Le Noise Sessions: Neil Young Posts New Video w/ Unseen Footage + AOTW: TTN

Le Noise Sessions
via Hearse Theater | NYA

A new Neil Young video from Le Noise Sessions has been posted to via Hearse Theater | NYA.

With a running time of 1hr, 17min, Le Noise Sessions was produced by Daniel Lanois and filmed by CK Vollick. The newly released video contains unseen footage from Le Noise recording sessions in 2010.

The Le Noise Sessions features the eight songs of the album, plus four "Le Noise" outtakes. Daniel Lanois had already mentioned "You Never Call" and "For The Love of Man" in interviews in 2010. While "You Never Call" remains unreleased, "For The Love of Man" appears on "Psychedelic Pill" with Crazy Horse. Neil reveals in the video that he had already recorded "Twisted Road" and "Born In Ontario" with Daniel Lanois. These two songs did not make it to "Le Noise" and were also included in 2012 on "Psychedelic Pill".

In other Neil news, ‘Tonight’s the Night’ is the current album of the week. There is a 12-minute ‘Tonight’s the Night’ video, as well. The 12-minute ‘Tonight’s the Night’ video contains footage from the album completion party and consists mainly of Neil and friends shooting pool.

Listening to these fascinating outtakes, with all the alternate songs, arrangements and production styles that were tried out, it's clear that Neil and Daniel Lanois had experimented with enough material to tell any number of different musical stories on Le Noise. So it's a mystery how they managed to conclude with something as dull as the finished album.

The main thing I notice is that they abandoned most of the best songs. So chilling, sparsely-produced gems like For The Love Of Man and You Never Call (a revelation on organ) are swapped out for Angry World.

And yes, Angry World has a great guitar tone. But For The Love Of Man is a great song. So there's no contest, really.

That's what Le Noise has a lack of: great songs. And the trademark Lanois production, as exciting as it is, does little to disguise that. Whereas the sparser-sounding outtakes, beautifully captured on film, come across wonderfully: emotional, unpretentious and moving.

Every cloud has a silver lining, of course. And by bypassing For The Love Of Man on Le Noise, it was free to become an integral part of Psychedelic Pill. Where it works brilliantly as a prologue to Walk Like A Giant. So the lesson I'm taking from that is not to decide too quickly whether something is a positive or negative. Or as Rick Danko said, "thank God for time". Though sometimes, of course, we'd all like it to go a bit slower, or sometimes a bit faster.

Anyway! The real cause for celebration is that Young and Co. are finally starting to upload some extra stuff to the website, some rare footage and outtake gems, rather than the same old stuff anyone using the website already owns already. That's what a proper Archive is, isn't it? The cobwebbed-covered stuff that was hidden away behind the mixing desk ("Where's the tape of LA Sports Arena 1991, or Cal Expo 1996, or Hollywood 2014? That's what I wanna hear. And I'll pay extra for it, too").

And it's also exactly the sort of thing the website needs to create a bit of a buzz, a bit of excitement and word-of-mouth. And in the internet age, it needs to happen often. I'll be arguing in favour of them adding more exciting stuff very soon, rather than retreating to the 90's strategy of releasing one album every 16 years.

And the fanbase needs to respond to their generosity by watching and listening, by enjoying and sharing. That's how the word spreads, and that's how the website finds a route to on-going success.

Just FWIW, the TTN video (and related still photos that we've seen previously, like the ones you posted here) are from the album release party in 1975 - there was no "album completion party" in 1973.

@ Scotsman - much thanks. We're gonna do a TW COTM on this one and provide some more context on Le Noise. When we were putting this up yesterday, wee were pretty floored realizing this came out in 2010?1 Almost 10 years?1 Seems like day before yesterday, practically.

@ Babbo - thanks as always. makes sense. someone else mentioned someone on the film wearing a TTN album cover shirt. So that kind of seals the deal. 1975 it is then.

we'll update. once again, humbled and awed by the rustie crowd-sourcing and fact checking crews.

Wasn't able to listen until today. Devastated to see it already taken down. Did anyone manage to rip the stream while it was up? I'm a paying archives subscriber, so not looking to rip Neil off.

...make sure to catch the unique video of Hurricane from 2013, before that's gone too! It's kind of like a very atmospheric video version of Arc, with an added dose (or downpour) of Earth.

While I thought the TNT video was close to worthless, I enjoyed the Le Noise videos. To an extent, anyway. I'm not a big fan of the album itself, but I enjoyed hearing You Never Call.

Hi, I was reading a article about neil Young's view about the migrate children being locked up, maybe Mr young could do a song with other artist about it. Just a thought. I have been a fam of Neil young for almost 50 years.I still rock on. Thankyou Vivian Wantoch.

@ gary - yeah, TTN video was pretty shakey and grainy. Oh well. Guess that's why Briggs was a Producer and not a camera guy. but you do have to admit just seeing neil shooting pool in a suit and tie is sort of worth the price f admission.

@ Vivian - good suggestion.
