VIDEO INTERVIEW: Neil Young On playing with country music legends
Another video on the The Making of A Treasure with an interview of Neil Young at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
From Rolling Stone by Matthew Murphy:
'As a group of musicians, they were absolutely the peak,' Neil Young says of the International Harvesters, the band of country music veterans he played with on his new live album A Treasure, which was recorded on tour in 1984 and 1985. In this interview shot backstage at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Young told Rolling Stone's Patrick Doyle about how he was investigating his country roots at the time of that tour, and how he could never hope to recreate the magic of his collaboration with this particular set of musicians.
In a comment, Jonathan said:
This video got me to thinking - after I wiped away my own tear.
It's as if Neil truly is letting his guard down and giving fans a genuine insight into his personal thinking about his legacy. I'm so glad that he is opening the vaults and finally releasing one gem after another - gems that we all knew were in there but that he didn't release for numerous reasons.
It's fantastic that he is setting the pace for his Archives releases - not someone else who may have other motives other than the music itself - think Hendrix.
