My First Neil Young & Crazy Horse Concert: Boston Music Hall November 22, 1976 (Early Show)


Excuse me for mixing a little early and late into the soundcloud


The very first night I saw Neil & Crazy Horse they encored with "Homegrown" (in honor of his new 2017 release of his unreleased 1975 LP) but I was home asleep in my dorm at prep school.  This was the era of separate admissions (7pm and 10pm) and you must be home before Mr Cobb finds out.
As I skipped out on a weekend from Andover during my Senior Year to see Neil Young & Crazy Horse rock the Boston Music Hall where I had seen the Dead twice earlier that year in June. Note that I had seen tthe short lived Stills Young Band at the Garden just two weeks after the Dead.

Since I had a 11pm curfew (or was it 1030?), I could only stay for the seperate admission first show.  And since I bought a single ticket the night of the show, I sat in the Front Row, stage left. Crazy huh. Maybe I paid $8.50.  And sure enough 15 or 20 yearslater  I discovered that the first show this night was a classic Neil Young bootleg with numerous versions and numerous covers.

This is a monster show (actually two monster shows) which is a greatest hits. Can you imagine, all those Neil jams back to back to back to back to back from the front row.  I would only see a few more shows in my life, but very happy that a young version of me who had only seen the Dead 3 times at this point got to see this one.  You can have both shows here.
