Subject: Lobos, Heartbreakers & Neil

Mike Campbell played pieces of Neil songs within his solos at the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Shoreline Amphitheatre show in Mountain View last weekend. Los Lobos was the opening act for both nights.

On the second night, Los Lobos was booked at Slim's nightclub in S.F. after their Petty opener gig. They came on at Slim's at about 11:30, playing rented equipment. After several songs they finally got the amps right, and broke into a jamming version of Farmer John.

Awhile later I looked up to see another musician joining them on stage with guitar in hand -- it was Mike Campbell, joining Dave, Cesar and the band. They proceeded to play a full on rocking version of Down By The River, with Campbell's solo bookended by Dave and Cesar's. After the tune, Mike made as if he was done by shaking hands, but Dave wouldn't let him leave for two more songs!

Benmont Tench joined Los Lobos for the first song of the encore as well. A fine time was had by all.

Peace and rockin'

Subject: REMer's Neil experiences

In an article in the current issue of The Rocket, a Northwest music rag, REM sideman (and former Posies member) Ken Stringfellow recounts his first "audition" with REM. It happened to be the rehearsals for the last year's Bridge Benefit. He'd never played with the band before...

"We only had two days in San Francisco. I was practicing keyboard parts on Neil Young's pump organ. In fact, a significant portion of the second rehearsal was spent rehearsing Ambulance Blues and On the Beach with Neil himself."
In the same article, Peter Buck recounts with pride...
"I remember Neil walking up to me and saying into my ear, 'You guys are in a groove.'"
The story goes on to say that Ambulance Blues will be on the REM fan club's Christmas single.

Stumbled across an old article about Rufus Thibodeaux (master fiddler) where he talks a bit about his work with Neil on his albums and tours. One of the interesting quotes:

One of Thibodeaux's favorite memories comes from his first session with Young for Comes a Time. The band was just learning the songs, Thibodeaux said, when Young announced they had completed the album. Young then told the group, "People don't buy {lack of} mistakes, they buy the feel. And the feel is there."

According to Henry Diltz's web site, Henry's Gallery (slightly edited):

We finally finished our film Under The Covers. Thanks to The Cameraguys Bill Day and Terry Schwartz for their film talents. We are very happy with the results.

The film covers Gary Burden and Henry Diltz's story of album cover design from the mid '60s through the '70s featuring CSN, Eagles, Doors, Jackson Browne, David Cassidy, Jimmy Webb, America, Joni Mitchell, Steppenwolf, Mama Cass, CSNY and more.

The quality is superb on DVD which includes a new digitally mixed audio track. It includes 16 chapters running 90 minutes.

The program will initially be released this fall only with new JVC DVD machines. The retail availability of the DVD will not happen until March of 2000. There will also be a The Learning Channel broadcast at the beginning of next year. We will also offer it on our site in the future.

After hearing about the first Archives installment again being pulled from the release schedule, three very old Rusties get the chance to have a small talk with GOD. A kind of meet and greet.

The first asks: "I'm an old man, can you tell me when Neil's Archives will be released?"

GOD answers: "Keep your faith -- it will be within the next year."

The second Rustie asks: "Lord, I'm from Austria, will we in Europe ever get a chance to see Neil again?"

GOD replies: "Don't worry -- he'll come within the next two years."

The last one asks: "When will the Missing 6 be released?"

After an interval, GOD answers: "Sorry man -- I don't know. But one thing is for sure, I'll be dead by then!"

Subject: CSNY vs Britney Spears

As Jim Rome would say, these are excerpts from the multi-colored fishwrap (USA Today):

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

The legendary foursome unleashes its formidable harmonies on a reunion album, tentively titled Looking Forward, due Oct. 26...

..."I can definitely see older fans coming back for that one," Wonsiewicz says. "If the songs are solid, it can be a platinum record. Older artists have trouble getting airplay, so that could be a problem. The adult alternative format is great for that age group, but it's not known for selling records like urban, pop, or alternative-rock stations."...

...Young's cachet with Generation X could win wider exposure, as could the unlikely fortune of a hit single. "It's hard to imagine such veterans having a top 10 single next to Britney Spears," Howard says. "They may not need it. This is one of the most anticipated albums for the boomers."

Variety has another article about the Saturday Night Live music compilations previously mentioned here. They don't see fit to mention Neil at all. One item not mentioned previously is that the CDs "will be marketed through direct response and TV ads".

MTV also has an article that lists the tracks on the CDs. Neil's song is No More. It's the 2nd song on second CD of the set, between Nirvana's Rape Me and REM's Loosing My Religion.

A close look at the tracklist reveals that, of all the artists performing on the two CDs, a dozen of them have played the Bridge School benefit concerts! Here's the full list (Bridge performers marked with Bridge concert number in [ ] brackets):

Subject: VH1 on CSNY

The VH1 news page has a short CSNY blurb that combines a few previous news items. Here's how they word it all:

CSN & Y Random Notes
The world has started its trembling at the notion that Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young are getting back together. And they've brought help. Looking Forward, due for release on October 26, will feature a Stephen Stills-Bob Dylan collaboration called Seen Enough. David Crosby, understandably, sounded even more thrilled than he was on Four Way Street. Said Cros: "It was fantastic. Neil Young is so much fun to play music with I can't even begin to tell you. He's a wonderful cat and CSN is a great band. And put them together... CSNY is like seven pounds of stuff in a three-pound bag. It's a wonderfully inventive event." And all this without the aid of artificial stimulants!
Looks like Still's collaboration with Dylan's finally giving HIM some press with regard to this album. Previously Nash was quoted a lot when Neil first joined them, and Neil & Crosby have both been busy enough touring to get press of their own (each article usually including an "and CSNY has re-formed" sidebar). Up to now, Stills was pretty much left out of the picture. Thanx for getting him some press, too, Bob! #160; :-)

Subject: Neil-therapy for Neo-Nazi

An item of interest. This semester, I am taking a class in Terrorism at my college (this is not a how-to class, it's from a Political Science perspective). Anyway, I was reading the assigned text for my class, The Future of Terrorism by Harvey W. Kushner. It was talking about the process of being indoctrinated into a hate group and the obstacles to getting out.

