First time writer to your site, long time reader,
and a Neil fan for the past 35 years. If Neil's show in Tel Aviv is still happening at this time
next week (given the circumstances), my "dream"
is he and The Horse premiere "Shots" for the first time. Not the acoustic version from 1978, of course, but the ramped up blowout of the tune
from "re-ac-tor." When this song first appeared on a record in 1981, some thought it was a response to Middle East situation at that time. Well, some things never change, they just remain the same. Chances are it won't happen, but it would be something if it did. Keep on rockin'. Pete

i wish he will play in Tel aviv :

1.I've Been Waiting For You
2. Goin' Home
3. Cortez The Killer

we love you Neil !!!!

Goin' Home is Neil's best song in the last 15 years. I hope to hear it live too.

Cortez would be a great second encore, or in the main set before Free World. The setlist is already very good, but most of the "long instrumental" songs are in the first half. A Cortez and Hurricane in the second half would balance it to perfection!

I'll say this: Stand Up And Save The World is better than anything on CSNY 1974*.

*that might be a slightly presumptive comment as I haven't actually listened to every song on it yet.

Dear Youngsters,

Allow me to share a thought with you. The ongoing tour of Neil Young and Crazy Horse has been marked by Billy Talbot’s unfortunate health accident. There has been a discussion about whether a Horse without Billy Talbot is Crazy enough. Interestingly, the inclusion of the wonderful bass player Rick Rosas draws attention to the role of Billy Talbot in the regular Horse lineup. Listening to the recordings of the first concerts of the present tour we can hear – as far as YouTube allows – marked differences in sound and approach in comparison to the performances of the Alchemy Tour of 2013. There is a different handling of rhythm in the ‘new’ Horse constellation. Yes, the alchemy is different. They’re cooking things differently than last year. And why should it be otherwise, when you change one pivotal player in a team of four, you bet the band will sound differently. Apparently, Rick Rosas has a more sparing, laid back, lighter tone than the fat and heavy, stomping style of Billy Talbot. And with that, he influences the sound of the entire band.

This – admittedly very superficial – observation made me think about a listening sensation. Over the last 25 years, I noticed that Crazy Horse has developed a rough, stomping style of playing that presents a perfect carpet for Young to perform his guitar solos. But the Horse’s sound has become less agile, less flexible over time. It probably started around 1990, with Ragged Glory (the Live album still had a greater variety in rhythm and sound). Now Ragged Glory contains more than a few wonderful songs and it is a spectacular example of how the Horse inspires Neil Young’s guitar playing. However, I seldom play the entire album in one go; it is too much, and too much of the same. Psychedelic Pill has the same effect, even to an extreme. It is like listening to all Anton Bruckner’s symphonies in one day. If I had to characterize it, I’d call it a typically white elderly male stomp, an elephants’ stampede in slow motion. I’ve often thought that the sound originated in the band members putting on weight, becoming more sluggish and heavy. One too easily gets the impression is that – indeed – it’s all one song. There is a heaviness, a monotony of pulse, which to my ears stymies Neil Young’s versatility. Needless to say, I have always preferred the more funkier, punkier, speedier Neil Young (or the lyrical one, of course). (Perhaps a good example is the Eldorado album – with Rick Rosas on bass – which is an often neglected highlight of Neil Young’s oeuvre.)

This may sound as a severe judgement, and perhaps it will enflame some big NY fans. But let’s not forget that appreciation is also – and preferably – critical appreciation. We’re taking this artist seriously, after all. Of course there is an enormous space for disagreement here (please do!), as many may particularly like the fat stomping sound of the post-1990 Horse. But that’s a matter of taste. The real point of discussion is whether we indeed hear this happening, and whether the Horse, and Billy Talbot in particular, has heavily influenced Neil Young’s sound over the last decades. We tend to see Young as a master choosing his comrades according to his inner voice, but have we really thought about the fact that influences also go the other way?

And now we’re in the midst of the Alchemy Tour #2. It’s fascinating to see what’s happening.

As I said, just a thought.

Cheers from Europe

Absolutely, I agree that Psych Pill can fairly be described as "fat and sluggish". I actually like that album a lot, because there is enough genius on it to make up for the weaker parts. The first 10 minutes or so of Giant are as good as anything on any NY album, ever. But the album as a whole is admittedly bit turgid in places.

Less to do with Billy's playing, I'm guessing, and more to do with the song arrangements and overall production. Billy Talbot has been a key part of many of Neil's strongest records. It's correct that Rick also has a lot to offer.

Eldorado is indeed a great album: the production is a bit too "eighties" in places with too much ear-piercing cymbals. But overall an exciting record. Neil's guitar on it will shake down your walls if you turn it up loud.

my feelings on the PP record are well documented and restating such serves no purpose. Lets all just look forward and rejoice in the new tour, and I hope we see it here in the US of A . signed former "Doubter"

At 7/11/2014 12:55:00 PM, Blogger Primitive Guitar said...

