Rare Neil Young Performance of "LOUIE LOUIE" for KFJC Radio, 1983
An extremely rare version of "Louie Louie" by Neil Young from 1983.
Neil Young performs a unique version of the song "Louie Louie" during the legendary KFJC Radio LOUIE LOUIE marathon of 1983.
This particular performance was uncovered, and reconstructed during the audio air check archival recovery project that utilized an international team of audio technicians. Working diligently for approximately 8 years, the entire 63-hour marathon of 800 unique renditions of the song "Louie Louie" has been fully digitized and catalogued.
This video footage and audio archival project has been orchestrated by producer/ director Eric Predoehl, who is currently working on a rather ambitious documentary on the song, featuring exclusive interviews with songwriter Richard Berry, the Kingsmen, the Wailers, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Little Bill Engelhart, Jack Ely, Jim Manolides, Arnie Ginsburg, and a lot of other people that helped transform this song into such iconic song.
