Neil Young fans will be happy to know there's a new batch of old material coming up on the market soon. On November 25, the songwriter will release Mountain Live At Canterbury House 1968, a set recorded when he was just 23 years old in November of 1968. The music is the launch of Young's solo career, recorded six months after he left the Buffalo Springfield and performed on the campus of University of Michigan in Ann Arbor as a trial balloon to see how fans would react to his material. He performed songs from his time in Buffalo Springfield as well as tunes that became classics on future Neil Young records. He also gave a "spoken word" performance about his day job in a Toronto book store that made it on to Mountain Live as well. -- Jennifer Maerz
