Neil Young Announces 'Bluenote Cafe' Live Album

(Radio.com) In the 1980s, Neil Young put out a series of highly stylized albums, baffling fans, critics and radio programmers alike. There was the 1985's old-school country album Old Ways, 1981's Devo-esque Re-act-or, 1982's synth-based Trans and 1983's rockabilly romp Everybody's Rockin'.

He closed the era with 1988's This Note's For You, back by his horn fueled big band, the Bluenotes. On the tour, they notoriously baffled audiences by sticking to This Note's For You for most of the shows, augmenting that with unreleased material, but mostly ignoring his back catalog.

It's a collection of performances from that 1988 tour that makes up Young's next release in his "Performance Series," titled Bluenote Cafe. The album contains live versions of the songs from This Note's For You. Read more here.
