Sugar Mountain – Live at Canterbury House 1968 is a live album by Neil Young. On November 8–10, 1968, Young performed three shows at Canterbury House in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This album is compiled from the performances on the 9th and 10th.

This album is Volume 00 in the Archives Performance Series. Since volumes 2 and 3 had already been released, this album, though performed earlier chronologically, is the third release from the Series. The Riverboat 1969, released in The Archives Vol. 1 1963–1972 in 2009, is the fourth Archive Performance Series released but was performed earlier chronologically than volumes 2 and 3.

The album was released only as a CD/DVD set, with the DVD containing a high-definition audio version of the album, playable on standard DVD players. The DVD also contains a trailer for Young's Archives Vol. 1 box set.

The recording of the song "Sugar Mountain" from this appearance was previously released as a single B-side and on Young's 1977 compilation album Decade.

A vinyl record version of the album, pressed on 200-gram Japanese vinyl, was released in April 2009.
