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.”

 

Mojo wants to know your top Neil album picks

Mister Soul, Neil YoungMojo magazine out of the UK invites you to have a little fun by sharing with them your top Neil Young album picks.

The magazine writes: “This month we’re delving back into the 45-year-strong back catalogue of a Canadian singer-songwriter whose music has oscillated from acoustic balladry to countrified rock, electronic experimentation to gnarly rockabilly, film soundtracks to anti-war polemic.”

Polemic? Had to look that one up:

“a strong written or spoken attack against someone else’s opinions, beliefs, practices, etc.” 

It goes on” “Which Neil Young albums are the best? And why? What about 1969′s hard-rocking Crazy Horse debut Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere or the following year’s solo work After The Gold Rush? Then there’s mega-hit Harvest and the mid-’70s Ditch Trilogy. Don’t forget his late ’70s run of albums – American Stars ‘n Bars, Comes A Time, Rust Never Sleeps – and his ’80s sonic adventures. What about the raging Ragged Glory and Sleeps With Angels or more recent releases such as Fork In The Road and Psychedelic Pill?”

Random Quote

So I spoke to my old friend Bruce and told him I was feeling it, his loss of Clarence. We talked for quite a while, and there is no need to go into what two old friends had to say to each other at this point, except to say that two old friends spoke to each other about their music, their muses, their partners in crime, their proof, their friendship, their souls and their lives. Ben Keith was my Clarence Clemons. Clarence Clemons was Bruce\'s Ben Keith. When he died last year it touched me to the core. I don\'t want to ever think of any one else playing his parts or occupying his space. No one could. I can\'t do those songs again unless it\'s solo. So I told Bruce, \"Waylon once looked at me and said, \'There\'s very few of us left.\'\" He liked that. I told him when he looked to his right I would be there. That\'s enough. I\'m not talking about that anymore.
