Neil Young is electric during solo acoustic concert at New York's Carnegie Hall

Iconic rocker gives performance for the ages on songs by CSNY, Buffalo Springfield, Phil Ochs and others.

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

The classic performance was the first of four shows at the legendary New York venue.


Bryan Pace/for New York Daily News

Performing artist Neil Young goes back to basics at a rare acoustic gig at Carnegie Hall on Jan. 6.

Neil Young had time on his mind when he took the Carnegie Hall stage for the first of four shows Monday.

Performing in his solo, acoustic guise, he bracketed the night with songs about relationships of great endurance. A song of divorce and perspective opened the night — 1996’s “From Hank to Hendrix.” An ode to longevity and hope closed it (“Long May You Run”).

In between, Young did his best to halt time. He moseyed through his 2-hour, 10-minute set, moving grandpa slow while considering which of six acoustic guitars, four keyboards or several harmonicas, he might use on a given song. He told stories about the instruments — where he bought them or who gave them to him as a gift. The stories might go somewhere, or they might not. It didn’t seem to matter, to either Young or the audience. Several times, he lightly chided fans for calling out requests. “I know what I’m going to play,” he announced.

His determination paid off with a performance of unusual engagement and nuance. Of the more than two dozen Neil Young shows I’ve seen over a 40 year period, Monday’s performance rated as the loveliest. It also ranked among the most fully committed.

It may have helped that these four Carnegie Hall shows — including ones Tuesday, Thursday and Friday — aren’t part of a long, exhausting tour. They’re isolated dates, to be followed by a short run in Canada. It may have helped, too, that Young had the memory of playing a key show at Carnegie Hall in December of 1970, at the height of his youthful prowess.

Young alluded to that night several times — to being “pretty jacked up” for it, to an audience whose requests irked him as well, and to his father, who came to the gig. After revealing that last fact, he performed “Old Man,” one of many numbers Young wrote in his 20s that make even more sense performed decades down the line.

Young also alluded to an infamous show the late Phil Ochs gave at the Hall, a night where the audience turned on him for wearing gold lame and for performing covers. After lavishly praising Ochs, Young offered his song “Changes,” another piece about the wages and rewards of time.

Other than a few such surprises, Young mainly stuck to well-known pieces, from “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” to “Heart of Gold.” But he tweaked nearly all of them with changes of key or subtle shifts in the arrangement that helped him inhabit them anew.

For “A Man Needs a Maid,” an electric organ refigured the orchestral parts, lending them a fresh chill and need. For “Southern Man” he dredged up a vocal of special agony.

Young performed the Buffalo Springfield song “Mr. Soul” at the pipe organ, which, subbed for the psychedelic guitar, lent a Gothic tone you’d expect from “The Phantom of The Opera.” He offered plush new chords for “On the Way Home,” which made a beautiful song ravishing.

Young drew a moving connection between two songs about heroin: Bert Jansch’s “Needle of Death” and his own classic on the subject, “The Needle and the Damage Done.” Throughout these, and all the other songs this night, Young’s strange, high voice retained its unlikely mix of the craggy and the agile. It’s a sound both aged and young, a voice that speaks of time so profoundly it can stand outside of it.

Dying to go Thursday or Friday... If anyone has an extra or knows of one, please drop me a line..

Saw neil solo acoustic at the Beacon before harvest moon came out and it was one of the worst shows I've ever been to... just a really weird, negative energy... lots of drunks looking for crazy horse and NY played harvest Moon in its entirety before he played anything else .. it wasn't out yet and no one knew the songs and got edgy.. it was really weird and uncomfortable... and all the worse because I was so excited about the show...

Perfect ending to an awful night was a fight int he lobby on the way out that dragged people into its vortex...

Wow! What a set list....Would love for Neil to headline a Mt. Jam Sunday evening. With of course the man who throws the party making an appearance. Probably too late to make this year happen.......But, who knows, It could be the year Warren gets to play with Neil...That would be a sweat Sunday treat, would it not Neil and Warren and Mountain Jam fans?

As an ACOUSTIC Neil fan - I would have loved that Harvest Moon show! I like Neil's songs - would love to see him in a small hall or theater playing only acoustic guitar and piano. I get extreme anxiety attacks whenever I see Neil walking towards an electric guitar!

Good review as well. I'm particularly intrigued to hear the version of "A Man Needs A Maid" as it's one of my favorite Neil Young tunes....Sure sounds like this is a show to catch given all the new twists and turns the reviewer mentions. Anyone see some clips out there on the world wide web of the show?

I've seen Neil with Crazy Horse twice. It years ago, in the 90's... but never Neil solo. It would be really cool if this led to a short stint here in the North East later in the spring....With a stop at Mt. Jam of course.

One other thing, he looks really good too. His sobriety certainly agrees with him. Good for Neil as it appears he's also rediscovering his talents along with his health. If anyone else has read his book, you'll understand what I mean, i think.

I'm with you on this--- Harvest Moon is high on my list of favorite albums of NY (aside from maybe Everybody knows this is nowhere...)- every song is killer.

I figured these shows would be much like the 2010 Le Noise tour setlist-wise. Nope, Neil surprises yet again. This looks superb, and Neil sounds great as always.

On the one hand, I am consumed w/ jealousy of those attending, and on the other hand, it makes me happy to simply know that Neil is still out there.

Going Thursday. Set list/setup on stage reminds me of the first half of the tour he did about 2007? when he played United Palace Theater. 2nd half of that was electric. One of the best shows I ever saw (just wish he played "The Sultan"

The recording for the second night is outstanding, perfect acoustics from such a distance from the stage.

I may be stating the obvious here, but to my ears, Neil sounds very sad singing these songs.
One of my brothers went the first night and he said Neil was 'focused' all night.

When I saw Greendale at Jones Beach the audience looked like the audience watching "Springtime for Hitler" in the "Producers"
