Neil Young has announced a new archival release of a live performance from 1973 which is due to appear in March.
Writing in inaugural issue of the Neil Young Times – Contrarian, Young explained that it will be titled Roxy – Tonight’s The Night Live, taken from a ’73 Los Angeles performance with the Santa Monica Flyers right after recording Tonight’s The Night.
“We really knew the Tonight’s The Night songs after playing them for a month [in the studio],” Young saids in the online newspaper. “So we just played them again, the album, top to bottom, without the added songs, two sets a night, for a few days. We had a great time.”
It will be available through the Neil Young archives, which is currently free to use. There will be a paywall in the future, but it Young intends on keeping it very much for the fans.
“We plan on a couple of levels of subscription with many exclusive features for the top level,” Young wrote. “We don’t want to lose our listeners so we are making it very low priced and attractive, with all kinds of perks, from premier listens to first shot at buying tickets to shows before they are commercially announced.”
