Archive live album box set with CD, DVD and vinyl LP

Neil Young's 1971 solo show at The Shakespeare Theater (in Stratford, Connecticut) is released as Young Shakespeare, a CD, vinyl LP and DVD box set.

The show was filmed and recorded on 22 January 1971, just two months after the release of After The Gold Rush and the concert was shown on German TV later that year. The performance has an amazing setlist but features only a couple of songs from After The Goldrush although Neil previews four from Harvest which, amazingly, was still over a year away from being released.

 

The concert was shot on 16mm film and is apparently "the earliest live footage of Neil performing that is known to exist". Young himself considers the performance "superior to our beloved 'Massey Hall'" and says "Young Shakespeare is a very special event. To my fans, I say this is the best ever.”

The analog tapes have been lovingly restored – resulting in what Neil Young calls “one of the most pure sounding acoustic performances we have in the Archive”.

Just over 50 years from the original show, the concert is being issued as a deluxe box set that brings all three formats together.

Young Shakespeare will be released on 26 March 2021, via Warner Records.