I've liked what I've heard so far. I do find it interesting that for the last 20 years, Neil has essentially not played almost 2/3 of his catalogue. He does seem to be mixing it up this time around, but I bet we will never hear anything off Reactor, Broken Arrow, PP, Greendale, Chrome Dreams, Prairie Wind etc. again. It's too bad. Instead of playing Love and Only Love play Big Time!

At 7/11/2014 01:38:00 PM, Blogger growl said...

Hey Vacant H, I know what you mean but Neil did treat us to Surfer Joe AND Opera Star, both off Reactor, just last year. But in Melbourne he did say T-Bone is unlikely to make a reappearance!

At 7/11/2014 01:48:00 PM, Blogger Primitive Guitar said...

Right, Reactor was probably not a good example. My point is that there are lots of songs I'd love to hear again off from the last two decades that I'm afraid are gone forever.

At 7/11/2014 01:59:00 PM, Blogger dickie said...

@Minke Toer: I agree completely. You put it very well. The Horse is unimpeachable, of course, but sometimes (well, ever since about 1990) they let themselves get lost in a noisescape from which the phoenix of Neil must rise. But, to be honest, I've never seen or heard the phoenix rise higher than in 1976 and again 1978, when The Horse provided Neils guitar the perfect background to soar (yes, lyrically) instead of getting bogged down in the noisefest. Still, that also has its moments...

What do you think about "Sleeps with Angels"? Is it the exception that proves the rule? I like your insight and I'll definitely be surfing youtube over the next few months to do some observing on my own, but when I think about your "rough, stomping" description I come back to something I've always thought about "Change Your Mind", the only song on the album with long instrumental sequences between verses, it doesn't sound "rough and stomping" like a lot of the longer, drawn out Crazy Hose songs do. But almost quiet and Jazz like behind the vocal and during the instrumentals (ok, let's be fair, jazz like when compared to other Crazy Horse offerings).
Anyways, Billy played on that and the whole album stands out for me as the only Crazy Horse piece that doesn't fit your description.

Good insight though, can't wait to hear more as the tour progresses.

Dear Tom: Thanks. You're absolutely right about "Sleeps with Angels", which is a marvelous album that proves the flaws in my conjecture. Or confirms it? Of course I've thought about it when trying to formulate my thoughts on late-Crazy Horse style. We may differ about Change Your Mind which in fact is a bit an oddball on the album. Piece of Crap harks back to the Crazy Horse sound on "Life". Many of the other songs have a different treatment altogether. Did I read somewhere that Young made the band members play instruments they were not (or less) used to? Frank Sampedro on piano etc? In any case, he tamed the Horse there, with a masterly result. (And for clarity's sake: late Crazy Horse style did surely result in some real gems too).

At 7/11/2014 07:35:00 PM, Blogger ForeverYounger said...

I find the biggest difference between pre 1990 horse play and post 1990 play is the "droning". on and on and on. not that there's anything wrong with this style, just sometimes I wish they would end a song for the sake of playing another.
just my .02

At 7/11/2014 07:55:00 PM, Blogger TopangaDaze said...

ForeverYounger must have read my mind! Ever since the Weld tour, NY/CH started incorporating the long, drawn out false endings to songs in concert. It always struck me as self-indulgent and basically unlistenable. I've chosen to bypass the last several NY/CH tours. Personally, the "newer" style bores me to tears (as well as quite a few fans in attendance).

I do think there's a huge distinction to make between recorded works and live concerts. On record, it still works fairly successfully (and I can skip/pause tracks as needed based on my mood tolerance).

This tour seems like things may be refreshingly new (based on songs played and style). Sounds good so far, but will welcome Billy back with open arms. Get well Billy!

Surely it is up to Neil Young & Crazy Horse themselves if this is Crazy Horse or not. I was at the Cork gig and in all honesty it was something else. The word I would use is "fresh". The fantastic backing vocalists I think have energized Neil Young. It maybe takes the pressure off a little. The riff on the new song, Who's Going To Save The Earth is stunning, different. It is maybe the first time at a Neil Young gig where i felt genuinely surprised. And every time in a good way. Perhaps being early in the tour helps. I am gutted for Billy Talbot but when he back he will be thrilled I think. Crazy Horse have kicked on. Billy Talbot is Crazy Horse yes but Crazy Horse is also Billy Talbot so don't be spooking the horse just because he is missing a few shows. Rick Rosas isn't not just anyone. If he wasn't an option there was no option. It's not like they did auditions. Rick is merely holding the fort (or stable) for Billy, and i would say with his absolute blessing and thanks for doing so. It is not for anyone to judge is this Crazy Horse but Crazy Horse themselves and clearly it is in fact Crazy Horse.
