NEW VIDEO: "Mother Earth" by Neil Young from "Honour The Treaties" Tour

New video for Neil Young's song "Mother Earth" from "Honour The Treaties" tour, Calgary, Jan 20, 2014.

Breathtaking doesn't begin to describe, even after multiple views still processing.
"Recently, Neil Young completed a brief tour of his native Canada consisting of four benefit concerts under the banner of 'Honor The Treaties.' The nature of these shows were assembled to raise money and awareness for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN) Legal Defense Fund. The ACFN refer to themselves as K'ai Taile Dene, meaning 'people of the land of the willow.' A Legal Defense fund was set up to support the ACFN's legal challenges against oil companies and government that are obstructing their traditional lands and rights. As people of the land the ACFN have used and occupied their traditional lands in the Athabasca region for thousands of years, hunting, trapping, fishing and gathering to sustain themselves and continue spiritual cultural rights passed down through generations. The ACFN's legal challenges will ensure the protection of their traditional lands, eco-systems and unique rights guaranteed by Treaty 8, the last and largest of the nineteenth century land agreements made between First Nations and the government of Canada, are upheld for the benefit of future generations."

Thank God Neil provided his own pump power for this thing or else Jason Smith might have an opening to whine!

Sure looks like Hiroshima in 1945 to me.

Can see why Neil stands by his comparison.

Why does the youtube blurb say it's a new song? It's Neil's own channel.

Love the pipes vibrating. Just like that great Canadian pipeline. cool

The one small problem with the song "Mother Earth" is that it totally sucks. Long and boring, a lethal combination.

@anon 03:57:00 - just for the sake of argument, let's say it is " Long and boring" (it isn't actually).

How about, maybe the message matters most? Maybe, just maybe, its the spirit and passion that really makes this song so urgent and timeless?

peace be with you in your search for short and exciting music.

Maybe this one will sooth your soul instead

Finally a decent recording of these shows. It' a pity that Neil doesn't let download his concerts as Bruce does now (FLAC-MP3).

So Tired
