This mono mix was cut at Elektra Records studios in Los Angeles, The acetate was given to me by Graham Nash. I photographed Neil Young for the first time at his first East Coast show with Crazy Horse, at the Bitter End in New York City, in February 1969. I went on to work with Neil extensively, as both his and CSNY’s tour photographer, and shooting him for eighteen of his album covers (including After The Gold Rush, Harvest, Time Fades Away, Tonight’s The Night, Decade and Rust Never Sleeps) plus numerous other official projects including publicity, advertising, songbooks, posters, et al. On various tours from 1973-1993, I also worked with Neil as his guitar technician; and served as his archivist for 20 years, researching and presenting him with every source for audio, artwork and text used in his massive box set Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972. This is from my personal collection. Sincerely, Joel Bernstein”

The acetate is in Near Mint condition, and comes with Joel Bernstein’s letter of authenticity and Recordmecca’s lifetime guarantee.
