Neil Young established himself as one of the most influential and idiosyncratic singer/songwriters of his generation. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website describes Young as "one of rock and roll's greatest songwriters and performers". He was inducted into the Hall of Fame twice, first as a solo artist in 1995, and second as a member of Buffalo Springfield in 1997. From the beginning of his solo career in the late '60s through to the 21st century, he never stopped writing, recording, and performing; his official catalog only represented a portion of his work, since he kept countless tapes of unreleased songs in his vaults. This release includes live performances of Neil Young at the Canadian National Exhibition Grandstand, Toronto, August 18, 1988; Santa Cruz, November 2, 1987; The World, Nyc, April 19, 1988; Jones Beach, August 27, 1988; Auburn Hills, September 4, 1988.
The arrival in London in the 1960s of the South African Blue Notes brought new sounds and a new attitude that had an incalculable influence. This historic five-CD set starts with the band live in South Africa in 1964, shortly before apartheid drove it out of the country. None of the members has survived except drummer Louis Moholo, and two of the sessions (from 1975 and 1986) commemorated the departures of trumpeter Mongezi Feza and bassist Johnny Dyani. The 1964 gig, a long way from hi-fi but as raucously atmospheric as sitting in a club, finds them in their early, rough-edged hard-bop and Monkish mode ~ Guardian
