Watch: 1976 Neil Young & Crazy Horse Concert Footage


Got hipped to this terrific footage from Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s four-night run at London’s Hammersmith Odeon in March 1976. Young performs “Tell Me Why,” “Stringman” and “Human Highway” solo before doing “Down By the River” and “Cortez the Killer” with Crazy Horse.

Thanks to JamBase and Dangerous Minds who pointed me to this clip. Watch it now before it’s gone.
