Neil Young Time Fades Away 1973

Time Fades Away is the first live album to be released by Neil Young. It was recorded in 1973 and he was backed by The Stray Gators.

While Neil Young has issued many live albums since including historic performances from his early days, Time Fades Away is not available for sale. This is because the entire tour has too many bad memories and he’s unhappy with the sound.

However the unavailability of Time Fades Away has given this live album legendary status and many fans are eager to hear the new songs performed on it.
