    Neil Young question

    I was driving around yesterday, listening to a local bare bones total free form college station, and they played an instrumental cut that sure sounded like Neil. It was beautiful. It was an electric guitar track laid over an acoustic intro. Sort of slow and full of remorse, if that makes sense. Bluesy. Had to be him. I haven't followed his latest stuff over the past few years. Does this sound like something he's done very recently?

    Maybe it was a cut off Le Noise?

    Did you call the station? The DJ would know what song it was and who performed it...

    No, it certainly wasn't booji boy, and, yeah, I called, and the slacker didn't even answer. py website, too, with no live playlist. They play 90% stuff I have never heard, though, mostly new. About half good.

    did it sound just studio cut or production - how'd start - how'd it end?

    Always thought of him more a strummer than a player.

    Dumped slacker after 4yrs - i can Opine - got free sirius till sep1. meh... definitely not worth the premium

    You know you can have your phone id this stuff for you, right? Either Shazam, or right there in Google.
    Also, these college radio stations (and others) sometimes have their playlists online.
    No longer stuck.

    Deadman is great if you dig existential Westerns and Jim Jarmusch.

    Also scope out Year Of The Horse, the Neil Young rockumentary that Jarmusch directed around the same time.

    Yeah, I just played the whole album for the first time in a long time and remembered why that was - love the music, too much talking.

    Great movie IMO, pretty amazing cast. There are a lot of clips on youtube - I thought there used to be one of the alley blow job but I couldn't find it:


    Edit: This is probably the track Benny was looking for:


    Edit 2: Aaand here's the alley bj (2:05):

    I've always wanted to see Human Highway. I've read a lot about its making (Shakey), but have never found it anywhere. What a cast and crew.

    I’ve seen something like that - maybe a home movie. Don’t recall it being released with a title, but if you search YouTube “Neil Young barn” you should find it.

    I don't recall seeing Neil with Crazy Horse in a barn. Like Billk said... you'll find videos of Neil playing in his barn (Neil is with the Stray Gators) when he was doing Harvest.

    Journey in to the Past has some of the barn footage. I've seen it with other documentary type films on YouTube but the get pulled down pretty quickly.

    You can find tons of stuff on his site Neil Young Archives.

    Probably a take from Human Highway. Trans resulted from this intersection, too.

    Meant to post this up way back when. Heard the tune just a bit ago and the light bulb flickered. Footy of Neil creating the soundtrack for Deadman. Pretty cool that he puts himself in front of the movie and developes it as it /he goes along. Acoustic deadman starts at about 4:20 and then he lays down the electric at about 17:30 for anyone that wants to just cut to it.
