Out On The Mainline

Pretty? No. Raw? You bet. Intense? Definitely. And that's how I like Neil Young best of all. And while we're talking raw and intense: Neil's 1973 Tonight's The Night tour with the Santa Monica Flyers was just that. Bet you never heard this nearly 34 (!) minutes long live version, recorded in Chicago's Auditorium Theater. Uneasy listening guaranteed, as the source is a very lofi-sounding audience tape. But when you're on a tequila-fuelled trip like this one, who cares? Just sing that song in a shaky voice...
