One disc 55 minutes in length approximately. The sound is uniformly good,especially considering that these tracks were recorded at different venues.
By now most Neil Young listeners are well acquainted with (if you're not-give it a listen) the album "Harvest Moon",released in 1992. For that recording Young utilized the wonderful musicians who came to be known as "The Stray Gators". This new album "Dreamin' Man Live '92",is composed of all the songs from that album. The key difference is that this new release is a solo acoustic collection of those tracks,recorded at various venues,also in 1992. On this album Young makes use of,besides guitar,his banjo and harmonica,and piano,to add color to his songs.
The overall theme of "Harvest Moon" was a look at times past. Young was taking stock of areas and eras (love,friendship,the environment) affecting his life. With this new album,these songs take on even more of a poignant feel. With no instrumentation except his own guitar (etc.) and voice,Young has imbued these songs with a starker,more immediate feel. The honesty and longing found in these songs is even more apparent in a solo setting. From tracks like "Harvest Moon",to "One Of These Days",to "Natural Beauty",among others,Young was concerned with the passage of time and events that related to his life.
"Harvest Moon" was a good example of Young's heart-felt writings. And now,finally,we can enjoy these songs in a beautiful,"bare-bones" setting,recorded in the same year as the originally released studio album. With Young's guitar,and other instruments filling in the holes or emphasizing a particular lyric,this album will draw you in from the beginning. Never mind that its not a "complete concert",the strength of these tracks speaks for themselves. This is a look back in time with yet another fine release from Neil Young's archive. More please.
