Elyse Weinberg LP features Neil Young, Nils Lofgren

elyse-weinberg-greasepaint-smile-1Exclaim.ca is reporting that the Chicago-based  Numero Group was poking around  Laurel Canyon and discovered an old, unreleased album from folk singer Elyse Weinberg. Its Numerophon imprint will be issuing the sessions, which featured Neil Young, as Greasepaint Smile on September 18.

Young  sings “Houses.”

Numerophon is The Numero Group’s vinyl-only legacy imprint. Aimed at releases featuring plaintive and old-timey folk and gospel, blues, ethnic, field recordings, the musical outpourings of Appalachia, and so on, Numerophon is a label’s evolution run backward, into what Numero might have looked like circa 1948.

Greasepaint Smile was to be the follow-up to Weinberg’s 1969 debut, Elyse. Her first album was issued by Tetragrammaton, but the label went out of business before Greasepaint Smile could be released. That said, a CD repress of Elyse in 2001 via Orange Twin had delivered two tracks from the sessions (“What You Call It” and “Houses”).

“Houses” is especially notable, as it features lead guitar from Young. Of Shakey’s “signature fuzz-tone,” Numero says that it can be heard “casting chaos over the beautiful ballad.” The song has since been covered by the likes of Dinosaur Jr. and Vetiver, among others.
In addition to Young’s guest appearance, the record also includes backup performances from the E. Street Band’s Nils Lofgren, J.D. Souther and Kenny Edwards. It was produced by longtime Crazy Horse cohort David Briggs.

Uncut interview with Poncho

British Summer Time 2014 - July 12thThe end of the year issue of Uncut contains Michael Bonner’s long-version interview with Frank “Poncho” Sampedro.

Bonner writes: “I thought it might be nice to share the full transcript – it’s over 6,000 words long, and covers a lot of ground. We started off talking about the current state of Billy Talbot’s health, the Crazy Horse bassist who’d suffered a minor stroke earlier in the year. For the record, our interview took place on November 3, 2014; a few days before the death of bassist Rick Rosas, who’d deputised for Talbot during the band’s 2014 tour dates.”

Poncho’s favorite memory of Neil from this year?
“That’s hard to think of right at this moment. I could tell you a couple from the year before if I had time to think about it. When we played the Bridge School the last time, we were doing the encore where everybody comes out and sings, we were playing “Rockin’ In The Free World” all acoustic. For some reason, Neil took off his guitar and gave it to Lukas Nelson. He was having a great time playing it. And Neil was trying to give us hand signals of where to go and I was just laughing, “What the hell is going on?” But anyway, months and months after that, we were on the road, we were just getting ready and I said to Neil, “I have a question, it’s really been bothering me, I want to ask you.” He said, “Go ahead.” I said, “Why did you give Lukas your guitar? Did he ask for it, or something?” Neil said, “No, we were just up there playing and singing and he was playing air guitar and I kept looking at him, I thought, ‘Wow, he needs a guitar.’ So I just gave him mine.” I think that’s really cool. It was just like this thing that happened. That was a great moment with Neil. On this last tour, when he started giving away the t-shirts, ‘Protect The Earth’ and everything, he was just so overly sincere about the whole thing. It did bring a good feeling to me. And at the same time, it stresses me out because I just don’t know how to reach everybody and hw to make a change in this world. It’s really frustrating.”

ECHOOOOO Neil – another Euro tour date

Better a little late with this news than never.

Neil Young adds Liverpool to his growing list of tour dates in Europe this summer.

Echo ArenaYoung and his band Crazy Horse will play Echo Arena in Liverpool on Sunday, July 13.

Fans were left disappointed last year after they cancelled their UK tour, including their Liverpool ECHO arena date, writes the Liverpool Echo.

They had been due to launch the opening night of the Liverpool International Music Festival.

They took the decision after Crazy Horse guitarist Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro broke his hand.

The Canadian singer songwriter played the city’s Empire theatre in 1973 as part of his Tonight’s the Night tour with The Santa Monica Flyers.

Echo Arena seats 10,000.

\"It\'s not really a memoir, at least not in the traditional sense. It\'s not chronological and it covers a lot of areas - from the past to the present day, so it\'s like a diary. But it is a memoir, and part of it\'s a projection and a fantasy. It\'s a hippie dream really (laughs). I really enjoy writing. My father was a writer, so I\'ve always known about authors and writing, and now it\'s my time to do it.\"
