Neil appeared at New York's famed Winter Garden Theater in October 1972.

The 20 performances at this 1,479 seat theater was sold out and marked the first solo performer to play Broadway since Al Jolson.

It was also Neil's final performance before going on his sabbatical, which lasted almost four years.
