at the Last Waltz with a lil' icing on his nose. God bless America. But what I was really thrilled to hear was it is a really diverse performace which showcases Neil's multiple talents as both a songwriter and a shredder. I'll withhold my claims of its brilliance, if you promise me to to at least listen to the 9:46 "Down by the River." Got it?
