NOW PLAYING: A "Blistering" Version of "Crime in The City" by Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Buffalo, 1991


"Crime in The City" by Neil Young &Crazy Horse
Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, New York - 1991-02-16

Just recently, Neil Young announced a new "Weld Series" planned for Neil Young Archives and the 1st clip has now been posted on Hearse Theater | NYA.

This 8 minute+ "Crime in The City" version by Neil Young & Crazy Horse is from Buffalo on the WELD Tour in 1991 and is "blistering", per Neil.

As mentioned, the 1st release from the "Weld Series" will be from Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, New York, on 1991-02-16. A preview clip was posted recently on NYA of "Campaigner" from Buffalo which indicates that this will be a performance oriented release concert as opposed to the original WELD release which contained vast amounts of audience reaction. Apparently, Manager Elliot Roberts was quite opposed to the WELD editing that favored audience over band. Neil seems to be correcting this decision by saying: "Well Elliot, you got it. Better late than never my old friend."

Here is an in depth look at one of Neil Young's most lyrical intense songs. And -- as with so much of Young's song writing gems -- it remains unreleased in all of its full ragged glory splendor. The following analysis looks closely at the very interesting and unusual development of the unreleased epic 18-minute "Sixty To Zero" into the shorter rocking "Crime in The City".

More on THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EPIC NEIL YOUNG SONG: FROM “SIXTY TO ZERO” TO “CRIME IN THE CITY”.

Neil Young announced fireside concerts (see NYA), that might be as close as it gets to have him in your private place, being at his private place.

I saw this series of 1991 concerts (best I've ever seen, and I've seen NY, 9 times ) with CH in the Fall of 1991 in Calgary, just as the US was marshalling up the troops to go into Irac. He opened with an absolutely blistering Jimi Hendrix's Star Spangled Banner with the Stars and Stripes behind him. My friend Joe from Cape Breton happened to hit it right as he just heading up North to go pipelining. We missed a bit of Sonic Youth -- certainly did not miss hearing them as we snagged a couple of beers in my case, 6 in this case. We lost each other in the rukus were very relieved to find each other again. We just danced with our arms around each other on the Aluminum Stairs of the Saddle Dome and never sat down the entire concert -- next to our seats. What a concert! Guitar strings were shredded, waving in the breeze, the roadie who ever it was would just bring him out a new guitar after he used the shredded strings for a little feedback, ala Jimi Page but without the wand. Never have I seen such intensity. I am really looking forward to the Buffalo show. Did he open with Star Spangled Banner in Buffalo or was that too far away from the Irac War?
