Watch Neil Young perform rare songs in new ‘Fireside Session’ live stream
Neil Young has returned with the fourth edition of his ‘Fireside Session’ live stream series and has again decided to revisit some of his rare material.
Taking to his hugely popular ‘Neil Young Archives’ website, the iconic musician performed an eight-song set which has been directed by his wife, Daryl Hannah and held at their Telluride, Colorado home.
In his first edition of the series, Young confirmed he and his wife are taking this on as part of an effort to help those currently forced to stay home amid the crisis: “Because we are all at home and not venturing out,” he wrote of the series, “We will try to do a stream from my fireplace with my lovely wife filming. It will be a down-home production, a few songs, a little time together.”
In the fourth edition of the project, Young has again followed the same pattern but this time kicked things off with an outdoor performance of the Harvest Moon song ‘One of These Days’ as the campfire burns and the sun begins to set.
Moving inside his home, Young revisits Silver and Gold song ‘Good to See’ You for the first time since 1999 and, fittingly, it comes at a time when the record recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. Humorously, Young turns to his wife after performing the track and explains that “could never get it right” and that it “seemed like a simple little song.”
Amazingly, Young moves on to Zuma rarity ‘Through My Sails’ which marked the first time his fans have witnessed him perform the track. Likewise, ‘Daddy Went Walking’ is granted its first-ever outing.
Elsewhere the likes of ‘After the Gold Rush’, ‘Distant Camera’ and more are included.
