Just watched Fireside Sessions III - absolutely brilliant!!

I know he doesn't give a sh*t about his audience but the song selection of these sessions for die hard fans is just great. Piano version of Throw Your Hatred Down FFS! Thank you Neil ... long may you run

Just stumbled across this in isolation ... fantastic!

I saw Neil solo at Hammersmith Odeon on this tour in 1989 (one of the best concerts I have ever seen) and he blew me away, particularly Crime In The City which is the last song here ... enjoy

I rewatched the Pearl Jam 20 documentary recently and there was a quote(s) about how Neil Young taught them a lot about being a band. Play whatever size place suits you and play what you want. They listened, they are as legendary with their setlists as Neil is!

Of all the music I love and some more than his, Neil Young gets the most respect from me. He does and did what he wanted and it’s resulted in some brilliant and shit moments. But way more of the brilliance than shit.

I’ve a longer live love affair with him than the stones, first saw him in 93 age 13. Pearl Jam we’re in support. Booker T and the MGs were Neils backing band. Great day for a semi drunk 13 year old!

Totally @#$%& agree with every word of that. He's similar to Lou Reed to me. Better, at least live, but similar in the way of there can be whole decades I just ignore Neil, and he's still got enough good that outweighs the bad, which is so impressive and unlikely for most bands. I guess he's also like David Bowie to me in that way as well. Bowie's run of Space Oddity to Diamond Dogs to me is pretty perfect that he could literally do nothing after that and I'd still think he was one of the greatest. And yet on top of that he still DID do some incredible stuff even though there was also a lot I didn't like. I also liked that all 3 of those guys so obviously never became corporate shills. But yeah, Neil more than almost anyone else just did what he wanted and a lot of times to spectacular results. Few people make me smile the way Neil does when he gets it right. And usually its more than a smile and more like a "@#$%& yeah."

Everytime I hear that story about how Neil wrote Ohio in like 5 minutes as he saw it happening on the news I'm reminded how truly genius he is. Cause it just sounds SO Neil, but also it could have been anything. It could have been something like Down By The River, which is then a staple for the rest of his career. But its a song thats a staple and also a cultural touchstone to so many people. Neil is just brilliant, and I'm so happy he is so much more present than I feel he was a few years ago when there were rumors he was having health issues.

Just a matter of time now...6/19 to be precise:

Neil Young Shares Tracklist & Release Date For Shelved 1975 Album Homegrown Plus A Fourth Fireside Session

Homegrown

Seems like this Neil Young Homegrown release is really going to happen! On Neil Young Archives today is the tracklist and release date for the legendary shelved album,
which he’s been prepping for release this year. Young recorded the bulk of the material in 1974 with release initially planned for 1975. “It was a little too personal,”
Young told Cameron Crowe in a Rolling Stone interview at the time. “It scared me. I’ve never released any of those. And I probably never will. I think I’d be too embarrassed to put them out. They’re a little too real.”

Well, they’re coming out now — specifically, on 6/19. Here’s the official tracklist:

01 “Separate Ways”
02 “Try”
03 “Mexico”
04 “Love Is A Rose”
05 “Homegrown”
06 “Florida”
07 “Kansas”
08 “We Don’t Smoke It No More”
09 “White Line”
10 “Vacancy”
11 “Little Wing”
12 “Star Of Bethlehem”

Also on Neil Young Archives today is another Fireside Session. Throughout these weeks of widespread quarantine, the legendary folk-rocker has been sharing these videos, sort of EP-length solo acoustic sets filmed in various spots around his homestead in the Rockies, shot and edited on an iPad by his wife, Daryl Hannah. They’ve teamed up for three so far, and now there is a fourth.

This latest session is comparatively long, spanning 37 minutes and eight songs. It begins with “One Of These Days” by a campfire before Young takes his guitar inside. By the fireplace, between “Good To See You” and “Daddy Went Walkin’,” is his first known public performance of “Through My Sails.” The scene shifts to the piano for “After The Goldrush” and “Mother Earth,” then goes back outside for “Distant Camera.” It wraps up with another piano song, “Are You Ready For The Country,” matched with images of Young’s dogs playing in nature. Notably, three of these songs are from Young’s 2000 album Silver & Gold, which turned 20 years old a couple weeks back. Check it out at Neil Young Archives. Fireside Session IV

Homegrown is out 6/19 on Warner.

Some branding trivia on the NY front. Yesterday, the Facebook page called, "Neil Young Archives" merged with the "Neil Youn" FB page and was subsequently renamed, "Neil Young - Reprise Records."

No idea what the corporate implications for this are other than streamlining his online presence.

Cheers,

Via Rolling Stone: Try
The first glimpse of his long-lost 1975 album Homegrown sees Young offering a more heartsick version of Harvest-era country-rock warmth

Neil Young has released the charming “Try” from Homegrown, the long-lost 1975 album that he’s finally decided to release next month. The COVID-19 pandemic delayed the record’s arrival, but we’ve already waited nearly 50 years for it to come out. What’s another few months?

The soothing barroom ditty opens with Levon Helm’s subtle drumming, as Young beckons, “Darlin’, the door is open/To my heart, and I’ve been hopin’/That you would be the one to struggle with the key.” He blankets his request with a startlingly optimistic statement: “We got lots of time to get together if we try.”

Emmylou Harris lends lovely, fleeting vocals, while half of Young’s later band the Stray Gators — pedal steel legend Ben Keith and bassist Tim Drummond — chug along behind. It’s almost too fitting that Young sings, “And I try to wash my hands/And I try to make amends,” but its timeliness is appreciated just the same.

Homegrown was written in the wake of Young’s painful separation with actress Carrie Snodgress, his muse on the 1972 breakthrough Harvest who appeared in his 1974 cinematic oddity, Journey Through the Past. Later, on “Try,” he quotes her mother’s favorite catchphrase, “Shit, Mary, I can’t dance.”

“Try” is one of the seven unreleased tracks off Homegrown. Young tossed it into setlist rotation in 2007 and 2008, performing it a mere 20 times. When he can finally get back on the road, it’ll be interesting to see if and how he plays it, dusting it off from its time in the vault.

Neil Young will release “Homegrown” on June 19th. To hear “Try,” go to Young’s Archives site. Find a playlist of all of our recent Songs You Need to Know selections on Spotify.

______________________________________________________________

Neil back in November from the Archives:

“I apologize. This album Homegrown should have been there for you a couple of years after Harvest. It’s the sad side of a love affair. The damage done. The heartache.
I just couldn’t listen to it. I wanted to move on. So I kept it to myself, hidden away in the vault, on the shelf, in the back of my mind... but I should have shared it.
It’s actually beautiful. That’s why I made it in the first place. Sometimes life hurts. You know what I mean. This is the one that got away.”

The Toronto documentary theatre, Hot Docs, is closed at the moment so they are streaming some of their content, including a 6-part lecture about Neil Young, which will be available for streaming from July 30. Details in the link below. I expect this could be accessed from other countries, but not sure.
