Neil Young Announces ‘Songs for Judy,’ a New Live LP Recorded in 1976, Stream ‘Campaigner’

On Nov. 30, Neil Young will dip into his vaults for Songs for Judy, a live album bringing together acoustic recordings made during his 1976 “Crazy Horse” tour.

On his archives site, the legendary songwriter commented about the album and its material:

Joel Bernstein “boy photographer” music lover, collector and archivist, and Cameron Crowe, writer and music lover were responsible for the record album Songs For Judy. JB was on my solo tour in 1976, tuning my acoustic guitars. He also was recording cassettes of the shows from our P.A. board mixes. Basically, what the people heard. Joel and Cameron chose these songs and did a great job. The album is quite unique and I think the period was very well captured in the sound and performances. It was a moment in time, and it’s easy to tell why it’s called Songs For Judy.
