Neil Young: Songwriting & Old Men (Live & At Home, 1971)

Absolute homegrown ephemera gold courtesy of a 1972 Germany documentary which finds Neil Young in a honey slide haze on his fabled Broken Arrow Ranch, work-shopping  “Out on the Weekend” (endearingly amused by his own lyrics), and hanging with Elliot Roberts, the fellas, the dogs, and the cows. The clip also finds Young musing on the imagery of his songwriting, before gorgeously blending a live performance of “Old Man” from only a few weeks prior with footage of the titular muse and Young sharing a smile. More barn, indeed. words /become a member or log in.
