Details Release Date: Dec 02, 2008; Lead Performance: Neil Young (Musician); Genre: Folk

Neil Young's seemingly bottomless archive yields Sugar Mountain — Live at Canterbury House 1968, a pair of acoustic concerts recorded soon after he left Buffalo Springfield. His meandering monologues contrast with the top-notch if uniformly pensive songs. ''Mr. Soul'' and ''Expecting to Fly'' reprise the then-recent past, while tracks like ''The Loner,'' the exquisite ''Birds,'' and the bittersweet title song provide a live demo tape of his immediate future.
