UNBOXING VIDEO: BARN by Neil Young & Crazy Horse

UNBOXING VIDEO: BARN by Neil Young & Crazy Horse

Here is a cool video of the opening of the new BARN deluxe edition boxset by Neil Young & Crazy Horse.

I have very recently started to make Youtube vids as a way to reconnect with the world after losing my twin brother to COVID. I made an unboxing vid and thanks to Greedy Hand offering a download with every purchase, an in depth review. I was wondering if you would know where best to post this for Neil fans to see as I am a bit of an amateur as a creative, but have been a Neil fan since 2000ish. Its very off the cuff and conversational and believe a lot of fans may enjoy it. Especially since others just open the box but don't talk about the lineup, the music etc. 

Thanks very much

Glasgow , Scotland


Thanks for making and submitting Dave!  very cool.  So sorry about your twin. A very wonderful Tribute to the Brotherhood. 

 Produced by The Volume Dealers – Neil Young and Niko Bolas, the album will be available on vinyl (special edition), CD, cassette and Deluxe Box set. The special edition vinyl contains 6 behind-the-scenes photographs from the Barn sessions. Available as a numbered first pressing, the Deluxe Box set contains the special edition LP, CD and Blu-ray of the film Barn.
(Watch out for The Greedy Hand, but you'll be supporting Thrasher's Wheat. Thanks!)

Nice video, Dave and also kind of funny that there are more people who save the hype stickers (mine go to the box covers of my personal NYA with all the other memorabilia).
Unfortunately my boxset did not arrive as of today and chances are very dim that it will be delivered before Christmas. I do not understand this because I ordered my copy in the first hours after pre-sale started, admittedly I wanted a low number on this package (greedy hand, for sure). So while everybody is commenting away, some Europeans are stuck with their anticipation (if they don't use the DL code), with the synchronicity not being there the late delivery will make for a different perception, and consequently comments about pseudo-intellectualism). So maybe I should not read anything about barn on this blog or buy a vinyl copy at a store but I have been to this movie before and now own four versions of Fillmore East.

Thanks Dionys!
I ordered mine from the EU Greedy hand store, and it came on Monday, so 3 days late but the DL code was with me on release date. Normally I would wait, but I thought if I wanted to do a vid, it would be cool to review AND unbox. After all, Neils boxes do tend to be similiar-ish so there is not always a lot to add.

All the best for the festive season!

Hey, if you guys want to watch Neil sell out even more of his legacy, there's a new interview of him with Howard Stern, a man who once made light of Zeke's and Ben's health issues. Apparently they talk about Neil's trip out in the rowboat with Graham Nash, among other topics that have discussed endlessly.

Sorry for the sarcasm, but there was a time when Neil wouldn't give a guy like Stern the time of day, and that used to mean a lot to me. Times have changed, though. Guess it's part of that "New Normal" I keep hearing so darn much about.....

At 12/21/2021 05:41:00 AM, Blogger Andy Walters said...

Yes Richie I thought it was an odd interview especially the well trod 'more barn' story. Neil did compliment Crosby on his vocals though. Neil seems to be taking an evangelical role on the state of the planet, I'm not convinced.

At 12/21/2021 01:37:00 PM, Blogger Jonathan said...

Stern is a great interviewer -

but I agree with Richie somewhat...

8 years left to save the Earth according to Neil

He's passionate that's for sure

Richie, Am I right in thinking that Howard Stern is a schmuck? I mean, he seems to go down into the garbage pale quite often. I was curious as to why Neil would do an interview with him but I figured he must have another side or something (or be a great interviewer). Did Neil really say eight years left to save the planet?

At 12/22/2021 10:05:00 AM, Blogger Andy Walters said...

I found the whole interview very odd with Neil making up the 8 years nonsense more scaremongering we don't need at this time, unlike Neil he seems to be taking himself very seriously these days.

At 12/22/2021 10:08:00 AM, Blogger Abner Snopes said...

Andy, I agree with you. We don't need strange predictions like this one. But in U.S. someone needs to keep sounding the alarm. The senate just rejected a very important infrastructure bill- billions for renewable energy.

I'm sorry about your brother David.

