Live At The Cellar Door is the latest in his Archives Performance Series, an album that collects recordings made during Young's intimate six-show solo stand at the Cellar Door in Washington DC between November 30 and December 2 1970.

The album can be pre-ordered on CD, vinyl or as a digital album.

Live At The Cellar Door, which features Young performing on acoustic guitar and piano, includes live versions of songs that appeared on After The Gold Rush, and other tracks that make up a unique cross-section of material that Neil would draw from for these shows.

The album includes a rare solo version of Cinnamon Girl performed on piano rather than guitar – the full band version appears on Young's 1969 second solo album Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.

In addition, Live At The Cellar Door features early, raw performances of songs that would not appear on subsequent Young albums, including the Bad Fog Of Loneliness, which appears on Live At Massey Hall ’71 – released in 2007 – but was previously unreleased until the studio band version was included on Archives Vol 1 1963-1972, and Old Man released two years later on 1972's Harvest album.
