A rare and intimate series of live solo Neil Young shows from 1970 have been made into a brand new album, Live at the Cellar Door, which can be streamed in its entirety more than a week ahead of the official Dec. 10 release date.

The album was recorded over six shows held at Washington, D.C. venue the Cellar Door towards the end of 1970, less than a year after the dissolution of the band Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The concerts were among Young’s first following the instant success of his third solo album, After the Gold Rush, which had been released earlier that same year.

According to Rolling Stone, the solo acoustic Cellar Door concerts were booked in preparation for two high-profile gigs later in the month at New York’s prestigious Carnegie Hall.

The album is thick with tracks from After the Gold Rush, opening with four cuts from that album: “Tell Me Why,” “Only Love Can Break Your Heart,” “After the Gold Rush” and “Tell Me Why.” Also included on the set is Young rarity “Bad Fog of Loneliness” (which didn’t receive an official release until 2007 album Live at Massey Hall 1971) as well as songs like “Flying on the Ground Is Wrong” and  “I Am a Child” from another one of his former bands, Buffalo Springfield.

The album is currently available for pre-order, and will be released on 180 gram vinyl for the aficionados of the classic wax format.
