Rare concert recordings by Neil Young and Joni Mitchell are among a recently discovered treasure trove of live performances from the late '60s.
The recordings were made at Canterbury House, which during the period served as a both a student worship center and a music venue at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The non-profit Michigan History Project has acquired the reel-to-reel tapes and is looking for a label to release them.
They include a "series" of concerts by Mitchell and tapes from a three-night stand by Young. Parts of two of those shows have been used in the 2008 archival Young release, Sugar Mountain - Live at Canterbury House 1968. It isn't known if the concert that wasn't used is one of these tapes.
In addition to the Mitchell and Young shows, there are recording of a number of important, but lower profile folk and blues artists, including Tim Buckley, Doc Watson, Odetta and Dave Van Ronk.
