Donna and I have seen Neil live several times, with various configurations of musicians, the best was way uptown at Reverend Ike’s United Palace.
I especially loved the sound of a black guitar he was playing, Donna said the review next day mentioned he played it for the first time in many years, Awesome!
"In 1967, Rev. Ike’s ministry purchased and restored the “Palace Cathedral” aka “United Palace”, the fourth largest theatre in Manhattan located at the corner of Broadway and 175th Street. The facility was built in 1927 as one of the five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres” across the boroughs and New Jersey and designed by noted architect Thomas Lamb (Cort Theatre, the former Ziegfeld Theatre) with interiors overseen by decorative specialist Harold Rambusch (Waldorf Astoria, Radio City Music Hall). It was one of the region’s premier vaudeville and movie houses."
...........................................Some Crazy Horse, like some Bob Dylan, like some Band, can be called ’unlistenable’
However, Donna and I found this movie a real treat, the history and their attitude is revealed, and like some late Miles Davis, when you know more about it, you ’get’ it.
