The Who's Segue To Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl" in 1970

The Who


Here's a rare classic clip from The Who in 1970.

This is a finale jam of "My Generation"/ "See Me Feel Me" with a segue to Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl" around about ~7:00

From a concert at Tanglewood in 1970. (thanks HippieDream!) Enjoy

Watching this video made me realize that it was a genuine miracle that Kieth Moon lived as long he did. Unbelievable that he could be so frantic, and accurate all at the same time. Amazing!!

Peace 🙏

@ Wsanjose01 : I was also at that Bridge School when Pete showed up. He played quite well & sang well.

The Who were fans of Neil young , apparently.

Was that same year as Metallica acoustic? That was ‘97 or ‘96. Bowie was great!

Pete was a crazy good drummer in every way.

Above I said Pete was a crazy good drummer, of course I meant Keith Moon!

Bowie’s set was fantastic. I became a fan. Previously I didn’t care. But to hear him play the song that Nirvana had covered, Man Who Sold The World, was incredible, Cobain having died just a few years earlier.

Marilyn Manson showed up one year and joined somebody, maybe Alannis.

Received an invitation to a Patron Zoom Meeting with Neil Young and his Archives Team, will be at 10 am (PDT). The time indicates that they kept the Europeans in mind this time. Is there something that the Europeans should know? A tour announcement?

Yes, I hope so!

Hi All

Notes from today’s Patron call:

Neil looks well sitting on the floor in his sunny living room in Malibu with a nice open fire in the background and his super vintage Artistico Pergurtorio t-shirt that was a gift from the ranch days.

Yes, the big amps will be going on tour with CH! They set them up last week.

Rev Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir will support….

Setlist: they are all working on it. But Neil just discovered something from when recorded Cortez. There was a power cut and lost some verses but Neil has FOUND THE LYRICS FOR THE LOST VERSES. He is going to try and work out where they fit in the song by looking at the cuts in the original master.

New tour always feels different.

May play something off of Psychedelic Pill.

Bus is renewable diesel.

Having Micah join was a no brainer. Keeps the Horse simple.

There will be an acoustic portion of the shows.

DH Lovelife will film. May go to theatres first. Possibly as a double feature with Harvest Time.

Old Black is in excellent shape.

Linkvolt in in good shape too. Just got back from fix up after damage ardour covid.

Neil watched the eclipse in Malibu.

Neil asks for everyone to keep those cards and letters coming.

Audience keeps him going.

Neil just sent Graham Nash the acetate for the Filmore 1969 but Willy has covid (for the fourth time!). Neil feels indoor shows have a lot higher risk of getting covid.

Vol 3: Not on the shelf behind John. More audio verite in it. Scene of Briggs, Nicolette and Neil at a table and them singing things for the first time. Film “Across the Water” is a great CH film. It is very big. Much bigger than the other volumes.

Thought they would have 4 volumes when started. Vol 3 covers 30 years and 4 will cover another 30. So stick to 4 volumes. Started on Vol 4. It is a monumental task but Neil enjoys making it and listening/finding things. Nico and Neil have begun mixing. A lot of original analogue mixes for it as at this stage he went back to only recording on analogue masters. Why vinyl form this era sounds as it should.


At 4/15/2024 02:21:00 PM, Blogger Greying Rider said...


No albums he would re-record because he did not like the production. Does not like redoing things.

Neil will play Farm Aid this year.

Neil’s wrists are feeling great. He has laser and sound/vibration treatments that he can feel makes a difference.

Fuckin’ up is basically a live performance of Ragged Glory. You can hear the freedom of Neil in it.

Neil says he’ll see what happens x suggestion of Arc 2 feedback album. Neil has no interest in anything particular. He’s not going to try and plan things or think about it. When he feels it, he’ll go into the studio.

The best invention for recording music is the microphone as key to getting the sound.

Neil is working on a lyric book and looking at After The Goldrush he thinks we are not losing ground on the environment compared to the past. Nothing will change until we change. He admits he could be wrong but thinks the issues are intense.

Neil will look at the 2009 Glastonbury gig and maybe release.

