Record store bootleg blues

Neil Young at record store

 

 

 

 

A 1971 video of Neil Young confiscating a CSNY bootleg album from a record store was making the rounds on social media this weekend.

The rare footage shows Young meandering through a record store, discovering bootlegged albums, including a Dylan album, and leaving the store with the CSNY album, saying he should not have to pay for it.

The record store clerk is confused, doesn’t recognize Young, and they end up calling a higher-up on the telephone.

Young leaves the store with the album.

Fun viewing.

 

 

In a Feb. 2015 interview at Consequence of Sound, Neil Young said that the recent resurgence of vinyl albums is merely a “fashion statement.”

“It’s a niche and it’s a great niche and it’s a wonderful thing and I hope people continue to enjoy vinyl and it continues to grow, because it’s a good thing,” Young went on to say, before adding the caveat that we live in a “convenience-oriented society and vinyl is not a convenient thing.”

But me I’m not stopping there,
Got my own row left to hoe
Just another line in the field of time
When the thrashers comes, I’ll be stuck in the sun
Like the dinosaurs in shrines
But I’ll know the time has come
To give what’s mine.
