Neil Young & Crazy Horse - The Palladium, New York City, November 20, 1976 (early show)
Oh yes. Big O has a 1976 Crazy Horse show for us to enjoy. The best year? It’s actually one I’ve only heard bits and pieces of — not the greatest recording from this period, but not too shabby either. And it’s got a pretty choice rarity — one of the very few Horse versions of “Helpless.” Beautiful. Sounds like it could’ve been on Zuma. They actually started playing an electrified arrangement in 2012, but hadn’t really done it very much before that. And hey, now that Neil is done with his various solo U.S. shows, he’s saddling up the Horse again for shows in Europe this summer. Which of my wealthy followers wants to pay for me to fly out to Reykjavik to see them?
