Neil Young's Official Bootleg Series features live shows from different stages of his career, including the early '70s where he was evolving into a superhuman talent. Royce Hall 1971 focuses on a solo gig at UCLA where Young played songs from his albums After the Gold Rush and Harvest, and even some unreleased tracks.
The album captures the raw and intimate renditions of well-known songs like "Cowgirl in the Sand," "Ohio," and "Don't Let It Bring You Down." This release is similar to Dorothy Chandler Pavilion 1971, so only die-hard fans may need both. However, each volume in the series is a valuable record of Young's on-stage performances, showcasing his immense talent.
