Is There A Future For The Live Album?
Just a very small thing, this. Anybody who occasionally pops over to the 1001 Albums Project in a corner of this website will know I'm a big music anorak, and occasionally dip my toes into the murky waters of music punditry, never in a particularly formal manner (I did use to be an official adviser to BBC Radio 3 on all matters concerning progressive and classic rock, mind). Anyway, I've had my first ever name-check in an article about music history, in this really great read for The National about the history and future of the live album by Si Hawkins. I chip in as a sort of on-call Neil Young expert, and there's a little mention of the nonsense Neil Young show I'm working on for Edinburgh this year. Thanks to Si for the mention, and congrats on a lovely article!
