From a bootleg called “Last Of A Dying Breed”.
This set omits all of the non-Austin City Limits songs that were on the bootleg. The source was probably a soundboard recording for the television show – what was eventually broadcast on TV did not include all of the songs on this set.

  1. Necessary

    A really under appreciated period in Neil’s career. Great band and much better than the studio releases of the same period.

  2. I agree..Neil came across better live than on his studio effort ‘Old Ways’. ‘Old Ways’ was originally recorded in 1982. The result was an effort closer to ‘Harvest’. His label `Geffen` rejected the original version. Neil rerecorded the album with a stronger country lean. I tend to believe the original version of ‘Old Ways’ would have been a superior version.