Neil was hanging out with Stills recently and did the CSNY 1969 with them and John Hanlon. They listened to Rhino’s digital mixes and this pissed Neil off and so they found the analog tapes and redid it. Sounds amazing. There is an 18 minute Down By The River with Stills smokin’ it (and Neil says he may already have smoked it!).

Canary making progress. Sci-fi book. Neil talks about his Dad’s work.

Model Railway is fantastic. Another video coming soon. It’s outside of the scope of what people think he should be doing and so that makes it even better for Neil.

There are plans to record video and/or audio from the Roxy gig but not ready yet. It’s all there. Maybe Vol 4.

There is an all new archive storage area. John says it’s not set-up to be visually interesting but they’ll see what happens about doing another video walking around it.

Neil would come to Europe but just not a plan to do it yet. After this Summer he’ll be open to new areas. Does not want to tour all year long though. Would like to go to Australia as there are cool people and they are really into it.

Poncho is doing pretty good gardening and swimming on the big island in Hawaii. He just wanted to do something else.

Neil announces Hollywood Bowl Crazy Horse gig on September 29th. Pre-sale announcement later today!

They have Deer Creek from the 1992 solo acoustic tour with a good film. In the Volume 4 pocket.

Neil is using a Hugo TT2 DAC. He gets up to check it.

Fireside sessions were special to covid and Colorado.

There will be more timeline performances.

Daryl has made a new Video “From Before and After the Show” with 80-90% of songs that are not on Before and After. Shows what it is like in real life to be on the road.

Neil likes the idea of PONO 2. Streaming killed PONO.

No NHL playoff predictions.

Its good to share.

Well, there are others who will have caught more of the info. But from what I understood there are no scheduled projects at this time to go to Europe or Down Under. Neil Young spoke of the upcoming US and Canada tour as happening "this summer" and that he's open for further plans after that. Neil Young also mentioned that he still will stick to outdoor venues because of potential covid infections. He said that Graham Nash now goes through his fourth dance with the virus and he, Neil, does not want to have one of his concerts become a hotspot event. Playing outdoor events beyond September in western or central Europena venues is a questionable idea. So that's why I conclude that Europe is off the table for now.
He announced an additional Horse show at the Hollywood Bowl in September though. Good for you guys. I saw quite a few of Thrasherswheat readers and contributors being part of this zoom call. So please, bring on the minutes.

I've never been to the Hollywood Bowl. Always wanted to, but it's never happened. Hopefully, that will change in September....

At 4/15/2024 06:09:00 PM, Blogger Alan said...

@ Richie Cruz : I also never made it to the Hollywood Bowl despite growing up in Santa Monica. But I do have a great Doors Blu Ray from there. Jim drops acid at show start and we all get to watch the progression. It’s a great show. Also there is a funny documentary with the Doors looking back on that day. Robbie got every Marshall stack in the city & had them all set up. But the fire Marshal said no way, and he only got to plug in 1! The original idea was to have people all over LA hearing the show.

I am hitting 2nd night of tour in SD but will not be at the Hollywood Bowl show.

Sorry our European members won’t get the chance to see NY+H this summer.

The Hollywood Bowl sucks, glad they are playing another show and I will be there, but the venue sucks

Excellent update Greying Rider! Many thanks for sharing all the details.

What's wrong with the Hollywood Bowl? I've heard that the place is a little stiff vibe-wise, but the sound supposedly is good, and visually it seems pretty cool.

At 4/15/2024 08:43:00 PM, Blogger GDTRFB71 said...

This is certainly just my opinion, and I am not trying to start an argument with anyone, but I genuinely dislike going to the H.bowl for shows. I saw the '12 NYCH show and it was great, and the sound was good, but getting to the Bowl can be a hastle, the front two sections are Box seats, and the normal seats start almost half way back, the place is just big. If there is a GA pit for this show, and I can afford it, and am lucky to get down there, then maybe I will change my opinion on this, but in general, I have been there six times, and it is just not a place I ever look forward to going. It certainly is a famous place and worth the experience at least once.
