Product Description

Amazon.com

Neil Young's 1978 concert tour, documented in this acclaimed two-hour film that was directed by Young himself (using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey), is a treat for the singer-songwriter's fans. The concept of the show is high (for Young, anyway), if rather odd: roadies (here called "Road Eyes") decked out like the Tusken Raiders from Star Wars, stage announcements from the original Woodstock during set changes, and giant amps, microphones, and so on for an "Incredible Shrinking Man" effect. Of course, it's the music that counts, and there's plenty of that, what with nearly 20 songs (including two versions of "Hey Hey, My My," his nod to the punk movement), acoustic and electric (with longtime companions Crazy Horse), dating back to his Buffalo Springfield days ("I Am a Child") and continuing through popular solo numbers like "Cinnamon Girl" and the extended "Like a Hurricane." DVD bonus material includes photos and song lyrics. --Sam Graham

This is Neil at the top of his game. The decade preceding this release saw Young put out all the strongest material that would carry his reputation for the next 25 years. Sure, he would return to form in the late 80's for another strong run, but this is where he and the Horse hit their stride. Crazy Horse is a one trick pony, but that trick is something else when they have it all together, and they have it all together all the way through this DVD.
The stage show is a bit silly in retrospect, the kind of grandstanding he must have done, tongue in cheek, but the music is undeniably powerful. In many cases, these are the definitive versions of these songs, and Young clearly revels in their glories. You'll not find a better version of "Cinnamon Girl" or "Powderfinger" anywhere, and the proof is how well these renditions in particular have stood up.
Of course, it would all go south almost immediately after this tour. Becoming a father to two severely handicapped sons, dealing with failed relationships and a new marraige and trying to keep his private life out of the public eye and out of the manipulating hands of David Geffen would result in some truly awful, often bewildering, constantly changing directions that would span the 80's. Not until the Bluenotes Cd and then FREEDOM would Neil find his groove and court passionately his muse again, but at least at this point, it is as though he is that kid on the dock in "Powderfinger" who is just about to see his face flash in the sky.
This is a landmark concert, well worth watching over and over again. The sound transfer is great.

In 1978 Neil Young firmly put his foot down on the ongoing disco inferno and declared that "Rock and roll is here to stay". He added a trio of exclamation points in the form of three releases, the 'Rust Never Sleeps' LP, the 'Rust Never Sleeps' film, and the soundtrack LP to the film, "Live Rust".
The 'Rust Never Sleeps' film was recorded at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, and stands as the high water mark in Young's storied career. By 1978, everything was in place to define Young as a rock and roll legend. It is a remarkable fact to consider that, despite the stunning songlist offered here, Young included no material from his collaborations with Crosby, Stills and Nash, nor any music from the 1976 Stills-Young Band LP. Only one song, 'I Am A Child', recorded with Buffalo Springfield, was chosen from outside Young's 'solo' works. That means no 'Helpless', 'Country Girl', 'Mr. Soul', or 'Long May You Run'. And Young could only skim the surface of his solo catalog in limiting himself to 18 songs (at 116 minutes this film consumes the entire video cassette), skipping such gems as 'Southern Man', 'Down By the River', and 'Cowgirl In the Sand', and hits such as 'Old Man' and 'Heart of Gold'. How many other artists could afford to leave so much classic material out of a two-hour concert?
One should also consider the place 'Rust Never Sleeps' claims in the history of rock films. By 1978 there had really only been 4 great rock concert films: 'Monterey Pop', 'Woodstock', 'The Concert for Bangladesh' and 'The Last Waltz'. Ironically, Young missed opportunities to appear in the first two films, as David Crosby took his vacated role with Buffalo Springfield at the Monterey Pop Festival, and succumbed to camerafright on Yasgur's farm.

From accoustic to electric, 1978 Neil Young all the way.With Dolby Digital 5.0 plus 2.0 AND DTS, this is and aways will be an amazing concert experience. "Like a Hurricane" can only be experienced by standing up.....wow---a rare treat done so well on DVD.....I missed my dinner by 2 hours planning to watch just a couple songs---beginning to end this is sheer pleasure.

The first concert I ever saw was this tour at the forum in LA. I was 14 and it changed my life forever. From that point on I knew what I was going to do. GO SEE MORE NEIL YOUNG CONCERTS! To have the first concert you ever seen made in to a movie is worth the 5 stars I am giving. Nevermind that the music is pure punk brillance with out the misguided angst that most punk rockers possess. You'll never hear guitars this grungy again. EVER! Neils guitar is like an atomic bomb. There is no sound bigger.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse are in top form in this film of the 1978 tour. From start to finish, Neil shows why he is one of the most vital singer/songwriter/musicians of our time. The music takes you up and down, but satisfies at every level. If you are a fan of real Rock & Roll, then this is a must-have video.

I haven't seen this movie in years and, like the other reviewers, only wanted to see one or two songs but could not stop watching! It is the rock n' roll dream that I fell asleep to nightly come true with it's fantasy 'road eyes' waking up a sleepy child-like Neil among oversized anvil cases who roams the stage grinning and mumbling only to fall asleep again at the sets end as if he never was awake. The electric set becomes even more surreal as a pinhead and mad scientist in white lab coat join in with the woodstock soundtrack blaring behind them. I get goosebumps when Neil breaks into 'Sedan Delivery' while the mad doctor fixes his mike! I know there's philosophy and magic to this film, I just can't properly describe it! See it for yourself....
