Rare 1985 Neil Young in New Zealand



A rare February 1985 with Neil Young in New Zealand while on tour with Crazy Horse.

Interviewer by Karyn Hay does a nice job of drawing Neil out on a few of the typical topics like playing with Crazy Horse and changing musical styles.

Thanks Denis!

One thing about Neil,whenever he is interviewed by whoever there's never any airs and grace bullshit.
interesting to see his comments about how he and Crazy horse compliment each other and actually enhance his playing....so, we have a buffalo springfield reunion concert...how about a crazy horse reunion concert?..Just for you MNOTR!xxx

Doc, it's not just Crazy Horse there. I think the band's official name was Crazy Harvesters (musicians from both bands) playing those gigs in Z-land.

When you look at his life & work during this time, you wonder how either survived. One usually succumbs to the other like a disease, but not with Neil.

Some people say he either sold his soul to the devil or he had an angel by his side. I think most of here at Thrasher's Blog realize he just bore a hole and pulled himself right through the middle.

Truly amazing.

Thank you Thrasher and Thrashette for all you do. Where you folks find this rare 'stuff' is beyond me. (maybe Archives Guy?, btw we haven't heard from him in while, now have we?! Hello in theeeerrre...O). Since I have been a long time watcher/reader of the Wheat and speak kindly of you to everyone I meet, and also, since I have just found a few coins around the yard lately, please remind me how I can contribute to the cause. You folks do such a great job of informin' us regular folk of everything Neil......
I'm just an old fella from Torona, rememberin' the Riverboat, now livin' in Calgary and yes we saw Neil on the last three times thru the region and also the long lost Trunk Show movie.

This little film clip got me reminissing and digging up some old Neil favourites/treasures.Just listened to 'borrowed tune' off tonight's the night.I love having these little Neil renaissances of some of the older albums
coz I always seem to listen to them and get a new appreciation as I did listening to the 'Year of the Horse' album.
Does anyone else out there have these Neil rebirths? just wonderin'

Doc, What's even more surprising is how I can remember the lyrics from the most obscure songs that I haven't listened to in 30-40 years! It's like re-discovering a lost treasure. It was like, "How do I know these words?"

A while back I found an old letter from a boyfriend away at college writing about how he can't wait for me to listen to this new album he just got! It was "After the Goldrush." He said, "I just know you're gonna luv this one song." Since my house was the only one with a real stereo sound system, we blasted that album a week later after I picked him up from school. (Parents were out-of-town.) LSS, neighbors came over, smelled the pot, told me to turn it down, and then called the rangers stating they found where all the pot in town was coming from. Rangers came over and I told them I only had one joint. They asked, "Did Frank sell you that shit?" I said, "Why no, I got it from this guy who I let use the phone to make a call at the grocers." Rangers said, "Don't buy any shit from Frank, he's gonna get busted and your family don't want to be involved." One of new rangers we called Gingersnap asked, "Whaddya listening to?" (Cripple Creek Ferry is playing in background.) And I said, "Neil Young." He said he liked John Fogerty. I said I liked them both. Then he asked me if I was busy the next night because he had off. My boyfriend (who was Frank!) was hiding upstairs. Broke up with Frank that night and started dating the ranger. Gave him the only Neil Young album I had to listen. We danced 2 step to the Emperor of Wyoming & tried to decode "Last Trip to Tulsa." Ranger ended up dating my sister, too! She was way way into the Moody Blues and Pete Townshend but they made it work somehow.

Mother...did the ranger ask if he could be Frank with you?

All the gems found as shorts, interviews, long lost cousins recordings, concert clips..etc of Neil and Co. are what separte this wheat field from all the chaffing going on in all other blogdoms.

It's always good to be harvesting.
As always T - great job culling the fields of our dreams.
