Default Neil Young - Heart of Gold DVD



I just borrowed and watched the two disc deluxe edition of Jonathon Demme's Neil Young Nashville biopic.
It's okay. I personally prefer when he 'rocks out' on 'Old Black', which only makes one appearance here, in the hands of someone else.

Recorded in Nashville's "Grand Ol Opry" theatre home, the Ryman Auditorium, with the band that had just recorded the unreleased "Prairie Wind" album in 2006. He'd just been diagnosed as having a brain aneurysm and his father had recently died.
A very slick production considering the short amount of time they had to pull it all together.

Neil uses Hank Williams old Martin, on both the album and the film.
Also features Emmylou Harris, who in my opinion never looked finer!

Kinda funny really as I came out and checked the "What are you listening to" thread here, during a coffee break, to find two people consecutively were listening to Neil.
(You know you're spending too much time here when others start channeling you).
