New Music Releases - 12/2/08
Last week was very light....
Records Released on 12/2/08:
Records I’ve Heard:
Neil Young: Sugar Mountain – Live at Canterbury House 1968 (Reprise) – Recorded in Ann Arbor, MI on November 9th and 10th in 1968 after he left Buffalo Springfield, but right before his self-titled debut came out. It’s solo acoustic Neil (which I adore). I’ve only streamed it online a couple of times (because it’s on my Christmas list) but it’s essential listening for Neil fans. Some of the arrangements are a bit different - which is often an improvement. There’s also some great between song anecdotes/introductions. At times he sounds a bit like he might have sucked down a couple of valiums before the show, but it’s interesting to hear how his voice has changed over the years. Highly recommended.
Other Noteworthy Releases:
Akon – at Club Nokia on 12/30/08
Britney Spears – at the Staples Center on 4/16/09 & 4/17/09
