Recorded during a six-show stint at tiny Cellar Door, a circa 100 seat Washington D.C. basement club November 30th through December 2nd, 1970, this 13 song collection recorded by the great Henry Lewy (thanked in the credits even though he passed away in 2006) presents Neil Young as intimately and as powerfully as you'll hear him on record.

Why it took so long for this to be released is something only Neil can explain. As a showcase of pure performing and songwriting talent it most reminds me of Randy Newman/Live (Reprise RS6459) recorded at New York's Bitter End September 17th-19th and issued in 1971. – Analog Planet


the stillness and intimacy of each live recording is singularly enthralling. There's a moment in Cinnamon Girl – lithely played on piano – when Young's vocal subsides into a giggle. He's on piano for Expecting to Fly, too, his voice soaring, tremulous, above chords resolute as granite. Closing with Flying on the Ground Is Wrong, he improvises a playful attack on the piano strings that offsets beautifully the tender solicitude of the song. You don't have to be a Young aficionado to appreciate that. – The Guardian
