Neil Young – Freedom (Live and Acoustic in 1989)

Here’s a special post for a Friday night. This is a 30-ish minute long video of Neil Young playing acoustic in two different settings. You can tell by the changes in outfits. At first he’s wearing the same hat he has on the cover of Freedom. It was released on video cassette around the same time as the Freedom record, and shared the same name. The tragic reality, though, is that it’s never been released on DVD. Luckily, some generous soul has uploaded it to the YouTubes for the rest of us.

Here’s the setlist. The “Crime In The City” is particularly great. Enjoy!

  1. Crime In The City
  2. This Note’s For You
  3. No More
  4. Too Far Gone (With Ben Keith and Frank Sampedro)
  5. After The Goldrush
  6. Ohio
  7. Rockin’ In The Free World
