Neil Young & Crazy Horse: The final clementine video

Neil-Young_Crazy-Horse_Clementine-final-version After two being seen in the last couple of days involving knives thrown at children, here is the final.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse, ‘Clementine’ — Exclusive Video Premiere

For Americana, Neil Young’s first album with the band Crazy Horse in nearly nine years, the singer-songwriter revisits classic American folk songs and delivers the tunes, which encompass familiar protest songs, murder ballads and campfire songs, with electrifying ferocity. In spite of — or perhaps because of the approach, the universal appeal of the songs is neither lost nor diminished and they retain their relevance in these challenging times.

Clementine,” the oft-sung tale of a grieving miner, which has become a popular children’s song, is believed to be based on a 1863 song titled “Down by the River Liv’d a Maiden,” by H.S. Thompson. However, Neil writes in the Americana liner notes that the song is usually credited to Percy Montrose or Barker Bradford from about 1884.

“The Americana arrangement extends the folk process using many of the original words and a new melody,” explains the music icon. “The song tells the story of either a bereaved lover recalling his lost sweetheart, or a father missing his lost daughter. In both cases the daughter has drowned in an accident. The verse about Clementine’s sister has been omitted from most children’s versions. This verse has different meanings depending on whether the point of view of the singer is taken as the lover or the father.”

The video for “Clementine” — and for all of the clips produced for Americana — is authentic “found” footage, adding a unique visual element to a project steeped in our nation’s rich, lyrical history.

Americana marks the first time the complete Crazy Horse line-up of Neil, Billy Talbot, Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro and Ralph Molina have worked together since 1996’s Broken Arrow.

Americana will be released June 5.

viral “Oh my Darling Clementine”

How I missed it

Jesus Chariot, She comes around the Mountain – lyrics, transcribed

next question would be to ask, what it has to do with:  Birth of a Nation and Amos and Andy. To quote C-Man:

“interesting that he picked Birth of a Nation, a film as controversial today as it was then, if not even more so due to todays inexplicable tendencies to over PC eVerYthIng. Some works of the past are so socially offensive by todays standards that they have been suspended/censored from publicaton to the general public.. Amos and Andy being a perfect example. They were two black geniuses of humor but their work is nearly unknown today because the stereo typing of their characters is considered embarrassingly offensive to our racially sensitive culture despite the fact that much/most of their humor poked fun at those very stereo types.”

here some transcribed lyrics, and thanks to those who know it!

She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain premiere; zoundtrack + video

She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain premiere. Neil Young and Crazy Horse still have it. Turning and dancing.

Jesus Chariot liner notes:

Written in the 1800s based on an old Negro spiritual, this song refers to the second coming of Jesus and “she” is the chariot Jesus is coming on. Some interpret this as the end of the world. Others have said that “she” refers to union organizer Mary Harris “Mother” Jones going to promote formation of labor unions in the Appalachian coal mining camps. The Americana arrangement continues the folk process with a new melody, a new title and a combination of lyric sources.

Tracked version is here:  npr.org/blogs/…/song-premiere-neil-young-sets-americana-on-fire

untracked version is here.

“This song, as with all the songs on the record, have been paired up with archival footage. This footage is from an early scene in D.W.  Griffith’s controversial 1915 film Birth of a Nation, in which the  Southern Cameron family hosts a farewell ball for soldiers fighting  for the Confederacy.

“Lord sing halleluja”, jessas. About the Euphemisms of today. May it be, that Neil here finally gets political? The Confederacy?

Coming round the mountains
