Neil young: Heart of Gold

1 h 43 min2006PG
Jonathan Demme-directed concert footage of rock legend Neil Young. Having just lost his father, turned 60 himself and had a rather nasty cerebral aneurysm, none of which interrupted the work on his latest album unless absolutely necessary, you might think the last thing on Neil Young's mind in August 2005 would've been live shows.
Rentals include 30 days to start watching this video and 48 hours to finish once started.

A lot of Neil Young fans just seem to buy the odd one of his records these days. In so doing, it's easy to just assume he's gently losing his way, or isn't as vital as he used to be. That is just a mistake, and this film is the most potent evidence of this fact. I've been away from the music buying game for a while, and now I'm back I've been acquainting myself with Shakey's more recent output. On the whole, he is still magnificent.

This performance shows a performer reaching old age, reflecting on family and the state of the world, and producing some genuinely moving and relevant songs. Young has integrity in spades, and to quote the man himself, he is "as real as the day is long". I have not felt such sincerity in a performance... probably ever. It is absolute proof of Young's passion for music, and as such is beautiful and inspiring. I can think of no one else today producing such personal and yet universal music.

With it's country feel it's probably not for all Young's fans, but it's another fine addition to a remarkable body of work that, along with the recent "Lving With War" and "Performance" series hints at a great deal more vital work still to come - both new compositions and archive material.

This is one of those rarities,a neil young recording that doesn't immediately hit the mark.
This is a seperate, stand alone DVD unlike anything he has issued lately(his last few cd's have included Dvd Limited editions with them) and although this was a cinema relase,it does seem rather pointless as it covers ground that is already released,however with the inclusion of his wife Pegi,and country music icon Emmylou Harris all is not lost the concert recording is crisp and clear but the whole affair has a "run of the mill" feel to it that just doesn't do Young any Favours.
The band interviews offer some information as to the point of the concert which takes place in Nashville,but as to why it was filmed is a mystery.
The mention of the death of his father is very moving and it seems that he still has a longing for those days when he used to shoot food on the wide open prairies of his native Canada,and tellingly it is the old songs that shine through. .

Can not agree with some of the reviews The dvd is wonderful emotional moving and shows that Niel is still a special singer just as he was when I saw him in the seventies

A good old traditional concert with musicians who just play what they are used to. Of course they are clever and plays well together, but it is quite traditionell. Neil has made more intens things than this, but that was long time ago, also for me. He has also made much worse stuff from time to time. This sounds more like his old nice stuff, Neil sings and plays softly (only lacking intensity), but what they do here they do very well.
AUDIO is very good, PICTURE not what you can get out of DVD, but OK enough

Settle down and get real with Neil
Verified purchase
Depth of spiritual warmth and charm. Playing Hank William's guitar, he sings in his living room - pun intended - with a cast of loving friends and wife on the big stage. Did I mention song smithing, the sound and arrangements? A new universal hymn, as well. He has the guts to bare the whole soul, cool or square. These people just step up and blow away the business. Is it really nostalgia? No, no, no. It is a morsel of timelessness, reaching for moments in time where one could really say, "I'm free", even now.

Absolutely brilliant! It's Neil Young so what else would you expect? Destined to be remembered long after the vacuous Take That, Cheryl wot's 'er name, One direction, etc. ad nauseum are just a footnote in history.

I was not a Neil Young fan the first time I saw this. However, I did find many of the tracks varied from very pleasant, to exceptionally good. There tracks do grow on you. In fact, there is a smashing middle section to this concert, which includes Heart Of Gold,

Die hard fans, would of bought this because of the play list. All of the tracks are well performed. What more could they ask for ?? .
