Neil Young & The Promise Of The Real "earth"
double live disc set from their 2015 US tour....
audience participation is generally replaced with the sounds
of frogs, pig, goats, horses, cattle, birds, waterfalls, rain,
thunder, cars, honking horns, cicadas, chickens etc etc...
songs were picked from the tour, from what I can gather,
mention the words "nature", "mother nature" or actually are about
nature and the environment...
its like Neil prefers the sound of whales and crows to the applause of
paying members of the audience...
I see where he is coming from with his steadfast belief in highlighting
the problems of the world from an environmentally aspect...
but really Neil, we hear ya mate,
we know where you stand in the scheme of things politically and
socially, but please stop shoving your beliefs down our throats
and in our ears everytime you release an album...
good thing about this one is that there are several tracks
that usually don't get a guernsey very often nowadays
like "after the goldrush", "hippie dream", "my country home",
"love and only love", "human highway" and "vampire blues"....
not really an album for anyone but Neil Young diehards like myself
but be rest assured after several below par albums in a row
my patience with Neil to give me one last 'classic' like
"harvest moon" or "prairie wind" is wearing thin!
there are no links to tracks on this one, well, there are live
links of some of these songs just not the ones with the overdubbed
sounds of nature, so here's Neils explanation for the album:
