From the original uploader:

Here’s one of the better early ’76 recordings which I haven’t seen torrented recently. Although I received it in the 90’s labeled as a DAT copy from the master, I’m not sure about that. There may be an analog
generation in there somewhere. You’ll notice the sound quality change between Cortez and Cinnamon Girl like two seperate tapes were used. I also had to clean up some diginoise during about 5 seconds of The Losing End using an unspecified generation CDR of the same recording. The patch sounds no worse than any of the other little sound flucuations in the recording. In spite of all of that, this is the best copy of this show that I’ve heard and I think you will like it. Like most of the ’76 shows, there’s great guitar work by Neil, especially near the end of Southern Man.

Nineteen Seventy Six was a busy year in the career of Neil Young.  He released Long May You Run with Stephen Stills and and took a two month tour in support of the album.  He also performed around fifty dates as a solo artist or with Crazy Horse.  He spent some time working on at least three albums and found time to perform during the Band’s final concert which was recorded on the Last Waltz.

You could call that a pretty typical year in the life of Neil Young.

This is a lovely little show towards the end of the year.  The first set is solo with just Neil and his guitar or piano, then the second set gets electrified and Neil brings out the whole band and they get scorching. The sound quality is good. It is a nice soundboard recording which is crisp, but a little cold sounding.  I don’t know how to explain that meaning in technical terms.  I don’t know if it is the age of the original tapes, or the fact that they haven’t been properly mastered, or cleaned up or whatever, but sometimes older bootleg recordings sound cold, and empty.  Like the sound has been stripped of some sort of internal warmth.

Don’t let that fool you, the quality is good and the performance is rocking.  Enjoy!
