Neil-Young

New Video: Neil Young and Crazy Horse, “Oh Susannah”

There are wide swaths of the Neil Young catalog that I’m never going to have any use for, but when I heard he was cutting traditional American folk songs with Crazy Horse and a children’s choir, well…I mean, how can you help but be intrigued?

Legendary horse’s ass Jeff Vrabel will fight me on this, but I think the leadoff single from the Americana record, “Oh Susannah,” is worth a listen — and I’m looking forward to hearing the rest. Pre-order Americana here and watch the video — made, as Warner Bros. hastens to tell us, “from actual early American archival footage” — below:

    How old is that smoking kid – five? Tremendous song, even better video.

    Are we sure this is archival footage? Smokin’ Kid kinda looks like Spanky to me.

    You can’t fool me, Vrabel. Southern Man don’t need spelling anyhow!
