Neil plans “Honor the Treaties” benefit concerts, & London in summer

neil_young_glasto09_ge_12Neil Young announced Monday that he will perform four benefit concerts in his native Canada to raise funds for a legal defense fund supporting the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation in “challenges against oil companies and government that are obstructing their traditional lands and rights,” according to a press release, and published in USA Today.

The “Honor the Treaties” shows — a title referring to the last and largest of 19th century land agreements between First Nation and the government of Canada, guaranteeing protection of the ACFN’s lands, rights and ecosystems — will be staged in January. Young will be joined by fellow Canadian artist Diana Krall as special guest.

Cellar Door

Chameleonic words. Wonder if Maxwell will find himself again.

“Here is Jackson Maxwell, Please share the link to my review of the new Neil Young album coming out on 12/10. http://www.guitarworld.com/acoustic-nation-first-listen-neil-young-s-live-cellar-door-releasing-december-10th “

It goes about Cellar Door, “Live At the Cellar Door is notable for containing Young’s first public performances of “Old Man” and “See the Sky About To Rain.” “Old Man” is still in its nativity. Stripped of the banjos, pedal steel, and soaring vocals of the version that would later appear on his next album, Harvest, it isn’t quite a masterpiece yet. However, “See the Sky About To Rain” is absolutely exquisite. Young’s piano playing moves the track along with more passion and power than the hazy, country-ish studio rendition that would appear three years later on On the Beach.”

 

More rumors, new Neil album of all covers?

Third Man Records phone booth

Scott Sandie from the Neil Young Appreciation Society is reporting that Neil Young’s next album was recorded in Jack White’s record booth.

According to Scott:

“It should be out sometime in the new year.  I don’t know its release details but would be surprised if it’s only available via Third Man.  But this is Neil, so who knows. I anticipate this will be a very big seller.  It is an album of covers.  In it, as anticipated,  he pays tribute to other renowned singer-songwriters.  There are 12 tracks on it. There are no Neil Young originals, but…each side starts with an introduction (part 1, part 2) of the same title.  That could be a Neil Young original although I have another theory on what these might be…  A couple of the songs chosen will astonish you.  Sorry for the secrecy but more on this might leak soon…”

Thanks BH & Scott….
