In my continued effort to bring all you Cream readers the best in Nashville related YouTube clips that I can cherry pick, today I offer up this 1984 Nashville Now episode featuring Neil Young. It's a clip that captures Young at an interesting point in his career, as 1984 was the year in which Geffen records sued him for submitting "unrepresentative" work. Considering that he had just followed up his 1983 vocoder- and synth-laden venture Trans with the rockabilly-tinged, Everybody's Rockin', a mere seven months later, only to go on tour with Waylon Jennings in support of the (at the time) shelved country record, Old Ways, the label's claim that he was baffling the buying public with his drastic shifts in genre experimentation weren't completely unfounded. Nevertheless, Neil would have to cock-slaughter a newborn on live television to lose any of his credibility or carte blanche, further proven by the interview--covering Nashville's geographical advantages, CSNY and La Pasta machine winner Shirley Neal--and performances of "Field of Opportunity" and "Amber Jean" seen in this video. Young's backing band includes Spooner Oldham, Tim Drummond, Anthony Crawford, Carl T. Himmel, Rufus Thibodeaux and Ben Keith and the interview segment also features a chat with Waylon Jennings. Check out part 1 (above) and parts 2 & 3 after the jump. This nug's for you!
