"Dreamin' Man Live 92"

Just finished listening to it.

When I 1st read about this I thought "how can it be his latest archive release if it was from 92?" But Neil is Neil and it was almost 20 years ago.

Its the acoustic part of a concert I assume, and Neil actually plays the entire 10 song album "Harvest Moon" with only his acoustic guitar, banjo on one cut, harp and piano....except the songs are in a different order.

All I can say is, whenever Neil goes this route the results are always spectacular. His voice just fits simple acoustic settings so well. And he has such a beautiful and very compelling way with solo acoustic guitar. He plays so cleanly and so effectively.

Its kinda short, but If you like the earlier Massey Hall and Sugar Mountain releases you'll probably like this one as well.

If you plan on buying the Archives boxes, then don't buy the individual discs. I bought all of the discs he released the last few years, and all of them were on the boxed set, which I also bought.

I saw one of these shows in NYC. It was good I recall. Damn I'm getting old.

+1,000,000

You got it brother...I did the same. Never again. You just KNOW in 2013, that will be in the Archives box. I mean, bands putting out greatest hits with a song or two as bait is one thing, but this whole thing is another altogether. Enough is enough.

Rust1, I'm just as confused as I am upset. That was such a non-Neil move.

Love him or hate him, the guy has never been that sort of miser. If anything, he's the most fan-friendly artist I know.

I wonder how much he had to do with that, and how much of it was the label. Either way, it was very lame.

Well...the obvious problem with that is I just dont feel like waiting. Ever since the early 70's Neil has been #2 for me right after the ABB.

When something of Neils comes out, I just cant say..."Oh, great! 3 or 4 years from now I'll pick it up in the box set!"

Aint gonna happen.

I totally agree - I have been a huge die-hard Neil fan forever, and he DOES rank right up there w/ABB in the fave category - albeit different but both brilliant in their own rights. I will not wait on this either - expecially when I saw this tour....pure magic

See, this is what I would LOVE for Gregg Allman to do. (No harp, of course -- unless, he invited a harp player along, and that'd be OK for some songs.) Anyone who likes the demos/solos w/ voice piano or guitar on "One More Try" would, I'd think, agree it would be an incredible recording/tour. When I heard him last week at the Ram's Head in Annapolis, his voice sounded terrific and the first half of "Floating Bridge" was just Gregg/acoustic guitar -- the highlight of the show for me.

I agree completely. I have "One More Try" and the solo piano stuff is amazing. Just beautiful, and very moving.

I love that Gregg did the piano only "Oncoming Traffic" on the 3-19-09 Beacon instant live.
