NOTES from the original uploader:
A fairly good audience recording that Iíd grade a B or B+. Of course the performance is great being from what many fans consider his best yearsÖwith the Caledonia Soul Orchestra. Included is a performance of one of his rarest songs, I Paid The Price.

taper’s notes:
(from barndoggs master tape, uncirculated for 30+ years.)
there are a few problems with this tape. I was sitting in a front aisle seat,and you can hear alot of talking in the 1st song. the people next to me were real pissed because people were standing in the aisle and wouldn’t sit down. security soon remedied that. From don’t be denied on there are some speed problems in the recording, I think due to a faulty tape, since the batteries were new.

remasterer’s notes:
most of this recording sounds pretty consistent, but it goes south (further south than in “southern man”) starting with don’t be denied. the last two songs don’t sound too bad, but tracks 14 and 15 have some variation, and the worst of it is in southern man.

the folks in Lynyrd Skynyrd might be glad about that. they didn’t like that one much. the last two songs may be a little slow, but this could use a speed fix. I was thinking about giving it a try, then decided why mess it up for everybody else even more than it already is? this is basically the “raw files” posting of this show. It’s not as bad as I feared it might be, and most of it sounds okay.
none of it sounds wonderful. this is a 1973 Neil Young audience recording at the Boston Garden, recorded on a primitive portable Sonic Panic? recorder and microphone. so don’t expect it to sound like it was recorded on a Nakamichi recorder. But it is pretty good for what it is, and it is from a master cassette > CD source.

so there is no tape copy lineage of any kind here, no noise reduction,
EQ or shoddy (or otherwise) attempt to fix the speed problem. this appears to be the whole concert. thanks very much to “barndoggs” for recording this Neil show and sharing it with me to share with all of you.
This one is even older than Neil’s jeans worn on current tours. so some of it is mellow, some of it rocks, and all of it’s good old Neil. almost good enough to put this in with “classic” rock. there is another less complete source of this show circulating,but this is likely the first circulation of this recording.

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.
(thanks Pete)
