Neil Young's "Heart Of Gold" Concert Film

Mrs Blog and I went to the new "Heart Of Gold" Neil Young concert film over the weekend. Filmed by Jonathan Demme last August at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Neil and friends perform all but one of the songs from the recent "A Prairie Wind" CD, as well as a good number of past Neil Young favorites. The all-acoustic program is a delight for guitarists, as we get some extreme closeups of chord positions and picking. (When I try to play Neil songs without a pick like he does, it sounds like a muddled mess.)

For a roundup of stories and reviews, I direct you to Thrasher's website.

Neil Young sucks.

When I saw the movie last weekend, I learned that I had been singing a line from "I Am A Child" incorrectly, lo these many years.

The line is, "What is the color when black is burned?" I always thought it was "...black is brown." It was worth the trip to E. 12th St. for that alone--the rest of the movie was an added bonus. :-)

re: " Neil Young sucks."

No, he doesn't.
