Musical Interlude: Heart of Gold (1971)

Before recording his 1972 album, "Harvest", Neil Young tested out "Heart of Gold" on an acoustic tour in 1971. The studio version featured backing vocals by James Taylor & Linda Ronstadt, but here, in this concert clip, it's all Neil, with just a guitar and harmonica. The reason he's seated is because of a back injury that left him unable to play his electric guitar for a while........

Awesome, isn't it?