He has most definitely mellowed out in the last decade, but he was nasty beyond belief for many years before that. Stern has always admitted that he was a big fan of Neil's music, but I was a regular listener back in the 90's and I can remember Stern making fun of Neil's situation with his kids, the fact that he had two afflicted children with two different mothers. Stern went after everybody pretty hard back in those days, yet it seems most folks seem to want to ignore the 90's Howard Stern. How cancel culture has ignored him seems really weird to me, there have been many who have been nailed to the cross who said far less worse than Howard.

Neil is free to do what he wants, of course, yet it does seem pretty strange to see him so chummy with someone who was such a nasty guy not that long ago, especially someone who made light of Neil's family life.

At 12/23/2021 03:49:00 PM, Blogger Dionys said...

To be exact: Statistically we have 7 yrs, 6 m, 28 d, 16 hrs left (I spare you the minutes and seconds) until we will cross the date beyond which the Paris Climate accord to limit global warning to 1,5 °C can't be reached anymore. And this is not alarmist, but fairly optimistic. If we continue to fire up our forests globally at the current pace we will be there sooner.

The Glasgow COP26 conference reports admitted that even with drastic measures we will end up with an increase of 2.1 - 2,6 degrees. Unfortunately most people lack any imagination what midterm consequences this will have on their Miami Beach real estate not to speak of the lives of their grand children.

The German scientific Polarstern expedition came up with evidence that the Arctic Oceans's temperatures are already beyond their tipping point.

Neil Young's killing truth is inconvenient. He said so before.

The "8 years to save the planet" is not an invention by Neil, it's the view from the UN climate change panel that global emissions needed to be seriously reduced by 2030 in order to limit overall warming to the Paris Climate Accord target of 1.5 C warming by mid-century.
After 2030 that it becomes increasingly difficult (or in some views impossible) to slow or reverse warming significantly enough to prevent more serious sea level rises and extreme weather events by the 2050s.

So some environmental groups and governments of those states in the front line of climate change are now using it as a campaigning target, arguing that if we act significantly now it's better and cheaper than starting too late once we get to 2030. As happens when this sort of report deadline once it goes public it's been seized on as a sort of doomsday point of no return date, (it's not) rather than a being a marker beyond which dealing with the issue becomes all the more difficult.

But it has pissed off a lot of people that we can create and start distributing a vaccine for a new disease so rapidly, but re-orientating energy use with techniques we've known about for years - alongside new technologies - to address a problem we've known about for years just gets constantly kicked into touch like at Glasgow this year.

Neil has been committed to this issue for so long it's understandable that he would veer towards the ticking clock aspect, especially if he wants to see real big change during his own lifetime.

I can't comment on Mr Stern as I don't do chat shows in my own country let alone elsewhere in the world.

Tony "Hambone" embarrassed in the UK that we had a Prime Minister who bottled it at Glasgow this year.

Thank You for clearing this up for me, I should have known these numbers. Hard to keep up.

With regards to this thread Neil Young reacted one more time (with several items) to what has been commented on in this blog. His latest message on NYA's front page (December 29th) makes clear that the true opponent to decisive action isn't the climate change denier anymore but the climate change relativist who believes that we can return to our "normal" once the pandemic is over, and the effects of our present lifestyles (American Dream?) somehow can be mitigated for future generations or global warming is an issue with people far away. With almost 14°C today here in Munich while it should be below freezing the ice floe is going south. It all fits in with the 1991 - 2020 standard reference period. This part of the world already is beyond 1.5°.

There is much more to the "climate change relativist" than meets Neil's eyes (the relativist could also be a denier at bottom, with zero motivation to change). Many of the horrifying neo-liberals in the US have NO IDEA of the interconnected nature and scope of the problem. Not much awareness of agriculture and this is a massive global carbon footprint. My colleague and I have worked out the amount of fossil fuel to raise one 250 feeder pig for slaughter (I don't have the number with me as I relax by the fire). It is hard to believe. Methane from big ag and big ag is connected to a vast network of international trade and trillions of dollars (Iowa produced 48 million feeder pigs in 2020). Does anyone think that all the assholes buying and driving trucks and consuming like there is no tomorrow knows any of this stuff- and all I am doing is skimming the very surface of the systems. Getting ready to give a paper on the pork industry in Spain this summer- if I can go, as our safety is in jeopardy from people who will not get vaccinated. Think about it-NOTHING IS CHANGING in US culture. Our only hope is, as usual, younger citizens.
