It features Buffalo Springfield classics such as "Flying on the Ground is Wrong" and "I Am A Child" as well as solo tracks "After the Goldrush" and "Tell Me Why." It also includes a rare rendition of "Cinnamon Girl," which Young played on piano, as well as the live debuts of "Old Man" and "See the Sky About to Rain."

The 1970 concert at the Cellar Door came about when Young was in the middle of a career transition. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young had split up earlier that year after less than 12 months playing together live. A month after the breakup, Young released the smash album After the Goldrush. He spent the second half of 1970 writing songs at his new ranch in northern California and booked two highly anticipated shows at Carnegie Hall for that December.

To rehearse for the upcoming shows, he played two nights of solo-acoustic sets at Washington D.C.'s Cellar Door. A tape recorder captured the whole show.

Live at the Cellar Door is due out December 10 and is available for pre-order. Listen to the album in full here, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
