Children of Destiny

Enjoy the latest musical release by Neil Young and the Nelson brothers from Promise of the Real, along with your Independence Day festivities.

According to Rolling Stone,”Children of Destiny”  is directed by  Shakey Pictures, combines footage of recent large-scale protests alongside patriotic imagery like children waving American flags and Fourth of July cookouts.

“Preserve the land and save the seas for the children of destiny / The children of you and me,” Young sings on the track. “Stand up for what you believe / Resist the powers that be / Preserve the ways of democracy so the children can be free.”

A 56-piece orchestra; in total, 62 musicians played on the track.

Let your freak flag fly, baby….

 

 

“That’s my pledge, judge”

If you haven’t checked out Neil Young’s video “My Pledge,” do it now.

Rolling Stone writes:  “The clip opens on a pile of old letters and notices that are cleared to make room for a piece of lined paper that begins to fill with Young’s words, which he both speaks and sings with thick Auto-Tune throughout ‘My Pledge.’

The initial letter is folded into a paper boat and sent across a sea of stamps, after which Young’s vivid lyrics and the images and people they evoke – including Jimi Hendrix, John F. Kennedy and Florence Nightingale – appear on an array of postcards.”

It’s a beauty, very haunting.

The song is include on the album: “Peace Trail.”

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.”

 

Merry Xmas Ymas

xmas-Neil

Happy season of the spirit of peace and goodwill on earth.

To Zumans and Rusties and all who enjoy Neil Young’s music and his activism, as he tries to leave a lasting imprint on Mother Earth.

Let’s keep on rockin’ in the free world, and help others to do so as well.

“Went looking for faith on the forest floor, and it showed up everywhere. In the sun, and the water, and the falling leaves, the falling leaves of time.”

~N.Y.
