Mother Earth on Pumpy

Mother EarthThis video from the Neil Young channel is being passed around social media.

Comments are declaring it’s the best version ever done on “Old Pumpy.”

The filming itself is also excellent, great shot of Neil playing from above.

Young added lyrics to the song, which originally appeared on his album Ragged Glory. “Respect Mother Earth and her healing ways,” he sings. “Don’t trade away our children’s days.” The Honour The Treaties concerts –held in Toronto, Regina, Winnipeg and Calgary — raised funds for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defense Fund. It also sparked debate among Canadians about the oilsands and some criticism of Young.

    The pump organ is always great! The “Schweineorgel” :mrgreen:

    The video for “Mother Earth,” shot Jan. 19 at the Jack Singer Concert Hall in Calgary, also uses aerial imagery of Alberta’s oilsands taken from Peter Mettler’s documentary Petropolis.

The songs just happened. First thing in the morning, I\'d pick up a guitar, play two or three chords and go, \"That\'s the blueprint. That\'s what my soul told me, so that\'s what it is.\"
Then I\'d go to the studio. I would write the words, without guitar, in my car. I\'d keep stopping on the way -- write two verses, go a hundred yards, stop, write some more. I kept moving, and writing, until I got to the studio.
Whatever I had then, that was the song. \"Devil\'s Sidewalk\" -- the recording is the first time I sang it, the first time the band had ever heard it.
