Pegi Young Talks New Album, Bridge School Benefit | American Songwriter

From Pegi Young Talks New Album, Bridge School Benefit | American Songwriter by Evan Schlansky:
Don’t ask Pegi Young, Neil Young’s wife and a formidable songwriter and musician in her own right, to name her favorite track on the Bridge School Benefit Concerts 25th Anniversary Edition CD and DVD. “It’s like picking your favorite child. It’s just impossible. There are just so many incredible performances.”

Pegi was the impetus behind the star-studded acoustic charity concert that takes place every year in Mountain View, California, which Neil always helms. Artists featured on the CD/DVD are a who’s who of rock royalty — including Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Pearl Jam, and R.E.M..

"I Don't Want to Talk About It" and "Doghouse" on new Pegi Young album!

"Bracing For Impact," which features 10 songs recorded with her band the Survivors, as well as the Watson Twins singing backup, during a five-day session in May and early June in Los Angeles -- though the track "Baby Girl" dates back to sessions for her self-titled 2007 debut. Young also covers the Danny Whitten-penned Crazy Horse song "I Don't Want to Talk About It" and Tarheel Slim's "Number 9 Train," while Neil Young performs on four tracks and wrote one, "Doghouse."

In the midst of all this, Young has also been helping Neil work on his memoir, "Waging Heavy," which is due out in the fall of 2012. "I'm looking through it," she acknowledges, "not so much for content but more for 'This person's name is spelled like this' or 'Well, this didn't happen on this date...' So I'm helping him put things in the right place and in a timeline. And I'm also the spelling bee champ from back in the day, so I can help with that, too."

Bracing for Impact

Singer-songwriter Pegi Young has said, "I m just trying to tell some stories and make music that I can get behind. " That conviction has never rung truer than on her 2011 album, Bracing For Impact. Her third release, and second for Vapor Records, the 11-song disc spotlights Pegi s beautifully spare and resonant vocals, world-weary and eloquent lyricism, and hushed yet immediate emotional landscape. Bracing For Impact features Pegi once again accompanied by her acclaimed recording and touring band, the Survivors: legendary keyboard player Spooner Oldham on piano, bassist Rick Rosas, guitarist Kelvin Holly, and drummer Phil Jones. The album was produced by Pegi Young with the Survivors, with the exception of the final track, "Song For A Baby Girl, " produced by Elliot Mazer.

Eight of the album s 11 songs are originals written by Pegi Young, with highlights including "Flatline Mama" featuring a horn section and background vocals from The Watson Twins "No Heart Beats Sound, " and "Trouble In A Bottle. " Neil Young wrote the rollicking "Doghouse, " and contributes background vocals and harmonica as well. Neil is also featured playing electric guitar on "Lie" and "Song For A Baby Girl, " and on harmonica for "Number 9 Train, " written by the late bluesman Tarheel Slim. On "I Don t Want To Talk About It" a song by Crazy Horse s Danny Whitten that first appeared on that group s 1971 album Chandra Wilson delivers additional vocals.
