Warming up with "Live at Massey Hall 1971"

Oh dear.
It's only 0 degrees Fahrenheit this morning and I must venture out in an hour or so to go to work.
It's too C-C-COLD to do much more than listen to NEIL YOUNG.
We exchanged gifts with some family friends yesterday and I received some CDs, including Young's "LIVE AT MASSEY HALL 1971," part of the Canadian singer-songwriter's Archives Performance Series.
Young plays solo, accompanying himself with acoustic guitar and piano, on songs such as "Old Man," "Helpless," "Cowgirl in the Sand" and "The Needle and the Damage Done" -- in short, a classic collection of tunes.
The album also records a homecoming for Young and his fans -- the audience cheers, for example, whenever he sings about CANADA.
The album is keeping me warm this morning, at least in spirit.
