  • Compiled from a series of gigs in September 1973, Roxy: Tonight's the Night Live captures Neil Young & the Santa Monica Flyers just after they recorded the epochal Tonight's the Night. It would be another two years before Tonight's the Night hit the stores, the label sitting on the record because it was too dark and murky. On-stage, these same songs straighten themselves out and, in the process, get a touch lighter. On Tonight's the Night, it often appeared as if Young and his crew learned the songs as they recorded them, but on Roxy, the Santa Monica Flyers have the changes under their belts and are really in the mood to have a good time. For anybody who has bought into the dark mythos surrounding Tonight's the Night, it's startling to hear Neil and his band joking around on-stage and treating this as an Irish wake, not an occasion for mourning. As such, it's almost a necessary addendum to Tonight's the Night, since it illustrates how Young's music continually evolved. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's the boozy sound of coping with charred regret, where even a playful throwaway like 'Roll Another Number for the Road' slips in a requiem for the Sixties dream..."

Paste (magazine) - "The band treats the show like a good club gig: playing their hearts out and encouraging the very vocal audience to join them in the fun....But this recording also feels like a sigh of relief, a joyous exhalation after spending long nights in the studio..."
