L’insatiable Neil Young revient avec un nouvel album live «Tuscaloosa» enregistré lors d'un concert au sein de l'université d'Alabama en 1973. C'est accompagné de ses musiciens surnommés The Stray Gators, que Neil Young nous offre des versions live de classiques issus de The Harvest ou encore After The Goldrush.
From the manufacturer
Only two tracks from Neil’s 1973 live album, Time Fades Away are featured on Tuscaloosa. Time Fades Away was recorded during the same 1973 tour with The Stray Gators that included the show in Alabama. Young’s latest vault release contains five songs from his landmark 1972 studio album Harvest. Fittingly, the song 'Alabama' made it on to Tuscaloosa. 'Alabama' would disappear from Neil Young’s repertoire until 2015 following the early-1973 tour outside of a lone performance in 1977 as per Sugar Mountain.

Having spent decades listening to the Time Fades Away album and wishing I could hear different versions of such works of wonder as Last Dance, the last couple of years have seen a rash of semi-official and official releases containing just such "new light on old masters" performances.
Last Dance isn't actually present here, but how amazing to hear its genesis in, of all things, New Mama - that frail, damaged piece from Tonight's the Night, presented here as a metal freak-out with the intro and riff of Last Dance welded to it.
Other songs are similarly played in various degrees of unrecognizability - Time Fades Away is given a rollicking reading with Young's new (to our ears) emphasis in the chorus throwing us off-kilter.
I have to take a star off for the opener, Here We Are In The Years, a song I'm not fond of, forming part of a brief acoustic intro - this, and Neil's almost apologetic "Here's another new song - we're gonna play some old stuff in a minute" giving the lie to the legend that he played a "like it or lump it" set of new material every night.
In fact, there is an emphasis here on Harvest - the album that supposedly deposited him in the middle of the road, making him yearn for the aforementioned ditch. He has nothing to be embarrassed about - the versions here are fiery, passionate and a million miles away from Seals and Croft.
I'd be happy to hear every second of music Neil played between 1972 and 1974 - keep 'em coming Neil.
This is the original touring band before Neil made changes and, in my opinion, the playing is more alive and Neil seems more enthusiastic than on Time Fades Away. I was frothing after one listen.
I also hope whoever gave it 2 stars was joking in their review. To be disappointed that a 1973 recording doesn't include Rockin in the Free World (1989), Powderfinger, Hey Hey, My My (1979) or Harvest Moon (1993) probably doesn't qualify you as 'one of Shakey's oldest fans'.
Quality is fine, all sound ok. A few bum notes on after the gold rush (so much that a few in the audience wait for the opening words before cheering) - that’s the problem when we hear the same songs so many times, but the live mix works.
A shame really. I feel a bit let down. Come on Shakey, you just have better archives.
Was mir an der LP »Tuscaloosa« nicht so behagt hat, war die schlechte Pressqualität. Eine Menge Kratzer, vor allem auf der 2. Scheibe und das bei einem Neuprodukt. Der Verkäufer sitzt noch dazu in GB und fordert erst die Rücksendung, welche noch einmal mit 16,00 € zu Buche schlägt. Ich finde es eine Unverschämtheit von "Global-Deals". Bisher warte ich immer noch auf meine Rückzahlung.
