Neil Young's in-concert guitar prowess with Crazy Horse is well documented. LIVE AT THE FILLMORE EAST, recorded at a 1970 performance, nevertheless, fills a major hole in the Young legacy, containing the only live recordings of Young's legendary guitar interplay with original Crazy Horse member Danny Whitten, who died the following year. Performing songs from their most recent release, EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS IS NOWHERE, the band simultaneously digs in with a visceral, gritty gestalt, and expands outward with Young and Whitten's exploratory six-string journeys.
Of added interest to hardcore Young fans are performances of three songs that wouldn't be recorded until years later--the countrified "Come on Baby Let's Go Downtown," the elegiac "Winterlong," and the lovelorn shuffle "Wonderin'." Augmenting the basic quartet of Young, Whitten, and the stalwart rhythm section of Ralph Molina and Billy Talbot is Young's once-and-future producer Jack Nitzsche on electric piano. Together the five create a thick, sprawling sonic beast that unfolds itself with undeniable gravitas over the course of this priceless set.

Rolling Stone (p.110) - Ranked #2 in Rolling Stone's "The Top 10 Reissues Of 2006" -- "'Cowgirl in the Sand' is stuttering fuzz-guitar ecstasy."
Spin (p.83) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[O]n the 14-minute 'Cowgirl in the Sand,' everyone is immortal."

Q (p.146) - "Live At The Fillmore East finds Young and Crazy Horse in fine form. As ever, Young's plaintive voice is set against the band's rolling thunder..."

Reviews
ReviewSource Rolling Stone
Review For Neil Young, 1970 proved to be a particularly busy year. In addition to touring the world as a solo acoustic act and with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, as well as recording two pivotal albums (After the Gold Rush and Deja Vu), he managed to squeeze in a few gigs with Crazy Horse. Six of the best takes from two torrid shows at the Fillmore East on March 6th and 7th are available on this CD, which is the first-ever archival release from Young's bulging vault. Epic jams on "Down by the River" (twelve minutes long) and "Cowgirl in the Sand" (sixteen minutes) are highlights of the disc, which also contains "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere," "Winterlong" and "Wonderin.' “The guitar interplay between Young and original Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten is breathtakingly sharp; Young has played with countless other guitarists since Whitten died in 1972, but nobody has come close to matching his ragged-glory style.
