Neil YoungI have been streaming Neil Young's Sugar Mountain - Live At Canterbury House 1968 at NPR for the past week or so, and am looking forward to watching the accompanying DVD of the performance that catches Young in an early solo performance. This disc also has me eagerly awaiting the next installment in the Neil Young Archives Performance Series.

Aside from the Neil Young live disc, I only plan to pick up the import version of Mark Olsen & Gary Louris's Ready for the Flood, the reunion of the Jayhawks members, while rummaging through the bargain bins and finishing my holiday shopping.

What new releases can you recommend? What music are you giving as holiday presents?
