With "Live Rust" of 1978-79 Neil Young has not only - published in conjunction with the only a few months earlier, also recorded live, but the audience for the most part "ausblendenden" milestone album "Rust Never Sleeps" - the restoration of its over 70s somewhat tarnished reputations managed as one of the most outstanding personalities of the international rock scene, but also constitutes a kind of its own "tradition", the end of each decade towards or to turn of the decade along with Crazy Horse, the (at least when it on arrives) probably loudest rock band in the world that has him repeatedly stood by since the late 60's and is to present a live showcase of very impressive quality, and "WELD" (1990-91) and "YEAR OF THE HORSE "(1996/97), the" sequels ". And even if one can safely argue long about which of these three stunning, incredible and outstanding live documents because now the really best, grandest, most overwhelming or what-so-ever for -a-superlative-you-still-see-is like, but I personally "WELD" simply for ever the best of what you have so far gotten ever hear from Neil Young, maybe even 1966 beside Dylan's live in-Manchester recording, became famous under the (false) name "The Royal Albert Hall 'Concert" and in 1998 finally officially released as "BOB DYLAN LIVE 1966", and John Cale Sabotage / LIVE 1979 for one of the most honest, most thrilling and most live Documents in rock history as a whole. While Neil Young on "Live Rust" nor his quieter "acoustic" and his loud "electric" page next to each other, in a sense, therefore, presented the full range of his musical spectrum, documented "WELD" nothing but uncompromisingly consistent, smashing, krachendlauten, unheard " dirty "and impetuous Guitar storm-Rock'n'Roll." Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black) "a smooth as opener skin around and can take your breath away, and the directly subsequent version of" Crime In The City "leaves an even no chance to take a breath ... It was the then-heard diagonally-electrically-loud cover version of Bob Dylan's" Blowin 'In The Wind "interrupts the exciting permanent Drive and -Beat for a short eternity, whereby the immense force of the subsequent "Welfare Mothers" is only the more violent ... And so it goes relentlessly by a total of 16 songs on 2 CDs, one of which I only "F *! # in 'Up", " would like to mention Cortez The Killer "(opener of the second CD)," Powderfinger "," Like A Hurricane "and" Tonight's The Night "as a further very best among so many best pieces. Just a pity that my absolute personal favorite "Sedan Delivery" (from "Rust Never Sleeps" and "Live Rust") in the collection is missing ... But the visit then yes again on "YEAR OF THE HORSE", for which reason alone already the acquisition also these double CD all worthwhile. - Anyway: "WELD" should definitely be times in any collection "contemporary music" missing!
