She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain premiere; zoundtrack + video

She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain premiere. Neil Young and Crazy Horse still have it. Turning and dancing.

Jesus Chariot liner notes:

Written in the 1800s based on an old Negro spiritual, this song refers to the second coming of Jesus and “she” is the chariot Jesus is coming on. Some interpret this as the end of the world. Others have said that “she” refers to union organizer Mary Harris “Mother” Jones going to promote formation of labor unions in the Appalachian coal mining camps. The Americana arrangement continues the folk process with a new melody, a new title and a combination of lyric sources.

untracked version is here.

“This song, as with all the songs on the record, have been paired up with archival footage. This footage is from an early scene in D.W.  Griffith’s controversial 1915 film Birth of a Nation, in which the  Southern Cameron family hosts a farewell ball for soldiers fighting  for the Confederacy.

“Lord sing halleluja”, jessas. About the Euphemisms of today. May it be, that Neil here finally gets political? The Confederacy?

O Susanna. video

Oh Crazy Horse here it is, the official video or such, the “Oh Susanna” piece, with the B-A-N-J-O on the knees…

Very Americana.

 

Neil Young & Crazy Horse “Oh Susanna”

from Merchants of Rock:

“It’s been nine years since the release of a proper Neil Young and Crazy Horse album, and needless to say the announcement of the new disc aptly titled Americana due out on June 5th has been met with a great deal of excitement.  That said, a recent interview with Neil divulging details about the new album consisting of “mostly grade school tunes” was a bit confusing, and honestly tempered a bit of the excitement for many of us.

Well, if you haven’t figured this out by now, Neil Young is going to do pretty much whatever he wants to do, and for the most part he is going to do it well.  I admittedly was a bit baffled as to how the “grade school” jams were going to work out, but after checking out The Horse’s take on one of the first songs I ever heard “Oh Susannah” I have to say I am quite intrigued.  When it comes to standards, it’s all about the performance and the arrangement and Neil and the Horse have done a good job with both.”
