Neil Young Streams Fireside Sessions
And It’s Packed With Rarities
Neil Young brings out his rarities for the first installment of his Fireside Session. He posted a stunning six-song acoustic set on his Neil Young Archives website. It’s directed by his wife Daryl Hannah and filmed at their home in Telluride, Colorado.
Before launching into the second track, Young says: “I hope you’re doing well. And I hope everything is OK in your house and I hope you have a place to be where you’re with your loved ones.”
Young and Hannah also wrote on the site: “Happy to have you hang with us for a little while. It’s pretty rough around the edges, as any down-home/low tech slow interwebs production could be. … Hope you enjoy. Take care. Sending love and we’ll try to keep ’em coming.”
The setlist includes “Sugar Mountain,” “Vampire Blues,” the 1974 non-album cut “Love/Art Blues,” “Tell Me Why,” “Razor Love,” and the Hawkes & Doves deep cut “Little Wing.”
The couple hopes to make this an ongoing series but they didn’t say when the next film will be uploaded. Check out his first Fireside Session here.
Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, more and more musicians are getting creative with ways to continue performing for their fans while staying at home. Let’s hope Young drops the next show soon.
