"Neil Young: Heart of Gold" is a love letter to the consistency and familiarity of Neil Young's voice, a floating silver reed with all the colors of moonlight in it. The songs are from Young's albums "Prairie Wind" (2005), "Harvest Moon" (1992), and "Harvest" (1972). For the premiere of "Prairie Wind" Young gathered long-time band mates and old friends like Emmylou Harris for a performance that has the feel of a casual reunion picnic. Held at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium--the original home of the Grand Ole Opry, and a room with what may be the finest acoustics in the universe--the whole ensemble nattily attired in neatly tailored traditional western get-ups, it is as if the ghosts of the Ryman are singing through them. Young's songs speak to ensuring continuity between the past and the present, while cutting a path into the future, and he and his fellow performers open themselves so wholly to their surroundings that they become a part of it.

What a great performance by Neil Young and his band. Most of the tracks are from his "Prairie Wind" album, the one where he used Hank Williams' old Martin dreadnaught for most of the tracks. I'm a big fan of his acoustic stuff and this is some of his best work.

I rarely leave comments, but this is one of my favorite N Young movies specifically because it is shot in the Ryman Auditorium (church to Nashville)The ambiance and the spontaneity of the performances show the true wizardry of ALL the participants especially Ben e King (slide guitar). All time Great Show!

Watching this, is like watching Neil do He-Haw? The only thing missing is the straw hat & bottle of moon shine? Now his dad suffered "dementia" & Niel didnt, go fig.? His dad dies, then he does "the show" & dedicates to Daddy?
Whos suffering from "dementia"?
