VIDEO COMP: 1976 Neil Young & Crazy Horse

"

As Neil Young’s 2017 self imposed sabbatical continues, we continue our journey into the past of the TW Archives and other sources.

As one of TW's more fearless commenters TopangaDaze says regarding the above video: "I'm sure many of you have seen it, but I just stumbled across it".

Here's a great live compilation from 1976 showing vintage solo Neil and some great Crazy Horse work including the new guy Poncho.

Tracks include:

Budokan--Tokyo
0:00 Mellow My Mind
3:25 Too Far Gone
6:38 Once I Was In Love ("No One Seems To Know")
9:14 Country Home
15:47 Don't Cry No Tears
18:35 Drive Back
24:06 Cowgirl In The Sand
30:00 Lotta Love
33:00 The Losing End (When You're On)

Hammersmith Odeon--London
37:25 Tell Me Why
40:02 Stringman
43:43 Human Highway
46:52 Down By The River
59:00 Cortez The Killer

Glascow, Scotland--Busking (familiar to many here)
1:07:16 The Old Laughing Lady

(Thanks TopangaDaze! The time machine rolls on ... and no one seems to know...)

After posting, we received a number of informative comments on the compilation video sources.

"Yesteryear of the Horse," pro-shot (apparently in conjunction with the planned Odeon-Budokan live album that supposedly will surface as an Archives release): http://www.guitars101.com/forums/f146/neil-young-yesteryear-horse-1976-pro-ntsc-dvd-113092.html

From "Shakey": The show at the Nippon Budokan Hall in Tokyo on March 11 (1976) was being filmed for a documentary and recorded for a live album, and - without telling their bandmates - Billy and Poncho dropped acid before going on. "We did Cowgirl in the Sand and Billy and Ralph went up to sing the backgrounds," Poncho says. "I opened my eyes and saw big mandalas comin' out of the back of both their heads, all these colors and shit. I couldn't even look up, I was so high. I'd hit the strings of my guitar - they were like 80 different colors - and they bounced off the floors and hit the ceiling. At the end of the second song Neil came runnin' over, stuck his head between me and Billy and goes, 'Man, we're psychedelic tonight!' ... The whole rest of the night I don't even think we made a mistake. It was unbelievable."
Thanks Babbo B.! Great background info.

Does anyone know the origin of this material? I'm generally familiar with the '76 tour as I long ago wore out my Boston Music Hall bootleg from the tour, but I hadn't seen much of this video footage.

Was this filmed for a potential movie, or is it somehow just a very good fan video?

Sadly, there doesn't seem to be much quality video footage of Neil from the early to mid 70s, so I found this to be an unexpected joy...

I assume all of the footage was filmed during the Europe and Japan shows. After a little research it looks like it's a compilation from the Budokan in Tokyo and the Hammersmith Odeon in London...

Thanks for posting! I enjoyed every minute of it!!!!! Love "Old Spud Blues" and "Too Far Gone"

From "Shakey": Outside of a couple of clips, both the album and film from the Odeon/Budokan shows remains unreleased. The film in particular is quite a document: A hazy-looking Young muffs lyrics left and right while whipping out offhanded but painfully great solos during "Drive Back" and "The Losing End."

The song "Too Far Gone" appears here but wasn't
released on record until 1989's Freedom album.

1970's Neil is considered his watermark decade for
songwriting for a lot of fans.

I think it was around 1976 he was in between Carrie and Pegi.
Lots of material there! Lots of drinkin' time with the boys!
Comes a time, eh?

You've all heard about Col. Bruce Hampton, right?(you can watch it on YouTube)
God forbid, but Neil's taking his art to the end too.
He's a painter, but paints the pictures in our heads with lyrics and notes.
Music.....in head.

"No One Seems To Know" is the actual name for the third song.

 
At 5/05/2017 05:00:00 PM, Blogger TopangaDaze said...

Yea, I noticed that and meant to change it, but I just copied and pasted from above which was taken from the youtube details...

Regardless, not my favorite song, but it's always nice to hear (and especially see) the rarities.

Budokan isn't the show where Billy and Poncho drop acid is it? And Poncho is shooting lasers out of his guitar?
It's coming to me now, that might be the Osaka show.
There's also a show from Japan that Neil or one of the guys mentioned as having a tape from, and that it's far superior to Zuma?

Man I love that story. It'd be cool to pinpoint that moment in cowgirl in the video.

I knew Babbo B would come through.

Such a pleasure to watch these ragged and incredible performances from '76! I always love it when he picks up the banjo! Thanks for posting, as usual. I rely on your posts as I rely on the sun to shine. This has been a miserable Winter and Spring in Seattle, so you are actually more reliable than the sunshine, as is Neil Young, the shape-shifting subject of our fascination. I see why he didn't release Too Far Gone right away... it wasn't ready yet. Favorite bar, favorite car? "Department of redundancy Department." I seem to recall he met Poncho in Mexico. As random as meeting Briggs while hitch-hiking. So fun to watch these videos. Thanks again! I hope the movie with Daryl Hannah is somehow good, and better than Human Highway.
