Hi Thrasher! Just popping in for a quick hello. Yes, it will be interesting to see what Neil has recorded last night for us. Given that it is pre-recorded and edited, I assume it will be up there for a while to enjoy. Hope it isn't only up there for 30min (as though it were live) or it will likely fall during one of my night time meetings! How about Will To Love or Soldier? Two great fireside songs! Peace

My wife and I just finished watching the Fireside Sessions and were both extremely charmed by the experience. What a lovely gift to see and hear Neil just being Neil. Perfectly imperfect as usual and although edited, it felt spontaneous. Razor Love was the highlight for me, particularly when he stopped to work out the bridge. With the volume of material he has written over the decades, it’s expected that he wouldn’t be able to access everything perfectly, and seeing and hearing him work it out on the spot was exquisite. Definitely a highlight for me.

What a wonderful thing for Neil and Daryl to create for everyone to enjoy. A loving and generous gift. I maintain that NYA is without question, the bargain of the century, and worth far more than we are asked to pay. Thanks Neil for the opportunity to enjoy your company.

I cannot see it on NYA Times Contrarian, though it is showing in the Hearse Theater as coming up..

vampire blues was also shown on the luck reunion virtual concert...which was incredible! did anyone else catch that one?

At 3/20/2020 10:57:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

thanks everyone for updates!

@ Wildgift - stream from last night is still up. hit re-fresh, re-login, clear cache, etc

Dan Swan captured it very well. Neil's voice hasn't aged a bit. I first heard Sugar Mountain live at CSNY in Toronto on 9-1-74. What a gift these Sessions are from Neil/Darryl to us.

Be safe. Cough into your welbow. Wash hands frequently. Don't lick anyone's teeth.

I wish it was downloadable within the app like Amazon movies are. All NYA streaming content freezes and skips on my Galaxy S10e and my Samsung Tab A - and I'm in an area with otherwise good reception.

Just incredible and wonderful to enjoy.

I'm in Italy and today we have touched more than 4K human beings dead for the virus. We are living strange and terrific times, lined up for some bread and fruits, in almost deserted streets and constantly in telework...


Thanks Neil and Daryl

oh it's so heartening to see your guitar hero hit the wrong chords on his own song. thank You Neil!

wait... ort did he just rearrange the song?

........ah..... continue!

I have struggled with that bridge for years when I play Razor Love!!!

very encouraging seeing the man who wrote it struggle a bit (barely he did fine)


long live Neil Young!

Wonderful stuff while sheltered in place in Chicago.
Almost seemed like we were sitting at the fire with Neil.

Thanks Neil, wonderful

Yeah I thought Little Wing started out like Mexico as well.

First time hearing Neil blow the harmonica on a version of Tell Me Why isn't it?

At 3/21/2020 08:45:00 AM, Blogger darlobuc said...

Should enjoy these moments, don't know how many more times we'll get to see this sort of thing.

At 3/21/2020 09:57:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Lone Red Rider - great to see you pop by! Thanks for visiting.

a silver lining here is that we've been hearing from all sorts of long lost souls who fell off the human highway.

folks always come back to neil in troubled times. rusties know that music soothes the soul.

yeah & Mexico intro?! very cool.

after the storm comes the son.

A Great gift on these strange days
Thanks a lot Neil!
