Neil Young ‘Live At The Roxy 1973’ To Be Released On Vinyl For Record Store Day 2018

Revised April 17th

Neil Young Tonight’s The Night: Live At The Roxy 1973 will be released as a limited edition double LP on April 21st for Record Store Day 2018. Recorded September 20th through 22nd, 1973 at Los Angeles’ Roxy Theatre, it includes the live debuts of nine songs that ended up on Tonight’s the Night, as well as On the Beach‘s “Walk On.” Warner Bros. Records​ will press 9000 copies as with a suggested retail price of $25.98. A ‘RSD First’ Release, it includes a collectible photo inside the gatefold sleeve and an etching of the Roxy logo on the flipside of the second LP. A standard vinyl edition as well as CD and digital versions will be released April 24th (and are currently available for pre-order on store.warnermusic, Amazon and elsewhere).

 

“We really knew the Tonight’s The Night songs after playing them for a month [in the studio],” Young wrote earlier this year on his online archive of these shows – the first ever, by any artist at the famous Sunset Strip venue. “So we just played them again, the album, top to bottom, without the added songs, two sets a night, for a few days. We had a great time.” Young was backed by a band he called the Santa Monica Flyers. Produced by Young and the late David Briggs, the album cover and package is below, followed by the tracklist.
