Crowd-sourced filmmaker has not given up

Tom Adams, the guy who created the controversial, crowd-sourced video performance at Cargenie Hall, is not about to give up.

Ever since his film has been removed by Warner Brothers – the content mafia – from media sources, he has been fighting to bring it back.

Tom AdamsA recent post on his Reelife Productions blog, Adams writes:

“I am wholeheartedly pursuing making the Neil Young Carnegie Hall crowdsourced concert film available to the public. I’ve contacted Lookout Management and am “waiting to have a discussion” about the best way to make this happen…(I know, I know…don’t hold my breathe)”



He enlists the help of anyone “In the know.”

There’s also an excerpt from a letter he’s written to Young’s manager Elliot Roberts.

Tom Adams speaks out, crowd-sourcing film producer

Tom Adams, producer of the now famous Carnegie Hall full crowd-sourced show from Jan. 7, 2014 posts an open message to Warner Brothers:

(and BNB supports this view)

” While Warner Brothers certainly has the legal right to remove the video I produced, I am frustrated that no one from the company contacted me directly.

Sure, I’m just a small fish in a gigantic pond, but I obviously touched on a nerve here. I simply received a standard email from youtube noting the copyright infringement.

I see the viral nature of this video as an opportunity for Warner Brothers to make a progressive move towards a more modern way of dealing with fan-produced media. I wish they would have seen this as a chance to take a leading role in the rapidly changing world of online media distribution… especially when dealing with one of the world’s most respected and prolific entertainers who, after 40+ years of performing, still has an amazingly solid connection with his fans.

I wish they would have considered an alternative way to preserve and present this magical event to Neil Young’s fans instead of just removing it. So if anyone out there in Warner Brothers-land is reading this, I’m all ears and just a click away:

Full Carnegie Hall Solo Acoustic Show from Jan. 7, 2014







UPDATE, 30 Jan 2014: The video was taken down by Warner Bast. due to a copyright claim. Elliot will be happy, but not Neil, we think. Thank god it’s saved in the Undernets.

Rolling Stone review of Carnegie first night

Neil Young Stuns With a Spellbinding Carnegie Hall Show
The marathon set featured a wealth of Seventies classics

Neil Young performs at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

When Neil Young walked onstage for the first of his four-night stand at Carnegie Hall, nobody in the audience had any idea what sort of show he was about to present. His previous theater tour in 2010 was a bizarre (and ultimately unsatisfying) mixture of solo acoustic and solo electric tunes, concentrating on hits and selections from his then-unreleased LP Le Noise. The last time he launched a solo acoustic tour was eleven years ago in Europe, and those crowds heard a complete performance of his rock opera Greendale, which wouldn’t hit shelves for another four months. More recently, he played a set at Farm Aid last year that consisted almost entirely of other people’s songs. If the man’s anything, he’s unpredictable.

Thankfully, Neil Young had no such surprises for the capacity crowd at Carnegie Hall. Instead, he treated them to an absolutely jaw-dropping two hour and 20-minute show that focused largely on his golden period of 1966 to 1978. He only deviated from that era for two songs from 1992’s Harvest Moon, the 1989 obscurity “Someday” and a pair of covers by Phil Ochs and Bert Jansch. The opening notes of classics “Harvest,” “A Man Needs a Maid” and “On the Way Home” sent shockwaves of recognition and joy through the crowd, who then listened to them in near silence. It was, without a doubt, one of the greatest Neil Young shows of the past decade, at least when he wasn’t playing with Crazy Horse.
