 Mr. Iliff, you said it! A fine and rough document with Danny Whitten still flying around the planet. Some sound textures anticipate the blackness of Neil´s dark years in the mid-70´s, esp. "Tonight´s The Night". By the way, Young´s electric guitar playing had a huge influence on the Austrian labtop-man and guitarist Christian Fennesz.

 Nice you did your homework on this one. There's a boot available called Winterlong from '70 that has the complete acoustic and electric shows. Curious what 'Disc01' was supposed to Springfield demos maybe?

 Terrorist, seems like someone already bothered to reference this earlier, but you pretty much solidified your rank as completely ignorable, your comment a self-fulfilling prophecy. Long history of reactionary idiocy on here, so do us all a favor and take it somewhere else. Guess your "name" says it all. Can picture your Pabst trucker hat right now, or perhaps you've moved to a High-Life tattoo?

 Had the hat and tattoo thing all wrong. You are a totally different kind of loathesome, the kind we will not mention here. Bright and shiny and boring.

 Re: Grandbanks - It is really good to meet people on this page who are interested in music and want to offer their points of view. It can be polemic, it can be rational, whatever. "A long history of reactionary idiocy" - that´s a good one. I do find this a bit too often here. Kindergarden:) Sometimes it seems to me more appropriate to ignore them than to honour their "ego-tripping" with any kind of response.And sometimes it is good to call an idiot an idiot!!

 An good review for Stylus. We need more Iliff and less Southall and Dom whatever-his-name-is. Anyways, Neil influenced a hell of a lot more people than Fennesz. I have a solo acoustic Neil bootleg from maybe 1970. It's a lot better than this. Very touching. A++++++++++. This is still Neil, though, and it's interesting to hear Whitten.
