The wonderful work of Jeff Allen is of course no secret to readers of Neil Young FAQ, since he is the man responsible for the book’s amazing cover shot – a previously unseen photo of Neil Young taken during the 1969 TV taping of ABC’s short-lived Music Scene show, with Crosby Stills Nash & Young.
So, obviously we were delighted when Jeff contacted us earlier this week to let us know that he had scored prime seats for Neil’s four-night run of solo acoustic shows at the prestigious Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
Best of all, Jeff Allen attended the show with camera in tow.
As these photos – published here for the first time anywhere – show, it is also clear that Jeff hasn’t lost his touch all these years later. The following is just a short sample of what Jeff was able to capture, despite what he described as the sort of very heavy security one might expect at a Neil Young show these days:
Man, will you just look at all of those guitars!
Thanks again Jeff, and we’ll try our best to do better getting you a photo-pass next time!