The text talked of the case of Ingo Hasselbach, a contemporary German Neo-Nazi leader, who chose to get out of his hate group after they had killed several people in a fire that erupted after one of their regular bombings. It talked about his struggle through depression after escaping the group and eventually finding his way to America.

What did he cite as helping bring him out of this ordeal and retain his sanity? The music of Neil Young. Hasselbach said whenever he was depressed, he would put on some Neil. He has every album Neil has ever done.

So there you have it: Listening to Neil can prevent you from being a Neo-Nazi. Kind of interesting/uplifting to hear that our man's music has made such a difference in this guy's life.

Subject: Emmylou on Neil: "I love his voice"

There's been mention here about the new Emmylou & Linda Ronstadt Western Wall: The Tuscon Sessions album, and how Neil's on it. Here's a short article from Launch about it:

Neil Young is among the many guests and collaborators on Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions, the new duo project by Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris. The pair recruited Young, an old buddy of both, to sing on their version of Bruce Springsteen's Across The Border, and to play harmonica on Jackson Browne's For A Dancer. Harris tells LAUNCH how they hooked Young into the project:
"Linda and I are great fans of his, and we've both worked with him before. I can't remember which [song] was the one that we originally thought we wanted him on, whether it was For A Dancer or Across The Border. But then we thought, 'Well, if we're gonna get him on one song, we'll get him on two. You know, no use in wasting Neil if he's there.' And then to have him sing...I love his voice."
After performing an industry-only showcase gig on Monday Ronstadt and Harris kick off a three-week tour Friday (Aug. 27) in Reno, Nev.

A couple of weeks ago I picked up The Shanti Project CD. Indeed the Red House Painters cover Midnight On The Bay (one of Neil's songs from Long May You Run). As with most songs they cover, RHP makes it their own.

The lyrics remain the same but the song sounds like a RHP song. The Red House Painters are very good (I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw them live) and they are in excellent company on this album. It features other previously unreleased tracks by them, and tracks by Low, Idaho and Hayden.

Most of the time I don't care for this type of "good cause" CD. I'd usually rather donate $25 cash rather than buy a CD that I'll never play, since it would just end up taking up space. This one is an exception, though. I do highly recommend it -- and the good cause is gravy.

Subject: Just heard 2 new CSNY tracks!

Heard them between sets at a Wilson Pickett / Julian Lennon show at the Fox in Boulder, CO. Who knows how or where the sound guy spinning discs between songs got ahold of this stuff, but it was the real deal.

First song was Looking Forward. I must admit that this is not one of my favorites of Neil's current batch of new songs, but I like this CSNY version better than the solo version. They get a great vocal blend, doesn't sound quite like anything else they've done before. Took me awhile to recognize the song, and longer still to realise it was CSNY. When I could pick out Nash on top of the harmony I knew it was our crew. Almost the whole thing is sung in 4 part harmony, only for a line or two does Neil step out alone, and the harmony comes back in quick when he does. Sounded like lots of acoustic guitars, with steady drum/bass backing. Overall a very engaging track.

Next was Cros-bo's paen to his own activist posturing, Stand And Be Counted. Oh excuse me, did i just poke fun at Croz? Mmmm, so I did. Well in any case the song is one of his mid-tempo bluesy-type things with a white-honky chorus where Cros and Nash get to shout with self-righteous indignation....think Long Time Gone interupted by snippets of Soldiers of Peace, Yours and Mine, etc. But a better sounding piece of music over all. Stillsy plays bluesy lead whilst Neil seems to be spitting out chunky, angular crunch chords behind him.

So am I the first Rustie to actually hear any tracks from the long-awaited magnum opus? Hey, everybody gets lucky once in awhile. This was in a bar with a murmuring crowd and all, but there is no doubt in me mind what I was hearing. Overall it sounds like CSNY will be represented on record to much better effect this time than on American Dream (of which I am noetheless fond, save the flames). Hey i'll plunk down my $15, especially for the Stills tunes.....

The songs are also listed, in this order with composers:

The story then says that Neil's songs were taken from his planned solo album over for the other guys to overdub on. Neil's tracks were recorded with Jim Keltner, Spooner Oldham and Duck Dunn. The other tracks feature backing from keyboardists Mike Finnegan and CPR's James Raymond, drummer Joe Vitale, and bass players Hutch Hutchinson and Dunn.

It says those who've heard the album have positive reviews, and there are no surprising turns. One person is quoted as saying "The whole album is pretty much mid-tempo. Neil's stuff is very wistful and beautiful, kind of folk-based. There aren't any real fast rockers, but then, that's never what they did before."

Her sepia-toned songs are spare, and they warn that the rural life is little more than toil and trouble. Her acoustic duets with David Rawlings could be high-fidelity songs a near descendant of the original Carter family would play. But don't call them Appalachian revivalists.

"People look at the way we present ourselves, and they're lulled by our acoustic demeanor and recording," says Welch. "It sounds like something you know--the Carter Family and other things. But there's a lot of stuff going on in there that isn't the Carter Family. We grew up listening to Neil Young, so it can never be as pure as the Carter Family.
