info from Sugar Mountain (thanks Tom)
notes: New Mama missing from this copy
there are edits, the show is a tad hot in spots and there is some hiss.
listen to the samples 🙂
But…….this is the historic show where Neil just walks off the stage after just starting Southern Man.
You can hear Graham Nash say “what about all of these people?”
Here’s what Pete Long wrote in Ghosts On The Road (pg 55) :
Towards the end of the tour Young abandoned the early acoustic set as a response to the rowdiness of the audiences.
In particular, the concert at The Oakland Coliseum became infamous.
During Southern Man a fan, making his way towards the stage, was set upon by a securityguard.
Seeing this happen Young stopped playing and amid the confusion left the stage.
Unfortunately many members of the audience did not appreciate exactly what was going on and their response was predictably hostile.
