well, i finally got the full version of it after only having a "truncated" version

it's okay, I suppose, though for these "archival" historical releases, i'd much prefer him and his "Old Ways" band's live performances, it's called "International Harvesters", cos i really much prefer country NY than folk NY

I guess you`re talking about this album, Howard, which was new to me until I read your post :-



From the little bit of investigating that I did, it sounds quite good, but maybe a little lightweight. I wonder how it compares to Old Ways, which tbh I usually think of as a two track album ; The Wayward Wind and Are There Any More Real Cowboys.

yeah, that's the one

Old Ways sure is better live than in the studio

i also got "Dreamin' Man Live '92" and "Live at Fillmore East" based on the interest in his "Archived Performances" releases sparked by this thread

also, i was in the midst of typing this when the timer cut off my line yesternight so, sorry for the late reply

Yes, I`m getting that impression.
Especially after Dylan`s Nashville Skyline showed how great a "New Country" album could be, Neil`s effort was truely disappointing, with it`s focus on replicating all the clichés that make country music a joke to many people. It sounds as if, with the live International Harvesters, Neil rediscovered one of the best elements of country music; lively acoustic jamming.

Well, let us know what you make of those albums.
No need to apologise, btw - you are one of the most consistently responsive posters on MB. In fact last night we had a power blackout here. Happens quite a lot; a big storm blows down trees and branches which then pull down the power lines.

will do

edit - ok have heard both - no surprises there, neither is that much different from the studio versions, i don't think they're any superior or any inferior, unlike International Harvesters - A Treasure, which demonstrated what the "Old Ways" band could really do

i have a curfew as i'm somewhat addicted to the Net

if there's no timer, i'd probably not get any sleep
